I‘m not in the headspace for Victorian writing, so rereading an old favourite instead of plugging on with the anthology (I‘m writing urban fantasy for NaNoWriMo, so it‘s also research of a sort).
#scarathlon #teamstoker 1 pt for the post to bring me up to 110.
One more then I‘m done for the night. #teamstoker #scarathlon running total 65 (excluding title game).
I always have mixed feelings about stuff with the Winchester Ghost House, because Sarah Winchester‘s letters indicate that the real reason she never stopped building was so she could tell relatives who wanted to visit “oh, sorry, I would totally let you stay, but I have the builders in...” and I just #relatable
I really enjoyed this book, but if you‘ve bought the collector‘s edition and put it on the shelf without reading it then please pull it down and check that you have a page 431. At least a few copies have a serious misprint, including mine and both the replacements I was sent, and I haven‘t seen much about it.
Kicking off with 30 Days of Night, worth 2 pts for #teamstoker in the #scarathlon. Running total including this will be: 28
5 movies - 5pts
3 theme books - 6 pts
1 halloween book - 5 pts
Posts - 12 pts
I‘ve seen a couple of people counting tv shows and the scavenger hunt, but I don‘t think those count for points so I haven‘t included them in my total.
Vol. 9 of Demonslayer for #teamstoker #scarathlon
Not my fave of the run, but that‘s the first part done. I have English translations for the sequel. This volume contains the halloween edition (with the special cover) so I think that‘s 5 pts, plus 1 for the post.
Caved and read this in one sitting, and I‘ve been forced to face some home truths about myself, because me as a writer = I‘ve got this huge sprawling ‘verse specifically so I can write the genre/characters I feel like writing, but me as a reader = WHAT DO YOU MEAN ALL YOUR FUTURE BOOKS AREN‘T ABOUT THE CROWS? HOW VERY DARE!!!
Anyway, it turns out that what I thought was a random read falls under theme (necromancy), so go #teamstoker #scarathlon
Just finished vol. 8 of Demonslayer. I love the collected volumes for Phobs‘ artwork. (Balor & Yana doing the Who, Us? . I love these two: she‘s the sweetheart with the unfortunate problem that she can be possessed by any demon without her consent; he‘s the asshat ancient nightmare who‘s stuck in her head, but hey, at least he gets to vent his spleen on any demon who tries to possess her).
3pts for #teamstoker with a running total of 17
Hey-diddly-dee, Besoboi for me... (a.k.a Demonslayer). I think this only counts as one for #scarathlon but maybe it‘s 5? (It‘s not a standalone graphic novel, it‘s five comics from the run bound together and you need the rest to get the full story, then the sequel is a different run of comics). #teamstoker
Update on yesterday‘s booksleeve making: the non-pocketed side for a better view of the print. Wish I could use this instead of pumpkin carving 😂. Going to read a bit more of the book before I start work. #draculabuddyread
Horror movies watched so far:
* The Howling
* It (remake)
Reading whilst keeping one eye on the view from my window... #uhhh

It‘s hard to see in the photo, but this cover actually has cut paper layers for the foreground, which I‘ve not seen before.

#7covers7days day 2 #covercrush
It‘s actually kind of rare for me to look for a specific cover for a book, but this one was an exception because it‘s so damned gorgeous.
