Wknd Scene: Book Review

October 21 / 17 Hey! It’s the weekend and I have three things to pass along to you today. First, a book review from Literary Hub. Three books that are the rave is Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders, Whatever Happened to Interracial Love by Kathleen Collins and The Girls by Emma Cline.   Thomas Mallon, The New Yorker – “Saunders does a fine job—and has a fine time—quickening his little necropolis to literary life … Although readers may feel that Lincoln in the Bardohas little in common with the author’s dystopian short stories, there’s actually quite a lot of similarity in preoccupation and technique. Saunders often pays imaginative attention to corporations, bureaucracies, and nomenclature, and he has a predilection for creepy theme parks…In Saunders’s hands, Oak Hill, too, is a kind of theme park, with various rules and precincts and spectacles, as well as opportunities for the author’s parodic gifts … Even with this granular structure and its comic interludes, the book gathers a satisfying momentum, enough to reveal what Saunders has called, in …

Five Scary Short Stories…..

October 18 / 17 Credit source: The Line Up   Ghost In The House I have always been into the paranormal and come from a long line of sensitives/telepathics and have had several paranormal experiences throughout my life. The story I am about to share is a cautionary tale to those who may be wanting to rent or buy a property to do as much research as possible. I wish that my husband and I had. I moved from Ohio to Massachusetts to get a fresh start. After being in Massachusetts for a while and finding myself, I met the person that I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Charlie and I dated for a year. Then, after getting married, we started looking for a place to rent and call our own. It was not long before we found a beautiful little house in a very quiet neighborhood. The house was very overgrown but had a lot of potential, so Charlie and I decided to jump on in. To give …
