Event:  Horror Genre Book Club To Be Launched October 9, 2007
Book Discussion Leader:  Scott Blanks, California.     Email:

What do you envision when presented with the word horror? Now, let's be a
bit more specific. What comes to mind when you hear the phrase horror
fiction? Many will think of Stephen King and Anne Rice. Others will picture
Dracula or Frankenstein. Perhaps the tales of Edgar Allan Poe will be the
response. No answer is more or less appropriate than any other, thus
revealing one of the beauties of the horror genre: Horror is in the mind of
the beholder, or in this case, the reader. Horror can be culled from a
multitude of books, including many which would clearly seem to fall outside
of the boundaries of horror fiction. A family saga, containing all the
tragedy that everyday life has to offer, will provide as much horror content
for one reader as a novel penned by a longtime horror author will for the
die-hard horror aficionado. Yet, the horror genre is often misunderstood, or
simply overlooked by many readers.

Come join the horror book club if you dare, where we will discuss everything
from the identity of horror in all its literary forms, to lesser known
authors in an often misinterpreted field of fiction. During our first
meeting, we will decide upon our initial reading selection, as well as dates
and times for subsequent meetings. If you have any questions, suggestions,
criticisms, or other revelations to contribute to the evolution of this
reading group, feel free to contact me at: scottsjb@xxxxxxxxxx
