Bookseller trick or treat! October 30, 2009

Posted by Galaxy in Uncategorized.

Possibly the most fun literary ghost story I’ve come across: AbeBooks lists the top 10 ghostwritten books. You might be surprised by the names of some of the ghostwriters!

There are now four “episodes” available in the Library of Congress’s Exquisite Corpse Adventure–part 1 by Jon Scieszka, part 2 by Katherine Paterson, part 3 by Kate DiCamillo, and part 4 by Susan Cooper. Check in every two weeks for more exciting installments!

If you’re like me and far behind on all sorts of reading, you may not have had a chance to read the New Yorker excerpt from Wild Things, Dave Eggers’ novelization of Where the Wild Things Are.

Not really literary, and also an older article, but it seems like a good time to pull out this story about a scientific study of the odds of humanity surviving a zombie attack. Remember–aim for the head.

DON’T FORGET: For a Spooktacular time tonight (Friday, October 30) – Free Halloween Clipart-Raven in a Dead Tree . Click Here to Get Free Images at Clipart Guide.comhead to Stardust Books for their POE-try Slam. It begins at 7:00, the suggested donation is $1 (all donations go into a pot that will be awarded to the best poet of the evening by specially selected judges) and costumes are encouraged!

Poets: Bring one spooky or seasonal poem and one poem on a subject of your choice to perform for the audience.

We’ll start the Slam off with a dramatic reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.” It’s guaranteed to be a Fangtastic evening!

Happy Halloween!!
