Last Sunday Poetry Missed, Post-Halloween Monsters Discovered Instead

Today I played hooky from the Writers Guild’s Last Sunday Poetry Readings (cf. September 29, et al. — and apologies to this month’s featured poets Tony Brewer and Erin Livingston) in part for poor weather, the end of a warm spell but with lots of rain and my feeling a possible touch of a cold, but in larger part to complete a story I’d been working on.  However, perusing my email afterward, I ran across an article from ELECTRIC LITERATURE, courtesy of Tim Waggoner via the Horror Writers Association Facebook page, that in its own way could be just as much fun.  Erudite, fascinating, the piece by J. W. McCormack, originally published on October 30, is titled “31 Fairly Obscure Literary Monsters.”  It can be found (albeit with a slightly, in my opinion, overly long introduction, but scroll down, scroll down!) by pressing here.

Try it, it’s worth reading (and the introduction, if longish, is fun in itself too).
