Taking on a challenge

RIP II Challenge A reading challenge, that is. I found out about it thanks to Stefanie at So Many Books. Carl at the Stainless Steel Droppings Blog issued his second RIP (Readers Imbibing Peril) challenge. One must read 4 scary genre books, or 2 humongous books, or 2 large and one small scary, or just one book that fits the other guidelines. This is for the time frame Sept 1 – Oct 31, 2007. I’m out of scary books here at the house, and will have to adjourn to the library or bookstore. Oh shucks, whatever will I do?

I need to see if I can find another Jonathan Carroll locally. I’ve already read Sleeping in Flame. It was a trip. Does Dan Simmons have anything else out now? I just read Ilium and Olympos. What Gaiman can I get into? Carl suggests Coraline or Fragile Things. Hmmnnn. Decisions, decisions. Do you have any suggestions for books for this challenge?
