Wrap Up: Murder, Monsters, Mayhem

It's November 1, The Day of the Dead and; the end of Murder, Monsters, Mayhem for 2011. The feature, hosted by Jennifer L. at, ran for the month of October and featured a number of bloggers posting reviews about any and all things horror related. It's been a great experience, having discovered a number of print, audio and graphic novel titles that I've added to my wish list and, the opportunity to try something new: reviewing graphic novels! It turns out, that I really groove on it and plan on doing more :-)

There were a couple things that didn't work out for me this year: I had wanted to develop a couple of informal essays about Shirley Jackson; about the movies adapted from Richard Matheson's I am Legend; about the origin of the werewolf tradition... I had wanted to write movie reviews about Dawn of the Dead, Psycho and, Carrie and there are a couple of audiobook reviews still outstanding: Psycho and Frankenstein; but quite simply, life got in the way. That said, I'll be working on ways to improve my productivity for next year's Mx3! Yes! I'm already planning for next year!
