Dueling Monsters 2011: H.G. Wells vs. H.P. Lovecraft
It's that time of year again,
time for Dueling Monsters!
In this third year of our reading challenge, Fizzy Thoughts and I are delving into some early science fiction/horror stories as we pit H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau against H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu.
Fizzy Thoughts will host the Cthulhu side and I'll host the Dr. Moreau side. The challenge officially begins on October 1, and you'll see posts at each of our blogs that day announcing the kick-off. You can choose to read one or both of the books - whatever works for you.
Sometime during October you will post your review of your chosen book(s) on your blog and provide us with the link (we'll each have a post on our blog for that specific purpose). On Halloween Day, October 31, I'll recap all the Dr. Moreau posts on my blog and Fizzy Thoughts will recap all the Cthulhu posts on her blog.
You don't have to officially sign up now, just start thinking about it. If you do decide to join us feel free to grab a button or two or three.
I'm looking forward to this duel and I hope you are too!
