Riffle Editor's Choice: Essential Horror Books for February 2018
After a way-too-long hiatus, welcome back to the Essential Horror Books series.
I am more pleased than you can imagine to be back to continue my work after a nasty automobile accident that totaled my car and came close to totaling me. Actually, I escaped with a broken leg several broken ribs, cuts and a legion of bruises.
These weren't life threatening injuries -- although I felt like my life would end when my rescuers had to pull me out of a smoking van without anything to immobilize my broken leg -- ouch!
However, the healing process took time and left me drained and too tired to concentrate. The rehabilitation process took even longer (it is still going on) and delayed my return a bit.
