Student Annotations: Horror

Anytime of year, is a great time for a horror read. In a few weeks, I will be posting a summer reading list to tie in with our Metamorphosis theme. It is a list of Werewolf, Zombie, and Vampire books. Get it? They go through a metamorphosis. Kathy came up with the idea and I am making the list.

I have advocated in lectures and in print (Chapter 16), that you should not ghettoize your horror displays to October only. This is a great example of working horror lists into another month.

To get ready here are 2 horror annotations from last semester. One is a well known classic and the other a lesser known work.

I am Legend by Richard Matheson
Fever in the Blood by Robert Fleming
