Media Monday - Happy Halloween

It's Halloween today, but surprisingly that doesn't have much bearing on Media Monday. Yes, there are lots of vampires and monsters in literature. And if those books last long enough, they can become classics. Frankenstein and Dracula. Beowulf. Tolkien. It's foolish to begin listing them, because the list goes on and on and on....

But when it comes to Halloween-esque writers in Media Monday, the cupboard is pretty bare. Here you'll find a review of Stephen King's new book, although there isn't much horror in it. And toward the very bottom is a short bit about Anne Rice, but that's about as far as it goes.

So here's a treat (or tweet, as it were): I noticed that Colson Whitehead's zombie book Zone One has hit the bestseller list-- in honor of that, I'm going to suggest to all the Twitterers out there that you do yourself a favor and check out: @colsonwhitehead on Twitter. He's bright, funny, articulate, and already has about 95,000 followers. Let's see if we can put him over 100,000. That would be a neat trick.
