My Book Memories

The Round Table #2 – “Anthologies”

I was recently invited to share my thoughts on TV and film anthologies as part of a roundtable discussion, hosted by my friends Michael and the Cheetah from “The Inner Circle” blog.

Sometimes I still do.

But as you settle in to this wonderful slice of paradise a tiny chill hits the air. As you search for a jacket you realize it is not a chill that is curling your toes but something dark, forgotten and haunting.
