We tend to avoid the big, banal blockbusters (and the more lurid fare) in favor of beautifully written explorations of the unknown, many of them obscure, all of them extraordinary.
[Note from the Moderator: A couple of years ago, we changed our group name from "Literary Horror" in order to expand our sphere of interests. Our enthusiasms embrace Gothic, Weird Fiction, and Noir, as well as much that might be classified as Horror, but we also appreciate literary fiction that cannot be easily fitted into a marketing niche. In fact, this latter group has evolved into our primary focus.

We will break down each issue into a series of discussions about ANY titles mentioned in that particular issue of Bookmarks, making the site easy for navigation and contribution.
By creating this group, we hope to bring together other subscribers of this amazing magazine and have interesting discussions on the books we choose (individually) to read from each issue.
As a new feature, we will nominate and vote for two books each month that were featured in the magazine to read as a group. (This is optional!)
We have many other book discussions and book games in progress - there is something for everyone, and we guarantee adding to your tbr list...thanks to Bookmarks!
