My obsession with vampires started quite young. One night, I realized I was a kind monster, a new me was born.

This novel is one of my top five books that I adored from the original series. It was also one that I looked forward to as I came back to read these stories as an adult.
One of the main reasons why that is is the belief that cameras have the power to steal away parts of our souls or essences completely enthralls me.

Dear reader let us go back on a journey to the past, where the book scene had started to change, in my opinion for the better, and writers like Bruce Coville, Christopher Pike, Lois Duncan, Alvin Schwartz, and of course R.L. Stine emerged with an absolute blazing glory.

When we think of monsters, Blob isn’t the one at the top of the list. However, it is an important one in cinema history and who doesn’t like Blobby!
The Blob monster is not one we necessarily think about when the word monster is spoken. We think about the four original classics: vampires, werewolves, frankenstein and the mummy. However, the monster a blob is could be very dangerous and of nightmarish intentions.
It is very hard to say if the Blob monster had an origin else than the 1958 horror movie with a science fiction twist.

When you hear the name R.L. Stine one of the main reactions is instant recognition and of course an association to the man depending on when you joined in on his writing whether you have been there along the way from Welcome to Dead House, or you joined in his teen books with the Fear Street series.
Maybe you even were a late bloomer and didn’t start until he branched into more adult books with his book Red Rain.
For others you may not have heard or read any of his work and honestly this would not be the article for you.
R.L. Stine like many authors in the 90’s wrote horror in a way that captivated and gave the readers a taste of horror. Continue reading
