It's time for another installment of Paying it Forward. Looking through all the blogs, there are a lot of good ones to talk about today. I'll limit it to two, though.
First, I found this blog by S.L. Hennessy, where she talks about an extremely important weekend when Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was written. On that same weekend, Lord Byron wrote a piece that later inspired John Polidori's The Vampyre, which later inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula. The whole article can be found here. It is very interesting.
Next up, Stephen Tremp asks if we are sowing the seeds of our own destruction, over at Breakthrough Blogs. Will science go too far? Is the world destined to be destroyed in some B-movie style? Check it out.
Here are the blogs in the Pay it Forward blog hop, starting on the 14th.
So, I went to Wordstock, where I picked up The Luminist, by David Rocklin. It was cool to meet an author I interviewed a while back. The book is beautiful, so far.
What did you do this weekend? Any good blogs you want to share?
