Winter Chills by Monster Librarian

Over at the excellent site, Monster Librarian, they are hosting a Winter Chills Project:

"Winter Chills"  is a collaborative effort to give readers of horror fiction a virtual guide to horror titles for your winter reading.
 For librarians, “Winter Chills” is an opportunity to get reviews and information you need to recommend appropriate titles for readers and make informed decisions about collection development.  In addition to providing reviews of horror titles you might be interested in adding to your collection, “Winter Chills” highlights participating horror fiction review sites that cover both small press and mainstream horror.  
Collaborating review sites include: Horrorworld.orgHellnotes.com, Horror Fiction Review, and MonsterLibrarian.com.
I encourage you to head on over to the Winter Chills homepage and read the reviews.  I have already put a few of the books on my to-read list for the cold days ahead.

What I like about this reviews project, and the others that Monster Librarian periodically sponsors, is that they do not overlap.  The sites work together to split up titles, and are able to make readers aware of a larger number of books by working together.  With horror reviews, I often find the same 5 or 6 books being reviewed, but with this planned project, more books are getting the attention they deserve.  So from all of the librarians and horror readers out there, I thank Monster Librarian and their "Winter Chills" for giving us more options.

Also all four of the participating sites as well as dozens more are always accessible here on RA for All: Horror by using the Horror Resources link in the right gutter of every page of this site.
