The Great Wednesday Compare: Judy Blume VERSUS Beverly Cleary
The winner of the last week's Great Wednesday Compare (H. P. Lovecraft Vs. Judy Blume) with a final score of 8-5 was Judy Blume.
I can't say I'm much of a Lovecraft fan. Though to be fair, I've only read a short story ("The Call of Cthulhu") and a novella (The Shadow Over Innsmouth). Both feature some bizarre fishlike creatures. While I respect the imagination, I wasn't exactly terrified of his scaly monsters. That his work was often categorized as "weird fiction" is no surprise.
Odd that it's now October, and it's the first Wednesday Compare in quite a while not to feature a horror writer. I wonder if it'll come down to Margaret versus Ramona.
