    Four Zombies:

    And, of course, PS's Pet Semetary!

    I didn't get a number one this time:

    I like the edition very much but am disappointed that Pet Semetary is about 1/8th of an inch taller than Christine. That doesn't display the attention to detail that I expect from the best small presses, but it is more than acceptable.

    Nice additions! I really like Restless Shadows! Thunderstorm always puts out great looking books.

    Really like the adds. I to want to read more of the classics that I have yet to read. Both of these I might have to check out.

    I loved The Count of Monte Cristo but have neve read Les Miserables. May have to add that one to the ever growing TBR list.

    An excellent choice, Squire!!!

    Both The Count of Monte Cristo and Les MisÚrables are probably amongst the most important and greatest pieces of French literature ever written and they are both in my top ten favourite books of all time. I absolutely guarantee that you will love them!!!

    Here's my BJF library. I missed out on the ARC and HC of The Painted Darkness and the ARC of Dreamlike States (though I have S/L coming).

    That's a very good collection of Brian's books you have there Squire.

    I have still yet to read any of Brian's work but I certainly intend to start as soon as possible.

    The cover and art of the Rohmer book sure look really good - I love ancient Egypt type stuff - reviews seem very mixed though - regardless it's a very nice addition.

    I love BEE's books and all of them are really sick but AP definitely wins for most disturbing although Glamorama is more violent, I wish he would get back to writing novels and leave Hollywood alone

    That book is very, very disturbing. For Bret Easton Ellis to imagine and write such graphic material, you have to wonder about the state of his mental health. As it's particular prose is written in the first person, I wondered if it was a semi autobiographical account of his own sociopathic fantasies. The guy is clearly not right, definitely misogynistic and could probably do with a psych evaluation.

    I though it was like reading something written by Ted Bundy himself. However, that was the entire point and I do think the shocking nature and controversy that surrounds the book is why it has become so successful in the first place.
