    The last couple reads: MALORIE by Josh Malerman (enjoyed it but there were some plot issues which should have addressed), HE STARTED IT by Samantha Downing, THE PAIIENT by Jasper Dewitt (a short effective horror novel that makes me want to see what he writes next), THE HOLLOW ONES by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan (a good read which reminds me of Preston/Child’s Pendergast novel except with more of a dark fantasy vibe).

    Currently reading THE END OF OCTOBER by Lawrence Wright. A global pandemic novel that is very compelling and worth your time.

    That made me laugh about house lol. I'm not sure how many are out there but she was watching an animated version. It was on while I was doing other stuff.

    I would love some sort of deluxe edition of WD, and I have looked the one you've posted but just never pulled that trigger before. Maybe a visit to Abes and/or eBay is on the horizon today. (Wonder if I can convince my wife to watch the animated film . . .)

    Thanks for sharing!

    I'm still reading All the Good Indians. Kind of slow goings since I manage at most 10 pages a night before bed.

    Need to rectify that sometime in the near future.

    It's one of my favorite books. And don't be fooled by the premise of a book full of talking rabbits - it's not a cute story and is actually quite horrific at times. And the movie from the 70s is a perfect example that animation is a medium and not a genre (omg it's a cartoon and there's blood - think of the children!)

    As a side note - I haven't seen the new CGI version - it just didn't look very good.

    I'm excited to get this one. My copy from SST is on its way from CD (might actually be here tomorrow?) but who knows when I'll get through it.

    Started The Sorrows by Jonathan Janz. 100 pages in and liking it so. Very traditional gothic feel to it. Though at times it also definitely feels like an author's first book.

    Got about half way through A Season in Carcosa ed. by Joseph Pulver. There were a couple of decent stories, but for the most part the tales were unmemorable.

    Doubtful I ever finish this one.

    On a better note, I'm about half way through The Silence by Tim Lebbon and thoroughly enjoying it.
