    I'm reading The Divine Eccentric: Lola Montez And The Newspapers by Doris Foley (I'm finally into it and it's a short paperback). I am also reading Rain Dogs by Gary McMahon and Racing the Sunrise: Reinforcing America's Pacific Outposts, 1941-1942 by Glen M Williford.

    I’m about a fourth of the way through the first reread in far too many years of Pratchett and Gaiman’s Good Omens. Can’t rememeber how long it’s been but at least 11 years since that’s how long I’ve been using Goodreads.

    I am finally going to sit down and read all of the Richard Matheson Evans Westerns, Journal of the Gun Years, The Gun Fight, By the Gun and Shadow on the Sun. I've had them for years and just haven't gotten to them.

    I Just finished Christopher Golden's "Straight On 'Til Morning". I really enjoyed it. It was one of those times where I just couldn't put the book down even though I had other things to do. Golden is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I've loved some of his other books such as Strangewood, The Boys Are Back in Town, Ararat, Tin Men, & Snowblind. Looking forward to his upcoming "The Pandora Room". Am now going to begin the Centipede Press edition of Gary K. Wolf's "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?".

    Finished the Centipede Press edition of Gary K. Wolf's "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?". Liked it but didn't love it. Definitely different from the movie. Am now reading Al Sarrantonio's "Orangefield" cycle as I was able to score a few of the books I was missing from the cycle (Orangefield & The Pumpkin Boy) the other day at a sale. Have liked the previous books I have read in the cycle and want to read them in the order they were released.

    I have very much been meaning to get to this. Almost picked it up yesterday morning, but went a different route. One day...

    Started Malerman’s DAY OF THE PIG last night...thanks go to Martin for this ARC. A few chapters in, and am not yet convinced this will change my ‘meh’ take on his work, but am sticking with it until I just can’t do it anymore. Contrary to the tone of the previous sentence, I do remain optimistic...I’d really like to see in Malerman what many others do.

    I again bumped this one down on my TBR list, hopefully it will pick up for you. I am currently enjoying 'This Dark Chest of Wonders' and 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'. One being a recent CD release and the other from the last batch of CD ARCs I received.

    Just Finished Al Sarrantonio's "Orangefield" cycle. They were a fun read. Am now staring Joe Lansdale's "Hot in December". I'm a huge Lansdale fan; so, I have high expectations and hope it's as good as its companion piece, "Cold in July".

    I just finished The Bottoms. Fantastic Lansdale novel. Now I'm reading Inspection by Josh Malerman.

    Yeah, I think I pursued it on your strong recommendation. For me his top three:

    1. The Thicket
    2. Paradise Sky
    3. The Bottoms

    Paradise Sky and The Thicker are BETTER? Oh man, and I've been telling myself I don't need to by those two limited editions...

    2). THE DRIVE-IN 1
    3). Tie between THE MAGIC WAGON, FREEZER BURN, THE NIGHTRUNNERS, FENDER LIZARDS, and ALL THE EARTH, THROWN TO THE SKY

    Yeah I loved the first Drive In! I read it as part of Centipede's omnibus edition.

    Fact is, almost every Lansdale book is a great time. The ONLY one I didn't absolutely love was Bubba and the Cosmic Bloodsuckers. It was just very meh for me which is about as bad as Lansdale can get.

    I have Magic Wagon, Freezer Burn, Leather Maiden, Sunset and Sawdust, Act of Love, Cosmic Interruptions, MIA Hunter, Dead on the Bones, and a whole shitload of Hap and Leonard to get to.

    Just finished Joe Lansdale's "Cold in July". Really liked it but wished it would have been longer. Fun to see characters from some of his previous novels make an appearance. Definitely recommend it to Lansdale fans. Am now beginning Edward Lee's "The Chosen".
