    That's the one to have. The CD novel was expanded from the shorter novella that Pulphouse Pub. put out way back in the day. There were a few spots where it felt perhaps just a bit more padded for length than it needed to be -- there is something to be said about keeping the narrative lean and mean, short and sharp -- but I still thought it was the better, richer experience of the two.

    Became a little busy and took a bit to finish this one up. I thought it was great with only a small slow up for me at the final finale.

    Sometimes I feel like SK has lost it but then I get sucked right back into wanting to be a constant reader. I pretty much hated Sleeping Beauties, and frankly put off by it, but this book felt like and read like classic King.

    I wasn't really that interested in this book as it all sounded like covered territory but he made it a distinct story that did not feel like a retread at all.

    Come to think of it I own a copy of the CD edition of Midnight Mass. . . somewhere.

    Just finished James A. Moore’s “Blood Red/Black Stone Bay” trilogy. Haven’t read a ton by this author, but, really liked this set of books. Even though they’ve been done a ton, I’m a sucker for a good vampire story and this series fits the bill. Lots of cool characters with really good dialogue. Also love the setting of Black Stone Bay. My only quibble with this series is that the 2nd book felt much weaker than the first and third books; however, I often find that to be the case when I read a trilogy and don’t hold it against the series as a whole. Also room for another book in this series should Moore’s health allow it to be written. Am hoping that will be the case as I would love the see another “Blood Red” book show up in the Earthling Halloween series. Can’t wait to see what Earthling has on tap for next Halloween! Will probably read the Suntup limited of "Horns" next as I haven't yet gotten around to reading the copy I picked up and it has been ages since I first read horns.

    Glad to hear this! I'm trying to work the trilogy in my schedule. Unfortunately I'm wasting some of my reading time watching the 3rd season of Into the Badlands. I love that show, but it has gotten hokey.

    I'm with you there. Loved the premise, but, I had to give up Into the Badlands after season 2. I also thought it had gotten a bit hokey and also couldn't really find a character/actor that I was attached to/liked in the series. For the most part, Felt like this series was very miscast.

    By chance, has anyone read Erin Morgenstern's new one yet, "The Starless Sea"? Would love to hear your thoughts. I remember enjoying "The Night Circus" when it was released years ago. Description for the new one sounds almost Gaimenesque. It got the Kirkus starred review; so, I'm assuming it must be good and will probably pick it up at some point.

    So did I. It was a suspenseful, wild ride! It is wonderful that McCammon still has incredible stories in him at this point in his career.

    The only other McCammon I have read is Boy's Life and to be honest that one fell flat for me. I have to try something else soon.

    Just wrapping up a re-read of Joe Hill's "Horns". First time re re-reading this book since its publication. Am still really enjoying the story all of these years later; however, I forgot how much the character Lee pisses me off. Haven't read a character I dislike this much in a while. Poor Ig.

    Rebel in Brother had that effect on me.

    I did not have that response to Lee. I was actually sympathetic to her efforts to protect Ig even when I disagreed with her methods. I have just started re-reading 20th Century Ghosts for the first time since it was first released.

    My favorite Joe Hill publications are Locke & Key and Heart Shaped Box. After reading Full Throttle a few of the stories have stayed with me. This got me thinking about his earlier short stories. I then realized I had only read 20th Century Ghosts once and off I go. Enjoyed the first story mentioning Cemetery Dance early on.

    I looked at Locke & Key but it didn't grab me. Here is my list:

    1. 20th Century Ghosts
    2. Heart Shaped Box
    3. Horns
    4. NOS4R2
    5. Couldn't finish The Fireman and hadn't yet read Full Throttle
