    Yeah, I wish I was enjoying it as much as you did as I was really looking forward to it based on the theme and the dozens and dozens of glowing reviews, but it’s just not hitting the right notes for me. To my mind, there’s a way to do this kind of reflective, literary’ish post-apocalyptic fiction — Peter Heller’s wonderful THE DOG STARS leaps instantly to mind — but this book swings and misses. I’m determined to finish it, but my expectations are tempered, to say the least.

    Just finished the Late Edward Wright's Clea's Moon. Looking forward to the next two installments. Striking out in a different direction, Pierce Brown's Red Rising. I've heard good things!

    If you haven't had a chance, I encourage you to read Stephen King's introduction to Charles Grant's Tales from the Nightside, Arkham House, 1981.

    Wrapping up THE SAVAGE SWORD OF KULL, VOLUME TWO, and just starting THE SPECIAL, by Newman and Steensland. I've hearda lot of great things about it, so I'm pretty excited. Can't go wrong with Newman.

    I'm about 40 pages from finishing up In the Valley of the Sun by Andy Davidson, a modern take on the vampire tale set in west Texas in 1980. Up to this point, very impressed with Davidson's first novel.

    I finished the first half of the Fredric Brown double-novel The Far Cry. I liked what to me seems like a trick ending to The Far Cry. Now I'm reading The Screaming Mimi and I'm also reading the collection Our Lady Of The Shadows by Tony Richards.

    I just read a tiny book The Lost Bird And Other Stories (Illustrated). Published by Dodd, Mead & Company in 1878. These are one page stories with an illustration to accompany each story.

    I just listened to an audio reading of Ray Bradbury's The Emissary. It may be an old BBC recording, but I'm not sure. This reminded me that Bradbury was a great horror writer when he went there. Chilling, absolutely chilling.

    The text.

    The audio. Very well done.
