    Finally getting around to reading "Frozen Hell" (published by DRP). Sadly, I had never had the chance/awareness to read Campbell's novella "Who Goes There?". Because of that, my only background with this story was via the movie: John Carpenter's The Thing. "Frozen Hell" was a little dry at first with all of the snow-equipment jargon and measurements; however, once you get to the discovery of the alien, it's high-octane from that point on. Would recommend.

    Great to hear that it's a solid read...the newly discovered, expanded version of Campbell's novella has been on my radar since it was announced, and I keep meaning to grab a copy.

    I would definitely grab it if you find it at a fair price. The story is good and the production values are good. I really like that even the trade edition had art/sketches throughout the story. Not sure how much cost it adds to the production of books, but I really wish more publishers would go back to including art in their titles. Even seems like some of the limited editions publishers have started cutting back on interior art lately, unless it's for a huge author, which is a bummer.

    Finished reading Circus Boy Starring Corky.
    I started Persona by Genevieve Valentine. I've temporarily set aside Persona. I've not yet gone back to reading Dracula by Bram Stoker.
    I'm currently reading and really enjoying Wives and Lovers by Margaret Millar. I purchased a box of six vintage hardbacks last fall and Wives and Lovers is the first one I'm reading.

    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.
