    Just finished Lovecraft Unbound and now in the middle of Narrow Houses, an anthology edited by Peter Crowther - all stories are built around superstitions.

    I still couldn't get into Lisey's Story, so now I'm reading both The Envoy (nonfiction) and The Throat by Peter Straub. I've had the limited for many years, but never actually read it. But I fear it's going to be way too long and I'll lose interest. Anyone here read it? Is it any good?

    Just finished "Book of Souls" by Ketchum. I was physically moved, maybe it's the paramedic in me or maybe his life stories just resonate with me. I was almost in tears and that has never happened from a book before.

    I had to quit The Throat, then I went to his ghost story book and couldn't get into that, so now I'm not reading any fiction whatsoever until a pb edition of Ketchum's short stories get here...Exit at Toledo Blvd...

    That's the one I said on here sometime ago I really liked...at least I think I did lol. It reminded me of Swan Song and The Stand. I guess after King wrote the latter, a couple other authors decided they have to write their version as well. I still think Swan Song was one of the best horror/fantasy novels I've ever read and that says a lot considering I have such a hard time getting into fiction.

    Carrion Comfort was a long one, but it kept my interest. His introduction about the process of writing and eventually getting Carrion Comfort published was also interesting to read. It made me want to read more Dan Simmons. I have been warned against Drood, though.

    I have some other Dan Simmons' books but I don't even think I've read any. I have several signed I bought many years ago from some place in Colorado that went out of business and stole alot of people's money they had (including mine). I can't remember their names...Black Rose Books?? Something like that.

    I agree on both accounts.
    Carrion Comfort is awesome - my personal Simmons' favorite.
    Drood...mwah...I think my least favorite so far.

    I'm about to start on Flashback.
    Anyone here read it?
    Worth my time?
    (Duhh......we're talking Simmons here!)

    Oops...I think my mwah is a Dutchism here.....

    I think "mwah" may be Dutch for "meh".

    James Sallis Drive. What a great book. And The return of captain John Emmett, Speller I believe. Really good, well written Mystery.

    Spent most of my day on a plane and was able to finish off Edward Lees Lucifer's Lottery and read the bonus story at the end of Thomas Tessier's Wicked Things, a story called Scramburg USA. Lucifer's Lottery is an enjoyable read, I wasn't sure how I felt about it until the end. I think I found myself comparing this story to his Infernal series which probably was not fair. The end of the story really delivers and left me very satisfied. Scramburg USA is my first Thomas Tessier story and I enjoyed it very much. The main characters are intriguing and the plot twists are unpredictable. Now I am on to Wicked Things.

    Now onto 'Shrine' by James Herbert, sypnosis - A little girl called Alice, a deaf-mute. A vision. A lady in shimmering whote who says she is the immaculate conception. And Alice can suddenly hear and speak. And she can perform miracles. Soon the site of the visitation, beneath the ancient oak tree, has become a shrine, a holy place for thousands of pilgrims. But Alice is no longer the guileless child overwhelmed by her new saintliness. She has become the agent of something corrupt, a vile force that is centuries-old. Innocence and evil have become one

    Now about 2/3 through Wicked Things by Thomas Tessier. As I posted earlier I read the novella included in the book first and really liked it. I have to say each of the stories in this book are worth the price of admission. Very impressed with my first two stories by Mr. Tessier and looking forward to more in the future.
