    Glad to see I am not the only who places NOS4A2 low.

    My full List:
    1. Locke & Key
    2. Heart Shaped Box
    3. Strange Weather
    4. Full Throttle
    5. Horns
    6. The Fireman
    7. NOS4A2

    I have read each thing except 20th Century Ghosts at least twice. On the second read I liked NOS4A2 more but it is still his weakest story for me.

    Love how diverse our opinions are. Kind of fun seeing the lists.

    7. Haven't read Gunpowder (haven't found a fairly priced copy on the secondary market yet), Won't read Locke and Key as I can't do a comic series (premise does sound really cool), Won't read Full Throttle until I get my SubPress limited that I have preordered.

    Understandable not being into comics but you're missing out on a great story IMO. Check the HC's out from your local library and you wouldn't have to purchase them. Not sure if they would have Gunpowder.

    That's a good idea! Never thought to see if the library might have issues of Locke & Key to check out. That would give me a way to try them out without purchasing. I do enjoy comics; however, I just don't want to go down that collecting rabbit hole considering what I spend on traditional books. The non-stop variants issued by comic companies these days also really bothers me. Seems like a money grab and a real hassle for collectors to track them all down. Just my opinion.

    As a comic book collector, it's a real PITA with all the variants. Because they know I have to have them all! I'm getting away from anything not Hill/Rodriguez related though.

    Do check with your library. I know the local library system here stocks to full set. As Brain861 stated it is a great story and would be in any format!

    I agree. Funny how NOS4A2 is all over the board.

    NOVEMBER ROAD, Lou Berney. Only a few chapters in, so too early to tell, but at the very least Berney knows how to write and has a voice well-matched to the historical noir he’s telling.

    I finished reading Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley, it was great! I've temporarily set aside Snow Upon the Desert by J Russell Warren. I'm now reading Dracula by Bram Stoker, The Tips by Bill Walker--Disappointing and McKain's Dilemma by Chet Williamson--This book is really good so far.

    I am reading Dracula by Bram Stoker and The Tips by Bill Walker--The Tips is uneven, disappointing. I finished The Reaper by Wrath James White. This mini novella was good. It's done as a countdown from Chapter 10 to Chapter 0. In one of the last chapters the author clearly seems to get one character confused with a different character. I guess the author and the editor (whoever proofread The Reaper) both missed this error.

    Am about halfway through James A. Moore's "Slices". First time read for me. So far, I'm really liking it. While I have really enjoyed his novels, I think his short story work is even better!

    AGENTS OF TREACHERY, an espionage anthology edited by Otto Penzler. This is my first espionage reading in some time, though I read quite a bit of the stuff back in the ‘90s and enjoyed it. I’ve been wanting to revisit those good memories, and am hoping this’ll do the trick.
