    I just started Torn by Lee Thomas. Only 35 pages in but I am hooked, haven't read a good werewolf story in a long time.

    Didn't James Herbert write "Rats"? If so, I've read that and it wasn't bad.

    I just got Sixkill from the library! That's Robert Parker's final, completed Spenser novel before his death I'll be starting on that one tonight.

    Reading The Smoke, by, Tom Barling, a superb British gangster novel. Also reading Borderlands, a fantastic horror anthology. Some amazing stories in there.

    Yeah he did and like you i enjoyed the book, there are some sequels to it too that i have to read, 'The Lair', 'Domain' and another that i can't remember.

    If anyone hasn't read 'The Fog' they need to, one of my favourite novels ever!!!

    Vacations from Hell is OK, IMO. They put out quite a few books "from Hell" books. I liked Prom Nights from Hell better, which is what made me want to try Vacations from Hell, when I saw it in Half Price Books for $1. .....I'm jmcraven's wife, btw. :-)

    Reading:

    Jeremy Dyson's Never Trust a Rabbit (Dyson is one of the team who write the BBC's The League of Gentlemen)

    This is offset by Terry Lynch's Jack Ripper The Whitechapel Murderer. Try and mix fiction and nonfiction as much as posssible.

    Just finished Far dark fields by Gary Braunbeck, fifth novel of the Cedar Hill cycle of stories. Can't wait for the upcoming final novel but I'm very much willing to wait, I have a feeling the payoff is going to be oh so delicious. Ive had these books in my collection for some time but have been pacing myself so I don't run out.

    Currently reading Shivers IV which has a few real gems in it and I'm about to get sarted on either McCammon's Boy's Life or possibly Hill's Horns. Any suggestion's as to which should go first (keeping in mind they'll both get a turn)?

    McCammon's book may be a nice change up for you since your finishing up Shivers IV. Both books are great at least in my opinion.

    I hope this counts because it's not a novel: Berlin 1961.
    But I'm also still trying to read FDNS by King. It's easier for me to read short stories or novellas since novels take too long and I get bored.

    Boy's Life is my absolute favorite McCammon.
    I haven't read Hill's Horns yet, and I don't think I will. The subject matter doesn't really appeal to me. Most poeple I know really like it, though.

    I couldn't get into Boy's Life but I thought Swan Song was one of the best novels I've ever read. Much better than The Stand, and no, I'm not dissing King again.

    Of course not; but I assume you're talking about the complete and uncut version of The Stand.

    I just started reading Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. After that, I'm deciding between King Blood by Simon Clark or The Five by Robert McCammon...
