    We're all in this together is a collection of stories by Owen King. The title story is fantastic! Very different writing than his father or brother. I believe his first novel will be released in 2013, I am looking forward to it.

    Current reading goals for this year are:

    Finish King's 11/22/63
    Burke's Kin
    Gifune's Midnight Solitaire
    Clegg's Neverland
    Kelly's Undertaker's Moon

    More will be added of course, but those are the main ones off the top of my head

    I loved Gunpowder. Owen's work is well written, but not that interesting. I did like a short story he wrote about a dentist.

    My goal is to read books all the way to the end and not stop half way through and put it aside for another. This only applies to horror fiction, NEVER nonfiction.

    Oh, where to start...

    "Infinite Jest" (started, didn't finish) and "The Pale King" by David Foster Wallace
    "The Talisman" (re-read) and "Black House" by K & S
    The whole "Dante Valentine" series by Lilith Saintcrow (good so far, but I'll quit if it veers into too much mushy stuff!)
    The first and second DragonLance chronicles (re-read)
    I'd like to pick up halfway through "Wizard and Glass" and finish the rest of the series
    "The Damnation Game" and "Weaveworld" by Clive Barker. I read "Weaveworld" a long long time ago and don't remember anything about it.
    "The Blackstone Chronicles" by John Saul (I always get about halfway through and then get distracted by something else)
    "The Mailman" by Bentley Little (when I finally get around to purchasing it)
    "IT", "The Eyes of the Dragon", and "Salem's Lot", since I finally got new copies...

    Well, I honestly don't remember why I stopped reading it, but since I was in college and was knee deep in my literature survey courses, I assume it was more a matter of time than not connecting with the work, We'll see.

    I have IT and 11/22/63 slated so far. Then ill go back to having a vote on what to read out of my unread king books. So the next vote when I get to it will be full dark no stars vs night shift. Assuming I get that far before doctor sleep which I will be reading immediately.

    I usually try to space out my King books by squeezing 2-3 non Kings in between each King read. Sometimes I push it to 4-5 if I'm lucky.
