Velocity by Dean Koontz. I can NOT get into it, not at all. It's quite similar to "The Good Guy" but without an engaging protagonist. But then, Koontz writes like the wind. There's bound to be similarities somewhere.

I enjoy Koontz. I stumbled on him after I took a King hiatus because he was getting too dark and just plain weird for me. Koontz includes the paranormal (love it), usually throws in a love interest (love it) and there's a happy ending.

I haven't enjoyed his stuff quite as much lately, but I'm not sure if that's because my tastes have changed, or I'm seeing too many similarities. I love Tick Tock and The Good Guy, though.

T.E.D. Klein should be on everyone's reading list. The Ceremonies is still one of my favorite books. Too bad the guy didn't produce more.

I've been reading the 999 anthology (which happens to have a "new" T.E.D. Klein story in it -- which I was disappointed with because it felt unfinished, like it was more of a sketch than a story).

While in Maine, I read four books, or three books and four stories.

Relentless, by Dean Koontz

A great read, but the ending was stupid. He just couldn't settle for a simple ending involving a small group of people—which was 99% of the story—and had to turn it into this huge thing in like the last five pages. Despite that, it was one of his best books in recent years. Vrey engaging and fast-paced, and quite funny throughout.

Cover, by Jack Ketchum

Got this free in the NECON goodie bag. My first Ketchum story. I liked it. I think it spent too much time on character development and too little on the meat of the story, but it was an easy read, entertaining. Much more philosophical than I expected, too. Ketchum hates commas.

Old Flames, by Jack Ketchum

Got this for a few bucks in a sellers' room. It's a short novel, actually probably a novella since it includes a novella as a bonus and I'm pretty sure Flame Finders is shorter. Either way, this one was another solid read if a bit predictable. Worth a few hours' time, though. Interesting concept, too. Again, much more philosophical than I had expected.

Right To Life, by Jack Ketchum

This was the bonus novella. With the title in mind, it sets itself up to be a pro-life rant. Thankfully this isn't the case, though I think that message might still be there, just much more subtle and appropriate. This one is a vrey torturous, almost hard to read at times, but it's a captivating tale.

My one complaint is that it begins with two people, sets up a relationship, but then focuses on just one character for about 90% of the story. Not that the other character was integral to the story, it simply would have been better had some chapters been given to this character, showing his struggle and such. I think it could have added a welcomed softer, emotional side to the darker stuff—and it's pretty rough, like I mentioned—it mainly focuses on. Good stuff, though. I'm a fan now.

Currently I'm reading Solomon's Grave, by Daniel G. Keohane. I met him at NECON. Local writer, extremely cool dude. I'm only about 50 pages deep right now, but the writing so far is fantastic. I've read a lot of small press authors and his prose is of the professional character for sure. Hopefully the story is just as good.

Which is exactly what I said to myself when I finished it. Sad

I've been reading the 999 anthology (which happens to have a "new" T.E.D. Klein story in it -- which I was disappointed with because it felt unfinished, like it was more of a sketch than a story).

Again, I'm glad I was not the only one to think that that story was not up to snuff for Klein. I bought it just for his story as well, and while it was good, I was underwhelmed.

"American Gods" by Neil Gaiman. Very interesting story and obviously well researched...though his prose is a bit, um, stifled at times.

Still, enjoying it so far.
