Nice!

We've been talking a bit about doing classic reprints and I've suggested that we do one of those stories. The Mask is my favorite.

The Reaper of Reputations is a favorite of mine, The Mask is also a good read.

The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers

I'm currently reading that too. I wonder if you're reading it for the reason I'm reading it.

Also reading Alison Littlewood's debut novel 'A Cold Season' which looks like it's headed for the bestseller lists in the UK.

Just about to start the "Theatre of Curious Acts", by our own Cate Gardner.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Theatre-of-Curious-Acts-ebook/dp/B006MPRYTC/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_1

Will need to hold tight if previous work "Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits" is anything to go by.

Thanks, Steven. A seatbelt may be required. Wink

Just started Fevre Dream, by George R.R. Martin.

I can't get into it at all! Nothing wrong with the story, I just seem to read two pages and have to put it down again for whatever reason. Really hope it's worth the slog, I love Song of Ice and Fire so I know he's a good storyteller.

I loved Frevre Dream. Then I lent it out and it never came back. Sad

I'm currently starting in on Margaret's Ark - Dan Keohane

Awesome, I'll keep with it. I might get some time to read it next week on buses etc. I think I blitzed through the entire Song of Ice and Fire series from in a few months while riding buses and on workbreaks.

I lent out Lolita and it went to India, so I sympathise!

Reading Barb Wire Hearts right now. I'd like to visit Cate's head someday. What a bizarre place it must be. Laughing

That's a good thing. =)

I'm also finishing up Koontz's Dead and Alive. Really enjoying the Frankenstein series so far. I read a lot of bad reviews on all but the first, but I don't know, they're quite enjoyable.

I just finished Joe Hill's "Horns"...not a bad read but a bit meh.

Currently reading "Crooked Tree" by Robert C. Wilson, and "Pressure" by Jeff Strand.

The middle was so tedious. All that back story made the thing draaaaaaaaaag. Horns was a fantastic novella stretched into a novel.

^^ my thoughts, as well.

It would have made a cool bizarro novella.

But all that flashback and the shit about the treehouse tarnished it, IMO.

Eek, Ken! As long as you don't visit my head with a chainsaw in hand.

I couldn't finish Horns. I thought the beginning was fantastic and then he lost me. To appease my guilt at not liking the book, I'll say I absolutely loved his novella 'Gunpowder' which was published by PS Publishing.

I loved "Heart Shaped Box" and "20th Century Ghosts" has some absolutely killer tales in it. I shall have to track down "Gunpowder."

Yeah, I think Gunpowder is out of our budget. Or maybe I'm thinking of something else.

But Cate, Horns is great in the beginning and after all the flashback stuff. There was simply too much back story.

Heart Shaped Box had me from beginning to end but Horns started dragging in the middle. Loved 20th Century Ghosts and his father's Full Dark, No Stars. Perfectly creepy.

It looks like Gunpowder costs a pretty fortune on the black market, that is ebay. Hopefully he'll re-release it at some point. Def

Expect the police around in the morning in their heaviest boots if you've been searching for gunpowder on ebay... Laughing

Now reading Who Named the Knife by Linda Spalding. It's an intriguing true crime, but so far the book itself feels a little narcissistic.
