I just finished "The Were-Wolf", by Clemence Housman (1896). The book I was reading it from said "little is known about him (sic)", so I looked her up to get a little background. I found the book on Project Gutenberg and discovered a final paragraph that was not in the version I read. Score!

Currently reading Clive Barker's Books of Blood. I'm about halfway through vol. II. To be honest, it's dragging a little for me. The first few stories were fantastic, but I'm not sure how I feel about the collection overall as of yet (guess that goes without saying since I haven't finished it). Also, just finished reading Creatures: Thirty Years of Monsters edited by John Langan and Paul Tremblay. Some good stuff in there. I went and bought China Mieville's Looking for Jake based purely on his story in the collection. Hope to dig into that soon.

Mercedes wrote: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 actually thought Velocity was one of his better books. Dean Koontz is hit or miss with me and I find him less and less appealing as time goes by.

Doctor Sleep. Halfway through, not in love with it like some others. There are parts I'm definitely enjoying, but the villains here seem cartoonish and not fitting with the other parts of the book. I'll keep the faith though that maybe King can bring it all together.

I've been on a "Sci Fi I Really Should Have Read By Now" kick recently. Just finished Snow Crash and Neuromancer a couple weeks ago. Snow Crash was fun. It flipped between unapologetic cyberpunk (which I enjoyed immensely) and convoluted linguistic/anthropological discussions (which I enjoyed more than I thought I would).Neuromancer was a decent read, but I think the stakes were never really high enough to pull me in.

Since then, I've been burning through the Hitchhiker's Guides, and grinning to myself between classes and on trains and the like.

Finishing up JUstin Evans' "A Good And Happy Child." Then probably "Brew" by Bill Braddock.

Sycamore Row by John Grisham. A Time to Kill is my favorite book by him and just one of my favorite books period, so I was excited for this one. Halfway through it, and yes, I am enjoying it...but it isn't nearly as compelling as A Time to Kill.

Most author would find it hard to top a book like A Time to Kill. It's one of those once-in-a-career classics, you know.

Have you read his Ford County collection? I loved it. Shame he doesn't write more short fiction.

Reading WOOL by Hugh Howey and VODNIK by Bryce Moore.

One is a hardcover I read at night, and the other is on my Kindle. Loving both of them for different reasons right now, but especially blown away by WOOL.

As I read The Croning by Laird Barron, I am pretty sure that it has to be one of the all-out creepiest books I've ever read. Every page just leaves me so unsettled and nervous--yet so strongly tugged right along by its irresistibly lucid narrative that I simply can't stop reading!

After I finish it (likely in a day or two), oh, I don't know...possibly for a complete change in tone, Mykle Hansen's Rampaging Fuckers of Everything On the Crazy Shitting Planet of the Vomit Atmosphere.  headbang

Where Furnaces Burn by Joel Lane. It won the World Fantasy Award in 2013 for best collection, and Joel died unexpectedly a few weeks later. He was only 50.

I'm four stories in and it's great so far. Subtle, quiet horror, like I like.

I just recently bought this collection. I've loved everything I've read so far from Joel Lane and looking forward to digging in.

The Wolves of Midwinter by Rice. Not great, but intriguing and engaging. This one plays more like a ghost story than a werewolf tale.

I'm still "currently" re-reading The Shining. Really, I stopped to finally finish A Dance with Dragons.

Prisoner 489 by Lansdale was a fun and wonderful horror story. Now I'm reading The Silkworm by Rowling.

I just finished Koontz's Odd Hours, and now I'm reading Odd Interlude, the short tie-in novel he released in three parts in 2013. It takes place immediately after the end of Odd Hours. I plan to continue on with the series after.

I'm also beta reading a novel by Robert J. Duperre, and I just got an upcoming novella from Lee Thompson. Maybe a future Shock Totem release. =)

THE ISLAND AT THE END OF THE WORLD by Sam Taylor.

Before this, I read Boris Starling's MESSIAH. At Ken's insistance. Not bad at all but it didn't give me sweats or anything.

Also recently devoured Kealan Patrick Burke's THE PENNSYLVANIA 121 AND OTHERS. Fantfuckingtastic.
I'd compare it to Hill's 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS...it's that good.
