My bro-in-law is WILD about it. I'm looking forward to it, actually. And I'm looking forward to meeting the guy. Vegas can be pretty crappy sometimes, but it has some awesome people breeze through it. You can always find something to do.

I loved the book, but then I’m an undeadhead. Max also wrote the wonderful Zombie Survival Guide. It is must have reading for the upcoming zombie apocalypse.

Field Of Blood - Eric Wilson

I've just started, so I'm not exactly sure where this is going but it seems that Judas' suicide and his blood leads to Vampires. We'll see where this ends up.

That one sounded interesting. Let me know if it's well written and I'll give it a go.

I'm about 80% through it now Tall T. It's the first in a planned trilogy.

It's not bad at all. It's an interesting twist on the vampire tale. It's not a frantic page-turner, but it's a good read; a 7 or 8 out of 10 so far.

Barrabas is a vampire, so that's something. Very Happy

Okay, I'm nearly done (I know, it's taken me forever to read - I am reading other stuff at the same time!). About twenty pages to go. Problem is, whilst I have enjoyed it, it kinda peaked in the middle and then didn't go anywhere else. Maybe it's the fact that I'm just not that clever and it's gone right over my head.

Anyone else read this? Am I just twp (Welshism for thick as fuck)?

I'm struggling through World War Z. I think that Brooks just isn't my style. Or more accurately, it isn't my style at the moment. I want something a little more fanciful. I just finished Gaiman's Neverwhere and totally dug it.

Andrew, you're reading Ghoul?

Oh, I haven't read Ghoul. I thought that's what you were reading. What book did you just finish?

Oh sorry! Nah, I'll be finishing World War Z tonight. Like I said, it was good, but it was a plain cheese sandwich. Lovely, but after you've eaten half of it, the excitement fades.

Not that I get excited over cheese sandwiches, you understand.

Gonna check out Ghoul.

Great book. rockon

Me, I'm reading Demon Days by Richard Finney & D.L. Snell. My full thoughts on it will appear as a review on Horrorworld.org (a great site, if you’ve never been there GO NOW!) But as a very brief peek: so far I likes it a whole bunch!

Just finished Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk and am moving onot Ketchum's Off Season. I have trouble with Ketchum's stuff though; his characters always feel a little flat to me.

Ketchum doesn't really write in a way that gets under the characters' skin. He's very quick with his words, fast-paced and all that. Considering his subject matter you'd think heavy character development would be required, but I think that would eat away at the pace of his stories, you know. Boulders in a river, basically.

Anyway, I'm currently reading A Princess of Landover, by Terry Brooks, and Dark Demons, by Kurt Newton; specifically the scary dildo story. lmao

That's no dildo! It's just a very special sea cucumber. Like the one this woman below seems to be lusting after.

So I liked K's "very special sea cucumber" story. Actually, I read that story while I was reading Jennifer Pelland's story about the singer who was mourning the sea. Two very different water stories at the same time.

Right now I'm reading through one of my old dream journals, hoping to get a NaNo spark. Man, I've dreamed some horrid stuff, let me tell you.

I almost never dream....I don't et into a deep enough realm of sleep, I suppose.

That is one of my favorite Pelland tales.

I need to get this Kurt book and read the Sea Cucumber story....

I haven't finished it yet, but I didn't realize sea cucumbers were so evil.

I've finished it. Great book!

I need to start something new. I read a page or two of Joe Hill's Heart
Shaped Box and a page or two of The Shining, since I just saw the
movie. I don't know, I just can't seem to get motivated to do anything
at all beyond what I have to do. Life is just kind of beating me down
at the moment.

But I love you! And so does this guy!

You might need to read something fun and whimsical, then.

I read Moore's "The Stupidest Angel" and nearly died laughing. It was my first book of his.
