I have his new one about a haunted house full of spooky antique dolls but am saving that for Christmas reading. He's strictly spook where as S J Bolton is creepy-thriller-crime as you say!

I've not read Joe Hill's new one. I liked his others though and writes very much like his Dad. Recently finished Doctor Sleep by King and loved that and was prepared to be disappointed but was pleasantly surprised.
I've read all of King except for the last two. I couldn't get excited about them, but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, too.

Thanks for the recommendations, Fata. Happy reading!

I'll even tell you I read Redbook if we are talking anal.

I'm reading Evidence and Inquiry by Susan Haack and also The Eleventh Commandment by Jeffrey Archer.

I'm in the process of acquiring digital versions of all of my old books and moving the hard copies to storage.

It was very good. Odd in an interesting way.

I'm working my way through Julian Barnes early stuff.

Read an odd little debut by Donal Ryan called The Spinning Heart, set in Ireland, you might like. And my next one is a famine tale called The Naming of Eliza Quinn. Had excellent reviews and looks suitably bleak.

Blood Lance, by Jeri Westerson.

It's not very good and doesn't get the Savage Seal of Approval.


I just finished the "Zones of Thought" series by Vernor Vinge and I can't recommend them highly enough. Excellent books.

Fitzroy Maclean: Eastern Approaches - a wandering diplomat breaking the rules exploring Communist USSR before WW2; followed by raids in the Western Desert with the original SAS; and fighting Nazis in Yugoslavia with Tito.

Thomas Love Peacock: Headlong Hall - an early 19th Century satirical novel making fun of one-trick ponies who know everything about their subject and nothing at all about life.

Only another 7000 pages to go, then! Best fantasy series I've read in decades.

I'm presently on book two of Daniel Abraham's Long Price quartet.

At the urging of my stepdaughter - who has never read them; she was a bit young when they first came out - we are reading the Harry Potter series together. I bought the first one at a thrift store today.

God help me.

You know, 7000 doesn't seem like enough. This is quite good. I'd like to write half as well.

After you're done with Erikson's main sequence stuff you can have a crack at Ian Cameron Esslemont's stuff set in the same world. Not as good but entertaining all the same.
