Just finished reading The Ruins by Scott Smith, a mainstream author who has apparently decided to try horror. I'll put it simply: this is an excellent novel. This is a very grim and disturbing book, definitely not for those looking for a little light reading. Quick synopsis: a group of young college students has taken a trip to Cancun. Circumstances lead them to seek out an archaeological dig site in the Yucatan, where things take a sudden and drastic turn for the horrific. I would recommend this book highly, but only for those who enjoy particularly gloomy horror.

Currently reading: A Cavern of Black Ice by J.V. Jones. On deck: the 16th "Best New Horror" collection, edited by Stephen Jones.

I have just re-read for the millionth time The Fog by James Herbert. All in one day. I managed to get it off Ebay, the 1977 version I had as a kid, and it still stands the test of time. Especially the bit in the school gym.

I don't really like Herbert in general, but that book has some scenes that are just superb. For example, the one where the lady tries to drown herself, changes her mind at the last minute, and then gets pushed out to sea by the lemming-like charge of infected folks. Great stuff.
