Just finished Sea of the Patchwork Cats by Carlton Mellick III. An eerie quiet, poetic, post apoc Bizarro book about a man who's all alone after the whole world commits suicide.
Now I'm reading The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. In spite of occasional bad writing, it's shaping up to be pretty cool.

The United States Occupation of Haiti. Just starting this one that covers the US's messy occupation of Haiti from 1915-1934. Probably not our finest moment, but it appears that we learned our history lesson and did it right during the second occupation in 1994. Ashe.

A worthwhile pursuit. Reading The Strain left me feeling like I should do the same.

Await Your Reply, by Dan Chaon A new novel about identity, dead parents, travel, and how circumstances reveal who you are, rather than shaping it. Chaon clearly loves horror and it comes through even in his literary fiction. Im less than third through, but this is shaping up well.

I saw "My Booky Wook" at Barnes & Nobel once.....I was with a friend and I started laughing at the title..cause I switched the B and the W and was like look its "My Wooky Book"...... Sure Wookie is spelled wrong,but It worked 'cause of the title.... :D

Top 10 List

Stephen Kings Regulator's is top grossing of all time. Sorry to bust your balloon but learn something about sales of horror books before you comment. After that his Green Mile series scored big at the book store. check it out yourself.:mad:

Devil in the White City

It's not fiction, but definitely horror. The author, Erik Larson, balances two stories: one about the conception and construction of the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago and the other about an opportunistic serial killer who set up a hotel to lure the fair tourists. While it takes a while for the book to gain its momentum, it really is darkly fascinating. I'm halfway done with it now and the level of dread and tension is spectacular.

I'll let you all know how it pans out in the long run...
