Just found my way here, but I'm looking forward to taking part in all the fun! And hey, I'm thrilled you've enjoyed some of my books. Now I just need your help getting a million more readers just like you! Or at least a few :)

Cheers!

That deffenitally sounds awesome. Although it's alot unlike anything I've ever really read, it does sound like something I'd be interested in. Are you enjoying it?

I've actually been trying to get my brother to read some of your books. I got him into Richard Laymon awhile back and he loves his stuff now so i'm hoping to do the same with you.

Terrific. Thanks again. Richard was a huge inspiration to me growing up. I'm from Canada and we used to get all his Headline edition books published in Great Britain. I've read pretty much everything he's ever written and my STRANGE MAGIC novel was my attempt at a homage to him. I never did get to meet Richard before he passed away but I'm thrilled to say I'm very good friends with his wife Ann and their daughter Kelly. Great people! When I mentioned to Ann the only book of Richard's I hadn't read was SAVAGE, she mailed me his personal copy from his home library. It's one of my most treasured books!

Anyway, thanks for all the support. I really appreciate it!

Gord

currently reading 24/7 by Jim Brown.
It's OK. I'd prefer if the characters were a little more well-defined and it didn't keep flipping away from the main action 2 check in with the White House!
Next on my list is Four Past Midnight by Stephen King - my favourite author :)

I'm reading KILL WHITEY by Brian Keene, and re-rereading SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES by Ray Bradbury. Both excellent!

I love Laymon's books. I didnt realize Strange Magic was an homage to him. That's probably one of the reasons i liked it so much. What did you think of Savage? I loved that one.

Strange Magic is secretly my favorite book. Maybe not my best but I loved the second half of the novel and the way it comes together in the end. I'm thrilled you liked it. While I was writing it, I'd been reading some reviews that said my writing style reminded them of Richard Laymon's so I tried to play with that idea a bit. Especially the parts about Peeping Tom and Peeler.

And I loved SAVAGE. Quite different than some of Richard's work but great stuff.

Reading Under the Bright Lights by Daniel Woodrel. Described as Country Noir. and also reading Skagboys by Irvine Welsh. It's the prequel to Trainspotting.
