Especially the parts about Peeping Tom and Peeler.

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

I actually think Strange Magic is your best. I thought it was perfect. It's one of my favorite novels

jurassic park (no shocker there XD) i read it at night before i go to bed since that's the most peaceful and relaxing part since i can't during the day because of noise and distractions.

Wow! Thank you very much. I really appreciate hearing that :)

Not to spam you (or anyone else here) but have you read my novelette PEELER yet? It is about the character Peeler in the Strange Magic novel, the man with no skin on his body. I had no idea where that character came from - he just kept popping into my head and into that novel - so I wanted to write a story about him, explaining how he lost his skin. PEELER is that story, and it's a good one. Check it out sometime. I think it's only $1.99 for the ebook and it will be in print shortly as well.

Cheers!

Gord

I just finished reading Death to the Brothers Grimm. If you haven't read it, and you're a fan of the twisted and depraved, then I suggest you check it out. Not many books keep me sitting for one long stretch, but the fairy tales in this book really had me. I could go on, and accidentally give spoilers, but I'd rather everyone experience this for themselves.

Gord, I'll be picking up your new collections soon. Time & Space and Gods & Monsters. Isn't there a third one coming out?

I'm reading...

...not a horror novel, actually.

Bear with me.

I was reading The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz, however, like all of the other Koontz novels I have read, while the prose is always superb, the stories are hit and miss and every ending has been very disappointing (I've read four so far). I didn't finish it because it had become so tedious and a little too sugary for my taste.

I'm currently having a break from horror/supernatural fiction with Robert Harris's Archangel. It's very good so far (I'm on page 120).

Next I will be re-reading King's Everything's Eventual (superb), then The Talisman, which I haven't read yet. For those of you who haven't read Danse Macabre, I highly recommend it. Just finished. A fascinating look at horror fiction and movies.
