DREAMING THE BEATLES-Rob Sheffield. Good read that goes in different directions instead of the usual bio of the seminal Musical group.

Fiction-HUNTED PAST REASON by Richard Matheson. Like pretty much RM wrote and this hybrid of DELIVERANCE and "The Most Dangerous Game" is pretty taut throughout. Only problem is, our protagonist is SUCH a Doily and the Antagonist is SUCH an asshole.


Non-fiction- HORROR by Darryl Jones. Pretty good history of said subject in book/film and it's obvious He has great affection and knowledge of the subject. Alas, he over analyzes some of the stuff and seems to find Sex in lots of places, including Gang Rape in DRACULA (Lucy's Staking), Gay relations in Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Hyde entering through the "Back Door" and romantic yearnings for Monster and Creator in FRANKENSTEIN!

Started my Halloween reading with this little item:

TheGreatGodPan.jpeg

Stories collected are:

"The Great God Pan" Very creepy, very Victorian, very cool.
"The White People" Big payload, no payoff, tedious beyond endurance. Had to struggle to finish it.
"The Inmost Light" About halfway through, extremely good. Ranks with the title story.
"The Recluse Of Bayswater" Yet to be read but hope is high.

DOCTOR SLEEP, sequel to The Shining

Iím about halfway through it and itís amazing. Anyone reading it or have read it and want to start a discussion thread, LETíS GO

Iím ashamed to admit Iíve only ever seen The Shining movie and never read the book. The movie was fantastic and such a classic but I imagine they had to completely butcher the book (like always) for cinematic interpretation. Iím headed down to the half-price bookstore as soon as Iím done with this and picking up a copy of The Shining...

If the sequel makes sense of the furry blowjob or the picture at the ending let me know. I'm still kept awake at night by those scenes and how little sense they make...

I will definitely let you know, lol...I imagine those characters had much MUCH bigger roles in the book...lots of stuff I remember from The Shining film is in Doctor Sleep and thereís tons of references in Doctor Sleep to the goings-on of The Shining book (damn spoilers).

I think Iím going to livestream read The Shining on my Twitch account as a lead-up to Halloween...must make thread, lol
