Desperation by Stephen King. Not sure how good it is but it looked decent so I bought it.

Re: What are you reading?

Just got the The Walking Dead comics by Robert Kirkman and am trying to ketch up on them. So far they are just amazing.Really well written stuff.

"Ghoul" is set back in the 80's, where three young kids are out on summer vacation having fun and what not.  Their fun soon stops when a ghoul terrorizes them and the town in the hopes of finding human bodies to eat.

Great book and I highly recommend it to all.  Especially for those who grew up in the 80's, spending your free time reading comic books and watching "Phantasm".

I was gonna get this today, but then I settled on one of Keene's other books, "The Conquerer Worm" <---which dives into more of a Sci-Fi realm....but with plenty of scares.   Ghoul's next, and idea when a new novel is coming out?

Re: What are you reading?

In August, Brian has a new one coming out called "Dead Sea" another zombie book.  Love his stuff and Ghoul was great.  I'm looking for something to read now.

The Keep is a great read too:)

Re: What are you reading?

Highly recommended non-fiction serial killer read: "The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson. 

Book summary:
The Devil in the White City tells the story of the World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893 to commemorate Christopher Columbus's discovery of America. The Devil in the White City intertwines the true tale of two men: Daniel Burnham and H. H. Holmes. Burnham, the chief architect and mastermind of the Exposition (also known as the White City) inadvertently created a playground for Holmes, one of America's first serial killers.

I just recently discovered who H.H. Holmes was, and he is one of the most interesting serial killers I have ever researched.  The crazy thing is this all happened right here in my surrounding areas here in Chicago.  And the things he did were unbelievable for his time period.

I reading The Town by Bentley Little now. I'm only on chapter 4.

Re: What are you reading?

Christine by Stephen King. I watched the movie back in the 80s, but have never read the book. So far, it's much better than the movie (although the movie wasn't horrible). I am about half way through it.

Yeah I got that book by F. Paul Wilson. I just wanna find the movie on dvd someday.

Helter Skelter is still my fave true crime novel by Vincent Bugliosi.

And I would say that my all time fave book to read is probably The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice.
