    Don't read A Gathering of Crows until you read Ghost Walk. It isn't a sequel to Dark Hollow but it overlaps it quite a bit and it introduces the main character of A Gathering of Crows. Check out The Conqueror Worms, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by this one and it has a sequel that Mr. Keene has been gracious enough to put it on his website for free before it gets edited for release.

    Thanks for the heads up on Ghost Walk. I'm sure I'll like Conqueror Worms since I enjoy Lovecraft.

    Wow. Hadn't realized how long this thread was dormant.

    Anyway, recently picked up Mayhem by Sarah Pinbourgh. This is marketed as mystery/crime, but she's written a fair number of horror and dark fantasy titles, so I expect this to be dark. Probably my next read.

    Also recently bought The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft. It's too huge to lug to work, so at some point I'll probably read from my less huge H. P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction and then go over the notes in this one.

    Also recently bought Kim Newman's An English Ghost Story. May be awhile with what else I want to read, but this one sounds good, too.

    And thanks, Randy: I've just bought The Annotated HP Lovecraft to add to my other editions. (Hadn't realised it was out yet.)

    Nor did I realise that the notes were by the same author of the Annotated Sherlock Holmes, which are great. Result: reading +1, pocket -£20. :)

    I saw the Annotated HP Lovecraft in a bookshop the other day - it looks lovely!

    It is. Beautifully arranged, the notations easy to read, illustrations, the foreward looks fascinating; I've glanced at the material discussing influence and now that I'm thinking about it I wish I were home and diving in.

    Glad to contribute to busting your budget, Mark. :)

    There's a nice preview at Amazon if people want to have a look.

    I like the Sherlock Holmes volumes, which seem to follow the same format, so it was an easy sale. :) Thing is, I have been expecting it a while but then forgot about it. It's only three months after its release date, after all! (Doh!)

    And, yes, Randy: you do that too often :) But I can't complain!
