Rasputin's Bastards by David Nickle. CZP looks to be putting out some very interesting, edgy books. I have Nickle's Eutopia as one of my next reads.
I'm almost finished reading Dark Hollow. I almost didn't get past the first chapter, but am glad I stuck it out. I was pleasantly surprised to find a reference to Wellman's Silver John.
Dark Hollow is my first Keene book. I'll be reading A Gathering of Crows next and likely follow up with Conqueror Worms.
RZ, Have you read Rhiannon Frater's The First Days? Good zombie book, imho. First one I've seen with female lead characters.
a BIG lot!
bunch of Charles L Grant's work
a few Brian Keene books in there
a few Tim Lebbon
and a few Richard Matheson books.
Ebay was my friend - and i owe thanks to a handful of you who made some recommendations I followed up on.
much appreciated ladies and gents!
Monstrosity by Edward Lee
Summer of Night by Dan Simmons.
Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga.
Cupid in Bondage by Wrath James White
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!
