I hope me saying this won't keep you from reading those Simmons books, it's just my opinion and I can't expect anyone to agree with me.
    Won't stop me mate, Carrion Comfort might even be my next read.

    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.

    So far Keene has been something of a disappointment for me though to be fair I haven't read any of his zombie stuff yet and that seems to be where he draws the most praise. I might give him one more try, where's the best place to start?

    Try The Conqueror Worms if you haven't already, very Cthulhu like.

    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.

    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.
