I'm reading a proof of the new Bret Easton Ellis novel, THE SHARDS. I'm loving it
He lists off street names in LA like he does brand names in AMERICAN PSYCHO, and I can't even tell if there's a satirical element this time lol. It also features some of the longest sentences I've ever seen. To be clear I'm not complaining! I'm astounded by the writing and the book is incredibly engaging. Without spoiling much, we follow a young Bret Ellis, private school student in LA, and his friends as a murder/missing persons mystery is unraveled.
I'm also trying to get into the audiobook of Thomas Harris - CARI MORA - but I don't always do well with audiobooks. Harris narrates it, and I like his voice, but I think I need the print version to really get into it.
Got a cheap, though beautiful copy of The Illustrated Walden or, Life in the Woods. There are passages and chapters that are a slough, though there are plenty of sections and chapters that are very rewarding.

Just finished reading an advance copy of Tiffany McDaniel's ON THE SAVAGE SIDE. Ooof, she's such a powerful writer; great stuff! After that one, I needed something lighter, and just got approved on NetGalley for the new Clancy book, RED WINTER, so that's all loaded up on my Kindle. Only a few chapters in right now. Then it'll be back to horror!
Reading FUZZ by Mary Roach, about how we police wildlife that attacks and sometimes kills humans. How do we catch the predator, how do we punish it (euthanize it or relocate it?), how do we determine why it attacked, etc. So far she’s covered wolves, bears, tigers, monkeys, and rats. Pretty fascinating reading.

I’m reading 17 Stories Of Death & Desire, by Andrew Lyall. Just published last month. Some fantastic old school horror, folk horror and weird-ass shit that reminds me a little of some of the stories in the Books Of Blood. Highly recommended.
reggielutz: @johiay: lol it was a bar in Mountaintop PA. Currently the Mountaintop Pub and Eatery. I wasn't around at all when they filmed there but I just heard about it. And I didn't see the episode but it aired last night. My brain just went, "Whaaaat!?!"

reggielutz: Does anyone over here remember a song with the lyric "Alan Moore knows the score"? Not the Pop Will Eat Itself song though, that's not the one that's in my head.
