Am interested in that fave book of yours, as I try to have as wide a variety of subjects and genres reviewed on my new book blog. Keep in mind, it should have some unusual or unique appeal more than just being a big seller, but please let me know what you think are some of the best books out there. And I will definately be using some of them in future posts to my blog. Check my profile website to find the blog address...Thanx for your opinions Mylot users and friends. ;-)

It's always hard for me to pick a favorite ANYTHING (book, movie, animal) so in discussions like these I usually have to talk about a few! But I will restarin myself and just tell you about ONE book I really love! The book is by Dean Koontz, and it's called Watchers. It's about a man who finds a golden retriever, who turns out to be extremely smart so the man names him Einstein. But the man doesn't know the government, a ruthless assasin, and a dangerous, haunted creature are all seeking the dog--all will stop at nothing to reach him. This story has great characters and really really well written action and suspense! If you are a fan of horror's defiantly check this book out!!! :) I've read it once and am keeping it to read it again!

Wow so you really do have a streak for the modern macabe. First talking vampires with ya, then there was the Whole Midnight Meat Train Fiasco but that was written by Clive Barker if i am not mistaken, and now I find out you are in the fan base of Koontz. It seems that most people into modern Horror/SciFi are into one of the big three. King, Barker, or Koontz...I am glad to have your input. If you like Koontz , and I know you pride yourself in the craft of a true writer...then I hope you have read at least a little of the works of H.P. Lovecraft by now. If not, then for shame...he is the greatest author of the whole fantasy/scifi/horror genre ever. Period. As a writer his vocabulary is astounding even by todays standards. My recommendations would be The Dreamquest of the Unknow Kadath The Call of Cthulhu and other tales And maybe... The Shadow Out of Insmouth Spooky and Challenging... ;-)

lol yes! Everything about Midngiht Meat Train (the movie and the convo) was a fiasco! I Love Dean Koontz and Stephen King....well, when it comes to King I either LOVE the story, or hate it (I hate using the word hate!) lol...like I LOVED Rose madder and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon but I hated Gerard's Game... I really enjoy King's series The Dark Tower! I don't think there has been a Dean Koontz book I haven't enjoyed...hmmm...I'm going to have to think about that! SHAME ON ME I have not read any Lovecraft stories (that I know of)! Does he actually have any novels out or does he just do short stories?

That sulking sounds very serious. Don't worry, you'll find it and then you get to enjoy it. TATA.

Madame Bovary. I think it is the most beautifully written piece of fiction ever and I can only read it in translation. It must be amazing in the original French.

I am a big fan of Barker...Books of Blood is an occult classic. Weaveworld is like the Dostoyevsky on hallucinogens. I will have to check out Christopher Moore. Thank you...
