    Haha! You silly Adgy! :P

    Let's play the fantastic four game, so I'll recommend these.

    The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

    The Terror by Dan Simmons

    Books of Blood Volumes 1-3 by Clive Barker

    The Shining by Stephen King

    Revalation Space- Alastair Reynolds

    From his Amazon page: "Alastair Reynolds was born in Wales in 1966. He has a Ph.D. in astronomy. From 1991 until 2007, he lived in The Netherlands, where he was employed by The European Space Agency as an astrophysicist. He is now a full-time writer."

    Turns out he is a pretty good sci-fi writer and this is his first effort. A hard sci-fi space opera book that I enjoyed.

    This is the second book of Paolo Bacigalupi's I've read, the first being Ship Breaker, which was a pretty great novel, actually. The Windup Girl is far more adult in nature (sexual situations) than SB was, but is a thoroughly enjoyable read so far. Based in the same post-apocalyptic/dystopian world as SB.

    His writing style is brilliant. Try this one or Ship Breaker. You won't be sorry!

    This looks cool! Except for the endorsement of Peter F. Hamilton, that is. His stuff is absolute dreck. Don't believe me? Read his book, The Reality Dysfunction, the first of three in the abysmal Night's Dawn trilogy.

    Interstellar zombies??? REALLY?? Bugger off!!

    Liked it as a teen. Tried to re-read it recently and simply fell asleep. Good lord, boring.

    Finally getting around to reading The God Delusion. So far, it's awesome.
