    I was thinking of starting with either Heart Shaped Box or Twentieth Century ghost (short story collection). Which would you prefer? or is there something else that you would? I see he has quite a few collaborations but would rather start off with something of his.

    On a side note, after seeing the list here and googling scariest novels, Turn of the Screw kept showing up. I tried it and got about a quarter way through the book and realized I had no idea what was happening. Maybe I'll try again later.

    I commute from Burbank to Phoenix, so...an hour-and-twenty each way. Plus I do a lot of reading...uh...on the overnights.

    Yeah. On the overnights.

    Heart Shaped Box would probably be my recommendation as the first place to start. Although you might also want to read Horns, as the movie is due out next year. I haven't read that yet, but I have no reason not to expect it to be high quality.

    Heart Shaped Box is a better read. Horns is kind of simple and the ending is undercooked. But, like his pops...some of his best work are the short stories.

    Heart Shaped box it is. Just read In The Tall Grass (Kindle single) by Joe Hill and Stephen King. Other than the price, $3.99, really, really liked it.

    Finished OSC's Ruins (Pathfinder Trilogy, Book 2) earlier today. This series (like most of OSC's work) is pretty damned brilliant! If you dig the time-bending or world colonizing aspects of sci-fi, I'd recommend getting started with this series by reading Pathfinder.

    On to some humorous sci-fi! Tom Holt again. He's as brilliant as (if not more-so than) Douglas Adams.

    Man looks like I've got lots of reading to catch up on, hopefully I can get another international trip together soon to mow through some of my backlog.
