    And I got past the first book in the Sandman Slim series, Book 2 (Kill The Dead) was yonks better. And #3 Aloha From Hell is even better. these come in nice paperback sized hardcovers which are a real treat. Not too heavy to hold, jayzus the last King book I read I didn't have the 'couldn't put it down' option. More like 'had to put it down'...I know...Kindle...yeah yeah. I am a physical copy guy, I still buy cds. But yeah Richard Kadrey has created a bunch of cool characters and mixed in sex, drugs, rock and roll and heavy theological fantasy. As a lapsed Catholic I am a fiend for fallen angels. If you like Dresden/the Nightside series, this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    I've read a TON of these kind of books and almost listed this one when I read it last fall but I actually liked "Kill the Dead" quite a bit more.

    I've also been slowly making my way through Dresden and Green in order for years simply because I enjoy the central characters so much. Green is more hit and miss as the series go on but I still love both.

    If you are ever looking for or wondering about a similar author, let me know. There are even some independent authors on Amazon that are really good.

    It's Friday and you're wondering, "What the hell am I gonna do this weekend?" Well, you could go see Evil Dead again... or you can download the original splatterpunk novel from John Skipp and Craig Spector to read... for FREE! Here's the hitch... the offer ends today so you'd better hurry!

    All you have to do to get it is click here to download. That's it. Now go and get it! You'll be thanking us later.

    Just finished Enders Game. Very much enjoyed it but I knew there had to be a bugger connection at the end with the "tele-communication" I really look forward to the movie and Harrison Ford as Graff.

    Can't tell how I missed it back then. I used to read two or three sci-if novels a week back then ...

    So a avid reader and eccentric friend recommended this series to me. Sounds good and now that you recommended I may have to buy from iBooks (I actually have the sample in my iBooks library) ...

    The friend also recommended other interesting titles: "I am NOT a Serial Killer" by Dan Wells and "Al's All Fright Diner" by A. lee Martinez and for pure inane fun "Lamb" by Christpher Moore who is quite irreverent.

    While looking for something to read, my eleven year old caoxed me into starting the Lemony Snicket"s series, A Series of Unfortunate Events. I just finished the second one, they are definitely quick reads. I find myself liking the books more then I should. I guess they are geared towards kids but I find they are pretty funny. I don't think I can go thirteen straight books without something else so I am going to start Life of Pi. Although this isn't really my type of book (love horror) my 15 year old just read it and recommended it to me so I will start that tonight.
