After reading 11/22/63 Stephen King in the afterward that in his opinion, Time and again by Jack Finney is the greatest time travel book ever written. I figured I'd give it a shot considering how much I loved Kings book. I have gotten about 125 pages in (about a fourth of the way through) and have stopped reading it. Nothing really grabbed me and the story didn't seem to be building to much of anything. Oh well. Back to Joe Hill

Finished the last book in Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth series last night. A very sad, sweet ending to a fantastic comic. I was really happy with the way Lemire handled the origin of the "plague" that killed off most of mankind and also gave birth to the hybrids. The only way it could have been done properly, I think. Sad to see this one go.

I just finished this, and it was amazing! The most fun I've had reading a book in a long time. A crazy, f-ed up, roller coaster that is funny, violent, gory, crude, intelligent, and unpredictable. Just read it. Seriously.

Did you read John Dies at the End also? I haven't started This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It yet, and I'm curious how they compare.

I would have to say that I am a little disappointed in this book. It's a collection of short stories, I'm not sure of the time line but I believe this was Joe Hills first release, preceding his first novel. The reason I say I was a little disappointed was that some of the stories in this collection in my opinion don't really fit the genre. There is even one story titled Dead-wood that is only about 2 pages long that has a beginning, an ending but seems to be missing the middle. I checked Amazon and it said the story was 15 pages long but for whatever reason my book was as I said and I have talked to other folks who had the same issue. There were some good "supernatural" tales but in my opinion the book was "saved" by three particular stories that show the talent that Joe has. Pop Fiction, The Cape and Voluntary Committal are PHENOMENAL stories and worth the price of admission.
