    A pretty quick read. I would have to say that maybe I was expecting too much from this novella. I had been reading some really good reviews about Brian James Freeman so I figured why not. The story is told in a bit of It style, going after the evil once as a kid and again as an adult. The ending was a bit predicable in one aspect and anti-climactic in another. That being said i will probabbly get his other novella Blue November Storms for a later time.

    Hey, JD, you seen this?


    Bleeding Shadows: Joe R. Lansdale: 9781596065994: Amazon.com: Books

    Bleeding Shadows is Joe R. Lansdale's largest, most varied collection to date. Weighing in at 488 pages and 150,000 words, these stories, poems, and novellas--supplemented by the author's introduction and by an invaluable set of story notes--move effortlessly from horror, adventure, and suspense to literary pastiche.
    Just ordered one for myself.

    Mat Johnson's Pym



    An interesting take on Poe's Arthur Pym story! And lotsa African American satire.

    Ramsey Campbell's Dark Companions



    A short story horror anthology. My first time reading Campbell. I enjoyed it, but most of the stories seemed to end way too similar.

    So I am still in a graphic novel, or for the layperson "comics", phase of reading...



    Y-The Last Man, by Brian K. Vaughan w/Pia Guerra and Jose Marzan Jr. (Vaughan's current book is Saga, which is great, so if you like that check this out.)

    So a plague hits and all the males on earth die except for Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Ampersand. The story deals with Yorick on a quest to find his girlfriend half a world away. You would think that being the last man earth would be pretty sweet: you get to bang all the chicks you want right? But it turns out it really sucks. Society is in shambles and you are a wanted man. Sure there are a lot of chicks who want you to bang em, but then there are radical groups of women who think the plague was cosmic justice and they vow to hunt you down and finish what nature started, there are foreign governments hunting you because they want to repopulate and you are the key and an assortment of other people who either want to do you harm or simply kidnap you.

    It was one of the better reads I have had in a while. You can get the whole series in 10 trades so it won't set you back too much.

    And there have been on again/off again talks of making this a movie, I for one hope it happens

    Just finished this:



    Amazon.com: Behind the Board:My Life with Rock and Roll Legends eBook: Scott Cahill, Galen Senogles, Wil Leacox: Kindle Store

    The true story of a kid from Kansas whose love of music brought him working side by side with rock and roll's biggest names. From John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac & others, Galen Senogles has worked with the biggest names on some of rock and roll's must beloved classic albums. For the first time, he sets the record straight on some of rock and roll's most enduring stories, rumors, and myths.
    This book is rife with typographical and grammatical errors. It also could have used some occasional editing for redundancy. However, technical gripes aside, this book really hit every sweet spot for me and was a fast, smooth, enjoyable read. Actually, that's an understatement. I really loved this and am so glad I saw it, but, like I said, it hit all the sweet spots for me.

    It's a series of interviews, and it's short, but you will get something out of this book if you're entertained by road stories from traveling performers; are a fan of The Beatles, or Fleetwood Mac, or Pink Floyd; have ever looked up the studio musicians or other personnel on a favorite album; are interested in recording techniques; are curious about the music industry; or even if you just like a good yarn from a unique perspective.

    Just curious, LTI, but were you aware that Scott Cahill is LGK's very own Hipcheck?

    I saw the book on the board here somewhere when he posted something about it. That's totally why I bought it, but it's not why I loved it.

    It really was right up my alley. I traveled for over 4 years as a performer. My dad was a musician. First favorite band was The Beatles. Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd? Absolutely, especially after seeing Roger Waters perform The Wall. I'm also a tech geek and a post-production guy. There are certainly many stories in the book that you won't hear anywhere else.
