Oh...let me know what you think Herbie. I've got that one on my TR list!

I just finished City of Thieves by Benioff. Wow! I have to say I absolutely loved it! My second fave book for this year...after Horns of course. Highly recommend it!

I'm reading Till We Have Faces right now by C.S. Lewis. It's a reworking of the Cupid/Psyche myth. Really pretty good so far.

Not exactly a novel, but reading Blockade Billy by Stephen King.

Not a bad novella. Short on details I thought were needed. My opinion...wait for the cheaper retail version that's being released soon.

When will it be out?

I started HITCHHIKER yesterday...a biography of Douglas Adams. Pretty good so far. I love that guy! I also started THE NEW DEAD...finally wrested it away from my daughter. It's really good too. I had to read Joe's story first and I just loved it...very creepy!

Ah you have to read How to Handle the Undead, I had an idea of what I thought was going to happen and he took me in a totally different direction and I loved it!


Now I wonder should I read Horns??? What Ya'll think?

Okay Okay Betsy_Boo & Melissa I'll get to it lol

I hadnt read it as was backlogged with books, then I sent my ARC copy to Vinny and only got my PS Publishing copy there when was in middle of Handling the Undead!

By the way was emailing Pete from PS and apparently later this year maybe next year Joe has another book coming out via them Slavegirls of Gunpowder!
