I love mysteries, and other painfully obvious declarations.

Stephen King is a personal favorite of mine. His books tend to deny genres, but this (as the publisher indicates) is at its heart a good ole murder mystery tempered by coming-of-age and other...more

I won this book through the GoodReads First-Read program.

I... really didn't like this book, unfortunately.

It was very clear that the book was written with great passion. It was also obvious that the author had put a great deal of work into fleshing o...more

Beautiful, beautiful story.

I tip my hat to Beatrix Potter for managing to perfectly capture the benign and industrious nature of the hedgehog and turn the humble insectivore into a cultural landmark for us all to love and cherish.

I wanted to like this book so much more than I did. The Eastern Coyote is a fascinating creature, and one well worth deeper study. This book, while portending to be about just that, in truth was more about the symbolic nature of the creature than any...more

New short story from Joe Hill? I'm on it.

Wolverton Station is a very short affair, and a terribly funny one. Werewolves in London? What an idea...

The book is silly, and while it doesn't stand up to 20th Century Ghosts in any way, it's still a quite f...more
