A dreamlike little tale with a cool ending. You can polish it off in an afternoon.

Makeup to Breakup by Peter Criss

Clear rating
This one gets an extra star for being an interesting read even if you don't happen to be a KISS fan. Criss' youthful exploits in the streets of mid-century New York are interesting and snap a photo of a time and place that just don't exist no more. T ...more

STEEEEEEEEEEEVE. WHY?

You created your greatest evildoer since Randall Flagg and put her in a story where the terror lies in the very real world of addiction. The supernatural beasties never have a chance. Their part of the story is treated like an af
