Read "Fighting Nerves," the Kid Allison version. Formulaic, yes, but lots of fun to read.

Reread "The Wildcat and the Star." Still not as strong as the Costigan series, this had a descriptive battle - and a bit of a contrived mistaken identity subplot.

Finished part one of this Omnibus, "Elric of Melnibone." It was okay.

Read "College Socks," a rewrite of the Steve Costigan story, "A Student of Sockology." I really enjoy how REH writes his boxing matches.

Reread "Kid Galadhad." It's been a while since I've read this one. The fight was fun to read.

Read "The Man with the Mystery Mitts," the first Kid Allison story. As the intro said, a bit contrived, but it was still enjoyable.

I like that the chapters are short. This book is much better than the crap by Moorcock I read earlier this year. I've read this before, but it was refreshing to find it still readable.

Vincent Darlage is finished with Dracula's Guest and Other Victorian Vampire Stories
Finished the last three tales in the volume. "Count Magnus" by M. R. James was a pretty good story, with much to say for it. "Aylmer Vance and the Vampire" was weaker, but had an interesting history behind the vampire that I liked, and a connection to a castle, not unlike a haunting, and the eponymous "Dracula's Guest" by Bram Stoker.

The quest is over, now the winding down of things. This was a really good book.

Read "Luella Miller" by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, an interesting story, strangely real-sounding.

Read three stories tonight. The first was "And the Creature Came in," by Augustus Hare, and it was fantastic. It took place at Croglin Grange. The second was The Tomb of Sarah, by F. G. Loring, which may be one of the finest Vampire stories I've ever read. The final one was "The Vampire Maid," which was also quite good.

Really enjoying this novel. Funny how Sam has no idea what is going on - but he's figuring it out.

Boy, things happen fast in a Hammett novel. Finished chapter 2, and 40% of the introduced characters from chapter 1 are dead.

Reread Mary Elizabeth Braddon's "Good Lady Ducayne," a fantastic tale of medical vampirism.
