And there's a lot on my plate. Let's see what I can get done. There'll be one of the few remaining Elmore Leonard books, the third part of Elena Ferrante's Palmero quartett, the next James Lee Burke Robichaux (I'm up to 13 or 14), a Carl Hiaasen (again, I'm making my way through his oeuvre chronologically - am on about the tenth book), James Herbert's Dune (though I'm still recovering from my last mammouth book, Stephen King's long version of The Stand), the second George Simenon's Maigret, if only to keep my French alive, a Jo Nesbit, a Donald Westlake Dortmunder (I've been missing the guy since finishing the Hunter Richard Stark series) and a few more than I can't think of on top of my head.
Those should keep me busy, though I'll also be busy working on my new book 'Murder in the Comfort Zone'.

Mindfulness by Magnus Stanke (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 20, 2017 10:54AM
Description: a Halloween Horrorweek story... The core of this story is a 'deleted scene', a discarded chapter of my new book (which still isn't finished). I knew I was going to recycle it sometime, and then I got inspired by the Horrorweek Event on GR...

Yep, he's done it again, Stephen King has. He's written a book that neatly falls into two halves. The first half is AMAZING. I'd easily give it top marks, 6 out of 5 if possible. The second half is another story.. 2 out of 5

The Outsider by Stephen King
"Book 1: Looky here at this impossible murder mystery. He did it, but couldn't have done it.

Me: I'M IN. TELL ME MORE. I know you're going to come up with some blindingly clever way this could have happened, right? I'm ready.
