Re-reading because it's close to Halloween. Neat to read a book that takes place in Northern Michigan - the main story is on the Old Mission peninsula. The other stories reference areas I'm familiar with. Fairly standard horror, but a pretty good read.

A history of San Francisco from the 1920s through the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the early 80s. It was very interesting and gave many events that I remember context with the benefit of hindsight. I wish he had continued to present day; the ending was a bit abrupt but it was a great read.

An enjoyable collection of connected stories that take place around the Halloween season. The title novella is the highlight; some of the others are a little hokey but overall this is a worthwhile read.
