I prefer the Kryptic Koontz titles like "One Door Away From Heaven", "By The Light of the Moon", "The Darkest Evening of the Year" etc. Also I feel the one word titles are very powerful like "Shattered", "Relentless" and "Velocity".

Jim i had to go for "one door away from Heaven" as i find this a very intrueging title which drew me into it before even opening the book if you know what i mean. although a close favourite on this list it is not my favourite. as you all prb know by now from this list it has to be for story FTCOHE, have to say "by the light of the moon" drew me in with just the title as well though.

Jim and yes i know what you mean with the one word titles like hmmmm i dont see it on the list but it was very very good and the story fitted the title just perfect and that book was simply called " Intensity " if you havent read it i highly recomend it, my heart was racing, my bloody pumping my muscles tightening haha.

Did you know I have "By The Light of the Moon" tattooed on my Right arm and "One Door Away From Heaven" tattooed on my Left arm? I like the mystery they provoke :-)

Oh I've read it - twice. Someone can Intensity to the list if they want. I started the poll with 15 titles and decided we'd see where it goes from there.

There are also some good two-word titles like "Cold Fire", "False Memory", "Life Expectancy", "Strange Highways", "Dragon Tears", etc.

Jim really feeling the connection with "cold fire" , "strange highways" was hmmm strange for me as i had never read a book of short stories before it and wasnt expecting it so i was setting myself up for a long read and was wee bit down hearted when it finished early. thats just me though, ohhhh dragon tears wow that brings back memories, the finaly of dragon tears was just amazing, as was the story, he really got right into the dogs mind, and wrote it really brilliantly. dont think i read "false memory" but if you say its good then we seem to have the same tastes so it is def' on to read list.


message 8: by Jim (new)

Jim if i had to pick a title out of those 5 you mentioned would have to be "dragon tears" followed closely by "cold fire", just going on pure creative and poetic titles.

Okay - someone added From the Corner of His Eye again, which was already on the poll - that duplicate entry is being deleted so must make sure the title you want is not already on the poll before writing one in. Thanks :-)

Christopher Jones I like the Door to December. To me, it's better because it provokes a mystery on a specific subject. What is the Door to December? It was a blast reading to find out.
Titles like "By the Light of the Moon" and "One Door Away From Heaven" seem like titles that are picked just to be title dropped by the characters in a dialogue or more likely by the author in a monologue.

Thanks Christopher - good point. However, Me, Myself and I really like the titles that become lines in the story :-) And actually I think "One Door Away From Heaven" is pretty mysterious as "The Door to December". For one thing they are both doors One Door is the The Door to December and the other Door is One Door Away From Heaven. What will you find behind the door that is One Door Away From Heaven? It was a blast reading to find out! :-)

Josh Barnett I chose Phantoms because by the title alone, it make think about ghosts and it would in the end, make me want to read it for the supernatural element of what the title suggests.
