08/04/2012 "Read: The Other Side 1908, The Screaming Skull 1908"
08/04/2012 "Sand Kings, 1979, George RR Martin. Wickedly amusing and twilight zone-esq. If you are to be a cruel god, make sure the natives don't get free. Window, 1980, Bob Leman. Also twilight zone-esq. All is not what it seems when looking through a dimensional window. The Brood, 1980, Ramsey Campbell. Forgettable. The autopsy, 1980, Michael Shae. A science-fiction take on demonic possession/vampirism."
08/05/2012 "The belonging kind, 1981, William Gibson and John Shirley. A big price to pay to fit in."
08/08/2012 "The Dirty little girl, 1982, Joanna Russ. Odd little tale I'm still trying to figure out."
62.0% "Shades, Lucius Shepard. A ghost story taking measure of the ghost of a dead soldier and the demons within the surviving brother at arms following the Vietnam war."
67.0% "Family by Joyce Carol Oates. A strange and dark read about a family whose parents are replaced generation after generation as the world around crumbles, but the children remain. The story is tinted with gothic and science fiction, and has an ending with disturbing lack of closure."
