I've only read one book by him so far, an anthology of stories called 'The Blue World', but years later still remember the creepiness of 'Yellowjacket Summer'. Not recommended for anyone with a fear of insects! This one is part of a group of Bookcrossing bookrings paying tribute to the works of Poe, and I'm looking forward to it!

Unapologetic_Bookaholic | 1986 comments Danielle: I read Swan Song. I am a fanatic of post apocalyptic horror. I did not realize this but I seem to be able to pick the BEST horror. Swan Song won the Bram Stoker literary award for best horror. I also read Brian Keene's The Conqueror Worms and was like Damn this is good. Again, post apocalyptic. Enjoy your challenge!
