Feel free to suggest books here that you think the group should read.

The Postman by David Brin is a good one.

I watched the film after the fact with Kevin Costner, probably had the best Tom Petty cameo ever.

Wow that sounds like a good book! I'll add that to our books to read next month.

Benjamin Card (benjamincard) | 1 comments Since Richard Matheson is my all time favorite writer, I'll suggest a few of his:

I Am Legend
What Dreams May Come
He'll House
Somewhere In Time
A Stir Of Echoes
Come Fygures, Come Shadowes (haven't read this one yet but I'm dying to! It's supposed to be his magnum opus)

Also, by Stephen King:

Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

And by Shirley Jackson:

The Haunting of Hill House

By Ray Bradbury:

Fahrenheit 451
The Martian Chronicles (haven't read it yet but I'm going to soon)
Something Wicked This Way Comes

I read Fahrenheit 451 a long time ago and it was pretty good! I've seen the movie of I am Legend, is the book better?

The Ruins looks interesting, I tried reading The Passage and it starts off so slow that I gave up. But if y'all want to read it I can add it to next months books. I was also thinking of adding John Corwin's Sweet Blood of Mine. He's a lesser known author and his book is written from a guys perspective not a woman's, and it's probably the funniest paranormal book I've ever read.

Make sure and vote on the poll I set up to decide which book we should read for April.

John | 4 comments I think this group would very much enjoy Monster Hunter International Monster Hunter International (MHI, #1) by Larry Correia . It's a series about a bunch of libertarian monster hunting contractors and includes a great take on modern day orcs, elves, gnomes & dragons, as well as more traditional but still awesome werewolves and vampires.

I blame it on Twilight. In real life, vampires only sparkle when they're on fire.
