November. A time when the last few remaining leaves fall from the trees and are replaced by icicles. Frost on the grass leading to snow. A cold wind to chill your bones that only a fire in the fireplace can thaw. So, as we nestle into our cozy homes and prepare for a long winter, we'd like to honor a writer whose work is notorious for sending an icy shiver down many a reader's spine. On November 10th, it's Jack Ketchum's birthday and we're celebrating by dedicating our November Group Read to him!

So, please post your suggestions for which Jack Ketchum story you'd like to nominate as our Group Read. Nominations will start now and end on October 21st at the stroke of midnight!

Chris (gonetoyourhaed) | 7 comments Off Season Off Season (Dead River, #1) by Jack Ketchum I just realized this book was based in Maine, where I live. Cannibalism in my backyard sounds great!

Anna (doppiocuore) | 35 comments I've already read The Girl Next Door and both The Secret Life of Souls and Off Season sound good.

Christal | 5 comments I've read most of Ketchum's works, and love them all. I nominate Ladies Night and/or The Lost. Two that I haven't read and have been meaning to.

D20 | 173 comments The Lost sounds good. I haven't read this author before either so it should be interesting.

William King | 2 comments The Lost has my vote.

Pre-order hardback, might be a little premature. Plot sounds interesting, but I'd vote for it if a decent priced Kindle version was available. Maybe one for a buddy read later?
