If you like his books this is a solid choice. However, the author explores a lot of the graphic sexual imagery (surprising for a book with so little actual sex) closer to his work 1Q84. If you liked that book more than After Dark, this book will appeal to you. I found it a bit slow and it took two...

This is an excellent work of short story fiction. Although it has a sci-fi bent with Martians and space travel, it is much more philosophically thought provoking than is typical for the sci-fi genre. It is beautifully descriptive in just the right places so that your imagination can run wild to...

It was an eclectic collection of comics all with a strong 90s vibe...a little corny at times, but poignant in the right spot too. Hard to read occasionally as was typical for the time. All in all an easy introduction to a few fan faves and a few lesser known faces of the marvel universe.

A unique take on the Lizzie Borden murders. I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was...Lovecraft. I love Lovecraftian horror and I found it a fascinating choice to mix it with historical events. This book is told from the perspective of a handful of different characters, sometimes characters...

This is a small, sweet little book. It is written by a woman who lives with her husband, in a small town in Alaska. She has grown kids and some Grandkids too. She writes obituaries for the small town weekly newspaper. This book she "talks" about the things she has discovered through...

I have always liked Anne River Siddons books because the twist you expect is not usually the twist that actually occurs. That's the story in this book too. Emily Parmenter lives on an old plantation (in modern times) near Charleston, SC. She lives with her father and two brothers. Her...
