About meReader & Collector.
Long term goal is to collect all of Richard Laymon's books in some form or another, partially because it is a challenge, partially because collecting all of Stephen King's works in their various forms is near impossible and would cost a bloody fortune.
Short term goal is to find a few other authors that write good horror or suspense and have a catalogue of books to pick from - new authors are always good, but I am impatient regarding books and when I actually find an author I like, I do not want to wait years to read another book by them.

About my libraryI love horror and thrillers. As a child I read Stephen King and Dean Koontz with a little Nancy Drew to mix it up. I also love funny, subversive, ironic fiction. I generally don't care for anything that Oprah has picked, too dry, too literary. That's not to say I like total junk, I have some standards, (won't read Danielle Steele, John Grisham, James Patterson (used to be good but is no longer), Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton). I like zombies, serial killers, the end of the world, and characters who kick ass (Lee Child's Jack Reacher is a god, Repairman Jack, Rachel Morgan and Anita Blake are pretty cool too).

Thank you so much for the great picks - I can't wait to start reading them! I love how LT matches us up with folks with similar libraries. This year they really outdid themselves! And how cool is it to get matched with another Cemetery Dance fan? Happy Holidays!

Thanks again!
Alice
The book arrived! It got here yesterday, but I was out of town. I can't wait to get started on it tonight. Thank you! You picked a perfect book.

Hey Tammy,

Given you read my spiritual suspense thriller THE LAST DAY, I wanted to let you know that my new book THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL was released last week by MacMillan.

Publishers Weekly says: "Kleier's undeniably gripping second spiritual thriller is bound to provoke just as many arguments as his controversial first novel, THE LAST DAY. THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL is the first of a trilogy, and Kleier's many fans will only hope they won't have to wait long for the next installment."

If you enjoyed LAST DAY, I think you'll find KNOWLEDGE an even more engaging read.

Thanks, and best wishes,

Glenn Kleier

Hi Tammy,

As a friend of mine here, will you also do me the honor of joining the Facebook page for my new novel, THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL (MacMillan, July 2011)? The page will feature upcoming events that I think you’ll find interesting.

To kick things off we'll be issuing major updates starting June 18th, including the premier of the KNOWLEDGE video trailer. It's unlike any I've ever seen, and I trust you'll feel the same.

Hope to see you there!

Tammy,

Hi, thanks for Spooky Canada! It looks great. I love ghost stories and I'm excited to read it. Did you get your books yet? I think that every book is being shipped seperatly so I will continue to watch the mail for the Host.

Thanks for being a great Santa!

Carrie
Thanks for the note. We're submitting all of them and letting BD sort it out. It seems like stock level depends upon where you are when you hit the site.

Thank you for taking the time to read my novel, "The Last Day." Hope you enjoyed it. Best wishes...
I'm very excited about the books :-)and am looking forward to reading them. I've never heard of either, so it's really cool to read entirely new (to me) books. The description and first line of Patient Zero is intriguing, and The Name of the Wind has a beautiful and sounds like a fantastic escape :-)
Hello. I read that you were looking to sponsor someone to do SantaThing this year? If you're still available, I would love to be adopted. m(_ _)m I have wanted to do it since I have been a member of this site, but I just never seem to have the money. And I haven't gotten books for Christmas since I was a little kid, hehe. And I promise the soonest future year that I am better off I shall adopt someone else!
Hi,
You're welcome. I hope you enjoy the books- if you get a chance let me know your thoughts; especially on Go go girls- I loved it and hope you will too. Happy belated x-mas present. Hope the snow clears for you soon (if it hasn't yet).
Jen
My SantaThing package arrived today - thank you! Those are both books that I've wanted, so I can't wait to read them. Great job!!
Thanks for making me a reading friend. Your favs include Charlaine Harris and Lee Child. Ms. Harris writes great cross-genre books I've gotten a kick out of reading. My new P.I. novel PELHAM FELL HERE has been compared by the Lansing State Journal to Lee Child's books. High praise, indeed, but I only keep striving for that level. Thanks again.

I loved your review for Breaking Dawn. I was truly worried that Stephenie would ruin the ending for me, the way JK Rowling ruined Harry Potter (in my eyes.) I'm glad she decided to keep her characters true to themselves. When it comes to Stephenie's writing, I, too, await any new works. And I can't wait until her companion to the Twilight Saga comes out at the end of December!
Hi Tammy, I like the way you think. Got a good giggle out of the Oprah comment. I see we share some books in common. It's good to know I'm not alone. Sometimes I feel a freak for not jumping on the Oprah bandwagon. Reading the comment left by jseger I have to strongly agree with those recommendations. Adding to it Nicholson's - They Hunger & Little's - The Store. Superb works of horror.

...I've also got a deep interest in zombie horror, (some might call it an issue *lol*) but I haven't read much in that particular category. Got any recommendations?

~Lisa
I didn't have time to go through your whole library to refine my recommendations, but authors with a catalogue of horror that I would suggest (and a good 'starter book' from that author): Bentley Little (The Ignored, The Association), Peter Straub (Ghost Story, Mr. X), Scott Nicholson (The Red Church), Sarah Pinborough (Breeding Ground), Tim Lebbon (Berserk), Michael Laimo (Deep in the Darkness), Simon Clark (Vampyrrhic), Douglas Clegg (You Come When I Call You) and Anthony Izzo (Cruel Winter)
