- About My Library
- I 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).
- About Me
- Reader & 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.
