Basically an advertisement for Cult Epics line of movies, mostly just reprints of the liner notes. But there are a lot of movies here that would appeal to this crowd (including DEATH BED: THE BED THAT EATS, DRILLER KILLER, SCHOOL OF THE HOLY BEAST, the NEKROMANTIC series...). A former contributor here (not me) wrote one of the essays.

THE FISHERMAN'S TOMB - THE TRUE STORY OF THE VATICAN'S SECRET SEARCH by John O'Neill

I've been wading through two very hefty books of late, so when this slim title I ordered from Amazon came in I ditched the bio of James Madison and finished O'Neill's book in three days!  This is like one of my novels come to life, a true story of a dangerous and highly secret excavation carried out beneath the massive Basilica  of St. Peter in Rome to determine the answer to a question that had plagued the Church for centuries:  Did the mortal remains of St. Peter really reside there, on Vatican Hill?  Full of intrigue, wartime drama, personal feuds, and amazing discoveries, this is a first rate, real life Biblical archeology thriller!

Maybe I shouldn't list this as it's mostly a recipe book, but there are a lot of stories, history and techniques. I want to get into mixing more cocktails.

Thank you for the recommendation. What I really want to start out is a quick recipe guide with all the common drinks in an easy to locate format! I'm enjoying "Death & Co." but its definitely aimed at professionals. Many of the cocktails require ridiculously rare ingredients (infused agave nectar or somesuch).

ah, i see. for that you want what is known in the biz as the red book. the real title is mr. boston's official bartender's guide. check ebay, there's usually used copies at a decent price. mine was published in the late 70's, it's beat to death and filled with scraps of paper with recipes i invented, i should probably get a new copy, lol!

I recently finished Lynne Cheney's JAMES MADISON: A LIFE RECONSIDERED.
This was an excellent biography of our fourth President, the "father of the Constitution," detailed enough to be scholarly and brief enough to be interesting and easy to follow.  One takeaway for me is finding out that Madison suffered from epilepsy, something I was unaware of until now.  All in all, a nice addition to my library of Presidential biographies.  4.5/5
