Mofo:  Dan Simmons lives up the road a piece from me in Longmont, Colorado.  I've never gone up and knocked on his door, nor bothered him in our local pubs, so can't claim personal contact.  Hoping to meet him as part of our local theatre audiences.  Many of his contemporary bits are set in towns very much like Longmont.

I've only read Song of Kali in addition to The Terror. Dan Simmons is a pretty good writer. Better than a lot; but what really impresses me is that he spans so many genres. Fairly rare to see that these days.

Working on Danse Macabre by Stephen King right now. It started strong, but now that he's talking about novels instead of movies, he's becoming very "lit professor"-ish, and it's pretty dull.

I've been reading The Catcher in The Rye.  Picked it up over the summer, just now about reading it.  Good book.  Never read it before.

Re-reading Shape Your Self, by my on-court hero, Martina Navratilova.

I also picked up a little tract called What If You Died Tonight? that someone had left in the organic food aisle at Krogers. It was well-drawn, lurid, quite entertaining, frightening if you let your mind drift that way. In a mere sixteen pages good prevailed, the wicked saw retribution for their wayward "secular" habits, and the rectitude of the artist's personal epistemology was demonstrated. A fast-moving plot to say the least.

V for Vendetta
Judge Dredd Case File 08
Batman : Dark Victory
And I've placed an order for Clive Barker's Books of Blood vol 4-6
Thinking about getting Stephen Kings "IT"...I've read The Shining, Christine and Dream Catcher (was it one word or two). Didn't like any of them, in fact, found them really boring but I have IT on DVD and it seemed cool. Who knows maybe it's worth getting.

MY IDEA OF FUN - Will Self - A satirical novel.  I haven't gotten far into it.  The author is obviously in love with his own prose, but he pulls it off for the most part.  I'm about 10% of the way through and the plot isn't apparent yet, but the main character seems to have disturbing fantasies about killing and molesting hobo's (in that order) and there's an ominous character referred to only as "The Fat Controller" who's slated to show up in the future.

MONDO MACABRO - Pete Tombs - A great little trade paperback on weird 3rd world exploitation cinema, covering Hong Kong, Indonesia, Turkey, the Philippines, etc.  I think it would be impossible for anyone on this board to read this book without highlighting a dozen or more titles that sound like must-sees.

"A Critical History and Filmography of Toho's Godzilla Series" -- pretty good, I had a copy years ago that got donated to the library by accident, so I was quite happy to receive a new copy this year for Christmas...a little disappointed that it hasn't been updated to include the Shinsei series, instead ending with "Godzilla vs. Destroyah" (1995).

No, that's vol 1-3.
It has the story that Candyman was based on, though.

I just finished a book called SEARCHING FOR THE ORIGINAL BIBLE by Randall Price - about how accurately the Scriptures have been copied and transmitted through the centuries.  Very educational.  And I am nearly done with CENTENNIAL CRISIS, by Chief Justice William Renqhist - the story of the disputed 1876 Presidential Election.  Got several more "haven't read yet" on my shelf to choose from next.
