Yup... when I started making contact with publishers and getting ARC's I had a moment like 'What? People will send me advance copies of horror novels for FREE and then let me write my opinion of them? Why haven't I been doing this for YEARS?!?!!'

However, you can pick it up at Shocklines by following the link below:

Thanks again Scott! And as a matter of fact, if anyone out there does reviews...contact me. It has to either be for a website or a publication, blogs don't count unless you have thousands of visitors a month. But, yeah...if you're a reviewer, contact me. I like to make sure we have our copies out there for the good folks that review in our genre! And, I'm pretty good at doing exchanges as well. So, if you're an author with a new release and want to swap a copy, contact me and I'll let you know what we can do!

i don't have a ton of time to read anymore, but i've been reading Legion of the Dead by Geoffrey Caine and some random Bukowski poetry books. I was contemplating re-reading The Stand, but i decided against it.

Halfway done Monster Island by David Wellington its not holding my attention very well. Perfect Nightmare by John Saul havent read any Saul in years so figured Id give it a shot. I just picked up Grey Area by Will Self, its the first Ive read by this author but I will definately be looking for more.

I'm reading The Interpretation of Culture by Clifford Geertz. It's basically dry theory, I just have to read it for school. So far it isn't too bad though, not customary of normal assigned reading.

I WISH I could go back and read that one again, having never read it before. I am, admittedly...the biggest Bentley Little fan out there. That guy can really make me burn through a book...

I am completely unable to leave a book unfinished. That being said, I'm currently trudging through a book called Missing Monday by Matthew Costello. I've never had a book that has so much going on, yet remained utterly stagnant and uninteresting. But I must continue...

Agreeing with a couple you guys: Bentley Little rules. Can't wait for his new one (THE BURNING) this Fall.
