Yeah COME OUT TONIGHT is definitely one of his most 'base' novels. Still great fun but I'd put it in with ENDLESS NIGHT, NO SANCTUARY and AFTER MIDNIGHT.

For a, dare I say it, more sophisticated Laymon definitely go with THE STAKE, THE TRAVELLING VAMPIRE SHOW or even QUAKE.

I read After Midnight earlier this year and then just finished Into The Fire and loved it. I like his style.

One Rainy Night is the best one I've read by him. It's about a black rain that turns it's victims into murderous lunatics. I love that shit.

I've read one Laymon book: The Travelling Vampire Show. While it could have been shorter by about 50-75 pages, it was a great "nostalgia" horror story and the twist ending wasn't something I expected.

I enjoyed the book. I'll probably read more Laymon in the future.

I just picked up The Cellar. Stark stuff so far. Pretty daring for a book written over twenty years ago.

I was first introduced to Laymon on a whim-picked up One Night in Lonesome October-was hooked thereafter. I think I've read just about every novle of his. Sometimes, his books became a bit repetitive in both narrative and plot line-however, if you want a healthy dose of sex,bloodshed and general mayhem, he is the one to check out.

Yeah, THE CELLAR is good stuff - so long as you can stomach the frequent and pornographically described sexual abuse of preteens. Shocked

I've forgotten which ones I've read and haven't read. These new covers are throwing me.

Reading the plot summaries might help.

Not to sound too arrogant but you might want to re-read some of my posts at the top of the thread to give you some ideas of which books might be best to try.

Number 1 choice? IN THE DARK

I'm heading out after work here to pick one up. Titles popping up a lot are the cellar, island, and yyou say in the dark. Good places to start. I appreciate the suggestion

That's the problem: How many of Laymon's books involve an old high school classmate making good on his lecherous intentions toward the protagonist of the story? Or the random psycho that person/people run into along a stretch of backwater road?
