Finally finished rereading this one. That was a great trip through nostalgia. I had completely forgotten the ending too so it was nice to revisit. I wish I had started with Lost Souls because all the mentions of Ghost and Steve made me miss that book as well.

Fun, gay, gore-romp for those who like such things.

I love little details like this. Something that makes the you know the chapter titles were personalized complementary to the story. Aaah, book design 🖤💜🖤

Doing a reread of this one. I didn‘t realize it, but it‘s been nearly 20 years since I actually read it and now I‘m terrified I won‘t like it any more. I guess it‘s better to know either way.

October makes me miss people that aren‘t here anymore and I thought reading something that reminds me of those times might be nice.

4thhouseontheleft I would have never guessed skeletons. 😜 The fall/Halloween decor is slowly coming out at my house...even though it‘s in the 90s. Michael‘s has some great Halloween stuff this year! It‘s my favorite time of the year. (edited) 1y
SkeletonKey @4thhouseontheleft - Time to do some shop browsing 🙂 1y

I HAVE to do this. Most of what I like to read is creepy anyway, so it will be extra fun to find some people to discuss it with! I guess this will be my first challenge on Litsy too. #screamathon #horror #october #challenge #halloween @4thhouseontheleft

Zack and Trevor have been very inspirational to me over the years.
