The Nightly Disease | Max Booth III
post image

THE NIGHTLY DISEASE reads like it was written by a great Russian existentialist held at knife-point by Jim Jarmusch and Tobe Hooper, who force the guy to take his pants off. Meanwhile, one Cohen brother and a magical realist stand by watching. I love it.

Reggie Just started this. The introduction alone is lonely, strange, and beautiful. Lol 5y

Greener Pastures | Michael Wehunt
post image
Pickpick

Here is a collection of weird and beautiful fiction. If you're drawn to literary horror, as I am these days, Michael Wehunt's GREENER PASTURES should be top of your list. Outstanding prose threading through a series of tales that reveal only a modicum of their mystery. Can't recommend enough.

Came across this in Barnes and Noble, of all places, a couple weeks after hearing William F. Nolan and Jason Brock extol the virtues of California horror at StokerCon. I have a new passion. :)

"Their grief wasn't his to bear, he knew. But it was inside him all the same, like a secret entrusted to a messenger." Beautiful, strange, haunting novel. Never quite read anything like it.

Really digging Buehlman's vampires. Finished this one up and jumped right into SUICIDE MOTOR CLUB. Great prose that reads so fast. My new favorite adjective for a good read: "propulsive."

The Fireman | Joe Hill

THE FIREMAN is ambitious and satisfying. Most importantly, Joe Hill's affinity for MARY POPPINS and the original PETE'S DRAGON is great. He's never disappointing.

The Heavenly Table: A Novel | Donald Ray Pollock
post image
Pickpick

By turns dark, funny, terrifying, and unbearably suspenseful, THE HEAVENLY TABLE is a moving piece of fiction about the roles that kindness, cruelty, mercy, and chance play in shaping human ends. And the book doesn't discount faith, even in its darkest moments. A great novel.

The Infinite | Nicholas Mainieri
Pickpick

A debut novel worthy of the accolades it's receiving, THE INFINITE is a lyrical, heartbreaking portrait of first love and the mysteries that lie beyond it. Can't recommend this highly enough.

review

THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER is a magical, terrifying, beautiful read. It's a book so fresh it feels as if it were written yesterday. Had a student at a reading ask me once what my favorite book was. Answer: this one. It gave us Charles Laughton's filmic masterpiece, sure, but it deserves to be remembered in its own right. Can't recommend enough.
