Not Only A Bargain, But A Damn Good Read Too!

I’ve started reading a new book today – Nocturnes by John Connolly. I’d never even heard of him until last week saw the book in a charity shop and liked the cover so picked it up and took a look. It was only £1, and, when I looked inside it, it was a signed 1st…


Reading, Reading, Reading …

We may be having a bit of a heatwave, here in the UK, but I’m stil reading chillers – Graham Masterton’s Snowman and The Terror, to be exact. Actually it is 2 books bound into one volume. They are part of his Rook Series (books 2+3). I’ve never read the first one yet, so I…


The Boy’s Lost Interest

It’s no good. I give up. I just can’t work up any interest in Lovecraft. H.P. sauce, perhaps, but H.P lovecraft has had his chips – for now anyway. I have been reading a Graham Masterton instead. Talking of things lost. The Lost Boys was on the T.V. last night. I’ve got it on video somewhere,…


So Many Remakes These Days

I’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately that mention movie remakes, like the omen. It has been interesting for me, because I have been noticing for a long time now that remakes seem to be very much the Hollywood thing, these days. The reason that it has been interesting for me is that I…


Still Reading H. P. Lovecraft

Well, I am still reading Lovecraft (and no it isn’t a text book for rebellious virgins). H.P. Lovecraft has been credited with inventing the modern horror tradition. I know. It says so on the back of my book. The thing is reading some of Lovecraft’s work has been on my to-do-list for quite some time….


From A Demon Seed to Lovecraft

I finished reading Demon Seed, yesterday. There was a lot of hidden depth to it, but I can’t say that it was on of my all time favourite Dean Koontz novels. I may hunt out the original version sometime, though, and try that. As I have never read any of Lovecraft’s works – crazy aint…


An edit a day keeps the mistakes at bay

Still editing my vampire novelette. It seems to be taking forever, but it is surprising how many mistakes I have found. Mind you, if I go through it again, after I have already supposedly got it right, I bet I will find even more that I have missed. Such is life. I am reading Dean…


Gunslinger – WoW!

Finished the Gunslinger. If you haven’t read it, then I can recommend it. It’s very good. The guy has a real distinctive way of talking, I have got to say. But then, it is a Stephen King so I knew it would be good. _________________________________________________________ I’ve finished plotting my sea level graphs and have got my…


Editing My Vampire Novelette

I have finished editing my vampire novelette, Vampire Loving. I spent most of Sunday editing it and trying to put a polish on it. Whether or not it will shine in a publisher’s eye is entirely another matter. I hope so. I had a lot of fun writing it. Anyway, I printed it out in…
