Cheers Paul. The first one was laced with some strong sex scenes, so guess that's where the guy is coming from. And, coincidentally, just had an email from Cemetery Dance, who are releasing his second novel in the US next March, though they've changed the title:-

I just started reading "Roman Hell" by Mark Mellon. Review in next issue, probably.

Finished "Roman Hell", and also just whipped through Paul Finch's "King Death", which is to be published as a Spectral Press chapbook in December.

Just finished The Concret Grove by Gary McMahon, which I enjoyed greatly.

I'm almost reaching the end of Nightmare Movies by Kim Newman. As well as very imformative, I found the book to be extremely funny in places.

Just started a book called Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, which looks incredibly intriguing, and contains a wonderful collection of weird photographs in with the text.

I'm a few chapters into Miss Peregrine too, Stephen - loving it so far.

And just finished the Book of Human Skin, which was wonderful.

Just finished Mile 81 by Stephen King Thematically a companion piece to From A Buick 8 and very readable and entertaining as you'd expect from the master.

Reading now:

Nancy Goats by Weston Ochse
The Burning Soul by John Connolly
Dead Bad Thinds by Gary McMahon[/i]

Just finishing off 'Horns' by Joe Hill.

I enjoyed 'Heart-Shaped Box', but for me it didn't quite hit the giddy heights of the best of Hill's short fiction in '20th Century Ghosts'. 'Horns', however, does. Simply brilliant writing.

Finished Samuel Butler's "Erewhon" which was a real struggle, but had some interesting 19th Century views on the advancement of machines. Also finished the Charlie Chan novel "The House Without A Key" which was a neat old-style detective story.

Currently reading Black Statics #23 and #24 and also the Raymond Carver short story collection: "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love".

Just finished my first Bryant and May mystery, Seventy-Seven Clocks, and very enjoyable it was too.

Starting, at long last, The Prestige.

I'll also be tracking down the King that Ross mentioned, I have quite soft spot for Buick 8 - next to The Shining and Desperation it's probably the one I've read the most times.

^ Mile 81 is a standalone story but there is an excerpt of the new novel packaged with it.

Oh yeah, looked at that too quickly. In which case Ray, go back to being disappointed.

E-format only is very annoying. Some of us still like reading dead trees. :(

Anyway - I'm currently on Nicholas Royle's 'The Matter of the Heart' - figured I'd better try and catch up with a new novel coming out!

That's probably my favourite Nick Royle novel - hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
