Think I recall reading a little small-run indie release called 'A Cold Season'...

Last night read the next Spectral chapbook, "The Eyes of Water" by Alison Littlewood. Not bad, not bad at all. Anyone else tried her stuff?


Alison 'taking over the entire world of horror and speculative fiction' Littlewood, that one?

Really looking forward to this latest from Spectral.

I've been reading Lavie Tidhar books all month: Cloud Permutations, Gorel and the Pot-Bellied God, and now The Bookman. Very impressed so far.

Just finishing The Leaping by Tom Fletcher which is a brilliant take on the werewolf mythology and shows you can breathe new life into an old trope.

Absolutely. What karswell said.

And I just read Charlotte Bond's novella "Hunter's Moon".

I'll be moving onto The Leaping soon I hope, having thoroughly enjoyed The Thing on the Shore.

Dipping in and out of Ellen Datlow's Best Horror and loving it. Quite a few are second time reads for me and still very rewarding.

I loved The Leaping and The Thing on the Shore - he's a clever guy, that there Tom Fletcher. Looking forward to Ravenglass Eye.

Reading Michael Moorcock's very first publications, the 'ancient Mars' trilogy. Reissued by Paizo. Originally published under the name Edward P Bradbury.

Books renamed:

'City of the Beast' (aka Warriors of Mars)
'Lord of the Spiders' (aka Blades of Mars)
'Master of the Pit' (aka Barbarians of Mars)


Good adventure--and not bad considering he wrote the first book in 9 days!

Written at a time when fantasy novels weren't all doorstop length, but yeah, still impressive.

Last night read "Joe & Me" by David Moody, the first This Is Horror chapbook.

Bucketloads of amphetamines? [-X

I'm surprised at nine days but for a different reason - it's six days more than I've heard he took for most of those short books. I remember reading that he would spend two days writing, then a third day on a rewrite.
