This is the first book I’ve ever read by Glen Duncan, and he’s written eight books. Where have I been? I wonder. I have a lot of catching up to do, because I loved this book. I love werewolf stories.  There is something appealing about a character who is compelled to commit monstrous acts, but […]

Back when I first started collecting books, these two guys were some of my favorite writers in the fields of horror and science fiction.  Their books were often published in collectible editions by small presses such as Dark Harvest, and in beautiful editions from British publishers like Kinnell and Headline.  This month they both have new […]

Here’s what I love to do…

…I love to read, I love to write, I love “Buffy” and “Bones,” science fiction, fantasy, and horror. I’ve been a book collector for about 25 years. There’s lots of other stuff I love, like my family, of course, and my dogs. I’m not going to promise never to talk about them, but my main […]
