    The latest edition of the Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. Every few years I reread that because it's just so good.

    Just ordered online:

    Crime Stories and Other Writings - Dashiell Hammett:
    I wanted a collection of Hammett's short stories since that's arguably where the whole hard-boiled school of detective fiction might be said to have started. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any single volume that collects all of Hammett's short stories, so I settled on this one. I'll probably want to get two other Hammett collections, The Big Knockover and especially Nightmare Town as well, which should just about cover his short fiction.

    Life of Charlotte Brontė - Elizabeth Gaskell:
    I've been reading or re-reading several of the Brontė sisters' novels and other writings over the last few months and knew I wanted to try this as soon as I heard about it. Gaskell was a good novelist herself and a personal friend of Charlotte Brontė's, so I'm looking forward to this one quite a bit.

    Only the Tenant, and that was a while back ago.

    I remember enjoying it but I couldn't remember much of the story; so I decided to buy it so I can get reacquainted with it.

    Ive been reading the Ravenloft Compendium books lately, written by "Van Richten" or something. I have to say I'm getting quite addicted to them.

    Not a book i bought but one who was given to me as a present. (birthday, 20th of December)

    The Twilight saga, the complete film archive. Which is an awesome gift that i really appreciate cause i kinda hate those movies and now i can learn lot of useless stuff i don't give a crap about concerning them.

    It's like giving a Viking jersey to a Packers fan, the melange of irony and derision is excellent.

    My sister gave me the book I asked for for Xmas. Hank Phillippi Ryan's The Other Woman. It was named one of the best novels of the year by Suspense magazine.

    I'm actually curious about this one. I'm trying to get into detective stories so I may have to give it a shot. I'm a writer and making a detective story is a huge challenge.
