    I bought the Lords of Salem novelization through my Kindle reader yesterday: wow, that stunk. Glad I didn't waste money on the movie. Zombie just has no idea how to write really good, well developed characters. I didn't care about the lead or anyone else really. And while I was really expecting a bit of European Horror to drift in, there wasn't much beyond a Fulci-esque killing of one of the characters.

    Today I bought (for the third time), Bazillion Points' Murder in the Front Row. The first two copies were damaged, here's hoping the third time is the charm. I am looking forward to it. BP puts out great books on the heavy metal and hardcore scenes from a variety of perspectives, but they tend to be too bleak for me. This one is fun.

    Passing over Inferno for the time being.

    I just received a copy of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.
    This will be my first "real" sci-fi Book (I tend to shy away from sci-fi although I watch a lot of movies of this genre) so I'm looking forward to it.

    Replaced my copy of Dennis Etchinson's novelization of Carpenter's The Fog and finally bought the Howling novel (cannot believe I never read that.)

    And returned Murder in the Front Row - damaged again and nowhere near the amount of Slayer, Possessed etc. pictures than those of Metallica.

    Looks like my pre-ordered copy of Stephen King's new Hard Case Crime PB, Joyland, is due to arrive at the house today.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Let's hope it's better than his last Hard Case novel.

    Interestingly, a friend of mine who has no interest in King but is partial to mysteries & such liked it quite a bit after I mentioned it to him last year. I found the ambiguity of the (non)ending rather off-putting, myself, though I suppose in that respect it's true to the actual enigma that inspired it. Of course, that sort of thing isn't really why I, for one, read fiction.

    Indexing by Seanan McGuire. I've been trying to stay away from Kindle serials, but I can't say no to a story about defeating evil through the power of cataloging.

    That's what librarians have been doing all these years, right?

    Went to the Origins convention here in Columbus today and picked up the con exclusive anthology of super-heroic fiction called Heroes, with stories form the likes of Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole, and others, most of whom were on hand to sign the book.
