Great timing for Halloween
Open to suggestions as far as titles but would love to do the House of leaves or old Stephen King.

Anybody?
You know you want to join me
Maybe I should just come up with a book title and just start and see who wants to join?
I'll wait a few more days to see who responds.

Boy, I feel like im talking to myself here :

How does a book club on here, work? Do we read the book and discuss it? I'm good with that and I do love certain horror books...I'm a Clive Barker fanatic, actually! But I do like Stephen King quite a lot so I'm good with whatever!

I'm happy with anything,but some authors I like are Stephen King,Clive Barker,Peter Straub and James Herbert.

I also enjoy classic horror, ghost stories such as The Woman in Black and anything with vampires in it.

I did start a new thread for The Woman in black by Susan Hill but its not up yet
I had to order one from Borders. My library doesn't have it I hope its easy for you all to find.

I am a HUGE SK fan and though I have read all his books I will happily re-read them (I've read all the dark tower books, the stand, it, and the talisman at least 5 times each).
post #16 of 38
My favorite SK novels: The Green Mile, Pet Sematary, Carrie, Firestarter

My favorite SK novelettes: The Langoliers, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption

My favorite SK short stories: L.T.'s Theory of Pets, The End of the Whole Mess, others but don't feel like looking them up

I loved House of Leaves. I'm a horror fan. I belong to the Leisure Horror book club and the Delirium Books book club, and I do proofreading for small press horror. I'd love to join yet another horror discussion group!

I really like anything by F. Paul Wilson. Especially the Repairman Jack novels. They are all page turners--usually when I'm reading one the kids get to watch extra cartoons because I want them to be quiet at the really exciting parts!!:

Is this still alive?

I'd be up for The Shining (I wrote my big undergrad paper on that novel), I just read The Ruins which was pretty good.

I'd be up for a horror book club.

I guess I'd better subscribe to this thread.

NewCrunchyDaddy: I enjoyed The Ruins. The movie was a poor second, unfortunately, but that's typical of many horror novels translated to screen.
