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 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).

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.

I'd be up for it, too - preferably not old Stephen King because I've pretty much read all of those. Did you ever read The House of Leaves? That one sounded good.

I read House of Leaves. I REALLY liked it (but I will admit to skimming parts of it).

These are the horror books I have been eyeing recently. I haven't read them yet, but have heard good things:

Haunted Lily: The Nightmare Ball by Sidney Fox

A Good and Happy Child by Justin Evans

The Woman in Black by Susan Hill


I am open to suggestions though!

Of these three - my pick would be The Woman in Black.

I'm in the middle of a novel right now, but I'd probably be ready to start a new one in another week.

That sounds good to me! I have a couple to finish up and get back to the library, so sometime next week or so works. Anyone else?

I went to Barnes and Noble today, but they didn't have the book. I'll try the library and Borders in the next couple of days. I plan on starting it Wednesday or Thursday (probably Thursday) if I can get my hands on it.
