I just finished a re-read of this book with the Horror Aficionados group over at Goodreads. I'm so glad I participated! I first read this book in junior high or high school. It's been about 30 years since then, unfortunately. I've read The Stand and IT a couple of times each, but I never did pick ...

I had heard quite a bit of talk about Salem's Lot before starting it. Mainly that it's quite terrifying to read. While I did enjoy it and found it a bit disturbing I just wasn't scared. Because of that I can't help but be slightly disappointed. Ben Mears has moved into the Jeruselom's Lot and move...

Read in 2012 (from October 10, 2011 to March 11, 2012) I would have to agree with myself as a person who read King's Cell that King is a completely mediocre writer. The fact that he's appreciated by the reading community so much makes all of this even more ridiculous. I assume that his kind of ...

Don't get me wrong--I love Buffy--but one of the things we can lay on its doorstep is the glamorization and sexing up of vampires. And we can probably blame Anne Rice too. And LK Hamilton. So nowadays vampires in one blockbuster series popular with tweens sparkle, shine and are the (rich) boy next d...
