Finderlohn: Roman - Stephen King,Bernhard Kleinschmidt

Zwar nicht unbedingt notwendig, aber ich, bevor man dieses Buch lesen will, würde empfehlen, Mr Mercedes von Stephen King zu lesen. Die zwei Bücher sind miteinander eng verbunden.

Das Lied von Eis und Feuer 10: Ein Tanz mit Drachen von Martin. George R.R. (2012) Broschiert - Martin. George R.R.

So froh, dass ich diese Serie endlich gerade beendet haben konnte! Ich dachte schon sie wird nie enden... 10 Bücher darin!!! So viele Male wollte ich nämlich sagen, genug von Drachen, Daenerys, Cersei, Tyrion, Lennisters, von Eunuchen ganz zu schweigen. Aber Diese ganze Geschichte würde nicht vollständig, wenn man das Lesen halbwegs eingestellt hätte. Im ganzen lesenswert.

Review of Some Will Not Sleep by Adam Nevill
Some Will Not Sleep: Selected Horrors - Adam Nevill

I finally got around to reading Adam Nevill and only wish that I had done so sooner, this man is amazing. I had originally bought a limited copy of Some Will Not Sleep as a bundle with a T-shirt and bookmark from Adam's online store, Ritual Limited, but also ended up buying the e-book so that I didn't have to smudge my gorgeous copy. That book cover was all the convincing I needed to know that I needed it in my collection.

 

I have a love/hate relationship with most short story collections, as it sometimes feels like authors like to squeeze in their garbage stories just to get them published, sandwiched between reprints and the few good stories that hooked you into buying it in the first place. There was not a single story in Some Will Not Sleep that I didn't love or that I think was less than stellar. The stories are creepy in a way that most authors can't pull off. With a blend of folklore mixed with the utterly irrational and bizarre, it's unsettling in a way that makes you want to crawl under the covers of your bed like a child, from the things lurking outside that shouldn't exist. I'm pretty sure that more than 'some' will not be sleeping after reading this.

 

I had previously read Adam's free 3-story collection called Before You Sleep which has one story that isn't in this collection and it's also very good. The plan at this point is to pretty much just read everything this man writes from here on out, he's -that- good.

I did not receive a free copy.

 

I bought both the limited edition version and the e-book and they were both worth it. :)

Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors
Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors - Weston Ochse,David Whitman Quick, somebody get me a banjo!

This one that has been staring me down from by bookshelf for waaay too long. It’s about dang time I done got to it.

Turns out Scary Rednecks is a pretty good and appropriately inappropriate collection of backwood inspired shorts. There are little devils in the outhouse, catfish Gods, Snake bit dicks, UFO’s, bad juju and badder voodoo. A little bit of everything that goes with redneck horror and even a little bloodsucker moonshine to wash it all down. Comedy, horror, gore and more.

As with most collections there were a few I liked better than others, but for the most part these tales were enjoyable with only one or two that were a bit uneven for me. 3+ Stars.
