Halloween Bingo 2017 - Haunted Houses
The Shining - Stephen King

I'm going old school for this one. I used to read a lot of horror back in the 70s and 80s; authors like Dennis Wheatley, Clive Barker, and James Herbert, but my choice is by Stephen King, the modern master of the genre, and the guy who scared me far more than the other three put together. (I still fucking hate clowns). 

 

I read an awful lot of King's stuff back in the day, and the reason I chose The Shining, was because although I’ve seen the film, I’ve never actually read the book. But really the main reason I chose it, is because I can get another Simpsons reference in. 

 

 

This was originally going to be my '80s Horror' choice until I realized it was actually written in 1977.

Still loving this crossover
ROM vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #3 - John Barber,Christos Gage,Alex Milne

I'm not sure I want this to be wrapped up in just four issues: I can see the benefit in a sustained storyline over four issues.   There's no risk of dragging this out, but damn, I'm just having so much fun with a Cybertronian Solstar Knight that I don't really want this to end...

Her Knight in Shining Stone (The Gargoyles of New York #1) by Tamsin Baker
Her Knight in Shining Stone - Tamsin Baker
Her Knight in Shining Stone is the first short story in The Gargoyles of New York series. We meet Roman, the elder of four brothers, all gargoyles who have yet to find their mate (Beloved). He is suffering pain when he shifts, a clear sign that he needs to meet his Beloved soon or he will be stuck in his gargoyle form. He finds her working as a waitress and the connection between them is instantaneous. Whilst she feels the connection, Cristiana also has doubts over whether she can be with Roman when she won't see him at all during the day.
 
Being as this is a short story, it moves along at a very swift pace. I would have preferred to have it 'fleshed out' a bit more - more detail on the history of Gargoyles, the mystery surrounding the danger that is coming to them, Cristiana's history - but that is just me. This was very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I have been left wanting to know more, especially about Rafe. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and would recommend it as a quick read, coffee break, book.

Shining Through (Red Hot Russians) by Elizabeth Harmon
Shining Through (Red Hot Russians) - Elizabeth Harmon

 

The career of her dreams has become the life of her nightmares.  Perfection is the goal and Tabitha is determined to deliver the goods, even if her heart is no longer in the sport. Shining Through is an up close and personal look at the drama behind the glamour of ice skating.  There's grace, heat and romance.  Ms. Harmon spotlights two characters working their way back, in an atmosphere that is as cold as the stage on which they perform.  The excitement of competition has nothing on the sparks that heat up the connection between Daniil and Tabitha.
