I enjoyed Personal Demons and the first sequel Desperate Souls a lot. I must get round to reading Cosmic Forces this year.

I've read the ones italicized. Any other recs from this list that aren't Laymon?

And besides Lansdale and Wilson as I already love those guys

Summer of Night by Dan Simmons and The Hungry Moon by Ramsey Campbell were my two favorites of the year. I never really liked Simmons, but that book was very good.As far as The Hungry Moon, IMO, you really can"t go wrong with Campbell

As for other books I would recommend:

Pork Pie Hat by Peter Straub....I picked up the Cemetary Danse edition, but I know this novella has printed in several Halloween anthogys like October Dreams...good stuff.

Clickers and Clickers 2 were mindless fun.

Hell House by Richard Matherson is awesome! Forget the movie and read the book.

Halloween by curtis Richards is a fun novelazation of the movie, but I might be biased, since I'm a Halloween fanatic.

Johnny Halloween by Norman Partridge is a good collection of stories.

Have fun and let me know what you think of the books if you pick any of them up.

It's not the quantity so much as the quality.

That's true and I have read some great ones this year. A lot of H.G Wells, Rudyard Kipling, and Jules Verne.
