I would give Bryan Smith and Jeff Strand a go. Dweller by Strand is brilliant (I can't actually make out which ones you have italicized.)

Got Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw through interlibrary loan. I read the first few pages and I'm already hooked. May have to put Damnation Game down for awhile.

Is Brian Keene's Urban Gothic good? And, due to the fact there's no italian translation of the book, is easy to read?

Just re-read Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age. Epic story - would make an awesome movie.

From Your Friends - Art, Photos and Stories inspired by Blind Melon. Pretty boring & way overpriced at $49.99, but at least all proceeds went to the Shannon Hoon Vigil Fund and the Musicares Foundation. Only for the serious Melonhead that's for sure.

It wasnt bad, but it was cliched and felt like it was done before, especially the ending. If it was a movie, it wouldve been a black version of People Under the Stairs meets Hills Have Eyes.

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.
Hell House, Summer of Night, and The Hungry Moon have been added to the library queue. The don't have any of the others. I'll get them eventually.

If I remember correctly I couldn't get through Summer of Night but I'll give it another shot.

Just finished Dweller. It was decent. I will check out some more of Strands stuff.

Familiar with Smith (The Killing Kind at least. Think maybe one other) and I am a fan.
