I'm surprised at how much of the pithy, funny dialogue came straight from the novel. I'm also surprised at the potentially bleak ending the book had. I think all the changes they made for the movie were excellent choices. All in all, it's a very good book.



One of the best Lovecraft anthologies I've read in ages. Although, unlike the editor, I mostly hated those that actually incorporated/turned HP himself into a character in the story. The majority of the other tales were excellent.

Dead of Winter by Brian Moreland. Good , entertaining book .Ever since Samhain Publishing started putting out horror, they have been releasing out some seriously good books.

Since the breaking of my Kindle I've had to dig and dig in boxes of books and decided to read Fear and Loathing for hte 10,000,000.000 and a few cents time.

Outrageous Conduct: Art, Ego, and the Twilight Zone Case by Stephen Farber & Marc Green. A friend gave it to me, as he said it made him hate John Landis. I always thought the tragic deaths were a horrible but "honest" accident... they weren't. So many people needed to be held accountable, it's insane. Landis has blood on his hands and he never gave one shit (at Vic Morrow's funeral, he actually said "At least he died making a great film." IN A EULOGY)

It's also an interesting and weird glimpse into the Hollywood power structure.

Yeah, Landis was completely careless. I remember reading somewhere that he and most of the crew were coked up at the time as well. So...coke, explosives, helicopter's hovering 20 feet above ground and a psycho director...not a good mix.

There's another book on this incident called Special Effects, and it says that Spielberg was on set immediately after the accident and hauled ass before the authorities arrived...

The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Disappointing and depressing

Beyond Bizarre: Frightening Facts and Blood Curdling True Tales

Another great book by Varla Ventura that I highly recommend to anyone interested in occult trivia. I found a lot of interesting tidbits in there.
