Default Richard Laymon anyone?

I just got finished reading the first laymon collection, The Beast house trilogy and I just LOVED it. there are not a lot of things around about laymon and so far I've read 4 of his novels, including The traveling vampire show, which is the one I started with. I really liked the style and the stories are great. I especially like how he doesn't hold back with the details . I can't get enough of him!
Anyone else reads Laymon? Any suggestions? Any other authors like him?

I read Blood Games and a little of some other book. I didn't like it. A little too, I dunno, boring I guess. Lots of cliches and stuff. Just didn't turn my crank.

I read one called Body Rides by him. It was the first of his i'd read and i thought it was pretty good. I've got a couple more but haven't gotten around to reading them yet.

I just finished The Woods Are Dark and it just might be my favorite Richard Laymon book yet. Reads just like a horror film. I would love to see a film adaption of this.

I read the first of the Beast House series and it was pretty good.

I'm more of Brian Keene guy though.

Have you read Keene's new one Castaways? It's based on the beasts from Laymon's Beast House. I though it was excellent.

Come Out Tonight was the first one(and first horror book) I read.
ive read:
endless night-really good
beware- really good
darkness, tell us- really good
funland-kinda felt like lost boys, without the vampires
in the dark- way too long
no sanctuary- good
one rainy night- good
quake- ive read like 150 pages or so, i read it was shocking and stuff, but its nothing special yet
woods are dark- really good, like hills have eyes in the woods
flesh- i read about 150 pages. I thought it was boring and it was hardly anything like it said it was about.
