Matheson was one of the writers that fueled my early reading life. He is underrated and overlooked because of the genre in which he plied his craft. Yet many of today's writer's owe him a great deal, and that is what this book is about. Those writers paying their debt to the master. This collection is loaded with prequels, sequels, and stories inspired by Richard Matheson - including the first ever collaboration between Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill. Do you need to go back and read Richard Matheson's works? Not really, but it will enhance these stories and reading Matheson is always a pleasure. ~ Reviewed by Erik Barnum

Going Postal is just absolutely classic Pratchett. In a refreshing and welcome return to form, he both satirizes and praises not only the postal service, but the whole concept of mail and communication. His notion that information has a life of its own and can affect the world could have (and probably did) come straight from modern Quantum physics. 

Pratchett has been compared to many people...Swift, Twain, Voltaire...but I think it's time to stop doing that, and time to start comparing others to him. The only problem is, there is no other living writer who compares. He's just that good.

Dark, violent and funny. James Stark survives 11 years in hell...now he has escaped and is back in L.A. looking for the "friends" that sent him there.

William Gibson's quote sums it up best "The best B movie I've read in at least twenty years. An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece, Sandman Slim swerves hell-bent through our culture's impacted gridlock of genres...it's like watching Sergio Leone and Clive Barker co-direct from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson."

A Russian bestseller available for the first time in the US. Darel, a vampire empath, must decide how much he is willing to sacrifice for the love of a human. While I enjoyed Darel, it was Meydan's mythology and political intrigue that hooked me. ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker

This trilogy is still one of my favorite. A dark, gritty fantasy whose flawed characters I became attached, especially Logen and Glotka. The first novel starts a little slow but the payoff is worth it. This novel is followed by Before They Are Hanged and Last Arguement of Kings ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker
