I've only read his novel, Ghost Story.
And it was a great novel. He really worked on a big canvas with that one, and I was impressed with the confidence of his prose and the unfolding of the story, as presented from multiple characters' viewpoints.

As a writer myself, his ability to amass a great amount of small town characters and interweave them into a coherent plot, is one which I desire to attain at some point in my career.

Oh, and there's a fantastic scene within the town cinema, where Night of the Living Dead is playing, and the main characters are fighting off a ghoul.
