Started my Halloween reading earlier this month. First off is this:

TheNightBoat.jpg
So far this is a really good story and McGammon is quite the storyteller. Not versed enough to know whether this is clichéd material or not but some of it can only be classified as edge-of-the-seater. Three quarters of the way through and showing no signs of slowing down.

Finished The Night Boat. Excellent tale of terror of voodoo/zombies from WWII. McGammon writes with a camera's eye for detail. This would make a great film if done right.

Now I've started this:

Only 60 pages into it but so far the only thing I can think of to say is "superb!" Will it be this good all the way through?

Fiction: The Hunger, by Whitley Strieber (basis for the David Bowie film), Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco.

Non-fiction: The Monster Art of Basil Gogos, written and compiled by Linda Touby, Basil's wife. This book is simply superb, WELL worth the costly cover price ($40).

Yes. Not only are those covers here, but also many, many never-before-scene sketches and other portraits of our favorite monsters that I've never seen before.
