    It's my second-favorite of King's epic novels (The Stand being my favorite). I believe I read it exactly 30 years ago, FWIW. Great homage to the old-style horror icons I grew up watching on TV when I was a kid, too.

    Drive by James Sallis.
    Loving it so far, great and straight forward noir.
    Was looking for something in a similar vein to Brubaker and Philips’ Criminal and this is just the right route.
    Already have the sequel ordered.

    Just finished The Priory of the Orange Tree, which I've put off reading despite getting it when it came out early in the year. So. Damn. Good.

    Latest Kindle read: The Lost World (1912), the first book from the Professor Challenger series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.



    On the non-Kindle front starting tomorrow, I will be reading Gustavus Adolphus the Great (1932) by Nils Ahnlund.

    I had to pause my reading of Dracula to read a book for college. Nadie sabe más que los muertos (Nobody knows more than the dead). It was fine, a good story that mixes the neopolicial genre with the streets of Santiago de Chile, the city I live in. Now I can return to Dracula

    Recently finished another Diablo book. The Diablo II books are good, but I wish he would work outside of necromancers a bit more.
