Almost as good as Lovecraft
Also been reading stories from THE OCTOBER COUNTRY by Ray Bradbury. Equally spectacular (and creepy)
The scariest fucking thing I've ever read -----> http://www.gutenberg.org/files/10897/10897-h/10897-h.htm
Get on this shit, people.
You won't regret it, especially if you dig Lovecraft*. HPL said that "The Willows" was the finest horror story ever written.
*(psssssst: Blackwood was actually the better writer, but don't tell 87% of the metal bands that)
Re-reading this atm, just for the hell of it.
I thoroughly enjoy this serious and am awaiting the third instalment.
Recently picked up books two and three of Jo Spurrier's Children of the Black Sun trilogy. Read the first while I had a broken foot late last year. Looking forward to getting into them after I finish Name of the Wind.
Patrick Rothfuss is a cool dude. And he can do death metal face quite well
Presently reading these two books.
Man, I liked NotW, but that character is a total Mary Sue. He ALWAYS WINS. And when he doesn't, it's because of circumstances he can't control. I sort of stopped caring after a while.
Plus, Rothfuss could not stop using the word "groused" for some reason. Annoyed the shit out of me!
Stop grousing, Dick.
Read DARK HARVEST by Norman Partridge. A small town's sinister yearly ritual, a killer pumpkinhead with a butcher knife and satire/humor galore (and gore). Voice-driven, quick-hitting, told from multiple viewpoints (including the monster's), with an emotional impact that makes the damn thing borderline literature.
Good books, music and movies = sun, water and soil for the soul.
I've been slowly reading 2001: A Space Odyssey for a spell, along with random bits of Edgar Allan Poe. Sometime soon will be Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey. I expect that to go well with my given psyche, fueling my own convictions even further.
Arthur C. Clarke is probably my favorite author besides Lovecraft. Do you like this? I've never talked to someone else that's actually read the book.

I do, I really do. The first few chapters made me reexamine humanity as a whole, oddly enough I think I see where Kaczynski formulated some of his ideas about the power process, pretty fascinating stuff. If I had to pick a #1 favoUrite movie, it would likely be 2001, so I should probably read the book at least a few times. I didn't realize that the novel and movie were created at the same time, pretty cool really.
Speaking of Author S. Named as such, this quote from Robert E. Howard belongs in this thread:
I love Sci fi. The dune series is easily my favOrite ever, though I've never read anything else by herbert.
I want to read the odyssey series. I always see 2010, 2061 and the other one at the used book store, but never 2001. Based on summaries, it seems he took 2061 and the final one waaaaaay beyond with the starchild. Not sure I'd be into those two, but definitely the first two
As much as I loved the first Dune, I couldn't get into the rest. I gave up pretty quickly with the second book..........I have all kinds on the shelves though, some day!
Anybody read this dude? I never have, but considering my infatuation with things Lovecraft and Howard, I really should: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clark_Ashton_Smith
Check out Childhood's End and Rendezvous with Rama. They are the best Alien books I've ever read.
A friend of mine linked me to this. It looks pretty good though I have yet to read any of it.
