    I've read almost all of his, my absolute favourite was "Dark rivers of the heart" closely followed by "Strangers"

    I'm reading 'The Stand' by Stephen King again at the moment

    Have you tried Richard Laymon? A very twisted soul, atleast he had an outlet with his writing, or he would have been a serial killer I think!!

    A lot of similar tastes , I love sci-fi. Asimov, Larry Niven etc. Also Dean Koontz, Steven King, Micheal Crichton, Greg Bear....

    Damn, I need to get my laptop back or I'm gonna need to make a trip to Half Priced books.

    I think the last thing I read was something by Asimov.

    Dean Koonce and Stephen King are both good. I've enjoyed many of their stories. But they are both derivative of their predecessors. I'm serious, if you want to give your brain a good workout and read real literature and get some chills going at the same time, try M.R. James or even Henry James ("Turn of the Screw") or even Washington Irving.

    I've also read an abridged version of Arthur C. Clark's "Sentinel" and a movie book adaptation of "2001" but I probably should read more of his fiction.

    The good thing about a snowy weekend, is that I spent all day inside today finishing off that "Marie Antoinette" book. Didn't end as well as it started.

    You two rounded out my list... I just had a brain fart and forgot to list them. Asimov should have been first on my list as I read tons of his stuff. After seeing "2001" at the theater I had to go out and buy the book... just to figure out what I had just seen.

    Stephen King, Koonce and Asimov rock. Never heard of Mr James, will have to check that out.

    Right now I'm reading Frank Barron's What Fish Don't Want You to Know: An Insider's Guide to Freshwater Fishing

    Excellent book about the formation of a new type of unit and how effective they were during the Vietnam conflict.

    (13 cents was the cost of one round)

    not reading anything at the mo but I've just picked up a Maeve Binchy book up The Copper Beech I think it's called, she's an irish novelitist who manages to pull me into the story and get me hooked.

    Favourite authors so far have been Stephen King (not read all of them just a handful) James Herbert's Fluke and The Survivor,

    ....Catherine Cookson, Judith Krantz, Virginia Andrews and Maeve Binchy.....obviously they're the chick books and nowt you men folk would be into reading
