I always enjoyed chatting with the doom Literatti...

just re-read John Buchan's "Greenmantle". I can't get enough jingoistic Edwardian spy-fiction at this time of year.

heh. I loved that book.

I am presently riding through Jack L. Chalker's Midnight at the Well of Souls.

then next up most likely some speculative/esoteric horror.

Just finished Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses, starting on the Crossing... his prose reads so biblical I'm probably going to have to follow up the Border Trilogy with the old testament. (still gotta read Blood Meridian actually...)

I really like old ghost books...M.R. James especially.
Also Diary of a Drug Fiend is a smashing read.
Hangover Square by Patrick Hamilton (as well as most of his).
Brighton Rock by Graham greene is amazing.
Turn of the Screw is one of my faves...
and books by John Waters and Bruce Campbell are fantastic.
