                                                      I read just about anything.  Sci-fi, Horror, Comedy, Fantacy, History, Occult, Documentary.  I love short story collections of sci-fi and horror (short attention span).  


And I only buy the magazines for the articles!  wink.gif

Neenron, it's a thumping good read - unputdownable (ahem). Not particularly scary, more gripping (like the Blair Witch Project).

KC, my fave Koontz novel is 'Strangers'. A good read. But I started to find Koontz to be a bit biggotted somehow, and stopped reading him.

                                                      I forgot my favorite.  A serial thing, about 13 books, called "Traveler" by D.B. Drumm.  Think dime novel Mad Max ripoff.

                                                      I've read all about 4 or 5 of Stephen King's books, my two favorite of his are Pet Semetary and Bag of Bones, but I like all of them.

I've got most of Dean Koontz's book waiting to be read I like Fear Nothing, Seize the Night and Phantoms the best so far.

I read a lot of Sci-fi one of my favorite authors is Alan Dean Foster some of his books are funnier than heck, my favorite has to be Jed the Dead, Cat*A*Lyst, Quozl, Glory Lane and The Damned series. Although I think The Damned series gives a lot of credit to the imagination what aliens might really want to do with the aliens known as humans.

I also read the magazines for their articles. wink.gif

I indulge my geeky side by reading some computer manuals.
