In general the best around. I prefer weird fiction, horror, and experimental novels. Huge fan of Lovecraft and Mark Z Danielewski.

Trying to get a group of people to read this gem in October not an official book club or anything but there will be some mid and end book discussions. Join us...

ctboeheim Terrific book. I read it about once a year. 6d

All the Pretty Horses | Cormac McCarthy

Smrloomis Years ago I planned to read this trilogy but when I read this first one I just couldn‘t get past how bleak it was! 6d
Dyslexicon13 @Smrloomis I love bleak. I‘m almost through with The Crossing and it is a bit more bleak than All The Pretty Horses. 6d
Smrloomis @Dyslexicon13 I see - then you are the perfect reader for this. I‘ve only read this and the Road and that was it for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6d

I have no problem with audiobooks. I listen to a lot of Horrorbabble on YouTube but I don‘t consider it reading. It has introduced me to new authors and some classic horror I had no idea existed but I won‘t mark what I‘ve listened to as a book I have read. Thoughts? Opinions? #audiobooks #audible

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego For myself I used to consider it cheating. But then some Littens made an important point that changed my mind. Being that there are people who can't read in a traditional sense and use audio, and their reading should be (and is) considered valid. I use audio now, mostly rereads and memoirs tho, as I find I don't pay as much attention when I listen vs read. 3w
Dyslexicon13 @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I love books regardless and am happy that people experience them however they need or choose to. For me audio is a fun way to experience a story in the car or when I‘m cooking but it doesn‘t give me the same sense on satisfaction that reading provides. 2w

Vacation ending sucks but coming home to this gem made it a lot easier. This is from Easton Press the complete fiction of H P Lovecraft leather bound, gilded pages, 22 karat gold inlay. This is an incredible edition and stands as the crown jewel of my Lovecraft collection. #lovecraft #eastonpress #booknerd

On vacation at the Great Wolf Lodge. I‘m still making time to read. #noexcuses

Smrloomis I was surprised to find I loved this. Thoughts? (edited) 6d
Dyslexicon13 @Smrloomis I had heard it was good but didn‘t expect it to be as good as it was. I was blown away by it. 6d
Smrloomis Agreed 👍🏽 6d

I can‘t believe it took me so long to get around to reading this. There is a reason this book has withstood the test of time. I‘m not going to say it is perfect there were a few dry bits that went on a little too long, mainly the chase towards the end, but as a whole this was a fantastic read.

Happy Birthday to Howard Phillips Lovecraft 8-20-1890 to 3-15-1937. Your works changed my life and play a huge part in my life with my kids #Lovecraft #cthulhu #birthday

I‘ve been slowly picking up the volumes of this complete #williamhopehodgson set. If #Lovecraft was the “father” of #cosmichorror then Hodgson was the grandfather of cosmic horror. Anyone into classic horror or seafaring horror should look into his work.

DrexEdit Interesting. I've not heard of this author before but I think I will check him out! 😊 4w

Oh the sin of writing such words, words which are clear as crystal limpid and musical as bubbling springs words which sparkle and glow like the poisoned diamonds of the Medicis! Oh the wickedness the hopeless damnation of a soul who could fascinate and paralyze human creatures with such words words understood by the ignorant and wise alike , words which are more precious than jewels more soothing than Heavenly music, more awful than death itself.

Of the seven short stories most were really awesome but a couple left a bit to be desired. Overall I recommend this book to any science fiction fans, philosophy fans, or fans of House of Leaves
