I was tagged by a wonder group of Constant readers ( @peter_ruys @bookstagramsteve @kryptickollector ) for “TBR questions”, this is a fun one! Thanks for the tag fellas!! .
.
-Been there the longest : Hands down that goes to Larry McMurtry’s magnum opus western “Lonesome Dove” I’ve had this thing on my shelf for almost ten years.Its survived many moves and shelf purges and it’s one of the few non-horror/Sci-fi titles I currently own.I’ve heard nothing but good things about it and I’m sure that one day in the distant future I’ll read it (ten years from now?)probably not though 😂
.
-Afraid to start : I like long books (I’m a King/Simmons fan for fuck sake) and by no means do I have commitment issues but I’ve been putting off reading “The Stand” by Stephen king for a really long time now.In a previous post I committed to reading it this summer and I plan to hold myself to it.
.
-Need to finish : I chose “the Dark Tower” series.Last year I read the first three volumes in a matter of two weeks.I decided to take a short “Tower hiatus” before starting “Wizard and Glass” because I heard it was pretty dense and that the majority of the book is a flash back story so I wanted to continue with a fresh set of eyes and a renewed interest in the series, then I started reading reviews.It seems that the dark tower fan base is pretty split with this volume, either it’s their favorite or they thought it dragged too much and took them away from the story they’ve already invested themselves in.I will DEFINITELY draw my own conclusions on it, it’s the Dark fucking tower and I’m a Stephen king fan come on!!!! *NYC cab driver voice*
.
-Bought because of someone : “Anno Dracula” by Mr. Kim Newman.A friend of mine, a non Instagram user (Scott) spoke very highly of it and I managed to get a really clean copy at a thrift store.This book seems non existent on “bookstagram” which is kind of odd because the premise sounds amazing!
.
-Last Bought : “A winter haunting” by Dan Simmons, book three of the “seasons of horror” series.I’m dying to read it!!!
.
-Need to read asap : "Little Heaven” by Nick Cutter.I absolutely loved “The Troop” and “the Deep”.

Una dichiarazione d'amore per la letteratura/epoca vittoriana e il cinema horror: #annodracula è pieno di citazioni e riferimenti che ogni appassionato di vampiri apprezzerà. La storia è ambientata (ovviamente) nell'Inghilterra vittoriana e parte dal finale alternativo del romanzo di #dracula : il vampiro ha sconfitto Van Helsing, sposato la regina Vittoria e diffuso il vampirismo in tutta Europa. Bellissimo romanzo, ambientazione curatissima anche se il ritmo a volte sembra un pochino lento. Finale sorprendente. #bookadvisor #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookphotography #booklover #vampires #victorian #gothic #gothicnovel #blue #kimnewman #vampiri #hips #belly #summer

This was simply my bible as a horror loving teen. Kim Newman's 'Nightmare Movies' 1987, which like it says on the tin is a critical history of the horror movie from 1967 to roughly the mid eighties. Newman is an engaging and perceptive writer and the scope of his research is exhaustive. He covers genres and a few auteurs in individual chapters but what I most loved was his introduction of new subgenres such as the weirdo horror film (John Waters, Russ Meyer et al) and the postmodern horrors of Travis Bickle and Colonel Kurtz #nightmaremovies #kimnewman #predator #horrorbook #horror #horrormovies #horrornerd #horrorgram #books #bookstagram #author #critic #literary #writer

Throwback Thursday! This is a piece I did for Empire magazine's "Kim Newman's Video Dungeon" column a few years back. It was printed in the magazine a few times. -----

Updated: It is a great relief to find that this is still the great story I remember.
It definitely gets a half point for nostalgia and Another half point from being from the Old World pre Age of Sigmar - giving a a total scare of 9/10.
Taking a wee break from crime and delving into a classic bit of Warhammer from the bookshelf.
From the printing date inside, I have had this for 25 years and did not it was re-released again recently by Black Library.
I do recollect this as a Warhammer version of The Count if Monte Cristo, with some very interesting characters.
I’m sure it will live up its memory.

Day 3 of the #meowvellousbookchallenge hosted by @thecosyreader ans @spoopyhol is ‘Character with a comeback’. I did think about posting Kim Kardashian biography, but opted instead for ‘Anno Dracula’ by Kim Newman, a superb and brilliantly imagined sequel to Dracula. #horror #annodracula #kimnewman #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #books #amreading #booklover #bookworm #instabooks #booklove #bibliophile #instabook #bookgeek #booknerd #bookabookloversddict #igreads

Petite lecture sympa: l'antithèse de Sherlock Holmes... Les mêmes aventures réécritent du côté obscur de la force. Moriarty la face noire de Sherlock.. On y retrouve même ces pirouettes scenaristiques si agaçantes chez Conan Doyle mais qui permettent de résoudre des énigmes mal parties de façon fort commodes. Comme Sherlock, Moriarty est aidé d'un ancien militaire de l'armée des Indes qui sert également de narrateur et qui tout comme le colonel Watson est souvent dépassé par les événements suscités par son maître.
Pas un chef d'oeuvre mais une lecture de vacances, vite lu, vite oublié
