Clive Barker is awesome.
the post above this one is fantastic. I actually don't have the time to sit down and read and have become seriously hooked on audiobooks. Pop them in while I am driving somewhere or even to listen to at work while I am working on things.
Yes he is and I try to get atleast 2 books wvwery 2 months!
I'm a big fan of H.P Lovecraft and Chuck Palahniuk, although Chuck's books are pretty graphic and every now and then I have to put it down and it might take me a few days to get back into it. Haunted is by far the most graphic thing I've ever read, but still really good.
Thanks for the recommendation on Chuck, I will have to see if I can get my hands on some of his works.
stephen king is the shit. and if you've only watched the movies and havent read the books you missing out on alot. but thats the way it seems to go, the books are always better.
Clive barker is indeed awesome. I do read, but only if i get interested in it (i think most of why my generation dosn't read, is because they always pick the world's most boring books in school for us to read.) I mostly like Stephan king, but a few others have caught my attention (not all of them horror surprisingly).
Here's some of the Authors i like, feel free to check any of them out if you haven't already:
R.L. Stine <-- (man, you can't beat goosebumps! one of the first things that got me into horror)
There is more, but that would take about a year to type. :P
King is awesome, ans so is his son Joe Hill, among many others. I also have been hooked recently on the books on CD.
Great idea, and I listen all the time. Just listened to "The Woman In Th Room" by King on the way home tonight.
Edgar Allan Poe FTW!!
Bram Stoker (Dracula is my favorite book ever <3)
Poe is great. I have to be in the mood for that though. Sometimes, I don't want to think too much, lol. Especially after work.
Poe's work makes me think. With King it's laid out, cut and dry. Poe makes me work to get it sometimes, which is great....once in a while.
After work, I like to drink beer and dumb down. No dis-respect to King. He's just easier to read.
A ton of people have said that Stephen King's IT was way diff. in book form then the movie. How was it diff.? I haven't read the book yet but would like some details / insight.
