Re: Let's Talk About Horror Fiction

Amazon says that Bride of Frankenstein: Pandora's Bride is shipping, but the availability is "Usually ships within 1 to 3 months."

I don't what's up with these things and their delays. But it's available from some sellers now, so it seems more likely that it's shipped.

Right now, I'm reading Summer of Night by Dan Simmons, and it's excellent, so far. I bought it because I had picked up A Winter Haunting, only to find out that it's kind of a sequel to Summer of Night.

I'm glad I did. There are some strong horror elements here and there, but Simmons is very successful at capturing some essence of boyhood in 11-year-old protagonists.

From what I've read, A Winter Haunting picks up 30-40 years later with at least some of the same characters.
