I've read The Rising
by Keene, which was a decent zombie book, and got Keene a Stoker Award. But the best thing about it was that it introduced me to Leisure Books' horror book club
, which I'm enjoying.
It's funny that you mention Robert McCammon. This October I re-read Halloween Horrors
, which is probably one of my favorite anthologies for that time of year, and McCammon's got my favorite story in it.
I decided to look up more of his stuff, and after many rave reviews, I picked up Boy's Life
(I can't get over that average on Amazon), Swan Song
and Speaks the Nightbird
I haven't read any of them yet (the list is getting ridiculous at this point), but I'm looking forward to it.
