One weird thing about The Ruins that I forgot to mention: It hasn't got any chapters. It's got little breaks here and there to indicate the passage of time, but no numbered chapters. I think that had something to do with how hard it seemed to put it down.
I'll have to remember that little trick.

A few weeks back, I posted this thread looking for werewolf books.
And I'll have to go through that when I have time; I love werewolf stories, but good ones are hard to find.

I'm looking forward to both, but I couldn't resist looking at the Wolf Man one to see how long before the beast shows up. I had to laugh, because the first sentence turned out to be "The autumn night was thick with clouds as the Wolf Man pushed on the half-open door." I think it might be next on my list. Since it sounds like most of the Universal monsters are in it, I'm hoping it'll make up for the lackluster ones from DH Press.
Ah, I'll need to track that one down as well. From a brief glimpse at the Amazon reviews, this is exactly what I was hoping the DH series would be like.

Simmons's Summer of Night (buy that one, dammit, RJD)
How can I say no? It will be in with my next order.
