Re: Hallowe'en Reading and Viewing, 2008!

^^ Did you watch Mad Monster Party yet?

It's definitely time to start with the Halloween reading. The skies are gloomy, the wind is chill and brisk and the orange leaves are blowing around. I got out my Halloween Reader to have on hand.

Right now I'm reading the Kolchak novel novel A Black And Evil Truth, and, sadly, I'm disappointed so far. The short stories in the two anthologies are pretty good, so I was expecting something on that level. This reads like a first draft, or something written by a teenager. There are typos and grammatical errors on just about every page. There are even obvious inconsistencies; on one page there are unidentifiable tracks, on the very next page there are no tracks and the page after that unknown tracks again-- and two chapters later, there is "no forensic evidence." I'd recommend the two anthologies, but I can't recommend this; and I'm only up to chapter five or so.

In the next couple of days I will dig through my stuff and decide on my list of Halloween reading.
Please stop by my Gallery and YouTube Page for a visit. And read Trunkards! And check out my Heroes essays.
