    Good story, but imagine if you'd been reading The Night Flier instead...
    When I first read The Night Flier envisioned that same airport.

    bears have been reading tons of Russian horrors

    didn't even know such a genre existed. It sure hadn't before ten or fifteen years ago, except some classics (like Gogol) and elements of horror in regular novels of various authors. Well, the genre exists and, quite unexpectedly, prospers. There are authors who write genuinely creepy, scary, sometimes incredibly sick things - that don't read like anything I've read before; I mean, it's not imitation of anything already existing in the world (which I feared for some reason), but mainly totally original approach, based on our lore, history, locale, folk tales and urban legends etc. Bears are very impressed and only regret can't share none of it here.

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (pablo)

    I still had some honor. I still have some now.

    To all bearfriends: please read this and/or watch this

    Thought #1: You haven't read it yet?!

    Thought #2: Oh yeah, it'll destroy you.
    1. I saw the movie so much growing up that it took away any interest I had in reading the book because I felt like I already knew the story.
    2. I know, right?
    I still have a feeling I'm gonna give in one day and read it.

    Ooh, talk about setting the right "tone" for the book.

    That is cool, John! I re-read The Stand (Uncut) while on sentry duty in the military on night shift. This was about time that Grunge music had hit the airwaves and I had it playing softly in the background while I read. So every time I hear a song from that time period, it takes me back to those long nights spent with Stu and the gang. And of course the Walking Dude.
    Awesome! I love it when music has the ability to take me back to a specific book/story. It's pretty neat how, no matter how many years pass, you can't not think of that story when you hear a certain song.
