    Does TDT.org have an extreme horror expert?
    Maybe what was referred to "splatter punk" in the oldie times.
    I have never read any but curious about titles like Off Season, Cows, Survivor, Header.

    Are Ketchum, Keene, and Lansdale considered part of this genre?

    Thx

    I'm currently reading/listening to Natchez Burning, by Greg Iles. It's part of his Penn Cage series of novels, about a Southern lawyer-turned-novelist-turned-amateur detective, of sorts. This is the fourth in the series, the longest so far, and is the first volume of a trilogy-within-a-series.

    It's a pretty easy read, but is a bit on the draggy side. Lots of flashbacks from "present day" to the 80s and 60s in Mississippi, Louisiana and (briefly) Texas, and is pretty fascinating. Lots of commentary about race relations, but it doesn't do so gratuitously - it always relates to the central plot - and it never gets preachy. I will likely read the next two books later this year after a palate-cleaner of something else.

    I like Greg Iles a lot. Having grown up in Mississippi, it really hits home with me. The Quiet Game is an excellent read also, Peter if you haven't gotten to that one yet.

    I picked up a couple of Norman Prentiss collections when they were free on Amazon. I'm reading the first of them:

    This was fantastic. Most of the stories aren't quite as dense and moody as his previous works but I don't think the reviews saying this is YA are correct either. If you haven't read any Tem (where the F have you been all this time?), this could be a gateway to an immense body of his work.

    Brian, I have read that one - it's the first one in the series. I should have mentioned I've been slowly making my way through them, in order, over the past couple of years. They are solid reads - and good to hear that a Mississippi native thinks so as well! Natchez Burning has picked up the pace. Will definitely be reading the next two (The Bone Tree, and Mississippi Blood) later this year.

    I'll then tackle some of his non-Penn Cage novels, to see how they fare.

    I believe Cage also makes a few appearances in this earlier novels. Although the novels aren't centered around him.

    Currently rereading Different Seasons. I guess it's been 30+ years since I last read it so it almost counts as a new read.

    I liked THE SISTERS BROTHERS, but that's a movie. So far, BROTHER is interesting.

    Just finished Voices in the Snow by Darcy Coates. The first book in her Black Winter series. I really enjoyed it. It went in a direction that I wasn't initially expecting, but I am excited to read the rest. I just have to wait a few months now for the next one to come out.

    T.E.D. Klein - The Ceremonies. I actually had to make finishing this book a New Year's resolution. There's just so much detail in every. single. thing. everyone does. Buddy just showered for a page and a half in font size -2. I should've just read the original novella.

    I read the first two books and gave up. I got tired of how cliched and predictable they were. It's what sold millions of books for him, he's like a James Patterson of fantasy.

    I like his shorter works a lot more because he takes more chances and it actually feels like he wanted to write them.

    Long story short, take ASoFaI and dumb it waaaay down. And it's still worse than that.

    I had no idea this beauty was even a thing and now I'm rushing to Amazon to order it! Nausicaa is my favorite Miyazaki film but I didn't know he also wrote the source material, I always assumed it was an original, which I guess it still is. But the movie officially being in our 1980s movie tournament made me go back and revisit Nausicaa, and now I cannot wait to delve into this stunning boxed set:

    If only money grew on trees. (I'd still have to wait until Spring, d'oh!). I'll probably get that too but I'm slowly working on completing the Junji Ito collection and the Berserk deluxe hardcovers. Plus Druilett, plus Jodorowsky always has something new (or a more superior edition of an older work) coming out. These Grant Morrison Batman omnibus editions are killing me too etc etc etc

    Finished A Head Full Of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay. Good stuff. My second book by him and he is an easy read. Fast paced and keeps you interested in the characters he creates. Great endings. Looking forward to the movie of this. Started a reread of On Writing. A short way into it and I remember why it is one of my favorites by SK. After it I will be reading a third Tremblay book.
