    I haven't read Valis yet. The timing has to be right if I'm to do a deep dive on Dick's later works. If I'm exhausted from work and I'm not home alone, there's no use in even trying.

    I picked up Wounds, a short story collection by Nathan Ballingrud. Two stories in and I'm asking myself why did I wait this long to check him out.

    Also reading Gwendy's Magic Feather - quick read, should finish it in another sitting. So far I'm enjoying it, but I feel like it's length has been artificially padded with a relatively large font, large margins, and lots of unused space on the page. It's 330 ish pages, but feels like it could be half that if Cemetery Dance wasn't using all the tricks in the book to make it a physically larger offering.

    Currently reading Brother by Ania Ahlborn along with the anthology I mentioned a few posts back. I have to thank this board for introducing me to Ania as Brother is one hell of a ride so far.

    I think I'm going to start Brother next. I've only read The Shuddering, which I did enjoy, and have had this one for a couple months now. Plus everyone seems to love it, so I'm excited to start it.

    Your guys' enthusiasm for it really makes me wish I liked the story. I just fell completely flat for me.

    Quoting myself like a boss/loser (self-opinion that changes daily). This was great. Like, great great. The Butcher's Table was a perfect story to end a collection with, a high note worthy of a young Clive Barker, lyrical and drenched in hot blood.

    Finished Brother which I enjoyed and am really tempted to get the Suntup version. In keeping with Ania Ahlborn I started Seed.

    Started Duma Key. I read it when I smoked a SHIT ton of weed. I do not remember it AT ALL. So far loving it. There was a few books around that time I do not remember. Weed does that you know... lol I just finished Hill's Heart Shaped Box and hated it. His worst novel for me. Rosemary is going to be up after Duma!

    Dandelion or chickweed?
    I remember liking parts of DUMA KEY a lot and liking some parts not so much.

    Just started PICNIC ON PARADISE by Joanna Russ after finishing PAST MASTER by R.A. Lafferty. So far I disliked/dislike both of them. Oh well, can't win them all.

    Seed is weird but creepy. Slow but the last 1/3 of the book makes it all worth it.

    I couldn't find a thread when I searched for book recommendations so I thought I'd try here. I'm planning my reading for the future and I am currently planning on rereading Stephen King books I haven't read in awhile. I want to break it up with something in between King books. Does anyone have any good creature type horror books they recommend? I'm looking for something not vampires or werewolf type. I already have Periphery by Michael Winter and The Wide, Carnivorous Sky and Other Monstrous Geographies by John Langon in my list. Thanks in advance and I apologize if this is the wrong thread to ask this question.

    Oh, I loved White by Tim Lebbon. I'd also recommend The Silence by Tim as well. The Shuddering by Ania Ahlborn. And one of my all-time favorites Pines by Blake Crouch

    Last night finished "The Fireman" by some guy named Joe Hill and now starting in on "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell. (A good read this should be.)

    Finished Seed and I think I might like it a tad more than Brother. Those were my first Ania Ahlborn books and I'm very impressed so far...any recommendations on which of her books I should search out next? In the meantime, I started a reread of From A Buick 8 while still reading the anthology.
