    Black House is infused with raw terror combined with the talent of two of the greatest story tellers ever.

    This one was tough for me. In every such situation I ask myself which one of these I'd take to a deserted island.

    then it has to be The Stand. It is twice as long... and of course, it is written in the past tense (important for bears)

    still haven't voted

    ETA: sorry, I thought I was posting in that other thread, The Stand vs. BH.

    Deserted island, and I only get one book.....Lord of the Flies....or maybe, given the circumstances, Mysterious Island.

    Ohhhhh wait.....it would definitely be a long and detailed survival guide.
