PLEASE NOTE: I'm rarely active here anymore, but please feel free to follow me on Goodreads, where I post regularly.


These are the chronicles of a book addict, a photo junkie, and an aspiring author, rewriting the very fabric of reality one page (and one snapshot) at a time. From the strange to the unusual; the abandoned to the abnormal; the haunted to the historic; the supernatural to the surreal; the forests of dark fantasy, the cemeteries of gothic horror, and the post-apocalyptic ruins of science fiction are the landscapes of my imagination.

Full Dark, No Stars

Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King King is at his best when he's darkly imaginative and unrelentingly cool. I grew up on the Twilight Zone/Tales From The Darkside kind of stories contained in the Night Shift and Skeleton Crew collections. He's gotten a bit more thoughtful over the years, and a little 'safer' at times, but this is a return to classic King.
