She Can Take the Dark Out of the Nighttime

Can't quite make out that artist's signature; anybody?

Never mind, it's Ken Barr! He also illustrated this cover, obviously inspired by "American Gothic" by Grant Wood.

Hi all great site indeed!! Just wondered if there is any place on here to ask questions, make suggestions etc seeing as I have just embarked on a seemingly obsessive quest to ferret
out old paperbacks...

Oh how I want that crone. The book, I mean.

Will Errickson said...

Hi Craig--you can leave comments/questions/suggestions just as you did here.

Craig Bryant said...

Ok thank you Will. My first foray into this new obsession started with finding a used copy of The festering which struck a chord having previously seen it here. Enjoyed it too! So far I have ordered Jaws 2, Jaws the revenge, Play misty for me, The nest, All heads turn when...and Wet work. Thanks to you I have a large list now. Have you covered The unborn at all? I am currently reading it.

Be sure to check out the Pages sidebar on the homepage where you can find my top reads/authors/artists/etc.

I have not featured THE UNBORN here--maybe the cover a few years ago? not sure--but my girlfriend read it and *hated* it! ;-) So I have not read it myself.

Ok thank you. Yes I can appreciate why your girfriend would hate it, I can't even discuss it with my wife because of some of the subject matter as we lost a baby a couple of years back....anyway I was also thinking of doing a Youtube video showing the start of my collection as there are too few on there. Would it be presumptuous to possibly post a link here maybe??

Send me the link via email (contact info on right sidebar) and I can post it to my Facebook page for TMHF. Thanks!
