Stumbled across your blog today - Bram Stoker's birthday. I've just shared it with a bunch of folks. Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this.

Wow, that's cool - you're welcome and thank you!

Impeccable recommendations. Thanks to you I found Search for Joseph Tully and Son of Endless Night last year and loved them both. Both are just so...odd yet memorable. I like Ellroy's older stuff like Clandestine and Killer on the Road. My top faves of his can be found in a cheap compilation called L.A. Noir. Blood on the Moon, was made into a rather bad movie "Cop" with James Woods.

Just wanted to add my two-cents. You've done a remarkable job with your website. It's an invaluable resource that I use frequently when I need guidance with what to read next. Thanks very much for the hard work and passion you bring to the cause.

Hey, just wanted to say somewhere that this is a great blog. I love reading about horror books almost as much as I love reading horror books. There's a vast amount of information and opinion here and
and I'm gonna enjoy rambling through it. I tried to do my own sort of horror blog, but this one is much much better. Thanks for the horrors!!
