      Ditto, loved that part where you read of the gradual disintegration at different speeds of people as they 'turn'; it was quite sad and melancholy, but tied-in with the card games' playing quite well.

      Loved 'The Woman In Black'. Hope you enjoy it also - it's a very strong ghost story. I've seen the theatre production here in London twice now, and it's also scary, and made me jump (lots). I recently read another of Hill's novella's, 'The Small Hand'. That was very good too, and I definitely recommend it.

      The Passage gets better and better I found, but it's definitely quite the epic.

      That is so cool that you spoke with Adam Barker. I liked his characters and the setting was so unusual. I especially like when he told the story from the Rye/zombie point of view. Nobody ever tells the zombies side!

      RE: The Passage. I'm only a little ways in but I like it so far. One thing about kindles its sometimes hard to judge how lengthy a book is until you realize your "unread" portion isn't dwindling as quickly as usual. I think the fun is really about to start. The little girl is on her way to Colorado. I think it will really get fun when she is in proximity to the creature/cons.

      Anyway. Love your spooky reads. Ever hear of "The Woman In Black?" I've got that on pre-order. Usually from late summer through October I stick to horror/ghost books. I love that time of year.=o)

      Doh: I just realized I may have gotten The Woman in Black recommendation from your website.

      I read it earlier this year and loved it. I actually reviewed it on my web site here and interviewed Adam Baker here. It's a really enjoyable book isn't it just; kind of perfect mix of horror action with apt moments of reflection amidst the chaos.

      Now - what do you think of 'The Passage'?

      I LOVED Outpost! By far one of the best zombie stories I've read. I even found myself having "zombie dreams" it was so enthralling. =o) Ironically, thats high praise from me. I usually don't react to books with bad dreams.

      If you haven't read it you'll want to put on TBR pile, near the top.
