    Ramsey Campbell: Ancient Images

    This one was a lot of fun. It had a definite Wicker Man vibe to it. I loved the creepy stick men that stalked the protag throughout the book. Also loved how she kept unconsciously dismissing them as shadows. Fave scene was when she had finally got to watch the film in the rundown theater...

    Greg Bear: Eon

    Very similar to Rendezvous with Rama in the setup. Huge celestial body, this time an asteroid, approaches Earth and it's hollow, all kinds of crazy stuff is on the inside. This one is pretty good but it left me with some gripes about it. Most of the time I couldn't get a clear picture in my...
