I haven't read too much horror lately.  I recently started reading a sci-fi series The Horus Heresy which is part of the Warhammer 40,0000 Universe.  I'm reading the latest book in ther series called "Legion" written by Dan Abnett.

Well,

As usual, I tend to be reading a few books, and, just as usual, tend to take forver to get through all of them. Currently, my attention has been going to A new collection of H.P. Lovecraft Tales titled, "Necronomicon." Normally, im not a big fan of illustrated Lovecraft collections, but the illustrations are rather impressive (forgive me for not remembering the artists name).

Ive been meaning to finish William Hope Hodgeson's "The Night Land". For this with an interest in the Epic and Bizarre, you wont be dissapointed with the subjects here. It tends to be a rather winded read, though (consider pre-Poe era prose style).

Richard Matheson's short stories in I AM LEGEND and submissoins for Tabloid Purposes V.   I will go back and read the fourth anthology after I've published it and damn the stories still scare the s**t out of me.  Right now I've been busy writing my own short stories and novellas these days so all I have time to read are short story collections and other anthologies.  The anthology I've been reading off and on is New England Ghosts and Coach's Midnight Diner (re-reading The Diner.  I read this cover to cover when I first got the book and the editor sent me the complete e-book as kill some time.)  
         I read many of the anthologies I appear in too and a lot of small press anthologies too.   If you want a good anthology check out Darkened Horizons: Issue 3.

Alas, I'm not really into anything at the moment. I started reading House by Frank Peretti and some other guy, but have only been able to force myself to read 2 chapters so far. I need to start reading from The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror from 2001 tomorrow.

Unfortunately I have not the time to read much, too busy writing.  Though I am reading when I can: Dean Koontz's The Good Guy.  Just picked up Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game since a friend recommended it.  Also just bought Lincoln Child's Deep Storm

It is kind of silly but I have always been fascinated with Roman times and Cleopatra so now I'm reading Anotony and Cleopatra

Most of my reading seems to be research at the moment, none really horror:

Arbatel De magia veterum (Arbatel: Of the Magic of the Ancients)

Clavicula Salomonis  (The Key of Knowledge) a sixteenth century English translation of the Key of Solomon

Ars Notoria: The Notory Art of Solomon

The Sworne Booke of Honorius (Liber Juratus)

 For lighter reading, I was directed to a website, reputedly of the entire collection of works by H P Lovecraft which I can recommend as a for-free source, and for anyone happy to read on computer screen. 

 Other than these, a long term project - Dante’s Divine Comedy which has taken twenty years so far, and still only managed to get a third of the way through it.

I did begin reading The Glory Bus by Richard Layman.  I got over half way through and it got so predictable I gave up reading it.  I may go back to it one day when I am bored just to see how right I was, but right now I can't be doing with it, I hate predictable!

Just started Fishy Fleshed by Carlton Mellick III

If you haven't read his stuff yet, check him out. He's the most entertaining author in Bizzaro today. I've read almost a dozen of his books and every single one is awesome. That's rare.

Just finished Roland Topor's "The Tenant". I recommend this book to anyone with eyes. It also has a great introduction by Thomas Ligotti. Segue into "The Shadow At The Bottom of The World" by Ligotti. He is truly a genius when it comes to the craft. Fans of Lovecraft will surely find enjoyment in his tales.

I kind of want to get my hands on the Satanic Verses.  Call it an unhealthy grippage of curiousity if you want.  Anyway, finished my Lovecraft stuff and reading a collection of American Literature since 1870.
