"Zodiac" by Robert Graysmith.

…David McAninch’s Duck Season, and I’m now on to a book I should’ve read a decade ago, back when I was writing The Roberts: Robert Graysmith’s Zodiac.

Might have to read Susan Kelly’s The Boston Stranglers next,


"Duck Season" by David McAninch.

The Haunting of Hill House quite awhile ago, and am now in the middle of David McAninch’s Duck Season.

Some classic serial killer literature is next,


Fear: Trump in the White House, which was just as scary as you’d assume.

Now, I’m finishing out 2018 with Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.

Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House."

From terrifying fact to terrifying fiction,


out of my system, and am now a hundred pages into this nightmarish tale.

Oh, fuck.

We’re all doomed,


Dracula a bit ago, then started Gerina Dunwich’s The Pagan Book of Halloween.

"The Pagan Book of Halloween" by Gerina Dunwich.

It’s taken me awhile to read this one. Specifically, about 18 years.

Thanks for the Christmas gift from nearly two decades ago, Beth!

Next up, Bob Woodward’s take on Trump!

Halloween is officially over,


I've come to suck your... oh, it's too easy.

the Creature, on to the vampire.

Not sure what’s next,


It's a monster of a book! Get it?!? Get it?!?

Thurber, and am now on to a book I was supposed to read in high school… but somehow managed to avoid altogether: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Sorry, Mr. Leibold,


"A Dreadful Fairy Book" by Jon Etter.

James Thurber to read a galley of our good friend Jon Etter’s upcoming middle-grade book A Dreadful Fairy Book.

More on Jon’s amazing book in the very near future, but for now… it’s time to finally wrap up The Thurber Carnival.

Two horror classics coming up next,


"Pass The Sugar" by Joe Hachem.

…from James Thurber to read Pass The Sugar, the autobiography of 2005 World Series of Poker champion Joe Hachem.

Trying to up my game,


a couple of Mamet stage plays, I’m on to James Thurber.

We lived in the same hood.

Biting… and still just as relevant,


Old Poop!
