Lisey's Story
2.  Lisey's Story by Stephen King
The list author says:
  "2 out of 5 - this seems like a very personal and heartfelt work from King - nothing wrong with that, as long as the reader can get involved too - but this stodgy, over-written mess fails on that score"
Used & New from: £0.01

Deceased
3.  Deceased by Tom Piccirilli
The list author says:
  "3 out of 5 - absolutely demented, grand guignol haunted house story - Pic hadn't developed the smooth writing style at this point, but decapitations, incest and a turtle (!) maintain twisted interest"
Used & New from: £0.64

The Unblemished
4.  The Unblemished by Conrad Williams
The list author says:
  "4 out of 5 - an ancient race of cannibals attempt to reclaim their rightful place in the food chain - great story, plenty of gore but poetically written."
£7.99   Used & New from: £0.01
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

The Queen of Bedlam
5.  The Queen of Bedlam by Robert R. McCammon
The list author says:
  "4 out of 5 - historical whodunnit, set in 18thCentury New York. A decent follow-up to the superb Speaks the Nightbird, but suffers from being a tad too labyrinthine - difficult memorising who's who!"
£11.42   Used & New from: £1.71
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

The Terror
6.  The Terror by Dan Simmons
The list author says:
  "And finally, my Book of 2008. Sarah Langan's "Virus" and Adam Nevills "Banquet for the Damned" get special mentions, but the winner is...Dan Simmons "The Terror"!!!"
