Horror Diary 2008 Part Two

A Listmania! list by Phantom Matt "real-life ghost" (Yorkshire)
 
November Mourns (Bantam Spectra)
1.  November Mourns (Bantam Spectra) by Tom Piccirilli
The list author says:
  "4.5 out of 5 - another great work from Pic, this is the tale of a guy fresh out of jail, attempting to find the truth behind his sister's death - the moonshine flows in a bizarre smalltown."
4.79   Used & New from: 0.01

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
2.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (118 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

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: 0.01

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."
7.03   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!"
8.42   Used & New from: 0.82
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"!!!"
7.69   Used & New from: 0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (60 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions
