10691 Mon January 11 2010 - 13:41:54 Fullname: Randy Email: Comments: I like some of the Reacher novels but I didn't appreciate the author's anti-Iraq War Code Pink propaganda in one of his newer books. Given the way things have turned out and given the fact that Iraqi oil might eventually boost the US economy, I wonder if the anti-war Brit feels a little foolish. Probably not.
But enough politics. I have another story online at DEADLINES -- this one is a reprint of "The Seventh Demon" which was part of the HELP anthology fund-raiser for Preditors & Editors (tho I never saw a copy and have no idea if anyone ever read it). It's here: http://deadlineszine.com/CurrentIssue.aspx

Now I'm reading Killing Floor. That's a real nasty first novel. Then I'll be reading some more Greg Gifune. Already loved that book, "Saying Uncle" by him.
10689 Wed January 06 2010 - 12:57:33 Fullname: Randy Email: Comments: Just out in paperback is a kick-booty book that has to be the mother of all techno-thrillers. It's DAEMON by Daniel Suarez and it's a video gamer's epic wet dream. But it gets even better: the sequel is out this month and word is, it goes in unexpected directions. Nutshell plot: A dead software/game designer genius dies and a daemon program kicks in and begins to wreak havoc on the whole world, essentially turning the entire world into a deadly video game. But to what end? heh heh heh...Read it and see.

10680 Sat December 19 2009 - 05:54:30 Fullname: Darkomik77 Email: Comments: Provided they do better than the other stupid remakes of Carpenter's other earlier films: The Fog and Assault On Precinct 13. And speaking of Carpenter ilk, let's take our hats off to the sad departure of Dan O'Bannon. He's the guy who worked with Carpenter on Dark Star. He scripted and co-scripted several film projects, most of them memorable: Alien, Aliens, Dead & Buried, Blue Thunder, and others. He wrote and directed Return Of the Living Dead, and directed The Resurrected. He will be missed.

10678 Tue December 15 2009 - 06:30:09 Fullname: Darkomik77 Email: Comments: Not to mention the anti-science crowd. As much as I'd like talking "paranormal" but let's get serious. As for global warming, I'm sure there's one but not too sure of man's contribution to it though. Don't worry, Randy. Ain't gettin' you started on that. ;) I take it shocklines lighting up like a yuletide log gone awry with the fire? Oh and BTW, got a few more DVDs from Blockbuster going out of business locally. All for 3.99 a pop. Got me Prince Of Darkness, The Dark (not the 1970s version), The Devil's Chair, Wicked Little Things, 13 Seconds, Dark Floor, and The Boogeyman & Return of The Boogeyman double feature DVD from the 1980s long before this recent Boogeyman showed up. It's a lotta movies to watch over the holidays.

10675 Sat December 12 2009 - 08:46:02 Fullname: Darkomik77 Email: Comments: Yep, Nanci. We do miss ya. We kinda figured you didn't stick around too long 'cuz of the stench in this shithouse of horror. I thought I'd hang a christmas tree shaped ornament that emits the smell of pine. Well, didn't seem to be working too well. Go figure. :/

10673 Thu December 03 2009 - 12:51:17 Fullname: Randy Email: Comments: I saw a good British horror flick: EDEN LAKE. Tense and bloody. Teenagers torment a couple (man and woman) of campers. Puts you through the wringer and then slaps you down at the end.
10672 Thu December 03 2009 - 05:45:19 Fullname: Darkomik77 Email: Comments: I finally bought myself all six DVDs of the BERSERK series. It's a fantasy that turns very dark near the end. It kinda reminds me of Moorcock's Elric series without the demon sword that is. I've yet to finish this by watching disc 5 and 6. Just bought those two last night from Blockbuster that's closing shop locally. They cost four bucks a pop. Too good to pass up.
