All the Time in the World

My taste in reading material is wide and varied: SF/fantasy/"speculative fiction", mysteries (police procedurals, mostly), history, fanfic, straight fiction, smutty vampire books, biographies, poetry, cereal boxes, assembly instructions, the fine print, and your mind.

Full Dark, No Stars

Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King Not nearly as good as his earlier volumes of short stories/novellas. In particular, "1922" was absolutely tedious, to the point that I didn't finish it and instead skipped on to "Big Driver." "1922" is pretty much just a spin on Poe's "The Tell-tale Heart", except that King takes something like 120 pages to do what Poe did in fewer than five. He was a much better writer when he was able (or willing) to produce stories that were succinct and left some things to our imaginations.
