Remember that car that passed you near midnight on Route 66, doing 105 with its lights off? You wondered where it was going so quickly on that dark, dusty stretch of road, motor roaring, the driver glancing out the window as he blew by. You just saw the founder of the Suicide Motor Club. Be grateful his brake lights never flashed. Be grateful his car was already full.

This was a pretty good story. I could listen to Luther all day. Great performance! Can't believe I'm just finding out about the author, but already started on a 2nd Buehlman book.

Some of the parchment pages were the color of cream, thick and substantial, made to last many, many lifetimes. Other pages were thin and desiccated, positively yellow from age, and crackled alarmingly as Van Richten turned them over. There were no ornate illuminations, no fussy borders, only lines of plain text in hard black ink. The flowing handwriting was a bit difficult to follow at first; the writer's style of calligraphy had not been in common use for 300 years. No table of contents, but from the dates it looked to be some kind of history.

Where does Ghoul rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not a bad read. The storyline of the kids in this book held my interest. It captured the joys and horrors of what some kids must suffer through. And yes, not all monsters are fictitious beasts - but real people.

Which character – as performed by Wayne June – was your favorite?

June did a great job with the 'Ghoul' character!!

Who was the most memorable character of Ghoul and why?

Of course the main character, 'Timmy', was the most memorable - a brave kid. The story brought back memories of my own childhood.

It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf. Sylvester James knows what it is to be haunted. His mother died giving birth to him and his father never let him forget it; until the night he was butchered by a werewolf - the night a full moon ruined his life.

What did you love best about Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter?

A pretty good werewolf story. Good enough for me to purchase the sequel. Might have been a bit better if the author cut it a bit short. Was a bit lengthy and dry in parts but overall, I liked it. Glad to have found a new horror author!!

It is called Crota...and it has awakened. Sheriff Skip Harding is called out to investigate a double homicide unlike any he has seen before. The bodies have been torn to pieces in the woods. Some think it's a bear. But others whisper something different. "It is the Crota," they say, - the great beast of Native American legend that one day will reawaken. Now that day has arrived.

Just After Sunset - call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.

Okay, I admit I didn't finish this one. It was too grueling. I'll try again later but a book that shows how King has lost his touch as compared to his earlier writings.

Obadiah Grudge is tall, dark, and gaunt, though he prefers the word rich. He dresses well and has a taste for the finer things, so its a good thing that the mysteries he writes consistently hit the top of the best seller lists. The critics hate him; his public loves him. He has everything he wants. Then one day he gets a call. His estranged father is dead. Obadiah has inherited his father's monster-killing business, his lunatic of a partner, and his pet Raven. It's too bad he didnt inherit his father's skill.

This story would have been better if the main character hadn't been portrayed as such an arrogant wimp. I know, I've never come across such a character before but this one was extremely annoying.

The army had said it was a training accident. But why had the coffin they sent home been sealed? So on a dark night, in a deserted field, Tom begins to unearth the mass grave where he hopes—and fears—that he will find his son's remains. He finds instead madness: corpses in chains and dead bodies that still move and grasp and clutch. And one little girl, dead and rotting, who promises to help Tom find what he's looking for, if only he will free her.

This started book started a little slow. It turned out okay but very frustrating at times due to the major character asking the same questions (same doubts) throughout the story. He seemed a bit slow! He would see 'proof' that the girl 'moved' but even by the end of the story kept pondering 'did I see her move? She couldn't have moved' and on and on and on.
