This is what you need to know:

Finding Customer Communities and Fora
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/forums/ref=cm_cd_search_res_ti?ie=UTF8&cdMsgNo=3&cdPage=1&cdSort=oldest&cdThread=Tx3IB922AXR6F66&cdMsgID=Mx211WTN6SD2TY5#Mx211WTN6SD2TY5
Try "Urban Fantasy Forum" or "Fantasy Forum". They'll probably be more specific than the general "Kindle forum".

How to search the fora http://www.amazon.com/forum/romance/ref=cm_cd_search_res_ti?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=FxM42D5QN2YZ1D&cdMsgNo=1&cdPage=1&cdSort=oldest&cdThread=Tx1BIZE3T7HMSL2&cdMsgID=Mx1OZAXQ6DH79U1#Mx1OZAXQ6DH79U1

Stick in a search for "Sandman Slim" and you can find "Sandman Slim: A Novel Forum" http://www.amazon.com/Sandman-Slim-Novel-Richard-Kadrey/forum/Fx28OQ8NIUET26D/-/1?_encoding=UTF8&cdItems=25&asin=0061714305&store=generic

"A Lawson Vampire Novel" search tells you it's been rec'd in the Vampire forum in the thread "Vampire Books on Kindle"
http://www.amazon.com/forum/vampire/ref=cm_cd_search_res_ti?_encoding=UTF8&cdMsgNo=12&cdPage=1&cdSort=oldest&cdThread=Tx1U5PPV46IMDZL&cdMsgID=Mx1SC3LWH652IXC#Mx1SC3LWH652IXC

These things will get you to people with the similar interests with whom you can discuss the books, and get better recs. If you find personalities in there who seem to like the same sort of things you do, check their profiles and have a look at their reviews, and possibly lists or tags.

How about the Dresden Files? Or Tales from the Nightside? Those are both good.

I'm John taylor, my name is john taylor, they know me by John Taylor, have I mentioned I'm John Taylor?

My sons and I had total running jokes about that, although we like the Nightside books

Lol, that's pretty funny actually. They were pretty fun books all in all. Green has a new series, only two books in (that I know of), the latest called "A Ghost of a Chance" ...very good as well...and of course, there is the Deathstalker series, but I feel that one went a few books too many.

I have a memory of a Sci-Fi movie that terrified me as a 7 year old, where the aliens were shaped like light bulbs and they stuck pointed appendages into the humans to... kill them? Classic dusty roads with cacti, like in so many Arizona locals of the genre. Does anyone have a clue what this is called? It came from outer space has a similar alien, but they don't "stick" the humans. Thanks!

I love the Dresden Files books. It's a shame they couldn't make the TV series stick.

Peter Faden says:
Yeah. I think the casting was a big part of that. Although I liked the cast, they didnt quite match the character descriptions in the books. What it really needed was a non sci-fi network production ultimately. If it had been on Fox, it would've probably had a run like Lost did...only, with a story line that was already established instead of the on the fly writing used in Lost, lol (I'm done slamming Lost now though.)....

What year? There was Killer Klowns from Outer Space, where they used crazy straws to suck the blood out of people.

I'm sorry, it's from the 50's, I saw it in about 1967.

Sounds like Invasion of the Saucer Men. If it terrified you at age 7...don't expect it to hold up!

They changed too many things from the books to make it work as well. I remember seeing it and being so disappointed in the hackjob, I could not even finish the one season that was available.

I watched it recently on Netflix after turning away from it while it was on tv years ago. A little separation from the last time i read a Dresden book helped me to enjoy it. It certainly isnt like the books at all, except for the fact that Harry always gets battered in each episode, lol. Still, not bad as a retrospective of sorts, in a parallel universe of course.
