The Strange Library

2.0 out of 5 stars The Strange Library makes the case for anti-depression medicine., July 28, 2015
This review is from: The Strange Library (Paperback)
This is a needlessly depressing story. I imagine he is challenging the notion because a character has valiantly withstood obstacles his life will turn out well afterwards. Algernon Blackwood's Jimbo might be the better choice. I will say the story is short and moves at a good clip.

I had been trying to find "On Jerusalem Street" for some time. Barker is one of my favorite writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Late-Night Film that Makes George W. Bush Look Cool!, June 6, 2015
I want to recommend this book on Facebook, but my friends and family might not like Japanese pink. Their loss, I say. This may be my favorite guilty pleasure film. With end of the world nuke fears renewed by recent Middle East politics, this could be our Dr. Strangelove , or not. Anyway, this film-maker made George W. Bush look cool and that is some accomplishment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barker is Back, February 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Clive Barker excels at novellas, The Hell Bound Heart and In the Flesh. I read this last night and as Teddy Roosevelt once said. "Good to the last drop;" Chinga Chiliad, Barker is back!

This is the case for dermatology or leotards. I actually tossed this dvd.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom, who is not a fan. I ended up getting her something more Christmassy. Unfortunately, it is a cold winter night and I am out of toliet paper. It either this or kleenex.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A great memoir. I like most of his movies and it was fun to read about how they were made. It occurred to me that Friedkin writes scenes for a living, s o the events he describes are extraordinarily clear. There are so many surprises: an actual devil-worshiping cult and not just goth kids trying to be spooky, the deeply disturbing goings on in a gay S&M club, the tantrums of pouting Al and the
insecurity of Gene. You will also discover what a complicated project a movie is. This is one of my favorite books.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mystic Mullah is Taut, Fast-Paced and Fun!, December 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Lester Dent said his job was to produce "sellable crap." These books are taut, fast-paced and fun. The Mystic Mullah is one of my favorites, especially, with Bantam's Bama cover illustraion.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Least Stuffy Classic I've Read, December 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am liking the book so far. I haven't finished it yet. Some of the foul language seemed more American inner city than Ancient China. It took me out the story a bit. Other than that I am glad I bought this translation. The book is fast-paced and entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars See this Before Taking Any, August 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This should be a companion piece to The Psychopath Test. Who doesn't know someone hooked for life and mentally impaired by these drugs.
