You don't have to apologize for getting Haunted. The fact that you're even attracted to a book like at at all only makes me love you more! A couple of the short stories in there are absolutely brilliant as standalones. I still don't feel the book worked as a whole...but that's something we can talk about when you're done. I hope you enjoy it.
So glad you got Invisible Monsters! I always pictured that as being a wonderful film in the hands of the right, very brave and twisted director. Again, it's one of my favorites. I love the "postcards to the future" part. Have fun reading!
