I'll look into it -- the only Bradbury I've ever read, besides short stories, was that one and Farenheit 451. I do think you'll like "Something Wicked This Way Comes." I ought to reread it myself, it's been years.Originally Posted by geek the girl;2260615;
I just finished "Shadowlands," and while it was creepy, I did not love it the way I loved "Ghost Story." I'll still try some of his others, though.Yay, a Straub fan! I'll let you know how I like Hellfire Club as soon as I've finished it. I'm relatively new to Peter Straub: so far, I've only read Ghost Story and Lost Boy Lost Girl as well as his collaborations with Stephen King. I've loved everything I've read, though, so I imagine I'll end up reading all of his work eventually. I'll definitely check out the trilogy you mentioned.
Adult short stories? I didn't know Roald Dahl even wrote adult ones. I used to read all his children's books, I loved them. Although looking back, I can see how they were just a few steps away from out-and-out horror books.Has anyone read Roald Dahl's short stories, by the way? Many of them are decidedly horror. Very creepy and atmospheric. My favourite story is probably "The Landlady". It actually inspired me to write a short story of my own, a continuation of sorts, back in high school.
