An omnibus of horror novels, three graphic novels, an oldie and a library book, the last just since I had the image. I’m not doing a very good job of catching up reading the inflow, but I guess that’s nothing new, is it? Here goes:
The Complete Drive-In by Joe R. Landsdale [Underland Press, 2009 trade paper, new] – horror – I’m not normally much of a horror reader, but this was too tempting to pass up. The omnibus contains three novels: The Drive-In: A B-Movie with Blood and Popcorn, The Drive-In: Not Just Another One of Them Sequels, and The Drive-In: The Bus Tour. The latter had been published previously only as a limited edition.
The Empire of A Thousand Planets by Mezieres & Christin [Cinebook 2008 oversized trade paper, new] – SF graphic novel, third in series – I have the others on order, but this is the one that arrived. Though the artwork and coloring are rough, it’s an interesting SFF-style tale. I saw a review over at Bookgasm on this one, thought I’d try it.
The Sarcophagi of the Sixth Continent Parts 1 & 2 by Sente & Juillard [Cinebook 2009 oversized trade paper, new] – mystery-supernatural-adventure – I’m continuing to buy these adventures of Blake and Mortimer as I’ve been enjoying them.
Tour de Force by Christina Brand [Carroll & Graf 1988 paperback, used] – mystery – I’ve seen the film of Brand’s Green For Danger but have not read any of her other novels. This was reviewed as a Friday Forgotten Book recently, so I thought I’d try it. I like that it has a blurb quote from Anthony Boucher on the cover.
Wicked Autumn by G, M. Malliet [Minotaur Books 2011 hardcover, library borrow] – mystery – reviewed by me here. I didn’t like it as well as most other readers, it seems.
