I haven't updated this thread for too long.
Spooky New York: Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore by Schlosser, S.E.: Easy bedtime reading. Not really spooky.
Heart-Shaped Box by Hill, Joe. Recommend this one. Will try and read more of his work. He definitely has his own voice (completely seperate from his iconic horror father, Stephen King).
The Fold by Clines, Peter: Sequel to 14. Hard science fiction with a HP Lovecraftian twist. Rating it an Awesome possum.
Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day by Loory, Ben *
The Fuller Memorandum (Laundry Files, #3) by Stross, Charles: Highly recommend the entire Laundry Files series. Cheeky James Bondesque thrillers if all the baddies came from the mind of HP Lovecraft.
Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel I by Sin, r.h.: Don't bother unless you're a literal feminist millenial. Not terrible but too self help. I definitely wasn't the target audience.
New and Selected Poems, Vol. 2 by Oliver, Mary: DEFINITE RECOMMENDATION
Reread The Mote in God's Eye by Niven, Larry. Didn't hold up very well on the second read.
The Dead Mountaineer's Inn by Strugatsky, Arkady: Not my cup of scifi tea. Didn't satisfy my crime noir itch either.
14 by Cines, Peter: This definitely satisfies my cravings for HP Lovecraft (keep in mind its set in present day). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Harrow County, Vol. 3: Snake Doctor by Bunn, Cullen: Definitely not scary. Will not go out of my way to read the first two volumes or any new ones that come out. Not bad. Just shrugworthy. Love the art style.
Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact by Lowery, Matt Mair . I really liked it. Most likely, further volumes read via the NYPL.
Spill Zone (Spill Zone, #1) by Westerfeld, Scott: Really mesmerizing and utterly mindsshattering read. DEFINITE RECOMMENDATION.
