Feherty is a riot! He's a former pro golfer and an announcer for the PGA tour. If you like golf you will also want to check out his other books 'Somewhere In Ireland A Village Is Missing An Idiot', which is a collection of his columns in Golf magazine, and 'A Nasty Bit Of Rough', an hilarious fiction novel about a golf rivalry between an Irish family and a Scottish one. Read it, or I will confiscate your Bungley back-up wedge!

I have read a few books from Anne Rule. She writes stories about murder in the Northwest, mainly the Seattle Washington area. She has some interesting good books. Some of her books contain one long story and some short stories on this subject. Excellant read, I suggest it.

Have you ever tried Clive Barker?  He is twisted, but an absolutely amazing writer.

Right now I am reading the 911 Commision report and "Through Violet Eyes" by Stephen Woodworth.

Clive Barker is one of my favorite authors!! Books Of Blood is an all time fave for me. Along with Cabal.
The Bachman books by Richard Bachman (Steven King) is a great book.
Also love Interview with the vampire, but weirdly none of the other books. Foirst read that book back in 85 or 86, still love it. I took it to school with me Freshman year and read it during study hall, now my son is doing the same thing. Hes a freshman whos reading it during study hall.  biggrin.gif

Clive Cussler-Trojan Odyssey


Voracious reader of: Tom Clancy, Ludlum, Ann Rule, that Douglas guy from the FBI profiling section, Necromancer series, and oh so many more.


I cannot bear to give away my books, so my house is a maze of stacks of books and art shite. One day the EMTs will fail to save me as they won't find me amid the mess.
Fame after death-I can see it now:

Woman perishes after 911 call-Medics could not find her amid plethora of books and art paraphenalia.

I only found out that my wife has been secretely taking a few books a month to the local charity shop to clear some of my book mountain. ohmy.gif

I did moan until I realised that I hadn't noticed  - but I did give her a list of those she couldn't give away.
