I enjoyed Richard Laymons Bite and The Traveling Vampire Show. Poppy Z Brite has a few also that are very modern day, gothish type too.

I enjoyed the stories but I didn't read them, I borrowed them from the Library in audio form. I haven't gotten all the way through them yet. But I did read the Magic Kingdom books.

My fav desk reference lately would be How To Write Killer Fiction by Carolyn Wheat. It isn't aimed at any type of fantasy or scifi but it is aimed at mystery and suspense which are the basis for many scifi/fantasy stories. I use it to stimulate ideas.

I've been a lurker for years, even registered once but didn't post much then went inactive and got deleted. I've started writing again and so I found this place in my writing bookmarks folder.
