I just started "Deadline," which is Book 2 of the "Newsflesh" trilogy by Mira Grant... it takes place circa 2040 and America is slowly re-building itself after a zombie apocalypse some twenty years previous. Very cool, action packed sci-fi/horror mix, with a good dose of humor as well. In this reality, Zombies are simply a fact of life, like mosquitoes, and it's funny to see how humanity has simply learned to deal with them being around.

Love me some Koontz, I fell WAY behind with his stuff goin' back about ten years ago. I'll never get caught up.

This week our local library had a used book sale so I picked up a couple of goodies - Roger Ebert's "Your Movie Sucks," George Carlin's "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" and "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" (book 2 of the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series) by Douglas Adams.

...I've been trying to re-acquire the "Hitchhiker's Guide" books for a while now, ever since my toddler son got hold of my paperbacks a couple of years ago and made them into slobber covered confetti.

So far I've only replaced books #2 and 3 ("Life, The Universe, and Everything"). So hey, if anybody out there has a paperback of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," "So Long and Thanks For All The Fish" or "Mostly Harmless" that you don't know what to do with, send it my way. Very Happy

Dean Koontz book "Odd Thomas" was made into a movie, and sadly it ain't even coming to the theater in out town, stupid back water inbred town of mine, we never keep up on anything, surprised we have electricity sometimes. Razz

^^ I wouldn't sweat it cuz for the most part, Koontz's stuff has not translated very well to film over the years. Have you ever seen "Hideaway" with Jeff Goldblum and the chick from "Clueless?"

His book "Intensity" was made into a pretty good TV mini series in the late 90s and "Phantoms" wasn't bad in a retro '50s sci-fi homage kinda way, but otherwise most of the films of his stuff have been low budget crap (i.e. "Watchers," "Servants of Twilight," etc.)...
