hey here's something we have not talked about too much here

does anyone have any favorite horror/scifi writers?

i like stephen kings older stuff although duma key was quite good.

i'm enjoying the book "let the right one in" think i'm going to have to check more stuff by this swedish writer John Ajvide Lindqvist. super creepy

i have been loving reading a. lee martinez's books. he's a pulpy writer with strange sci-fi/fantasy settings. very creative. robot detectives, squid super vilians, and books with no human charectors at all in them. fun stuff.

 Re: writers
Great idea for a thread al! I wish I could get around to reading more than I do. I really like Stephen King too, though I haven't read anything by him in quite a few years. I loved "The Stand", "It", "'Salem's Lot", "The Green Mile", "Four Seasons" and others. If I didn't have such a backlog of books I need to read I'd consider re-reading some of those older King books.

As far as writers whose material has been successfully translated to movies it's pretty amazing how much Richard Matheson has been responsible for. I've only actually read a few of his books, but I've loved many of the movies based on his writing.

 Re: writers
that's weird. i responded to your post col but it vanished.

ugh

anyhow, i love the novel the shrinking man. so many interesting things the novel gets into that never come up in the movie

i also love that the book starts with a bang.

it starts with him being chased by the spider then the other stuff is told in flashbacks.

today i finished let the right one in. man that book is creepy on a lot of levels.

Hmm, The Incredible Disappearing Reply! Sounds like it could be a good read.

I've been meaning to read "The Incredible Shrinking Man" for quite a few years--both because it was written by Matheson and because I've alway loved the movie. I thought "I Am Legend" was a great read. It's amazing that it was able to be the source of three very different movies over the course of three generations. I know that "The Omega Man" has its detractors (some of whom seem to dislike it simply because of Heston's politics) and all three films have fans and haters, I actually like all three of them. They each speak to the times they were made in (like all good sci-fi does). I'd say that "The Last Man on Earth" sticks closest to the book.
