  1. Season 1 is not available for streaming or on-demand that I've found, so season 2 is still sitting on my dvr unwatched.
  2. But aren't comics the modern penny dreadfuls?
  3. SU&SD's documentary about TI4: I've never played any Twilight Imperium, but this was still very interesting. My favorite bits were easily the artist talking about trying to get away with stuff, and how he knows nothing about the game itself.
  4. I've had the former on my list for several years, still waiting for the kindle edition. The latter has some excellent stories in it, here's what I wrote when I read it several years ago (when I had the time the inclination to do so)
  5. I don't mind a new thread on this topic. It means I'm not the only one thinking about it You should give Banquet for the Damned a look too. Excellent book.
  6. My reads last year were: A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay Suicide Motor Club by Christopher Buehlman No One Gets Out Alive by Adam Nevill Pilo Family Circus by Will Elliot Interesting. Is the framing conceit of the train and station more than just a frame? Or is it just there to make it seem like that is not a collection of short stories? I think I preferred Those Across the River to Suicide Motor Club, but I really enjoyed both of them - and I still do think about SMC when I see somebody driving with their lights off. The Lesser Dead is on my short list for this year. I really had a great selection for my reading last year, and A Head Full of Ghosts was definitely the highlight. That's pushed Disappearance at Devil's Rock to the top of my list this year. I like your idea of September through November (mine was well into November last year), especially because I really don't have anything planned out to get me through to October after I finish the last 20% in my current book. I just saw that Peter Straub's Ghost Story is $1.99 on kindle. I've been wanting to read that for each of the past four years, but that price has always been extreme (and it only became available as an ebook two years ago). Looking around today I found a few more interesting possibilities: The Hidden People by Allison Littlewood Within These Walls by Ania Ahlborn Seed by Ania Ahlborn Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff (I may not read it this year, but I did literally just buy it because it was $0.99!) The Devil of Echo Lake by Douglas Wynne Help for the Haunted by John Searles Blood Kin by Steve Rasnic Tem Anybody read any of these and have thoughts on them? Another one near the top of my list for this year is The Troop by Nick Cutter, I bought it last year for a very nice price near the end of October. I usually like to do one each of a monster book, a haunted house book, a ghost book (although those can certainly overlap with the haunted house books), and a circusy book. The circus/carnival book is the most difficult to find each year, but thanks to a list on Goodreads, I've found lots of options: Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz When the Circus Came to Town Deborah McClatchey Goldenland Past Dark by Chandler Klang Smith Joyland by King might even fit the bill The Funhouse also by Koontz Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
  7. It really is. I'm glad you enjoyed the movie, I'm looking forward to seeing it, but it's one I'm happy to wait for it to hit dvd.
  8. I keep meaning to bump my annual thread on this same topic. Taking a quick peek at it makes me think I definitely need to read When We Were Animals by Joshua Gaylord. Still want to read The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp. Some I found the other day with a quick search were: Disappearance at Devil's Rock by Paul Tremblay (A Head Full of Ghosts was amazing), Stranded by Bracken MacLeod, and Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones. I really need to sit down and get a proper reading plan going though.
  9. I'm finally getting around to watching American Gods. That opening sequence was fantastic! Loved the whole first episode in fact, really looking forward to watching more.
  10. I meant to stop after episode 4 last night, because I needed to get to bed... ended up watching the last two. I'm wrecked today, and feel like I didn't get as much out of it as I should have (but some of that is because it's been such a long time since I watched season 4, really should have rewatched from the beginning).
  11. I thought about bumping this to say the same thing, but I've been too busy watching it
  12. Looks like they're just doing one season per year now, and season 30 will be released in 2018. Probably March again?
  13. I agree. It wasn't a bad movie, but I was a bit let down because the trailer had me expecting so much. I think they should have used Tyler Labine more, but the lesbian stepdad was hilarious - she stole every scene she was in. I looked her up on imdb and added a couple of her upcoming movies to my queue, one in which she plays a mother of a rapper in Jersey... I can't even reconcile the two characters as the same actress in my mind. I'm definitely looking forward to watching more of her work. And she gives a good interview
  14. Well I've been here for 15+ years, including the ezboard, and do not recall him posting here other that one time. But the more telling thing is that lack of discussion of him being a board member when the book was released, had he been, then that's all everybody would have talked about. ETA: Here's the book's first thread. I searched the first two pages and saw nothing indicating he was a member here, and I got the other Pat's user name wrong, it was pat5150.
