    What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson

    Holy Jesus did this book knock me on my butt! Great novel. It tackles a lot of questions and fears we as humans have about death and the afterlife.

    Highly recommended. I know it's not horror but it's still great.

    ....when we have shuffled off this mortal coil....

    Sorry. I have to. One of my favorite lines from any play or literature ever.

    I heart Hamlet.

    I absolutely love Matheson's work. Stir of Echos kicked my butt, it's probably my favorite. I have to say this next thing though. I always tell people this, it's like a mission with me. I can't help it.
    Richard Matheson writes the best Westerns I have ever read!

    You can't go wrong with Matheson. I remember reading What Dreams May Come and it was very reassuring to hear of a possible afterlife that didn't necessarily involve having a pre-set religious belief.

    Someday ... But not today. I just got gutted by a book. I need the wounds to scab over a little bit before I go cutting myself open again.

    Patricia, I'll have to check Stir of echos. Is it a western?

    Oh no, it was awesome! Double Feature by Owen King. I heartily recommend it, but it was (for me) one of those books that leaves you with a book hangover for a while. You know? Like it takes a bit for you to fully orient yourself back into your regular life. It was one of those where you read the last page and think, "This. THIS IS WHY I READ."

    I think I might do something a little less intense for my next read.
