^I'm about to buy a copy from Amazon. Maybe LB and Brant will allow for a review of it here. I'm thinking Necronomicon, or whatever that WWI demon shooter game is called, will be a good gaming compliment for it too.

Sure. We're eclectic. Book reviews are fine - but we'd like to stick more to gaming so let's not do too many of them.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter would certainly make a good exception to the rule.

^See LB the people are clambering for it :)

Yes NecroVision that's it. I almost bought the 'complete pack' for that game a few weeks ago but thought 'what will my OCD mind read while playing this'?

Well now I have the answer!

I was kinda hoping that part of the story is that he faked his assassination to focus on huntin' vampires, and that he'd time travel to the present to kill Edward & Bella!!  :)

If a movie executive was searching for a way to pry money out of my wallet, THAT would be one way to do it!  The Avengers is another.

^Read it, I loved it too. I found this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0307595080/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Looks excellent. I may wait a little bit to read a few more titles in my giant queue before buying anything else. Trying to be mature about this :)

We'll see if I can hold out the day.

While we're talking horror books, I'm actually reading a collection HP Lovecraft stuff. I had never previously read anything by him, but my reading up to prepare to play Arkham Horror got me curious. I picked up one of the story collections, and so far it's pretty good.

I have always hated horror in any medium that delves in to slasher flick territory...it isn't scary and it isn't particularly interesting. Lovecraft's stuff is intentionally vague, where he described just enough to get your own imagination cranked up and filling in the horrible blanks. Really, really good.

^Me too, hate the slasher type thing unless it's like The Shining. Have loved Lovecraft since I was in high school.
