Been around for a few years but I hadn't read them before, just got a bunch from the local library.
Locke & Key by Joe Hill.
Comic book style series, I've just read books 1 to 6 and actually had a highly gruesome nightmare one night. Impressive imagination and features great artwork.

Matthew Reilly’s latest book has just been released ( I’m about half way through).

Always non stop action with his stuff.

Ooh.. thank you! I've read all his books but don't check often for the new ones. So thanks.

It’s a other chapter in the Jack West Jr series.

I prefer the Scarecrow ones personally but I guess multiple hero’s allows more scope

Certainly liked the scarecrow ones.

And as you've read them all

I thought the crossover between the two went better than I thought it would.

there's a couple of free downloads on his site as well

One tells the story about how Jack got the fireman's helmet

and the other is kinda a prequel to the two mountains book.

Both short stories



I really liked one of his 'stand alone' books "Temple" as well.

Just got War Lord by Bernard Cornwell, volume 13 of his Last Kingdom series, this is the last one :(......the other twelve were great. The Netflix series is only up to around book 6 and while I enjoyed it I enjoyed the books far more.....I visualised Uhtred as a rampaging barbarian covered in blood with veins between his teeth, what Netflix gave us was a sensitive new age barbarian with a nice hairstyle .

Reading Paul Theroux's third volume of essays at the moment Figures in a Landscape, his previous volumes being Sunrise with Seamonsters (1984) and Fresh Air Fiend (2001). Theroux is a great writer, though I must admit I prefer his non-fiction works. I've been a big fan of Theroux ever since reading The Great Railway Bazaar in the '70s.
