Ah the arms. The really should have used the covers from the Delirium hard covers for The Rising and City instead of those silly arms.

Forgot how great SK is in making you feel part of the world he creates

Hell, I finished "The Gunslinger" in 2 days... Last author to make me read 'till my eyes bled was George R.R. Martin so I'm glad I can experience the Dark Tower before "A feast for Crows" comes out in what... 2009?

Yeah, the arms (with those "puffy" shirts flapping) don't make for the most imposing covers.

I don't even want to think about what Leisure is going to do with Brian's next book Earthworm Gods. They are not only changing the cover but the title as well.

Glad to hear it. This will be my 11th HCC book. My favorite thus far is Little Girl Lost by Richard Aleas, read it if you get the chance.

Thanks. I was actually looking for Little Girl Lost and/or The Confession by Domenic Stansberry but they weren't in stock at my Borders, so I got the other two instead. I'll continue to keep an eye out for it.

Reading The Dark Tower, I have been putting this off since the day it came out, I don't want it to end and have been finding any reason to read something else. I am good ways into it and just fread and am on the edge of my seat with every page and have had to force myself to put it down.

I just started re-reading The Dark Tide. It's been years since I first read it.

Just finished Steinbeck's Travels with Charley. For a different perspective on cross-country travel, I'm starting Kerouac's On the Road.
