1 Barker, Clive COLDHEART CANYON: A HOLLYWOOD GHOST STORY
HarperCollins 2001 0060182970 / 9780060182977 1st Edition Hardcover Fine/Fine 
A highly collectible first edition/printing, tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. It is 1916 in the Hollywood of Theda Bara and Douglas Fairbanks Sr., and silent film star Katya Lupi receives a magnificent gift: an entire room constructed of hand-painted tiles removed from a Romanian monastery and installed, piece by piece, on her Hollywood estate. Not only is the room an aesthetic masterpiece but it is also possessed by the Devil. Katya, a woman of strong desires and appetites, quickly learns to use its powers to her advantage, ensnaring the souls of other cinema legends who share her thirst for beauty, fame, and fortune. From this dangerous precipice, Barker, whose numerous best-selling novels (Galilee, etc.) and experience as a film producer have won him a loyal following, entices his readers to leap into a fantastical world populated by ghostly beasts that roam the hills of a modern-day Tinseltown.

2 Barker, Clive COLDHEART CANYON: A HOLLYWOOD GHOST STORY
HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS 2001 0002558645 / 9780002558648 Hardcover F/NF 
A highly collectible first edition, tight clean copy, protected in a new br odart wrapper, no inscriptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. Barker fans may breathe a sigh of relief. That the Walt Disney Company is paying $8 million for ancillary rights to the author's forthcoming for-all-ages novel series, The Arabat Quartet (first volume due out in 2002), doesn't mean the British master of dark fantasy has lost his savage bite. Barker's new novel is a ferocious indictment of (and backhanded tribute to) Hollywood Babylon, depicted through Barker's glorious imagination as a nexus of human and inhuman evil where fleshly pursuits corrupt the spirit. It's also one ripping ghost story, spooky and suspenseful, as well as a departure for Barker in that here, as never before, the fantastic mingles with the real, kind of.

MOON, Herbert, James
5 Herbert, James MOON
Random House Value Publishin 1986 0517562782 / 9780517562789 1st Edition Hardcover, Ex- VG/VG 
Herbert's horror novel is a turgid affair. It concerns Jonathan Childes, a schoolteacher with a psychic talent, who can occasionally see through the e yes of a certain lunatic during the commission of quite grisly crimes. The lunatic senses Childes's psychic presence, however, and with malignant inge nuity tracks him down and menacesand in some cases murdershis family, frien ds and students. Childes is often the natural suspect, but this possible so urce of dramatic tension is undercut by the faith of a friendly police insp ector.

7 King, Stephen BAG OF BONES INTERNATIONAL
Pocket Books 1988 0671026070 / 9780671026073 Paperback Near Fine 
In all of Stephen King's enormous body of writing, some of his best works h ave featured authors as protagonists. Among these, the chilling The Dark Ha lf, the utterly creepy Desperation, and Misery, a true masterpiece, stand o ut. His new book, Bag of Bones, which revolves around bestselling thriller author Mike Noonan, can now be added to this list. Bones is a hauntingly be autiful novel that will touch your heart as easily as it tingles your spine . It has elements of classic King horror, but it's also something of a depa rture, as the author explores a few areas of the human mind and heart that are rarely significant roles in horror fiction. The result is an exceptiona l and excitingly original novel that is destined to take its place among Ki ng's most memorable.

8 King, Stephen DREAMCATCHER
Pocket 2003 0743467523 / 9780743467520 Paperback Very Good 
In an author's note to this novel, the first he's written since his near-fa tal accident, King allows that he wrote the first draft of the book by hand . So much for the theory that it's word-processing alone that leads to logo rrhea. Yet despite its excessive length, the novel one of the most complex thematically and structurally in King's vast output dazzles and grips, if f itfully. In its suspenseful depiction of an alien invasion, it superficiall y harkens back to King's early work (e.g., the 1980 novella "The Mist"), bu t it also features the psychological penetration, word-magic and ripe imagi nation of his recent stuff (particularly Bag of Bones). The action shuttles between present and past, following primarily the tribulations of a band o f five males four regular guys from Derry, Maine (setting of King's It and Insomnia), and their special friend, Duddits, a Down's child (then man) wit h telepathic abilities.

11 King, Stephen NEEDFUL THINGS
Signet Book 1997 0451172817 / 9780451172815 Paperback Very Good 
With the "Last Castle Rock Story" King bids a magnificent farewell to the f ictional Maine town where much of his previous work has been set. Of grand proportion, the novel ranks with King's best, in both plot and characteriza tion. A new store, Needful Things, opens in town, and its proprietor, Lelan d Gaunt, offers seemingly unbeatable (read: Faustian) bargains to Castle Ro ck's troubled citizens. Among them are Polly Chalmers, lonely seamstress wh ose arthritis is only one of the physical and psychic pains she must bear; Brian Rusk, the 11-year-old boy whose mother is not precisely attentive; an d Alan Pangborn, the new sheriff whose wife and son have recently died. The se are only three of the half-dozen or so brilliantly drawn people met in t he novel's one-month time span. As the dreams of each strikingly memorable character, major and minor, inexorably turn to nightmare, individuals and s oon the community are overwhelmed, while the precise nature of Gaunt's evil thrillingly stays just out of focus. King, like Leland Gaunt, knows just w hat his customers want.

12 Koontz, Dean FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE
Feature 2000 0747270740 / 9780747270744 Paperback Near Fine 
Some men are not serial killers--they just keep finding reasons, which seem good to them at the time, for a series of murders; Junior, the villain of Dean Koontz's genuinely strange dark comedy of misunderstanding and awful d eath From the Corner of his Eye suffers from the delusion that he is the fa voured child of destiny, and that all he has to do is tinker with reality o ne more time, kill one more person. He keeps guessing wrong--he thinks that he has to fnid a child called Bartholomew, who is his nemesis; we get to k now Bartholomew, a prodigy who loses his eyes to cancer as a child, but can walk between raindrops. Bartholomew is only one of the good people whom Ju nior's crimes bring together--for a book with as much mayhem as this one co ntains, it is one which has a surprising confidence in the provident abilit y of the universe to bring the delightful out of the horrible, the wonderfu l out of the disgusting. Dean Koontz has always been one of the more intere sting writers to operate in that strange area where sf, horror and the thri ller blend and merge; here he further blends and mingles tragedy and comedy , the sacred and the profane.

ODD THOMAS, Koontz, Dean
14 Koontz, Dean ODD THOMAS
Bantam 2004 0553584499 / 9780553584493 Paperback Very Good++ 
A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book: Once in a very great while, an author does everything right-as Koontz has in this marvelous novel. Odd Thomas, who narrates, is odd indeed: only 20, he works contentedly as a fry cook in a small fictional California town, despite a talent for writing. The reason for his lack of ambition? A much rarer talent: Odd sees and converses with ghosts, the lingering dead who have yet to pass on, a secret he has kept from nearly everyone but his girlfriend, an eccentric author friend and the local police chief, whom he occasionally helps solve terrible crimes. Odd also has the ability to see bodachs, malevolent spirits that feast on pain and whose presence signifies a likelihood of imminent violence. The proximity of bodachs to a weird-looking stranger in town, whom Odd dubs "Fungus Man," alerts Odd that trouble is brewing; breaking into Fungus Man's house, Odd discovers not only hundreds of bodachs but a shrine to serial killers that helps him deduce that somehow Fungus Man will wreak widespread havoc very soon-so Odd is caught in a classic race against time to deter catastrophe. As with Koontz's best novels, this one features electrifying tension and suspense, plus a few walloping surprises. But Koontz fans know that the author has recently added humor to his arsenal of effects, and this thriller also stands out for its brilliant tightrope walk between the amusing and the macabre; one of the dead with whom Odd interacts frequently, for instance, is Elvis, still pining for his long-dead mother, Gladys. Above all, the story, like most great stories, runs on character
