I am not exactly sure where to place this topic. Dandelion, maybe you can help out?

As some of you know, I am a struggling writer. One of my pet projects is an ode to classic SF pulp magazines and EC horror comics called If - E - Zine™: The Free Online Magazine of Thrilling Speculative Fiction!. With every issue of If - E - Zine I add in a suggested Reading & Viewing list. Here is the compiled list. I try not to suggest reading or viewing items I've not seen myself. I'm happy to see Bradbury mentioned more than once below. This list was compiled over 3 years. I've read more than this, but I do not suggest readings in my e-zine unless they are applicable to any running theme in whatever current issue I may be publishing.

Can anyone suggest further reading or viewing beyond this list? Let's get to talking about our favorite books and movies. Genre is open, because I am. Discuss.

Quick drop-in. Have you considered the Soloman Kane stories by Robert E. Howard? He was one of my favorite characters.

Also, Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury.

Thanks Mr. Dark.

I have considered the new Solomon Kane book. I've not gotten around to the purchase yet though and doubt I will check it out of the library as I see fit to buy it.

Something Wicked is a good suggestion. Currently I'm reading the collected shorts in A Medicine for Melancholy.


Thanx again. And I love REH
