Conn: You might also want to try Dandelion Wine, which is fine piece of a related kind....
sounded good to me too but it seemed more like good personal story than the dark fantasy-horror book i need for horror month.
About Something Wicked This Way Comes
i must say i do like the border land stories between dark fantasy-horror. I like that weird feeling and not looking only for horror that is creepy. I like the mood better than anything in the hands of quality weird writer. Thats why this books sound most interesting to me.
