Frank Cotton's insatiable appetite for the dark pleasures of pain led him to the puzzle of Lemarchand's box, and from there, to a death only a sick-minded soul could invent. But his brother's love-crazed wife, Julia, has discovered a way to bring Frank back-though the price will be bloody and terrible . . . and there will certainly be hell to pay....

Interesting to hear Stephen Fry's life stories and how the Sherlock Holmes stories affected his own life journey.

Life is full of choices. Right now, yours is whether or not to buy the autobiography of a mid-grade, kind of hammy actor.

This books gives more insight into the Bruce and friends and a little on Evil Dead. Audible should release Campbell's other books...

This is recognisable as Stephen King but is refreshingly different from supernatural or ghost or monster tales.

Christine was eating into his mind, burrowing into his unconscious. Christine, blood red, fat, and finned, was 20. Her promise lay all in her past. Greedy and big, she was Arnie's obsession, a '58 Plymouth Fury. Broken down but not finished. There was still power in her - a frightening power that leaked like sump oil, staining and corrupting. A malign power that corroded the mind and turned ownership into possession.

I enjoyed the brilliant film by Carpenter. So I am glad to have heard the original story by King. It is more ghostly and gives more details that would have been difficult for the film to portray.
