Fantastic book - read it in two days flat when I was on holiday about ten years ago.
I then tried to recreate every one of them in FM and failed miserably ! :D

Scary, had just recommended the Rats trilogy to a workmate. read them myself during school. Great books. The fog was a decent read too. I'll add Salem's Lot, the film was pretty good but the book scared the you know what outta me when I was a kid.

The only Herbert I read was Fluke.
I think that was him wasn't it ??

Amazing book - really inventive and original - but the movie version was laughable !

Never heard of either of the last two authors above.

I've just started Replay by Ken Grimwood :

At forty-three Jeff Winston is tired of his low-paid, unrewarding job, tired of the long silences at the breakfast table with his wife, saddened by the thought of no children to comfort his old age. But he hopes for better things, for happiness, maybe tomorrow ... But a sudden, fatal heart attack puts paid to that. Until Jeff wakes up in his eighteen-year-old body, all his memories of the next twenty-five years intact. If he applies those memories, he can be rich in this new chance at life and can become one of the most powerful men in America. Until he dies at forty-three and wakes up in his eighteen-year-old body again ...
