My Reading List for 2014

On January 1st of 2014, I was still a fresh young reviewer for The Mouths of Madness Podcast. Still trying to find my voice. I was also looking to have my most productive year as a reader, and I did. I initially set out to devour the back catalogue of Ramsey Campbell throughout the year, plus the handful of Stephen King & Clive Barker titles that I had not previously read.

But then something amazing happened. An author contacted me, after seeing a review I had posted on Goodreads, and thanked me for taking the time to read his work. I was amazed. This author was Terry M. West and he would become the first of a legion of author “friends of the podcast”. Through Mr. West I made my acquaintance with a couple of authors and their work.

Then Todd Keisling took the time to thank me for reading two of his pieces. Again, I was amazed. Writers don’t talk to readers, except for the obligatory thank you in a book’s introduction, do they?

Through Mr. Keisling I made my acquaintance with the “Awkward Converstions With Geeky Writers” gang (I do believe they actually constitute an honest to goodness, blood-in blood-out, organized gang).
Long story short, I veered from my original reading plan and read some of the most entertains books and met some of the most entertaining characters in my reading career.

    I’m impressed! That’s a hell of a lot of books. You’re either a speed reader or you an bend time and space. I’m envious. I always feel like Burgess Meredith in The Twilight Zone. Never enough time to read.

      That is my favorite Twilight Zone episode, and my reasoning for always having a spair pair of glasses. A lot of these are shorter pieces but I did fininsh the year with an avg. of 35 pages a day. I’m glad that I finally got my hands on some of your work,
