In Adventure, Books, Horror on June 24, 2010 at 8:27 am

Today: Irishman Darren Shan‘s Procession of the Dead. It’s his first adult novel after decades of totally awesome young adult Cirque du Freak fiction… it’s scary and thunderous and totally Frank von Stuck-ish.

OBE (Order of the Bloody Entrails) to:

Gerry Vaughan-Hughes – Pip! Pip! Pooray!!!!


Sarah Hodgson – new kid on the block
