    Strangest fucking thing I've ever read. First 50 pages were hard to follow, but it's starting to be a bit more linear.

    I've never given up on a book before, but this might be the first. It got a lot of praise, so I'm hoping it kicks into gear soon, only a couple creepy bits so far and just not very enthralling.

    I'm choking this novel down like Whoopd chokes down dong in the desert.

    I'm determined.

    Been dying to watch Game of Thrones, so chances are I'll start the first book this weekend

    Decided to go with "The Skull Throne" as the final book of the series drops on the 3rd of next month. Liked the early books a bit better, but still a worthwhile series. Dying to see how it's going to end.

    Actually scored a numbered autographed copy of "Messengers Legacy", lucked out and got it on Amazon as a used item in great shape for under $20.

    Laird Barron is amazing. Currently reading "Shiva, Open Your Eyes"

    Brilliant horror, I'll share a quote or two after work.

    Dude's giving me fucking nightmares..

    "The identification was in his wallet, which filled an inner pocket of a bad coat, wedged in front an ancient pack of Pall Malls. The big man had picked up the habit in the Philippines, but seldom smoked anymore. He kept them around because sure as a stud hound lifts its leg to piss, the minute he left home without a pack the craving would pounce in him hammer and tongs. He was not prone to self-analysis, this big man, yet it amused him after a wry sense that he had crushed an addiction only to be haunted by its vengeful ghost."

    "I try not to think too much. I try not to think too much about the buried things, anyhow. Better to consider the cycle that binds me in its thrall. For my deeds there is a season--spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each time I change it becomes clearer what precisely maintains its pattern. That I am a fragment of something much larger is obvious."

    "Everyone is looking for the answer. They do not want to find the answer, trust me. Unfortunately the answer will find them. Life--it's like one of those unpleasant nature documentaries. To be the cameraman instead of the subjects, eh?"

    Bulldozer - Laird Barron

    "Exactly what did you do to aquire this.... knowledge?

    I established communion with a primordial intelligence, a Cyclopean plexus rooted below these hills and valleys. An unclassified mycoflora that might or might not be of terrestrial origin. There are rites to effect this dialogue. A variety of osmosis ancient as the sediment men first crawled from. Older! Most awful, I assure you."

    It's called a word salad, a sign of dementia.

    Sounds to me like he was tripping on shrooms.

    "mycoflora"

    Also, referring to it as a "communion" along with "mycoflora" as well as "cyclopean" (a lot of people see eyes on shrooms) & "terrestrial" (a lot of people see aliens) tells me he is referring to shrooms.

    I don't mind such word salads but I've generally found such people to be paranoid and distrusting. They live secluded lives and seem to be knowledgeable but never seem to have applied that knowledge anywhere, rendering it useless.
