Still reading The Wild Oblivion and really enjoying it. It's a neat take on the apocalypse. I'll review it once I'm done.

Scanlines is absolutely terrific. A great tale inspired by Budd Dwyer's suicide. :4stars:

I also listened to North American Lake Monsters: Stories by Nathan Ballingrud. The stories are hit and miss, with some being fantastic while others I skipped halfway through. Travis Young does a great job narrating this. If I were reading it, I probably would have tapped out of the two stories I didn't finish earlier, but his narration is so good, I was into them slightly more. :3stars:

I'm currently hate-listening to The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren by Gerald Brittle. My eyes have rolled quite a bit in the first chapter. However, I'm digging it because Todd Haberkorn's narration is pretty damn good, and every time he does Ed's voice, it reminds me of Mort from Bob's Burgers and I laugh each time Ed says something. :lol:

I'm thinking I might make one to keep in the trunk of the car though. Might be nice to have hot water if I ever have to watch a Matthews compound for 3-4 days hoping to get the drop on Sergio Frenchi. - Neon Bolan

Right now I am reading The Silver Bridge by Gray Barker about the Mothman, ufonauts and Indrid Cold. https://amzn.to/4c4QuF3

Not sure why I haven't read this one before.

I've been reading the Silo series. I'm enjoying it. I would recommend it. I haven't seen the TV show but might one day when I'm done with the series.

I have the Silo series in my TBR. I'll bump it up.

I just finished Killer Clown: The John Wayne Gacy Murders by Terry Sullivan and Peter T. Maiken. Found it kind of meh. Glad I read it, but not overly impressed. I can't decide if it was the meh narrator or the work itself. :threestars:

Today I just started Pimp: The Story of My Life by Iceberg Slim. IThis is another one free for Audible+ members* and HOLY SHIT I'm all in. I'm already wanting to read his other books, and I've only completed the forward and the first chapter. :lol:

The narrator on this is fantastic.

*Looks like I'm pimping Audible, I'm not. Just letting you know if you're an Audible+ member, these are free reads.

I finished the first Silo book, it was good, I'd recommend it. I started the second book, and I'm not sure if this one will take over from where the last one ended or be a completely different part of the story. It starts in our near future but in the series the far past and they're kind of talking about building the silos. So I don't know if they're going to jump back in or just go in a completely different way.

Why aren't we all reading this? It's even free. :(

Chirp is having an AWESOME sale on three X-Files anthologies, so I started listening to one, The Truth Is out There.

Also finished The Wild Fall (review coming soon!) and started Brian Asman's Our Black Hearts Beat as One.

The second Silo book is really good. It's a prequel of sorts. Again I would totally recommend this series.

No I'm not going to read dinosaur books even for free. Not unless they're raiding brothels and taking out Matthews.
