Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
My next story will be Letter Number Nine, a short novel (hopefully), where the reader sees inside the mind of a domestic terrorist who receives letters from an employer that he has never met directing him on his "missions". He receives a check every time he commits an act of terror against groups he considers as enemies of the state, so he continues carrying out the missions. But Letter Number Nine takes him on a mission like none other---one that will change his beliefs forever.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
My Top Three Short Horror Stories: My favorite short story is, by far, Lunch at the Gotham Cafe by Stephen King. This story can be found in his collection of short stories, Everything's Eventual. A close second is Berenice by Edgar Allan Poe. Third would be A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess is very addictive once you get the hang of reading the slang-language of the narrator. But, another one that is easy to read and very entertaining is another favorite of mine, Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut.
