I'm still trying my best to read the longstanding classics in horror—I hang my head in shame for having yet to read Richard Matheson's Hell House—but I also try to make room for the newcomers in writing. I have strong, bludgeoning me over the head, suspicions I would be missing out on something special if I didn't read this novel at some point in my life. I just hope it's sooner rather than later.

Wish List Wednesday #8: "Through A Glass, Darkly"
Here is the debut novel of a guy many say has the potential to be the new voice of horror literature. It's a tall order for Bill Hussey with only two novels published, with a third on the way, but I haven't come across a negative review for this book yet. The title is one that's been used in the past by other authors, and who could blame them, as it strikes such imagery in the mind's eye. Plus, Hussey's publishers gave his book a stark and evocative cover. It's deliciously dark.
