The Long Walk * Stephen King Short Story (Bachman Books)

This was a short and scary book. 384 pages penned under Richard Bachman, just alongside Rage and Thinner, and it probably stands close in time with Running Man. I think Stephen King foresaw what entertainment would look like in the future. Murderous games done as entertainment, Survivor, Big Brother.

“To hell with you. You just don’t want to admit it. Those people, they’re animals. They want to see someone’s brains on the road, that’s why they turn out. They’d just as soon see yours.”
“Sure they’re animals. You think you just found out a new principle? Sometimes I wonder just how naive you really are. The French lords and ladies used to screw after the guillotinings. The old Romans used to stuff each other during the gladiatorial matches. That’s entertainment, Garraty. It’s nothing new.” He laughed againd. Garraty stared at him, fascinated.

Servant of the Bones * Anne Rice Book review

Anne Rice is world-famous for her “Interview with the vampire” series but from her came a few other stories – like Belinda, the erotic series “Claiming of the Sleeping Beauty” and now, I found “Servant of the Bones”, a story placed half in ancient Babylon and half in today’s world. Structured in three parts, this confessional / memoir of a spirit with tremendous power opens up a gate through which we can glimpse at the riches of Babylon, its rulers and gods, and also at the life of Hebrews, the Chosen People.
