Previously: The *Real* 2005 Recommended Reads List is up. A bunch of republished reviews from CFQ and Cemetery Dance are also posted along with an interview with Brian Lumley from the October CFQ. You might also want to read Making the List that tells the heart-rending story of a lone reviewer and her challenging quest to determine the "year's best" in all of sf/f/h for 2005...in early October...for a non-elitist readership...and limited to only ten books.

The interview with Joe Hill as well as a review of 20th Century Ghosts went up on 11.28.05 as did the November Book Brief with three new reviews: Swarmthief's Dance by Deborah Miller, Southern Fire: Book One of the Aldabreshin Compass Series by Juliet E. McKenna, and Circle of the Moon by Barbara Hambly.

Check the blog for the latest or any of the index pages for reviews, features, interviews you may have missed.

If you are looking for DarkEcho Horror, the cleverly named old site button will take you the index and from there to its content. (Warning! Once in the old site the "main" button will bring you back to the *new entry*, not to the DarkEcho Horror index or here. Just select v.3.0 or v.4.0 from there.)

What's this?

The old site, DarkEcho Horror (version 3.0), still exists -- the dark links are updated (well, almost), all the interviews , reviews, writers information, and features are still here. And, of course, all the great Rick Berry art is still there.

What else?

Subscribe to the newsletter and it will alert you to major adjustments. Once Halloween is over, check the blog.

The versions? In the last ten years there have been three major site constructions: the original tacky little site (v.1.0), the first makeover with Rick Berry art during the OMNI era (v.2.0), the massive remodel of about 3.5 years ago (v.3.0), and now the new white site (v.4).
