@Epicurean I have not but intend to after you mentioned him.  I just looked him up & see he wrote NOS4A2 which I really enjoyed seeing the tv show based on this story which AMC showed & starred Ashleigh Cummngs who played Miss Fisher's assistant in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.  Anyway if his other stories are similar I will definitely appreciate his writings.

I've only read The Fireman. Excellent except the ending was so ridiculous I threw the book across the room. It was such a letdown after a great buildup. My personal opinion but I was really not a fan of that particular novel so much so I have chosen not to invest my time with him again.

 I read NOS4A2 and Horns.  They were both a lot of fun but the endings, though, I thought, were very unsatisfying.  There was no wrapping up.

@SharkE  The new book will be called Fairy Tale.  It's about this kid who meets a recluse and his dog.  They become friends.  Than the recluse dies leaving the kid a cassette tape that leads him out to another world.
