I'm interested in Richard Thomas's first novel, Transubstantiate, which is out this weekA Craig Clevenger blurb is promising.  I bookmarked the sample chapter to read, I just read the first few paragraphs and was intrigued.  (God, I've got to read The Passage at some point soon as well... seems really dense... I wish I were going to the woods or something, or an island.  Too much stress right now.  Can't think properly.)  There's a giveaway on goodreads.

I saw The Killer Inside Me.  It was pretty engaging but I don't know if I'd call it good.  The most notable thing about it is that the infamous murder scene--which prompted film festival walkouts and outcry for its allegedly intolerable brutality--was relatively tame, no worse than anything in Eastern Promises or Casino, in fact not as bad as Casino.  God forbid those who were outraged ever watch Irreversible or Martyrs.
