1 The Terror (perhaps best novel I have ever read)
Choices 2-6 are virtually on par with each other and I also list them as some of the best novels I have ever read.
2 Drood (Just the relationship & meetings between Collins & Dickens only can carry this novel, fantastic stuff)
3 Phases of Gravity (a gem of a book, it deeply moved me)
4 Black Hills
5 The Fifth Heart (Ever since meeting Holmes in Black Hills, I was praying for this novel and it didn't disappoint)
6 The Crook Factory (Somebody please make this into a film)
7 Carrion Comfort (My first Simmons novel read at the age of 13, twisted my mind for good ;\) )
8 Song of Kali (read just after Carrion Comfort, very disturbing stuff)
9 Summer of night
10 The Hollow Man
11 Flashback (The ending of this novel left me very unsettled)
13 The fall of Hyperion
14 The abominable
15 Children of the night
16 Winter haunting
I haven't included the short works in this list.
I have been reading Mr Simmons novels since the age of 13, I am now almost a half century old and hope to be given time to catch up with the backlog and see many more works from his pen.
The painful wait for Omega Canyon is becoming soul destroying!!!
At least I can look forward to the Terror mini series.....looks so good!!
