So last night I finished Stephen King's "Duma Key" and it was really great. That's not really what I expected, but it was. After reading "Bag of Bones" earlier in the year and finding it exceptional as well, I was willing to give King a second chance.
I don't read a lot of genre fiction, as I usually find it to be a bit trying... but these two books were really great escapes, and was wondering if anyone could offer some other suggestions along this line. I like the creepy stuff, but it needs to have some meat to make it interesting.
I'm not too interested in a lot of King's early stuff, and I am slowly making my way through the Dark Tower series... but other authors and any other books you'd suggest, I'd be interested in hearing.
