I must have forgot to check the public option. There's no way, as far as I can see, to undo that now, but I put a note in my MR Book Club Vote template to remind me in the future.

I know a lot of you may want to vote for Storm Front, but as far as being creepy and/or scary, it's not one bit. It's quite far from it. It's not really an appropriate book as far as creepy/scary goes.
I agree. It's the one and only Jim Butcher book I've read. Can't say I'm a big fan, but I didn't hate it either.

Coincidentally, I just bought a copy of The Haunting of Hill House last week, so I'm eager to read it. My vote is decided!
When I saw this book on the list the first thing I did was check to see if it was available as an ebook and bought it as soon as I saw that it was. This is the book I voted for, but I'm reading it regardless of how the vote goes.

A couple months ago I read Hell House by Richard Matheson and that book is definitely scary and disturbing -- my kind of book.

I'm kind of hoping one of the haunted house stories will come from behind, but following the example of my predecessor, I won't vote except to break a tie.

Thanks, Jon. I'll convert that to MOBI and upload it, unless you were already in the process of doing that.

Nope, I wasn't in the process. I was thinking of it, but feel free.

Happy to help. I looked on MR to see if we had this and all we had was an obsolete LRF.

Moreau is also available on Project Gutenberg. I just finished reading it. Quite entertaining. I can't decide what to vote for. There's a couple that have me quite interested.

I see my vote would probably be lost on Frankenstein so I went with "The Island Of Dr.Moreau".

I know. That's where I got the text. The ePub and mobi versions here on MR are formatted better then the PG meatgrinder.
