Carnacki, The Ghost Finder

by William Hope Hodgson

A delightful book as told by the original Ghost Hunter - Carnacki. Each chapter is a different tale told by Carnacki to his dinner guests, and some are real ghost stories, while others are shown to be hoaxes perpetrated by various undesirables. All of the tales are scary, witty, and enjoyable.

The Ghost Pirates

by William Hope Hodgson

Very creepy! A little hard to read the dialogue at times, due to the author's spelling of the sailor's accents. Overall, this book is an interesting quick read.

The House on the Borderland

by William Hope Hodgson

This is one of the creepiest, moodiest books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down! I finished reading it at about 3am, and then I was too spooked to sleep!

EXCELLENT!

Everyone In Silico

by Jim Munroe

I absolutely loved this book. It's a vision of the future that I would never have imagined myself, but I was able to delve into the story (or stories, as it follows several intertwined characters) and believe that it was plausible.

It doesn't have the most "tidy" ending, but it leaves room for the reader's imagination to "fill in the blanks". A sequel in the works, perhaps?
