My first experience of CB was a book on tape that seemed tame (all I can remember of it as I was 17-18 and mostly played it while doing housework is that it featured parallel worlds or dimensions that might, come to think of it, be adapted to Buffy easily enough)...and as luck would have it went from mostly boring to utterly gory as I was having lunch and I nearly puked it up. Which is especially remarkable given that by this time I'd helped field dress a deer (cutting out its organs after killing it) with little problem, so he really made it vivid for me. I think I read one or two more (I have memories of reading rather than listening anyway, but maybe it just an hour in a library, can't remember) but I can't remember what about.He can get a bit much with the sex and gore sometimes for me. I have a pretty high threshold, but the way he describes things sometimes makes me feel a bit queasy. I can't deal with some of his fantasy books like Imajica, too dense and rambling. But Cabal, I love. Its the basis for the movie Nightbreed. Have you seen that? The theatrical version is good but the director's cut is more cohesive and closer to the book. And there is just something about Coldheart Canyon. I found it very engrossing and it stayed with me for awhile. It seems to be a book that people really like or absolutely hate, so I would be curious to hear your opinion on it
I did like the movie Nightbreed.
