Current Obsession...
After three years of my wife suggesting that I would really enjoy reading the Sookie Stackhouse: Southern Vampire Series, I have finally succombed and I've definitely sunk my teeth into it.  While I've seen the HBO series, I have now read beyond it and (as English teachers will often say) the books definitely have more to offer with character development, backstory, and a heroine who can be smart, sexy, and more powerful in many ways than the other supernatural beings who share her world.

The Monstrumologist
Following the gift of some rambling journals from an elderly man in a care facility, a young writer discovers a hidden world of those who study and hunt the creatures of the night that has been in existence for centuries. As he reads the musings, the reader is thrust into a world of an orphaned twelve year old boy in the 1800's who serves as a doctor's assistant and comes to be a pivotal part in the tracking of the Antropophagi: a race of creatures who appear as headless humans, with eyes on their shoulders, and mouths of thousands of sharp and vicious teeth where the stomach should be; and these creatures are terrorizing New England. What will the Doctor do to stop them and what part will his apprentice Will Henry play in all of it?
