The Right Hand of Evil is John Saul

It was a pleasure to burn. - Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

'Cause Sadie moved like water poured
The shapes she shaped had angels floored
She knew her walk turned wind to fire
A wink from Sadie turned brains to mire"
-Tim Seibles, The Ballad of Sadie LaBabe

The Right Hand of Evil is John Saul

(well, that title was better than saying the John was "Unwanted" or "Unloved")

Hmm...where to start. John Saul is my favorite author!! Okay, now that that is out... His novels are real page-turners, the kind of book you can't put down until it is finished. As far as categorizing his genre, he writes thrillers or horror. John is Dean Koontz or Stephen King-esque, but he is THE master of terror! His writing style is amazing. John uses just enough detail to keep you in the story, but not too much so that you are bored. He is the author of 28 books.

The new book, In the Dark of the Night, is expected July 2006!

Read his biography from the Official John Saul Website.

The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss. This is one of my absolute favorite stories. Focusing on prejudice, it demonstrates the silliness of segregating people based on categories (race, religion, gender, etc). The story's strength is that it shows just how arbitrary these categories are.

The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. In this classic story, a new mother suffering from what we might today call 'post-partum depression,' sinks into a still-deeper depression invisible to her husband, who believes he knows what is best for her. Alone in the yellow-wallpapered nursery of a rented house, she descends into madness.

"Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?" He asked. "Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop."

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
