"The Five" by Robert McCammon. Great thriller about a failing rock group being stalked by a deranged Marine sniper. I'm amazed it hasn't been filmed yet.

I have, but "Usher's Passing" is far better. Some of his early books are a bit ropey (e.g. "Baal") but his later work is excellent: "Boy's Life", "Going South" etc.

I don't know what it's called but it's the music playing in the shopping mall in the original "Dawn of the Dead" and it's also reworked for the end titles of "Robot Chicken" tv series.

I agree about Monster but Christina Ricci is the scene stealer and doesn't need prosthetics to do it.

Soldier Blue, Ferngully, Dances With Wolves+ a bit of lame SF window dressing = Avatar.
Beautiful to look at but tedious to watch if you've seen any of its predecessors.

Kindle's 3G connection is like a red rag to a bull for the weak-willed. I downloaded an M. R. James ghost story anthology whilst killing time on the platform at South Kensington tube station today.:)

I've always wondered why someone who has made such a huge contribution to British tv has never been knighted. Long overdue.

US dramas are infinitely better than ours but they are far too quick to cancel shows which are good but need a chance to develop a following, e.g. Terriers, Rubicon, Caprica.
