    Is there any fiction you suggest HTV players read?


    Didn't anyone ever tell you not to bring claws to a gun fight?

    John Steakley's Vampires (or Vampires$ as it is sometime stylized), which is a lot better than the movie adaption of it, as it goes into more detail about the psychological stress of hunting vampires as an actual job and just what sort of people would actually do it.

    Larry Milne's novelization of the original 1984 Ghostbusters, which is recently back in print and available digitally, as it goes into a good deal of background about each of the characters (including the fact that Winston is an Air Force veteran) and other details about the various hauntings.

    What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly. That is the first law of nature.
    Voltaire, "Tolerance" (1764)

      Whitley Striber's The Wolfen, about a pair of NYPD detectives investigating a string of suspicious deaths that are the work of a race of shapeshifters.

      Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's Relic and its sequel Reliquary, the first about a monster loose in the natural history museum, and the second in which the cast - which includes museum scientists, a reporter, a cop and an FBI agent - is reunited to explore the tunnels and caverns beneath NYC in a mystery that ties in to the first one.
      Also Child's solo books, The Forgotten Room and Full Wolf Moon, about his character Dr. Jeremy Logan, a historian and enigmalogist.

      Richard Matheson's Hell House, one of the classic "parapsychologists investigating a haunted house" books. His A Stir of Echoes is also very good.

        As gonzo as it has become and as deservedly mixed a reputation it has gained... 'Supernatural' is legitimately a good show for inspiration imo. Especially the early seasons.

        Love or hate the show and how it developed, the early seasons focus on how the life of a hunter is self-destructive and dangerous and yet without the hunters who sacrifice their lives for little hope of any reward aside slivers of gratitude from the few people they can save... the sheer fact that they do what they do is all that stands between so many people and the darkness.
