Paul McCartney Song List

Paul McCartney Song List
By Michael McCarty

Sunday December 3rd, 1989

Paul McCartney & his band played Rosemont Horizon arena near Chicago (now called the Allstate Arena … yuck).

I got great seats to the show. Maybe 15 rows back near the side of the stage. I took my then girlfriend Cindy (now wife), her sister and her friend to the show… it was the first time I told my wife I loved her, but the music was very loud, and all she said was “WHAT?”

Here is the set list

Ho-Ho-Horror! Stocking-Stuffers For Your Horror Fans

HO-HO-HORROR! Stock-Sutffers For Your Horror Fans (Updated)
By Michael McCarty

Looking for stocking stuffers for fans of horror and science fiction on your Christmas list? It doesn’t matter if they have been naughty or nice, Michael McCarty books (kindle, nook or trade paperbacks) make great gifties…

bad-santa

But before I get to that list …. here are a recommendation of other authors. .. yes, I do read other authors besides myself.

Great buys for the Holiday Season

1. To The Vanishing Point By Alan Dean Foster.
Frank Sonderberg rents an RV to take his family on a vacation across the desert to go to Las Vegas. On the way, the pick up this beautiful hitchhiker and singer named Mouse and the trip goes to Hell … literary, getting chased by hideous monsters, encounter a demonic gas station, fire breathing cops and ax-wielding rats. Summer vacations don’t get better than this…

It was a tremendous honor that Alan Dean Foster wrote the introduction to my book MODERN MYTHMAKERS …

I also did an interview blog with Mr. Foster and here is the link:

2. Duma Key by Stephen King

Of all Stephen King’s book, this is just one of the best to read during the summer. I can explain more about this book, but I have already written this blog about the book and the link is here:

https://monstermikeyaauthor.wordpress.com/2019/03/01/duma-key-by-stephen-kingbook-review/

3. Sparrow Rock by Nate Kenyon

I really like Nate Kenyon’s Bloodstone, The Bone Factory and The Reach books. But Sparrow Rock is one of my favorites. The story-line is about six teenagers who break in and party in a bomb shelter. Unbeknownst to the teens, the world is about to end very soon. An exciting and creepy page-turner.

4. Island by Richard Laymon

Several of Laymon’s books are great summer reads including: Funland, The Stake, Bite, The Lake, Resurrection Dreams. Of all those terrific terror reads, my favorite has to be Island to be read at the beach with a beverage of your choice.

You ask why …. read this blog and find out why:

https://monstermikeyaauthor.wordpress.com/2019/05/01/island-by-richard-laymon-book-review/

5. Dog Days by Joe McKinney

I had a hard time for the last book on the list. I was thinking of having Mark McLaughlin’s Horror & Abominations (co-written with Michael Sheehan Jr…. but I will write a longer review of that later). Also I was thinking of Joe Hill’s collection Strange Weather, but I might do a review of that later too. The same with Bentley Little’s The Resort.

So I decided on Dog Days by Joe McKinney. This book won a Bram Stoker for YA Novel and it well deserved to win. It is also a killer book to read during the summer month, hot and sticky and full of mystery … just like summer.

I am not going to say much about the book, because once I start talking or writing about it, I just can’t stop. Set in 1983 in the burbs of Houston, a hurricane rocks the community … not only bringing floodwaters and strong winds … but a supernatural killer in the swamp lands of Clear Lake.

It is a brilliant, brilliant book
