Koontz did okay recently with From the Corner of His Eye and Odd Thomas. But he threw in a few clunkers recently, too. Watchers will always be on my favorite list.

A few authors I can't wait for anything new from are

Michael Connelly
Harlen Coben
Elizabeth George
You liked Odd Thomas, Tre? I wasn't so keen on that one.

Watchers is great. That was one of the first Koontz books I read. I don't know why but Dragon Tears is my favorite Koontz book. It's not a normal Koontz favorite for most.
