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
I dunno. King definately took a nosedive in recent years, but there are still some good stories there. "The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon" wasn't bad. "Everthing's Eventual" (his latest short fiction collection) had some great stuff. And, of course, the finale to the "Dark Tower" series, "The Dark Tower." I completely enjoyed that book. I won't say it's the best of the series because it'e the most recent on of the series I've read and it was months after "Song of Susannah" (and any of the other), but while I was reading it, it went everywhere with me. Literally, everywhere. I could not put that book down!

Koontz also has some good reading in his recent catalogue. I really enjoyed the "Moonlight Bay" books, "Sieze the Night" and "Fear Nothing." I'm currently reading "The Taking" (came out after "Odd Thomas"). I'll let you all know how it is.
