Re-read "The White People," by Arthur Machen and "Count Magnus" by MR James, two of the greatest horror stories.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

So:  Big Sleep was great.  Just as good as the movie, but very different.  I like the Thin Man movie better than the book.  Maybe because I have a man crush on William Powell and a real crush on Myrna Loy.

Some geography and history.

'Evil isn't the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as evil, maybe more so, and it's a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against stupid. That might actually make a difference.'~Harry Dresden
