that's cool that we have so much in common. i don't know the authors you mentioned except koontz, but one of my favorite books is a book that's read in high school, i think. "the perks of being a wallflower." really sweet story with lots of references to great music.
my morbid curiosity for forensics started with serial killers. and it's that same fascination you mentioned about people who have the ability to be cruel for cruelty's sake. i totally want to be a csi!
