    How'd you like Gaiman's Neverwhere?.. I read that one quite awhile back and loved it, it was my introduction to 'urban fantasy' which I still seek out today. If you enjoyed Neverwhere, you might try Abarat; Days of Magic, Nights of War, by Clive Barker.

    I really liked it. I have always been a bit dubious of Urban Fantasy as many books of that genre are geared toward a younger audience, and while I have been known to read the occasional YA novel, there is a lot of garbage there too. But I love Gaiman. He has such a fantastic imagination. I love the mix of the bizarre and the dark that he infuses into his books.

    I will look into those other books. I do like Clive Barker.

    I'm always impressed with how much you read. And good stuff too! Did you enjoy Yeats' poetry?

    I put up my 2014 reads on my personal blog but not on Lit Net yet.

    Yes, I loved his collection of poems.
