Hi. Thanks for adding me as a friend. Indeed a read a few books by Clive Barker. They can be quite brutal but I still find them more interesting and less predictable than your average Stephen King book. Also he is a bit more into H.P. Lovecraft which I always like.
Take care, Jonas
HI, Based on our books in common, can I recommend a couple? THe first is, The Alchemist. I kinda group it with Illusions & Jonathan Livingston Seagull. A fable-like, could be true, lessons of life kinda book. The second (and more of a long shot) is Fire From WIthin by Carlos Castaneda. More metaphysical but also dealing with seeking the answer to "How does the world really work?"

Greetings and thanks for the request. In reference to your question concerning the Foundation, "Is it as good as I've heard .......?" can only be answered by yourself. I WILL add my thumbs up to the whole trilogy, but I've found very few Asimov titles ([math books])(hated math) that I didn't like.
