Summer? What's that? S'posed to warm up this weekend, but we still have snow cover, total snow cover, but I put an "X" on the calendar and I'll call this weekend "summer" in case in the event that we somehow skip the season.
I would give the Mist a read for the summer. To me it has a summer feel to it.
Last summer after a bad thunderstorm, we lost electricity for two days....and I could not help but to think of this story!
haunted speaks true...'the stand' feels all sorta summery...
same with 'firestarter', ''the long walk', 'the running man', and Dt 1-2-3-and 4, and, oddly, 'geralds game' ...i'd also second the idea of short stories...all, i think, because all these have a sort of cinematic, b-movie type feel that epitomizes summer thrills
...even tho i've only read it once (so far) i can see UTD as that, too
