My favorites were The Store, The Mailman and The Association.  Also loved his short story set The Collection. My least favorite was The Ignored.

I second recommendations for The Mailman, The Summoning, and The Collection (short stories).  I also recently read The Town and loved it.

Bentley is my favorite author. He's notorious for having endings that fall a little short of the rest of the books. Having said that, I recommend Dispatch, The Mailman, The Association, The Policy and The Store as his best work!

The Resort is one of my favorites.  I also liked The Summoning, The Return and a few others (can't remember the names).  So far, the only one I didn't like was The Store.

I just finished The House and The Return by Bentley Little  

Both are on my bookshelf.

I liked The Ignored and The House -- The Resort and The Academy, not so much. (ooh, charter schools are scaaaaaary!)

I think it's hilarious that Automated Interface shows up in just about all of his books. Was being a tech writer really that traumatizing?

Bentley Little is one of my favorite authors! It's great to see other people discussing his work. It's hard to pick a favorite though. The Association was the first one I ever read. But The Store or The Resort is a close second.

When he hits there's no one better, but when he misses it can hurt... lol. I liked The Association as well, also loved The Collection (short stories), The Store and The Ignored.

Just read The Walking and loved it right up to the end.  The end kind of disappointed me.  Trying to get my hands on The Mailman.  I heard alot of good things about that one.

I've read so many of his older books that I can't even keep them straight. Lol. I would love to re-connect with his works with some of the newer stuff.

Just read The Store and I have to say, Bentley Little is the master of pissing me off, not in a bad way, though. I always get so angry when I read his stuff. First with The Association and now with The Store. No one can write a Big Bad that gets under my skin quite the way he does.
