Help me find suspense/horror books whose characters don't suck!

I just finished reading Scott Smith's "The Ruins" and loved it. I want to read more books like this (and his original "The Simple Plan"). Basically, I want all the suspense and horror, but the people have to seem real to me. I don't have to like them, I just want to know what they are thinking/feeling/fearing so that they aren't just numbers on some gorefest scoreboard. Bonus points if the author is semi-prolific, so I have choices for further reading. Help me, hive mind!

DC Dentist Recommendations?

I searched the archives and came up with two threads DC-wise, one recommending doctors in general and another with recommendations for cosmetic dentistry. The dentist I'm looking for is metro accessible (preferably NW DC) and has reasonable rates (completely out of pocket) for a standard cleaning and plaque removal/scaling. Thanks!

The Dangerous Book for Non-Boys

I've read "The Dangerous Book for Boys" and I generally love those kind of books (information about anything with guides on doing stuff). What other books are out there that are in a similar vein? I'm a 21-year-old girl but would rather not have a "girly" book.

Book or Web Recommendations for Using Gym Equipment

I've been a member of gym now for the last few months. I've gotten some training on some of the myriad of machines at the place, but I'd like to know more about using them in-depth. Can anyone recommend good books or web sites that focus on the various exercises you can do and/or exercise machines you can work out with at a gym? P.S.: am not much interested in a *lot* of heavy weight-lifting using barbels and such, just mostly the other devices.
