    I read, a lot.
    As in several books at once.
    Books at work, books at home, books in transit.

    The Jackal of Nar - John Marco
    [ Fantasy ] Good but not fast and easy.

    Freaks & Fire - J. Dee Hill
    [ non-fiction ] Nice collection about the underground circus movement.

    I Am A Strange Loop - Douglas Hofstader
    [ non-fiction ] "What do we mean when we say 'I' ? " - Just started it, looks good.

    Gasoline - Gregory Corso
    [ poetry ] - also just started, need to spend some time with it.

    The Voice at 3:00 A.M. - Charles Simic
    [ poetry ] - I like Simic's voice, style and imagery.

    England's Dreaming - Jon Savage
    [ non-fiction ] A very detailed look at Malcolm McClaren and The Sex Pistols.

    I've got a few books on the table that I'm reading right now, or that I was reading. The Case of Charles Dexter Ward by H.P. Lovecraft being one that's in front of me right now, The League of Extrodinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier by Alan Moore, Thud! by Terry Pratchett, and the Darby O'Gill stories by Hermine Templeton Kavanagh.

    Just finished the excellent Lamb by Christopher Moore (The Gospel According to Christ's Childhood Friend Biff)

    Now reading a book about the Voynich Manuscript, which is pretty interesting so far. I heard of it years ago, and have been meaning to read more about it.

    Ah I'm reading far too many books at the moment, the joy of insomnia. *winks*

    Reading the David Eddings Malloreon series. On book four, Sorceress of Darshiva. Fairly light readable stuff.

    Also re-reading the Wheel of Time series, because yes I am that much of a masochist. *chuckles* On book nine, Winter's Heart - Robert Jordan. Mmmmm, such a good story.

    What else.... Oh Tad Williams - Shadowmarch and
    James Clemens - Hinterland.

    *grins* Are we noticing a theme here? Reading a couple of interesting books that aren't fantasy too. The one grabbing me most at the moment is "The Three Christs of Ypsilanti" by Milton Rokeach, all about 3 chronically mentally ill patients in the 1950s brought together in Ypsilanti hospital, who all believed they were Jesus. The book talks about the interactions between the men and staff, as they got to know each other and each defended their own personal identity.

    Recently finished Gibson's Sprawl trilogy again. By the next time I should have it memorized. I'm determined to film a Lord-of-the-Rings-scale adaptation before I die. Currently about to wrap up Mr. Colbert's chaotic masterpiece. Or is it Chaotic Neutral? Next up - I'm torn between dancing through Watchmen again, and an Andrew Vachss novel picked from a hat. I'm in a very gritty mood.

    Just finished reading Warren's recommendation of Space Prison by Tom Godwin. Very interesting read, and quite entertaining.

    Munun: I need to pick up all 3 books. I saw nightwatch and loved it. I have a friend that was a Russian translator in the 80's so we watched it in russian the second time. Very excellent both ways...

    Just finished Neil Gaimon's Marvel 1602 but have eventually managed to get hold of CJ Cherryh's Explorer the last in the second Foreigner series - if my memory serves me correctly as all my books are stored away in boxes at present (published in the States in 2003 but never over here as far as I can see - thanks to Borders for shipping it in)
