A poll of sorts...

I recently finished Freda Warrington's THE OBSIDIAN TOWER, final part in a most excellent fantasy series which was well worth it. I always hate when I end a good book as I'd have loved to have stayed with these characters a lot longer, even if it had already been some 2100 pages over the 3 books. Here's looking forward to Freda's next book!

I'm currently reading Caitlín R. Kiernan's FROM WEIRD AND DISTANT SHORES. It's a small-press short story collection which collects all her short stories written for Other World anthologies, so some stuff written for White Wolf anthos and one written for a Sandman/Dreaming themed anthology. So far so excellent... of course.

The "To Read" stack contains a lot of books, as always. Next up will most likely be Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's GOOD OMENS. And there's also the first 3 Dame Darcy MEAT CAKE comics that I picked up on eBay... and about a zillion other things.

What's everyone else reading (if anything)?

SANDMAN: BOOK OF DREAMS? There's a story by Caitlín R. Kiernan in that incidentally, one that is reprinted in the FROM WEIRD AND DISTANT SHORES collection of hers I'm reading now.

"Good Omens" is a riot! If you haven't already read it, you'll love it.

I just finished reading The Forest by Edward Rutherford. In the style of his earlier works, Sarum and London, it follows several families (living in the New Forest of southern England) down through the ages. If you like historical fiction, his books are some of the best.

I just finished Jack the Ripper: The First American Serial Killer. It was a little dry but an interesting thesis. I just put down Tin Drum, haven't really gotten into it. Herodotus is on my nightstand.

I've heard about that book, I believe Poppy Z. Brite really enjoyed that book along with some other people on another forum. There's also another 2 books in that 'series' about the Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz (iirc) which I've heard is also quite good, and a Jack The Ripper one which the reviews were less favourable about.

"Warlock" by Wilbur Smith
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0312278233/102-1980336-4919315

Picked it up in a local bookstore. Reads quite fast, though the only interesting point about it so far is it's historical value: a lot of details of the ancient Egypt culture.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about the subject to confirm the facts, but I'll take them for truth for now.

Hi,

New around here, so this seems as good a place as any to start. :)

Currently or recently read;

The Malady of Death by Marguerite Duras (for for 100th time)
The Immoralist by Andre Gide
The Children's Bach by Helen Garner
The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice (again)
Identity by Milan Kundera

A slightly different reading selection from the others I've read posted. *shrug* :)

I am accused. I dream of massacres.
I am a garden of black and red agonies.
And now the world conceives its end and runs toward it, arms held out in love.
It is a love of death that sickens everything.
I lose life after life. The dark earth drinks them.

Hi and welcome!

Well, I was interested in what people were reading, whatever it was.

I finally finished reading Caitlín R. Kiernan's FROM WEIRD AND DISTANT SHORES this afternoon and I'll put up a review in a seperate thread.

Lilith - next up, GOOD OMENS.

Currently I'm making my way through Doctor Mirabilis by James Blish. I'm on a bit of an old science-fiction kick lately.

After having kicked myself out of a literarily lazy phase i decided to finish off the book i had started a while ago, that is to say Silverheart my Michael Moorecock and Storm Constantine, having finished that i'm now reading a famous Phillip K Dick Novel (after having read two of his other books, Ubik and the Zap Gun ) from which Bladerunner was developped, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?". I'm also reading some of H.p. Lovecraft's short stories.
