I'm currently reading Robert Trivers' new book "The Folly of Fools: The Logic of Deceit and Self-Deception in Human Life".

I recently came across a nice site by the way that provides daily updates of new popular science books: twitter.com...

I'll put in another vote for Robert Anton Wilson, particularly Prometheus Rising.

Israel Regardie for the occult

Lovecraft for horror

The Kybalion for hermeticism

And here's a link for free e-books - credit goes to Lisa2012 for this:

I just finished "Sun of the Sleepless" by Patrick Horne and really enjoyed it. I'm really into the whole 'Vril Society' thing and it prompted me to finally join ATS to join in some threads after a long time of lurking but I haven't found any recent ones so I'm lucked out! What is weird is that some of the stuff predicted in the novel seem to have come true, unless he managed to write a whole novel and get published in just a couple of months! It is a good conspiracy theory type of book all about a secret society and technology developed during WWII so I guess some other folks on here would enjoy it too

I also enjoyed "SS Brotherhood of the Bell" by Joseph Farrell which is also a good conspiracy read but non-fiction. It is all about the Nazi Bell which may have been used to develop propulsiion for aircraft that could be mistaken for ufos. Some of it gets really technical which admittedly went over my head but it is interesting anyway.

What are some books you'd recommend I read? I don't have nearly the collection I once had and I'd thought I'd get some suggestions. I'm trying to self-educate myself. I'm currently reading 'The Science Fiction of Edgar Allen Poe', being the only book I have left, besides 'Alcoholics Anonymous'.
I thought I'd pick up 'Lies My Teacher Told Me' by James Loewen, and 'Your Be Lied to' by Russ Kick, suggested by a comedian I hold in high regard.


Anyways, I don't care about the subject matter, I'll check it out. Thanks in advance!

Any book by Christopher Dunn

A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.

Enders Saga by Orson Scott Card.

Abarat by Clive Barker.

The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks.

The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson.

The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss.


These are only the best of the best that I've read. I'm very picky about books. And most of these are on an equal playing field. Abarat is a bit more fluff than the rest, but it's still good. I looked over mistborn and the kingkiller chronicles for months thinking they'd suck, but they are both better than many MANY fantasy books I've read.

Check 'em out. Seriously.

The below book was sent to me from admin @ humanmetamorphosis . com

And, as of yet being unable to post a new thread, I found this thread to add this book to.
I have only read 23 pages so far but, have found it very interesting.
It seems to Definitely be a book many ATS'ers will appreciate.

What is the Program?

Your response certainly sets the bar for intelligent commentary about the book, this is for sure.

Don Quixote by Cervantes. The Nobel Prize got it right when they voted it "Greatest Book of All Time". Get the translation by Walter Starkie if you don't read Spanish.

Happy reading.
