Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis.

Fantastic book - so beautifully twisted.

Trix is my hero. It's been a while since I had a crush on a literary character...

Haven't started it yet, but Plainsong by Kent Haruf. And I'm finishing up The Worst Journey In The World by Apsley Cherry-Garrard. It's the story of the 1910-1913 Terra Nova expedition to Antarctica led by Captain Robert Scott, as told by a member of the expedition himself. Wonderful book. Read it if you have the time.

Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker

basically it's about a demon trapped in the book, speaking directly to you, requesting that you burn the book throughout as he tells his story.

like the concept.

pretty good book. the constant "burn this book" is a riot.

wyrde, crooked little vein is one of the most twisted books I've ever read. there's another one you might like, I'll need to find it at home and get the name (if it's still there). it runs in a similarly crazy pattern.

"I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist"
By Noram Geisler & Frank Turek


The title says it all. Highly recommended to both sides of the debate. Much food for thought.

I am also reading:

"Brother Odd" by Dean Koontz

I really like this series of books about Odd Thomas but I really wish Koontz would get back to finishing the stories that began in "Fear Nothing" and continued in "Sieze The Night"; If you have not read these books, I urge to check them out. The characters of Christopher Snow and his friends are the most likeable and believable bunch that Koontz ever invented. He has stated on more than one occasion that he will finish the series; I just wish he would get on with it, already!

I am currently reading Hell To Pay By: Simon R. Green
So far so good, it's the second one in a series, and the first one was well written.

House to House by David Bellavia. It's about a US army staff sergeant on his time leading a squad on the ground in Fallujah, Iraq.

It's a brutal account of house clearing operations.

Tax season is upon me so I don't get much time to read these days. I've got Duma Key on the nightstand. King is perfect in short bursts. SO far it's pretty good. Slower paced than his stuff usually is but still entertaining.

The Ghost War by Alex Berenson is all queued up

I'm currently about halfway through Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton: The Secret Agent Who Made the Pilgrimage to Mecca, Discovered the Kama Sutra and Brought the Arabian Nights to the West, for the second time. I read it a good 20 years ago. One of the most interesting lives ever lived.

If you've ever seen Mountains of the Moon, it was about Captain Burton's search for the source of the Nile. A good and underrated, underappreciated film, I think.

I first became aware of Burton when I read Philip Jose Farmer's sci-fi classic Riverworld series where he's a fictional character, along with Mark Twain, King John, Motzart, Tom Mix, Jack London... It's a ripper.
