Sort of a holiday tradition in my family to read a lot. Part of our Festivus I guess?
Finished Hyperion by Dan Simmons last week. If you like sci-fi, it's a must read. Plenty written about it already and I think the movie comes out
2013? The reason I'm even mentioning it is if you start it and like it, buy the second book. Hyperion might as well end 'to be continued'...
Almost finished with Born to Lose by James G. Hollock. It's a true crime novel about Stanley Hoss. If you like the genre (I really don't), it's a
well researched and horrible tale. I read it because a lot of it happened right around where I grew up and I knew some of the people in it. If you're
from the Pittsburgh area and/or remember the terror this guy brought, it's worth reading .
Just started Marx's Ghost by Charles Derber. I heard the author on a radio interview and was intrigued enough to buy it. Just started it but if you
aren't familiar with Marx and are from the US, I think you'll be surprised. Also plenty of ATS type ideas in there, I'm looking forward to the rest.
