The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe. He's becoming one of my favorite writers.

I'm currently about half way through Chuck Yeager's autobiography. It's pretty good, if you're into WWII tales of derring-do, the early jet test pilots and all-around testosterone fueled hell raising.

I'm enjoying it immensely.

I'm reading "Pornified" by Pamela Paul. It's not bad so far, but I'm barely into it.

I am currently reading three books (alternating between them):

1) "Treason" by Ann Coulter- my grandfather loaned it to me, and I promised him I would read it. It is taking me forever because I really really can't stand that woman, and reading her book (even with the open mind I attempted to read it with) is pure mental torture.

2) The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice- realized I never finished it back when I was in high school, so I am rereading it to finish it.

3) Lost Scriptures- a book about the Dead Sea Scrolls, Gospel of Mary, etc. and the other books that didn't make the cut to get into the Bible. Pretty interesting book.

But I did take a break from all of them to read the new National Geographic yesterday... Indonesian volcanoes, Indian art, mountain gorillas... got so excited I had to read it right then and there!!

What can I say... I am a nerd. And I love to read.

Just finished rereading the Dying earth series by Jack Vance. Was in the mood for a little escapism and Vance can really paint a picture in my mind.

Started TH1RTE3N by Richard Morgan a few nights ago.

Always many magazines going. Lets see, Guns, knifes, mountain bikes,motorcycles, Time, Ntl. Geo, Stereophile to name a few. I still like toys

I just finished Half The Blood In Brooklyn by Charlie Huston. If you don't know him, check him out. He's a pulp writer (www.pulpnoir.com) and he's got two series out, one about a vampyre named Joe Pitt and another about a guy named Henry Thompson. All are awesome, fast, fun reads.

Just started reading Germ by Lipaurillo. He's another author I think most of the conspiracy folks would love. His most recent book involves high tech weapons, gaming and survivalists. Germ is about some kind of gov. made virus that is dna specific (at least that's what I've gathered from the few chapters I've read so far).

There's another book I read a few months back that I think y'all would love, if you have the stomach for it - Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis. It's about a down on his luck detective who is hired to locate some secret gov't book and he winds up in some of the most depraved, disgusting sex clubs (godzilla porn fetishes?) among other horrific locations.

I am currently reading two books.
The first book, co-authored by Siegelbaum and Sokolov, is titled:"Stalinism As A Way Of Life," and it consists of English translations of 157 documents depicting life in the USSR under Stalin, along with a commentary on each of the documents in question.
The second book, by Jeremy Bowen, is titled:"Six Days:How The 1967 War Shaped The Middle East." What is most fascinating about this book is a short 11 page section that covers the Isreali attack on the USS Liberty and the heated discussion within the Johnson Administration over whether this was a 'terrible' accident or an unprovoked attack attack. For anyone else on BTS/ATS who has the book or manages to get a copy, the section on the USS Liberty runs from page 257 to 267.

I am also reading a volume of some of the collected works of H.P. Lovecraft, one of the greatest scince fiction/horror writers this country has ever produced. A story of his I just finished is titled "The Outsider." Several short stories of his have been turned into feature length films. "The Dunwhich Horror' and 'Reanimator' are but two of his stories to recieve such treatment from Hollywood.

I just started reading the Illiad for the first time. I'll be reading the Odyssey after that. I bought myself a nice leather bound set for christmas, and since i never read them in high school like i was supposed to i decided perhaps I should get around to it.

The Illiad and The Odyssey are both great books from antiquity. I've read both. Not too long ago I finished reading Stephen Mitchell's translation of Gilgamesh, another classic of antiquity from the Sumerian Empire, which predates the Egyptian Dynasty's.
