Oh yeah!
Finally - "Bonehunters" has made it down-under.

Just finished Jeff Vandermeer's Shriek: An Afterword - really, really good.


"Shriek" will be next, but Vandermeer always makes me feel like I ate magic mushrooms. view post

Sorry, I do that all the time.....read a pile of books all at the same time then get them all jumbled up in my head....in fact, just last week I read about Tom Sawyer fighting Captian Ahab for the Ark of the Covenant on a plateau inhabited by dinosaurs.....quite riveting, actually, written by Sir Arthur Herman Twain. view post

Ahaha, just finished Shamanspace by S Aylett. Highly recomended.

Now attempting the Tao Te Ching. Interesting to note that reading it to children is an excellent way to put them to sleep <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post

Anyway. Now rereading Feist's Shadow of a Dark Queen. view post

Never enjoyed Catcher in the Rye.

Reading Spin by Robert Charles Wilson.

Just finished Grass by Sherri Tepper. What a wasted opportunity. At least the ice-queen Dworkin-feminist protagonist got to have hawt non-penetrative sex with a fox...oh wait. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> view post

Finished it. Got to say, I don't know why people complained to me that the ending was disappointing; I saw it coming, but I think it was the best ending possible, it really completed the book. view post
