Ilium for me as well... I read 4 pages before bed last night, and that's all I've gotten done so far... hopefully I can at least jog my memory with a partial reread and take some part in the discussion, though ideally I'd be able to reread it all....

And, I'm sort of reading Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield, about the battle of Thermopylae. Read 5 pages of that one while eating my lunch today....

School sure does screw up my reading schedule <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Though, it does bring about the interesting experience of simultaneously reading Ilium and the Iliad. view post

Gates of Fire is a very good historical fiction read. I think it should appeal to most fantasy readers, especially fans of Steven Erikson.

As for reading Ilium and the Iliad at the same time, well, that should be interesting if nothing else. view post

I'm going to start reading Rhys Hughes's The New Universal History of Infamy tonight at work, followed by Tim Pratt's Little Gods. Both are under 200 pages, so I should finish both tonight or tomorrow at the latest. Then I'll read the F. Brett Cox and Andy Duncan edited Crossroads: Tales of the Southern Literary Fantastic and hopefully complete a re-read of Ilium by Monday morning. view post

Finding myself more than a little fond of Martin after making my way through his A Song Of Ice And Fire series, I've started in on another of his books, Windhaven, while waiting for him to wrap up A Feast Of Crows. And after that, I have Terry Brooks' Jarka Ruus waiting to be read on my bedside table. view post

I'm ejoying Tannequil thus far, I hope it keeps this pace, I thought the book itself was kinda small though..... but meh don't really matter that much. view post


Now Reading... posted 29 October 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow Reading... by drosdelnoch, Subdidact

I've finished Field of Swords and now started the Pride of Carthage novel, its starting out quite well so will let you know how it develops. Other than that I'll be on the Thackery book of Discredited diseases which is really a bathroom book, from what Ive seen so far of it its quite an interesting novel (edited by VanderMeer). Then Im on to the Cecilia Dart Thorton book Iron Tree book one of The Crowthistle Chronicles. view post
