Currently The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco[/quote:16t79qpy]
How are you finding The Name of the Rose? I am excited to read Foucault's Pendulum next year. It's been on my to-read list for too long now.

My theme for all my fiction for 2004 was all-Canadian authors, which is one of the reasons I found The Darkness That Comes Before in the first place, as well as Michel Basilières's Black Bird, Margaret Atwood's Oryx & Crake, Ronald Wright's A Scientific Romance, Douglas Glover's Elle, John Gould's Kilter: 55 Fictions, and others.

Currently reading:

Robert Bruce — Astral Dynamics: A NEW Approach to Out-of-Body Experience

Storm Constantine — Wraeththu

Thomas T. K. Zung — Buckminster Fuller: Anthology for the New Millennium

William Lidwell, Kritina Holden, Jill Butler — Universal Principles of Design: A Cross-Disciplinary Reference view post

I'll let you know as soon as I finish it <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> but I like it about halfway thru.

Foucalt's Pendulum was interesting. A good book but perhaps a tad bit long. view post

White Gold Wielder-Donaldson. view post


Now Reading... posted 27 December 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow Reading... by Annabel, Peralogue

Currently reading (in bits and pieces depending on how the spirit moves me):

Lucky Jim - Martin Amis
Prayer of the Night Shepherd - Phil Rickman
Monument - Ian Graham
King Rat - China Mieville

I am thoroughly enjoying everything by Phil Rickman. For those of you who want to read a supernatural, thriller/mystery set in the isolated British countryside and featuring a chain-smoking, ex-punk, female Anglican vicar/exorcist (with new-age but sarcastic and clever teenage daughter), try Rickman. The series explores everything from ley lines to possession. And, if you enjoyed the Wicker Man, you have to read at least the first book. view post

The Algebraist by Ian Banks.

Have to say I am disappointed with it so far. Dull and uninvolving, far below his usual very high standard. view post


Now Reading... posted 06 January 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow Reading... by neongrey, Peralogue

I just picked up Kushiel's Dart, by Jacqueline Carey yesterday. About all I can say for it is that it's decidedly... meh. If I weren't up to my neck in library fees, I'd borrow, but now pay for the next two. As it stands, I'll probably buy them at some point, after I finish off buying other series I'm catching. view post
