    Tim Pratt - Briarpatch. Another awesome book from ChiZine.

    I might start some early Silverberg next. Fun, pulpy SF stuff.

    so glad I finished that one last night, JCO has more balls than a lot of the male writers I read, she is fearless in her choice of subject matter and unflinching in the handling of said subject matter, her books are like a slap in the face, they get your attention and wake you up and I've only read about six of her many, many books so far, I am in awe of JCO

    Not gonna lie, I looked it up. There's no way I could read it. I was cringing just reading the synopsis.

    I don't blame you, it's not for everyone and could be traumatizing to some but it's definitely, unfortunately, a timely book

    Had to stop reading Expiration Date. Over 200 pages in and it is extremely uninteresting. I rarely (I mean a handful of times only) have not finished a book, but I can't keep going. I think I will reread a King book now to refresh the pallet.

    Gene Wolfe - The Sword of the Lictor. Really cool fantasy and s.f. mishmash. Unlike a lot of fantasy books, the number of characters is low. Some cool settings, you never know what's next.

    Harlan Ellison - Spider Kiss. I had a few hours of peace and quiet and finished the entire book in one sitting.

    Started The Nightwalker by Thomas Tessier.

    Born to Fear, Interviews With Thomas Ligotti

    This is a really interesting read. Suggested reading for both writers and fans of horror. I'm not a fan of non-fiction in general (don't even buy the magazines with King's interviews) but Born to Fear works because Ligotti is such a an enigmatic and charismatic person. I'm fashionably late to all-things Ligotti but I find it super interesting that it was rumored he was a joint pen name of several writers, that he wins all these awards but never shows up to collect etc. It's basically the opposite of what a lot of writers I used to idolize are doing now on Twitter every day. I can dig a little mystique.

    GSD: Thanks for the high-five! Freshman year of high school I was not in honors English (that happened junior year after I buckled down sophomore year) so I did not get a chance to read it. However, I'm glad I didn't; I don't think I would have appreciated how special this book is. It's my new favorite and the one I think every single person could benefit from reading.

    Anyway, here's what I'm reading (and loving) now:



    Guy has so much passion, it jumps off the page.

    I just finished Insomnia and enjoyed it. I especially like slow burners but this never felt like one like I have heard people say about it.

    I am now onto The Eyes Of The Dragon and it is NOTHING like I thought it was going to be!
    They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they did.

    Yes.
    I didn't get around to reading it until a few years ago, and I'm so glad. Had I read it when I was younger, I probably wouldn't have appreciated it. For me, reading it was one of those rare cases where I actually grasped and fell in love with a classic. Great great book.

    After seeing this on some many business blogs as a must read, I decided to pick it up from the local library. I've read only the introduction and first chapter and I'm blown away. The man's genius jumps off the page and his voice rivals those of my favorite fiction writers.

    Still reading WWZ and Guru in You as well.
