I don't enjoy double posting, but no one else seems to have said anything in a while.

Finished Dan Simmons' Hyperion, on to the sequel Fall of Hyperion.
Seriously recommended for any SF reader, I'm astonished it took me this long to discover them.

Reading The Burning Soul by John Connolly at the moment.

Thought I'd take a break from the 40K universe. And Dean Koontz.

But not for long...

"The Affair" by Lee Child.

A Reacher novel!

I'm thrilled that there is a Jack Reacher movie coming out soon. Not thrilled that they cast Tom Cruise to portray him. Eddie Mclintock is the clear choice for JR IMO.

Man, I went batsheet insane today. I ended up buying six novels from my local Games Workshop. It felt like I stormed in there and pillaged the joint.

Gosh, what did I pick up? Ah, that's right. Architect of Fate, The Emperor's Gift, and four Horus Heresy novels, The Primarchs, Fear to Tread, Shadows of Treachery, and Angel Exterminatus.

The problem now is, where should I start? lol I'm thinking Angel Exterminatus, 'cause I can't seem to get enough of the Horus Heresy. Plus it'd be nice to see Perturabo in action.

I've mostly been reading books for research, but on my bedside table I have Yann Martel's Life of Pi and Joe Sacco's Palestine.

That book is bloody brilliant! Neil Gaiman at his best (in prose).

Just remembered that one of the things I was reading recently is Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey's Comic Book History of Comics. Really entertaining and enlightening.
Nice to see McCloud's (among others) example being followed by other writers and artists.

Back in Italy, so I'm catching up on PK.
Then I'll move to Antonio Tabucchi - Sostiene Pereira.

(I'm getting quite a few books for the holidays, so I'll be reading more then!)
