Close to finishing Rob Holdstock's Iron Grail; second in his Merlin Codex.

Holdstock is highly recommended for fantasy fans.

Halfway through:
Brimstone by Preston/Child


Thanks for the Midge Ure suggestion, numanoid.

I didn't know he'd written an autobiog. I'll have to track that one down..

Finishing up "The Spy Who Came in From the Cold". Nothing like what I expected, but pretty good.

Next up is "Batman: Long Halloween" and "Chasing the Dime" by Michael Connelly. Never read Connelly before.

Michael Connelly is a great writer, but Chasing the Dime is a stand alone that is ok but not great. After reading that I would suggest starting with his Harry Bosch series and read Black Echo. If you don't feel like getting hooked into a series, Blood Work and The Poet would be excellant reads to try. You won't regret it!

Currently reading 'Desperation' by Stephen King. I'm a couple of hundred pages into it, and it's quite good (so far).

    I'm about 1/3 of the way through The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass. I started this series about 4 years ago, and one day I will finish it.
