I'm reading Flowers for Algernon for the first time in many years. Also reading Pandemic, a fairly decent bio-terror thriller.

Demille has long been one of my favorites. Plum Island and Lions Game were great reads as well. His characters are always very interesting with many layers and a fine wit. Gold Coast, Word of Honor, and Generals Daughter are also among my favorites of his.

I'm about to read "MEG".

It's a Jaws rip off only the shark isn't a Great White, it's apparently a Megaladon which is the Great White's larger ancient cousin. After "MEG" I may start "The Trench" which is a sequel.

I just started DisneyWar this weekend and I've just gotten to the section where it's talking about the EuroDisney failure. It's a good read so far.

Just finished Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas... excellent read.

Now I'm working my way through the Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy... almost done. I'll probably finish the series before the movie.

I just finished up Slaughterhouse Five, and now I've got to get back to more academic reading for school. I had forgotten how nice it was to read for pleasure b/c I've been doing so much forced reading lately. I'm hoping to get back to leisure reading soon.

I'm in "full geek mode" as my wife calls it. I just finished reading the first Star Wars Clone Wars novel "Shatterpoint" last week. This week I've started the next one, "The Cestus Deception". I figure if the movies won't cover the Clone Wars, I'll read the novels.

I've been recently getting into Demille too. In fact, I just today started The Lion's Game with John Corey.

Also just finished Midnight Mass by F. Paul Wilson, of Repairman Jack fame. Jack wasn't in that one though, just vampires.

I've been meaning to read some F. Paul Wilson and start the Repairman Jack series. I've heard only good words.

I just finished Don DeLillo's Mao II and now I'm trying to find a new novel to start. Until I do I'm re-reading my collection of Hemingway's short stories.
