Sins of Scripture : ok so far, don't agree with some of things he had to say.

Invincible TPB vols 2 - 4: Comic about a boy with super powers. Its different and I like that it is different.

Probably won't start anything else until after the next harry potter book comes out.

Just finished Pale Blue Dot from Carl Sagan, very interesting read. My first Sagan book.

Now I am about to start Neuromancer by William Gibson.

I'm currently reading...

Big Bossoms and Square Jaws - The Biography of Russ Meyer, King of the Sex Films
Written by Jimmy McDonough and released by Crown Publishers last week.

So far it's an excellent read and a very interesting look at one of America's most under-rated filmmakers. I understand that Meyer's work is not for everyone, but the guy really knew what he was doing.
And the Roger Ebert stories are really fun to read about.

In the Dark is great. I recently had a mini-Laymon marathon when I read Island, The Stake and The Travelling Vampire Show back-to-back-to-back. Laymon is one of the best in the genre.

I'm still reading Deadhouse Gates by Steven Erikson.

I read The Historian last week and would be interested to know what you think of it, Scarecrow and Geofferson.

There's a discussion here about it...

Folks looking for a horror book or for "The Dracula Code" might not like it.
