Still working my way through rereading A Song of Fire and Ice (I'm mostly done with Clash of Kings) in preparation for actually reading A Feast For Crows.

I just picked up the third Malazan by Erikson and the second and third Taltos collections by Brust (and come to think of it, I still have the most recent Wheel of Time to read), but I may need a break from fantasy by the time I finish with Martin.

As of this morning, I've been reading Iain M Bank's "The Algebraist". It is science fiction but apparently not one of The Culture books.

Currently reading:


Preston & Child - Dance of Death. Read it when it first came out in the summer, rereading it now that it's in paperback...AWESOME book.


Al Franken - The Truth...with Jokes. So far, very funny.


Chris Elliott - Shroud of the Thwacker. Any fans of Chris Elliott should definitely seek this book out...so far it's hilarious...not brilliant, but very silly and fun.

Just finished Philip Roth's The Plot Against America (Lindbergh defeats Roosevelt in 1940 election and Nazi influence gets a foothold in the U.S.).

Playing catch-up, and finally reading The Devil In The White City.

It's always cool to see Brian Keene pop up on these reading lists.
His next one from Leisure will be out in May and if you liked what he did with zombies wait till you see what he does with giant worms. I wish they had stayed with the limited edition title Earthworm Gods though.

Heard an interview with Vince Flynn a while back and his books were compared to "24" - I'm in. Got this from the library, but haven't read it yet.

I've long been a fan of his and thought his Daddy's Boy was a really funny read. Recently, I listened to a podcast that had a great interview with him and he read the first paragraph of Thwacker - I have to get this book! I'll likely order it from Amazon within the next few days.
