A fast fun zombie novel where the characters are not genre-blind (along the same lines as Zombieland)
Free on amazon as well...

Currently re-reading Lawrence Block's Eight Million Ways To Die, a seminal Matthew Scudder novel:



Next up is this massive tome, which I can't wait to dive into:

Read Sex Lives of the Gods. The story had a cool premise, but the resolution was just bad.

Started Innocents Abroad.

Re: What are you reading? (November 2013)



I love Charles Bukowski and Fante predates him by many years - this title also features an introduction by Bukowski, so why wouldn't I take a look? I also love stories about Los Angeles in the early years.

I like the Zombie Survival Guide, but I'm really enjoying World War Z. I'm about 30% into it right now. Max Brooks has one heck of an imagination.

Re: What are you reading? (November 2013)

My commute has changed a little over the last month or so which has led to a marked dip in my reading time.

As soon as I have finished the remaining section of "Turbulence" I expect to begin Gwyneth Jones' "Bold As Love".
