1. The Stand (unabridged) by Stephen King.
2. The Counter-Creationism Handbook by Mark Isaak
[a collection of over 400 argument areas that occur in creationism-evolutionism debate, and a highlight of what scientific evidence exists that conflicts with creationism along with all the references to the actual books/studies/papers -- so it is actually a very very useful book, regardless of which side you are on!]"Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

Just finished Tolkien's Children of Hurin, prior to that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and am currently working through four C.S. Lewis titles in a single volume. I've done with Surprised by Joy and am now partway through Reflections on the Psalms. Before my recent Rowling jag I read Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 for the first time, which makes me somewhat backward in that regard.

The Collected Stories of Vernor Vinge - Vernor Vinge
The Crack in Space - Philip K. Dick
The Darkness that Comes Before - R. Scott Bakker
Troublemakers - Harlan Ellison
The Bakker book is a bit of a headache because after a wonderful opening, he ditches character development for a spew of political and geographic names and configurations that all have ambiguous personalities. I'm a little pissed because it started off so strong. Hopefully he quits the drive-by tagging and gives the reader a chance to look around. Right now, I'm not enjoying his linguistic orgy that really serves no purpose so far other than for him being able to say his fictitious language database trumps Tolkien's. Big #(&$%#ing deal.
The other books continue to blow my hair back.

I don't read fiction when I'm writing my own, to avoid unintentional bleed-through. But when I was young, I read science fiction almost exclusively. Now I can't remember most of what I read, which was the intention, actually, bizarre as it sounds. But seeing Philip K. Dick's name, in particular, brought back some fond (if paranoid!) memories. Schizophrenia at its phantasmagoric best!

I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.
