    I just finished several "Repairman Jack" novels that I had fallen behind on ( it's a series ) by F. Paul Wilson. I am now reasonably "up to date".
    I read two bios of Frank Zappa, one being partly an auto-bio, with a ghost writer involved.
    I read "The White Castle" and will soon start "My Name is Red" ( read ) that was recommended to me by a person on INTPC. They are translations from the original Turkish - Orhan Pamuk.
    I read a suspense novel called "Devil's Peak" by Deon Meyer, set in Cape Town, South Africa. I like books set in other cultures, although this one wasn't so different from ours.
    "The Know It All" by A.J. Jacobs - non-fiction about reading the Encyclopedia Britannica from start to finsih.
    Just started:
    "Escapement" by Jay Lake
    "The Gone Away World" by Nick Hardaway - I think Rhu might enjoy this. Just an instinct.
    "Lush Life" - Richard Price. Price is a realist who writes about inner city drama. He has been praised as the best writer of realistic modern dialogue ( meaning English/American, I suppose ) but I think George V. Higgins rivals him for dialogue. There's a lot more to Price than dialogue, though. I read his earlier novels "Clockers" and "The Good Samaritan". He's very adept at setting up realistic situations that show the "human condition" of modern urban life. Never a "quick read" however.
    "Clark Gifford's Body" by Kenneth Fearing - recommended for me by the same INTPC member.
    "Their Wildest Dreams" by Peter Abrahams - Stephen King's favorite suspense writer
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    Reichsfuhrer Herman Goering at the Nuremburg trials.

    The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

    Just recently I finished A Gathering of Gargoyles by Merideth Ann Pierce, and DeathNote: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases. I'll leave my comics and manga out of this.

    Recently I glanced through some parts of Democracy's Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy by Michael J. Sandel. Very interesting take on the prevalent concepts that govern American socio-political consciousness and how they have little if any connection to what were the original governing principles of the American Repbulic.

    The Sickness Unto Death Soren Kierkegaard. For the third time! And I'm loving it.

    Just finished Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann, and I'm well proud because it was 600 pages and I've become nigh on illiterate during the past few years. I just found out they're coming out with a new movie for the book in December in Germany! I hope they'll import it here at some point.

    Ooh. I liked that. I have a hard time getting into things, but LoP was very warm and welcoming.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I'm reading this month's issue of Scientific American - they have an article about the effects of the moon on the earth that was very interesting.
