    I finished reading "the Cryptographer" today. I liked it, it's well written almost no-clich and effective in communicating emotions in general. The author uses the short-sentence+ full-stop method magnificently
    "love, music, wine & revolution"

There's a lot of sexual content and controversial issues such as rape and murder

    OK, I've given up on this book: it was just too disturbing. I think if I'd have carried on reading it I'd have ended up in an institution.

    I've moved onto safer territory: Philip K. Dick - Valis lol

    * Kuranes makes note of "dice" book *

    Currently finishing up "The Know It All" ( non-fiction ) about a guy who reads the entire Encyclopedia Britannica. It's had its moments.

    Starting Stephen Woodworth's series that begins with "Through Violet Eyes" about a world much like ours that has one type of human beings that can communicate with the dead. They are used in court cases as murder witnesses etc.

    Starting Kenneth Fearing's "Clark Gifford's Body"

    Starting "Lush Life" by Richard Price - a master of dialogue and inner city realism

    Finished a great "new" ( to me ) science fiction author's book "Escapement" by Jay Lake. I then went out and got a book of his short stories.
    "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.
