"...tryin' to make the money for the rent..."

ETA: One of our staffers writes sometimes for McSweeney's, I should have hit him up for a copy. Nahhhh. {{{Craig}}}

Do you know if that collection is available outside of the US? I liked Smoke and Mirrors, one of his other collections, and know that there are one or two others floating around but can't seem to find either.

I don't know - I got my copy from the library. Sorry.

I don't know if I actually got to it as the copy I had was a 1-week only loan with no renewals and I didn't finish all the stories. What was it about/called?

Well in Waterstones sale I've just picked up the late lamented David Gemmell book Troy:Shield of Thunder, and Raymond E Feist's Into a Dark Realm.

Both books were half price. smile.gif

You know, that book could easily be converted into a table. Some legs, a coaster or two and you're all set. laugh.gif

"Monarch of the Glen" - short story about Shadow's post AG adventures in Scotland. Great stuff, really leaves you slavering for more stories in that particular universe.

He sent you "Garth Marenghi: The Complete Ouevre"?! Doesn't that come with a wall mount? laugh.gif

Oh, but you'd be in good company. I'm jealous of the bastard, too.

This Christmas period has seen me being all educated and reading The Crucible and Or Mice and Men. Mainly because I had to for Uni.

I'm sure I did The Crucible first time round at Uni but I couldn't remember any of it. I'm assuming that what I actually did was by the book for my shelf and watched the film instead. Anyway, once Miller stopped bloody interrupting I got right into it.

My boy's been out and bought a few books today and I'm thinking of nabbing the Linda Smith one to read in bed.

Beyond Black Hilary Mantel

A wonderful combination of the supernatural and the mundane, the chilling and the comic.

Mantel's hints at the horrors in the world beyond this life are seamlessly intertwined with the banality of the motorway service station or toby carvery.

Only disappointing in its very end as the richly plotted, brilliantly modern ghost story promised something more than the standard contemporary novel denouement.

Growing Pains Billie Piper

My first celeb autobiography, and though I won't be making a habit of it I enjoyed the faintly voyeuristic thrill of hearing her personal anecdotes and she's had a genuinely interesting life.

I liked that they left her spelling mistakes in.

I found Anansi Boys to be a tad disappointing because the ending trailed off so much to a meanwhile all the characters were happy and got married and had babies which is okay but not the Gaiman i love.

Once i get through a pile of books, I will look into Fragile Things as well as Susanna Clarke's The Ladies of Grace Adieu. Mianly because i like the cover of the latter. I still haven't finished Mr Norrell ... as i hit a wall but i may go back to it.

Any mention of when she walked past me after she switched on the Xmas lights in Leeds in 2000?
