The Religion by Tim Willocks
Willocks writes few books, but they do include one of my all time favourites Green River Rising (a blend of Assault on Precinct 13 and Oz). The Religion is only his fourth novel and is an excellnt story set during the Siege Of Malta during the 16th Century. Lot's of violence, lot's of chivalry and neither Christian or Muslim treated as the "good guys". Again, he writes a great hero. Also a chance to learn about an event in history I never really knew much about.

check you local library first, you'll be surprised how quick they get books in these days. I keep meaning to pay my fine. It's only 20 and then i can get all the books i like.

I have the same problem with fines. We can only go to $10 before they stop us from taking out books.

wish they did that here! i rented a paul mckenna dvd and forgot about it. It was crap anyway.

on another subject, has anyone noticed the trend in abusive childhood books? why would you want to read that? there's loads of them. I can understand why the person would want to write the book because it's very therapeutic but reading it is just weird.

Finished First Among Sequels last night and it was yet another brilliantly funny, clever and thrilling book from Mr. Fforde. It's good to see that the Thursday Next series can work with 'one-off' stories just as well as they did as ongoing stories. Although there were parts of it which seem to hint at future plot elements, so it'll be cool to see where the series goes from here.

Finally started reading Atonement last night as well.

There were loads of copies at the Waterstones at Manchester airport.

According to wikipedia, it's not meant to be out in the UK until July 5th. Not sure what's going on there, then.

I'm actually a bit concerned about my copy since there are a few instances of footnoterphone's being used but none of them show up as footnotes in the book, despite there being spaces for them at the bottom of the pages. Maybe these ones are ones which have been mistakenly sent out.

I read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Phallus a few weeks back, then rented the motion picture A Scanner Darkly. The film interested me thoroughly (after it was finished) so I purchased the book. Looking forward to it...

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

I can't think of what to say about it, I've read it that many times. Although, this is the first time I've read it in about two going on three years.

It seems so small to me now. Aside from The Chronicles of Narnia, I haven't read any really short books for a while.

Somebody smuggled them out via the footnoterphone conduits.

It wasn't a branch of Kaine's Books, was it?

Just started re-reading Consider Phlebas for the first time in over a decade, I'd forgotten how good it was.

I've been eyeing that off for a while... I've read The Bridge, The Wasp Factory and am currently reading Complicity, but I haven't read any of his sci-fi. Good, is it?

That was the first Iain M Banks book I read, handy as it was also the first Sci Fi and/or Culture novel as well, and I still rate it as one of the best.

Reread Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban over the last couple of days. Azkaban is still my second favourite because of all of the ironic moments, the whole thing with the Time Turner, the Dementors and, of course, Sirius Black. smile.gif
