What about Adam Elvin?

Or Bradley Johansson. What happened to them at the end of the last books? I have a vague recollection that Bradley died - completely - robbing Paula of her chance to arrest him. Or did he wander off on a Silfen path?

Johansson ended up dead but revived as one of the Silfen in the gas halo.
Of course, he could be something really crazy like a Barsoomian construct or something.

Really? That doesn't ring any bells at all, and I've read it twice.

Anyone read anything by Italo Calvino? I've been recommended 'Invisible Cities' by a friend from Uni. It sounds most intriguing.

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes! I love him. Cosmicomics is beautiful, and you should also try Numbers in the Dark. I don't think you can miss with him, really. LOVE HIM.

Well that is recommendation enough for me. Thanks Mr Craig. I shall look into it.

Whatcha get??
I got a load of second hand books recently. Mostly fantastic charity shop purchases. The other day I got "Nothing But Blue Skies" by Tom Holt, "Last Human" by Doug Naylor, (which I haven't read for yonks!) and a huge book on Ashtanga Yoga...all for the bargain price of 2.50.

I can't remember, other than The Ballad of Peckham Rye by Muriel Spark which I just finished. The other three are at home so I'll check.

I utterly adored If On A Winter's Night A Traveler. He's very clever without making you as a reader feel stupid, if you know what I mean.

I've got all 7 Rincewind Discword books now, and I'm just about to start Sorcery, the 3rd one.

Kevin Smith's My Boring-Ass Life also arrived today, which I'm probably going to carry around in my bag for between lectures.

The other three books in my secondhand book store haul were Emile Zola's The Earth, Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent and Giles Foden's The Last King of Scotland. Am just starting on Conrad and looking forward to it.

I've started reading Sergei Lutyanenko's novel Night Watch

Finished it last night and it was very good indeed. The three novellas that form the story are all self-contained, fast-paced and hugely enjoyable stories which also combine to form a compelling narrative. I was also quite pleased to see that the novels have little, if anything, to do with the films, making the whole thing a pleasant surprise. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

For the moment, though, I've started The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

Achtung Schweinehund! by HArry Pearson
The story of the author's obsession since childhood with war comics, films and toys, as well as a history of wargaming, it's origins and those that play (from the Bronte sisters to Martin Scorsese!). A lot more nteresting and entertaining than it sounds.

Music For Torching by A M Homes
A story of a married couple's disatisfaction with life, a failed attempt to change things through an act of arson, and it's aftermath. I say "failed" - it doesn't quite achieve what they intend but it does seem to help them express what they feel, expose their flaws and open the door to some strange situations. Simply yet brilliantly written. Homes is becoming a bit of a favourite.

I started reading The Gunslinger last night, the first book in Stephen King's Dark Tower series.

Quite good so far, it's tempting me to buy the box set from the book people at work!

Alas, it's too big and thick to fit into my side-pocket, and I don't want to keep it in my main pocket for fear of damaging it, so it's not going to lectures with me.

It's a big, thick book. Tiny writing too, so there's a lot there.
