Have it (for a few weeks now) but haven't started yet. I also have Bauchlein & Korbal Broach too. Part of me wants to devour it and part of me wants to wait until I hear that he's finished with the last one. I have a feeling I am going to be impatient for the last when I finish DoD.

Also, I think that Sanderson really has revived my love of WoT. Halfway through so I won't recommend picking it up yet BUT at this point Sanderson would really have to drop the ball for me to not recommend.

Yes. You. Will. Be.

It ends in a cliffhanger. Sort of. It's not cheap or anything, but at least you start to get the big picture, and oh man is it brutal.

Haven't touched those Korbal books. I wanna get Return of the Crimson Guard and Night of Knives this Christmas. I WANT!

ANd I might get Sanderson's Warbreaker. It's a standalone novel (!!!), a rarity in the field.

Side note on WoT. In years past, I would re-read the last 2 or so before starting the new one (refresher). I didn't this time and was able to jump right into the book. Startling. So basically I'm saying if you haven't picked up the last few and wanted to start fresh then this is a good starting point as things are actually happening. Definite plot moving forward and issues getting resolved.

I think I read the 1st book ages ago.

And Rob, zombies are everywhere now. Even in Harlequin books.

Reading Russ Meyers' bio at the moment.

It is fucking great, and a hoot to boot.

Man sure loved tits.

Middlesex got kinda boring. Cracked Paul Auster's New York Trilogy and can't put that shit down. Unfortunately I have life-related things to do that I'm now putting off to read this.

Tandem reading the last of Russ Meyer's bio and the second Parker novel, The Man with the Getaway Face.

Both rewarding in different ways, featuring different kinds of bastards, each of which are likable.

Them basterds...

Mencken's Chrestomathy.

I have found my misanthropic twin. And he is much more verbose than I could ever hope to be.

Gonna finish Power of the Dog by Don Winslow this weekend before Cameron Hughes kills me - to be fair it's a fantastic book and I'll listen to Cameron's crime fiction recommendations all day long (and Rath, too, but he's a poopyhead who doesn't post here anymore because he's too busy living it up in NYC), but I haven't had much reading time this week at all.

Then I have Kazuo Ishiguro's "Never Let Me Go" and Joe Lansdale's "A Fine Dark Line", which is another Cameron recommendation.

Ishiguro's "Never Let Me Go" isn't grabbing me (hurr) so I'm gonna take that shit back. Grabbed Franzen's "The Corrections, a collection of short stories by Dorothy Parker, James Lee Burke's "Tin Roof Blowdown", and Anne Enright's "Yesterday's Weather".

So Martin. Grabbed a book from the shelf on the way to work and didn't pay attention to what I picked. DoD. Figured, what the hell, I'll read the opening at lunch. Goddamnit. Hooked already.
