Me, I'm reading Gun With Occasional Music, a hardboiled science fiction detective novel by Jonathan Lethem. It's really weird.
What books are you guys reading now?
These can be novels, graphic novels, anything readable that is physical.

It's still not as good as the first two: overlong and a little flat, it wasn't worth the wait to be honest.

Currently reading "The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms" by N.K. Jemisin again: there's nothing new out that strikes my fancy at the minute, so just re-reading anything out of my substantial collection of novels.

Also reading the latest Computer Arts Magazine. The only 'zine I read these days as the almighty Terrorizer finally succumbed to the masses and went all emo.

You're a brave man. After 'Wizard and Glass' things went down hill with unnerving speed. I managed to get to the end, but SoS and TDT were a real struggle for me. I didn't even bother with 'The Wind Through the Keyhole'.

Yeah the first two books were really good, number three was awesome then it slowed down from there. I got attached to certain things that changed. Unfortunate.


I actually read the prequel to the Dark Tower Series. It was a short story in a SK collection. Wasn't bad, can't imagine reading a series though. It was basically Fallout 3

Axe approves!

And I'm not much of a reader. The books are great, and the show is equally great

I put so much time into it that I might as well finish.

'The Daylight Gate' by Jeanette Winterson.

I've yet to read anything by Winterson that is anything less than utterly engrossing: this proves no exception. Stunning little novel.
