I'm about a third of the way through Watership Down by Richard Adams and I'm really enjoying it. One of the best fantasy books I've ever read, I have to say. And it's all about rabbits.

I've read Maia, Part of Shardik, Traveler, and the Plague Dogs too.

Maia's really sexually graphic, and the Plague Dogs is sad for people who like dogs,...but he's a pretty wild author.
Traveler is the tale of the (U.S.) Civil War told from the standpoint of Robert E. Lee's horse,....Traveler.

I didn't know he wrote anything else. And the others are from animal POVs too? What an eccentric dude.


Re-reading "The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon" by Stephen King. That friggin' book is a masterpiece of page-turning fiction.

I just finished The Warhound and the World's Pain by Michael Moorcock. I guess I got my expectations up, since I didn't find it to be all that amazing. Moorcock really did need that "Eternal Champion" theme because he honestly only writes one character and just changes the dressing.

Oh he's a work, but I didn't know he'd written that many books (ref. to Heathansson's post above). I've only read two.

I have to reread that one again.

Thanks for pointing it out again.
I have no bookshelves :( only boxes on the attic

I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski and What Have You a fan-authored book on the Big Lebowski by the guys that started Lebowski Fest. Interviews with the cast, the people that inspired the characters and miscellaneous stories and trivia.


Digging it old-school with Lord Dunsany's Time and the Gods and The Fortress Unvanquishable, Save for Sacnoth. I love Dunsany's faery-tale writing style, and I wish D&D had that feeling for magic and wonder.


Just read "Raw shark texts" - by Stephen Hall, and... not that blown away really.
And reading "The hidden assassins" by R. Wilson , good stuff!


Have in the last 2 months read The Great Book of Amber (Chronicles 1-10), A Feast for Crows, and Harry Potter Deathly Hallows . Now I'm looking for some light reading. Time to pull out my Pratchett & catch up on the goings on of Disc World. :o)


Pathfinder Maps Subscriber

'Storm Dragon' by James Wyatt, an Eberron novel. I generall steer clear of game fiction but I have been highly, highly impressed by the Eberron line. I've been told that Keith Baker's books are the weakest of the set but I haven't gotten around to them yet. So far, my favorites have been the War-Torn series and the Inqusitives. Even though they are anot 'canon' they provide a great deal of local color that can only add to an Eberron GM's repetoire.

After that, I'll probably be SM Stirling's The Protector War (Second book in his series that starts with Dies the Fire, where all guns and combustion engines stop working).


Just finish

One Foot in Eden by Ron Rash southern gothic murder mystery

The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian: the original adventures by Robert E. Howard

Reading warmachine/hordes fluff/history

Fizz

"Bring me the Head of Prince Charming" by Sheckley/Zelazny is in my jacket now. (Prior to that one, the "Conclave of Shadows" trilogy by Feist, three page turners)


For professional reasons, re-reading The Merchant of Venice and Macbeth, said to be by you-know-who.

I picked Michael Stackpole's "The Dark Glory War" off of our shelves recently...and LOVED it.

So, now I'm on the next book, "Fortress Draconis" (the first book of the 'DragonCrown War' series) with the next two on hold at the local library branch.

I couldn't believe I'd never heard of these books before. I highly recommend!

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32

It's brilliant, of course!

Silver Crusade Owner - Subcultures

Andoran

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32

Just started "Farthing" by Jo Walton. Alternative history, Brits made peace with the nice Mr Hitler book - good stuff so far. As recommended by Boingboing :)


Hey all. I just started a Paizo fans' group at GoodReads. Check it out.

Michael Barkun's Religion and the racist Right. While it is a serious political science/history book, it is both weird and scary enough to recommend to most other people.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

I read "Baltimore or The Stalwart Tin Soldier and the Vampire" by Mignola and Golden. I thought it was okay. The ending was lame, but I liked the separate stories from the three main characters while they waited for Baltimore to show up in the tavern. It's interesting to see how Mignola continues this Lovecraftian theme of the artist as an enabler for the supernatural in this and the two issue "Jenny Finn".


After reading The Novice I will soon finish Trudi Canavan's Black Magician Trilogy with The High Lord (about 60 pages to go).

Andoran

I started "The Children of Húrin" last night.

Good series, I liked the three. Tempted to check out her other series of books she has out.

I just started Hunters of Dune last night. And finished the WH40k 'Last Chancers' Omnibus yesterday morning - which was good, but I didnt like the ending

Osirion

I'm currently reading:

The Orc King, by R.A. Salvatore
Conan: Lord of the Black River, by Leonard Carpenter
Gotrek & Felix: Manslayer, by Nathan Long
Ascension Magick, by Christopher Penczak

All are really good books, and yes, i always read more than one at a time. One of my little quirks, you could say.

Reading "Conan, the roleplaying game" :),and wishing G.R.R. Martin would hurry up! Starting "Lifeless" by Mark Billingham.

Hey Jit

What do you think so far? Any info you would like to share on "Conan, the Roleplaying Game." I am curious.

Seems like a good OGL product. Human "races" take the place of demihumans. Armour reduses damage . Interesting magic system (uses "magic points and corruption) its got a gazetteer and a bestiary in addition to 2 very large scale maps(1cm =300 miles)

It makes an effort to be complete.

Currently reading Lankhmar Book 3. Then I'll probably follow that up with a Brian Lumley Anthology that just got delivered today - The Taint and Other Novellas.

Hey, thanks Skootro. I've joined & have sort of started my lists.

I'm currently reading Soul Catcher by Frank Herbert. I'm not sure if I'll ever actually read Dune but this was recommended to me as an introduction to Herberts work. I'm about 1/2 way thru and am enjoying it.


Am rereading Blood Rites by Jim Butcher


"Gods in Darkness" by Karl Edward Wagner (good)
"God Stalk" by P.C. Hodgell (started good, now just okay)
"Paper Mage" by Leah R. Cutter (okay)
"The Gates of Night" by Kieth Baker (good)
"The Left Hand of Death" by Parker DeWolf (derivative, uneven, bland characters)

Recently finished:
"Bound by Iron" by Edward Bolme (excellent!)
"In the Claws of the Tiger" by James Wyatt (very good)
"Forge of the Mindslayers" by Tim Waggoner (very good, but the first book in the trilogy was awesome!)

Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting by John F. Carlson.
King Rat by China Mieville.

Great. I was hoping more people would join, but obviously most people just aren't that cool. That's right, unless you sign up for the Paizo Good Reads groups, you are a loser. Nanny, nanny, boo, boo.

P.S. Currently reading The Scar


Report on Probability A, by Brian Aldiss.

Simultaneously the most boring and most intriguing book I've ever read. A

Cheliax

Currently reading "Fulgrim: Visions of Treachery" by Graham Mcneil and Part of the Horus Heresy Series

Qadira

"The queen of the Damned" by Anne Rice.
its the third book from the Vampires Chronicles, and as far as I can see the weakest, but still very good

and I've just finished THe Pilars of Earth by Ken Follet, wich I should say its a must read for all who likes a little intrigue and is fascinated by medieval age.


Angels byDenis Johnson, great novel.
Also: clinical neurodynamics by Micheal Shackloc

Andoran

High Seas Cthulhu from ESP. It's edited by William Jones, who's other Mythos collections have consistently been above standard. So far, every tale is pretty good. I'm only half-way, but a couple stick out already: "Signals" by S.M. Rainey (who was my prof in Creative Writing 1), and Wil Meikle's "The Havenhome". The first is a modern tale, and the latter is a pre-Colonial (for you Int'l members, that's pre-American Revolution, c. 1605), demonstrating the spectrum of stories offered. All the tales center on ships or the oceans. Very highly recommended.


Reading "White Death, Russia's War on Finland 1939-40" by Robert Edwards
and starting Niall Griffiths "Sheep Shagger", about life in rural Wales:)

Andoran

A Clockwork Orange. A real horrorshow read, that.


Red seas under red skies, the second book in the gentlemen bastards series by scott lynch, before they are hanged by joe abercrombie and the wintersmith by terry pratchett... oh and the rules compendium WoTC


On a trip to Portland a year or two ago, I dumped a great stack of money at Powell's for a great stack of books, including the entire run of "Fafherd & the Grey Mouser" compilations, save the first. Last week, I finally got around to starting them. Oh, man.


Just finished "Manslayer" by Nathan Long and am now starting "The Golden Compass" by Phillip Pullman.
My daughter's school just sent home a note wanting us all to boycott the book and movie because the author is an atheist. Now I have to read it!

Is that a good 'oh, man' or a bad 'oh, man'

Mmm...Powells...I regularly drop a c-note there when I make a trip up to Portland.


Just finished The High King's Tomb by Kristen Britain. Not bad, but not as good as the first two books in the series. Also finished The Road to Hell which was amusing. Currently awaiting Sister of the Dead and Succubus on Top.
