"History of the Runestaff" by Michael Moorcock.
More of his Eternal champion stories. Let's see if they are as good as Elric, because I haven't been terribly impressed with the others.

Just finished Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson for my english class. I vaguely recalled liking the movie (Ethan Hawke can do no wrong in my eyes), and I started on the book a few years back but never finished. I can see why it won so many awards, but this was probably one of the most depressing books I've read in a long time. Good book, I'd recommend it, but have a nice dose of light happy-fuzzies lined up for after it, which is why I'm reading Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris now.

As soon as it gets here, I'll be reading Changes by Jim Butcher - my roommate has not yet experienced me going into a Dresden coma yet, so this should be an experience.

"And another thing"

Very entertaining.

Ah, the Dresden coma. Hopefully I'll be able to experience my own soon.

Sit right down my wicked son,
and let me tell you a story.
About the boy who fell from glory,
and how he was a wicked son.

The more popular ones. The Stranger, The Wanderer, Dream of the Rood, stuff like that. The book includes some prose too, so we've read the Sermo Lupi ad Anglos and other assorted chronicles.

Ah, I remember that one. Looked somewhat closely at it for class last year. Had to look at the different versions.

Have just read the Revolution Business, book five of Charles Stross' Merchant Princes series. Damn good reads.

Have just finished Ian Douglas' "Star corps". Generic military SF. The guy is a bit too fond of throwing around the names of his hardware, and military folks are wonderful people, each and every one, but for one traitor, and all civilians are stupid or greedy or incompetant.

Slightly exaggerated, but that's the feeling I got from his book. I doubt I'll pick up the rest of the trilogy.

"The Last Wish" by Andrzej Sapkowski
Polish fantasy. While I found it in the young adults section here, I doubt it would have ended up there had the people in the store read it. He makes fairly free with some themes, including sex and rape (not graphically so, but more than I have read in most adult fantasy).
While the world seems rather bland - a mix of dozens of monsters around, the characters are more human and slightly deeper than your run-of-the-mill English fantasy. All in all, a decent pass-time.

I believe it is based on the game, or vice versa, "The Witcher".
