"StarFIST: Force Recon - Backshot" by Dave Sherman and Dan Cragg.
Military SF. Decent enough.

Well, right now I'm on a video game tie-in kick, and I just finished Mass Effect: Revelations and I just purchased Mass Effect: Ascension. If I could ever find Contact Harvest I'd read that and Cole Protocol, but every damn book store near me never has it...

Oh! I also bought The Zombie Guide to Survival. Definitely pumped about that one. I still need to finish reading about Drizz't too now that I think about it. Then I've got the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and I can finally start finding some books on time travel. I suddenly have a craving for headaches.

"The Atrocity Archives" and "The Jennifer Morgue" by Charles Stross.
Computer geek working as a spy/spec-op for a British MIB saving the world from Lovecraftian horrors.
A bit light-hearted to be truly Lovecraftian, but damn good reads.

Re-reading Cell, by Stephen King. Heard a rumor that Eli Roth is set to direct a movie adaptation of it, and dear god I hope that's true. That would be one hell of a movie, much better than The Happening. If done right that is.

QUOTED 
QUOTED  So will I. Once the story is finished. Some years ago I decided I wasn't going to re-read the entire bloody series each time a new book came out, so I shelved it until such time as it is finished.


I figure that, at this rate, by the time I finally finish the series, the last book will be out. Though, considering I've been trying to read them for about five years, it might take signficantly longer than that...


SUPPOSEDLY, the final book A Memory of Light will be published November of this year. However, while doing some research on it, there has been talk of breaking the book into two installments. This made me laugh. If this happens, not only are we waiting for the final book, but the November release will be first the first installment only with the second to come at a later date. Those crafy publishers.

Dzur, the latest of the Vlad Taltos series by Steven Brust. Great series, for those that haven't heard SL and I saying read it.

Soon, Kushiel's Avatar, part of Jacqueline Carey's Terra d'Angel series. Good series, oddly masked as a romance. It's not really.

Read it when I was over the pond last fall.
Tried reading "THe Phoenix Guards" at the same time, but the change of style from the rest of the Vlad Taltos books to a pseudo-Three Musketeers didn't work for me.

I just finished reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman and it was freaking amazing. Crowley rocks. It's now near the top of my favourite books list.

Now I am reading The Colour of magic, the first Discworld book, then I am going to read The Light Fantastic.

You have to read that series with the tongue-in-cheek intent it was written in. Remember the Paarfi books were written as "bite of the thumb" to the literature snob/elites of Academia. Pointing out that "High Romance" is not the only true "literature" of the genre.
