Books of Magic: Life during war time.

Not surpsingly, the worst of the BoM series. I can understand that Gaiman cringed at what happened to Tim and his universe during the run of the main series, but this one is just too far out. Writing is painful and the art is awful.

Indiana Jones and the Philosopher's Stone by Max McCoy. Apparently, the guy wrote a whole bunch back in the 90s. Good book so far, Indy's already had to fight an Italian fascist in British Honduras, been questioned by the FBI and fired, and had to climb his way up a dirigible's dangling anchor rope.


Sounds interesting Nix. Haven't read any Dr. Jones books. I'd believe I could get into them.

Rereading Charles De Lint's "The Onion Girl" for the umpteenth time. My copy's actually starting to fall apart. This is one of my all-time favorite books, simply because it's such a heartfelt journey every time - you don't read the book, you experience all the pain and beauty of it. The combination of the horror stories of the characters, what led them to living on the street, and the magic and beauty of the native american legends that come to life around them is just incredible.

Definitely recommended if you liked any of Neil Gaiman's work, particularly American Gods.

I've read DC's "Kingdome Come", which was well-written and excellently drawn.
I've started on "REd Harvest", another zombie story for STar Wars, which I bought in a fit of insanity. After the first three chapters I can tell it's shit. Force-sensitive intelligent orchids. ...the hell?

And yet still not the most ridiculous thing to come from the Star Wars expanded universe...


For all you other readers, a question: Poppy Z. Brite worth a read? I read one of her(?) books way back in highschool, didn't much care for it, but I like vampire novels and people keep telling me Lost Souls is amazing.

"Red Harvest" was indeed shit all the way through. Not suspenseful in the slightest and no characters that made you feel for them. At least "Death Troopers", the author's previous SW-zombie book, had some sense of desperation that worked.

Yes, I agree. I borrowed that from a friend years ago. I plan on buying it at some point.

Nearly half-way through "Three Musketeers". I read it at work, where I do most of my reading these days, so it's only about 30-40 minutes at a time, which is why I don't seem to read books very fast. A lot of fun, but I was rather surprised to see just how dishonest, cheap and unpleasant the characters, especially DArtangan and Porthos are compared to what little exposure I've had to them from other adaptations.
