I'm kind of floating in a limbo in between books. I'm feeling like something steampunk or weird fiction-ish, sort of in the vein of China Mieville. Any recommendations for me, RPGC?

Reread China Mieville?
Or if you haven't read him yet, read Charles Stross. Not steampunk, but if you pick up his Laundry files (start off with "The Atrocity Archives"), you'll find well-written men-in-black/Cthulhu horror with a dash of humor.
And the guy created githyanki, githzerai, death knights and slaadi for D&D.

"The BEast" by van Vogt.
One of several of his works I picked up this summer.

The Beast was pretty good, even if the blurb was downright wrong about the contents.
On to Clifford D. Simak's "The City", a collection of short stories about the myths of Dogs about Men.
Man, I love classic SF like this.

"The City" was excellent, the sort of book that exemplifies all that was great about Golden Age SF.
van Vogt's "Earth Factor X", otherwise known as "The Secret Galactics", was a disappointment. Not terribly good, and the rather misogynistic view of women reminded me of what I don't like about Heinlein.

Now I'm reading Nietzche's "Also sprach Zarathustra". Interesting enough so far.

You know, that could sound really naughty.

Finished "The Old Republic: Deceived" for Star Wars. It's partially about Darth Malgus, that big nasty Sith guy in the cinematic trailers, and the former Padawan of the guy he killed in the Jedi Temple. A pretty bland read, with a little too much "this is a person with this class, and here are his companions."
Not nearly as bad, either in content, writing or game tie-in as "Fatal Alliance".
