I wasn't saying another word. Smile

And I've been wearing pants for the first time in about 8 months lately... Twisted Evil

... and you haven't been arrested yet? The cops out your way sure are lenient on indecent exposure. Shocked

D, that's pretty bizarre! But in a funny way.

Since when did we start with this 'appropriate' stuff?! Or did the aliens come in and snatch everyone up?

Reading. Right.

In the last month, I've finished a pretty decent pile of books:

Jonathan Maberry's BAD MOON RISING. Excellent classic vampires with an old, European flair, good horror, good plotting, tension and characterization. Will definitely be picking up more of his work. (I heard him talk at Dragon*Con last year, too. The man knows his folklore!)

Charles de Lint's MOONHEART. One of his better works, well-paced and lush. Classic de Lint though, so a good place to start if you haven't read his work, but too lengthy to go into here.

Caitlin Kiernan's DAUGHTER OF HOUNDS. I have a bit of a writerly crush on this woman. This book backs up that crush. (Yes, first one of her's that I've read.) It has a lovely thread of surrealism in it. It *did* hit a lot of trigger-points for me though, for reasons I won't go into here. A hard read for that reason, and slow from the standpoint of having to process a lot.

Ken Scholes' LAMENTATION. It has been a long time since I read AND enjoyed classic fantasy. I think Stackpole was my last fantasy binge. That being said, I picked up lamentation on my boyfriend's recommendation, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The political intrigue was fun, and the ending wasn't a give-away like too many high fantasies are. It was also a cool world.

I've also read through 2 Apex magazines, which are consistently good.

Now on the list:

Alex Bledsoe's SWORD-EDGED BLOND (which I'm already finding a fun read)
Rogue Blade Entertainment's DEMONS anthology (some very strong Sword and Sorcery.)
A.J. Hartley's ACT OF WILL, also already sucking me in.
BORDERTOWN, an ARC handed to me with the invitation to query agent Barry Goldblatt. See? Snarking does bring you good things!

Boyfriend? Sellout! I thought you were a man-hater. lol

And I mentioned this before to you, but I have Lamentation and have been meaning to read it for a while. I've heard it's great by many people. Gotta read the new Terry Brooks first, though. =)

It happens. I wrote a story called "Long Days to Come" this past Summer, just a weird post-apocalyptic flash piece. Then a few weeks later, down Cape Cod, I stop in this indie book store and see this cool-looking book called Scorch Atlas. I thumb through it, then read the first story. Fuck me if it wasn't just like my story! Haha. It's something of a novel, I guess, but told through a series of flash pieces and short stories, all depicting some aspect of post-apocalyptic life.

Fantastic book, but the similarities to that one story of mine--which is different from everything else I've written--is eerie.

Just got that in the mail. It'll be a while before it's read, though.

It was meant to be a while before I read it, too. I couldn't resist.

I'm trying to catch up with other reads before starting anything new. I'm reading like 20 things at once right now. All depends on what room I'm in or where I'm at. I have a book in the bathroom, the bedroom, the computer room, the living room; then I have books at work, in my laptop bag, in my truck. It's quite absurd. Laughing

I used to be able to read like 4 to 7 books a week...anymore, it takes me at least a week to devour one.

My life is just a bit cluttered at the moment, and the books reflect that disarray, I guess.

I usually end up reading things between 3-6 am. Insomnia sucks.

H.P. Lovecraft - I held out for dozens of stories and hundreds of pages, but I finally allowed myself to read my favorite - The Case of Charles Dexter Ward - and finished it yesterday.

There's a decent movie version of this, but I would pay through the nose for a faithful and detailed big budget version of this story. Easily my favourite H.P. Lovecraft story.

Shock Totem 3 - so far, so good...

I'm halfway through SARAH LANGAN's "The Missing" and I dig it a lot.

Reminds me of early 80's King...never a bad thing!

Sorry, dude. That ending didn't do much for me.

I set aside A Dance with Dragons for now. Reading a few pages a night just doesn't move the story along fast enough for me.

Now I'm reading these:

Dean Koontz - Frankenstein: Prodigal Son
The Gate: 13 Dark & Odd Tales

THIS: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/88715

Which is a sequel to THIS: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/29497

Which is temporarily free on Smashwords and the best, most original, messed-up, read-until-dawn book I've seen all year.
