After finishing Asimov's "Fantastic Voyage II: Destination Brain" for the second time after 1980something I'm now re-reading "The Robots of Dawn" by the same author.

Maybe so, but I can (and have) ordered The Crippled God! I may still beat you yet!

I don't know, Luci... the guy's a Joss Whedon fan (what's that? you're all Joss Whedon fans, too? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Razz
Though I should be focusing on Malazan, I've also started Endymion by Dan Simmons which will be followed up by The Baroque Cycle by Neal A. Stephenson. Somewhere in there, I'll also be reading The Green Pearl by Jack Vance, Gates of Fire by some guy, and I think Bakker's Prince of Nothing Trilogy is in there somewhere.

Pressfield. Stephen Pressfield is the guy who did Gates of Fire. And Brinn will give you a refund if you don't like it. Wink

(It's pretty good though.)

I'll be starting The Dragon's Path By Daniel Abraham (Author of the "Long Price Quartet") tomorrow when my book arrives.

The Third Reich at War

Very great book. But a chilling read.

Well, *that's* certainly cheerful. Wink

I'm still working through the stack o' books I got at WFC last fall. The latest is Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson. It's categorized on as "paranormal romance," which in this case translates to "bodice ripper plot in a fantasy setting". Laughing I'd be more interested in this book if I hadn't given up reading regular bodice rippers in my 20s....

Still on Against All Things Ending. Makes me wish they'd got the same guy to write the last book - this one's much better. Wink

So it turns out that the C.L. Wilson book I was reading is book 1 in a 5-book series. The first four of which were released on the same day last September. Shocked Apparently not even romance writers can finish a storyline in one book any more....

Moving on now...to something called The Sword-Edged Blonde by Alex Bledsoe, who I've never heard of. I will keep you posted...

Hanging on to Memories at p. 472 by a thread (I'm liking how it's picking up BTW) but chomping at the bit to read, hmmm...maybe the Chrons again, The Judging Eye, it's new sequel and the two Rothfus books. I wonder if I've lost my interest in Sci-Fi lately, Ananzi Boys and Quicksilver aren't real Sci fi at all are they? Dam I've almost gone a year and a half without Sci Fi (maybe 2012 is terrifying enough without it! Mr. Green Razz Razz Razz ).

If you've gone through DG and 472 pages of MoI and aren't hopelessly hooked, it's maybe just not your series. There's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many pages to go if you're having to struggle during these - the best - books.
