    Im reading James Rollins Sandstorm. This guy has grabbed me, he just slides you from place to place person to person setting to setting. He grabs your attention and keeps it. The author was recommended to me and I like him alot. Its fiction btw

    Reading the first book in James Lovegrove's proposed 'Cthulhu Casebooks' trilogy, 'Sherlock Holmes and the Shadwell Shadows'.

    Perfectly echoing Conan Doyle's/Dr. Watson's narrative style, it tells the real story of Holmes' decades-long battle, not with Professor Moriarty, but with the forces of the Elder Gods. Great stuff.

    I tried reading that a long time ago and couldn't really get into it. Maybe I'll try again sometime. I've stockpiled a lot of HST that I should either get around to reading or pass on to my youngest son - also a fan of the good doctor.

    Finished Ace Atkins' latest Spenser novel on Sunday, so was looking for something to begin reading last night, and decided to finally start a book I've been meaning to read since I was a teenager (I probably have three or four copies in my highly disorganized personal library) - H. Rider Haggard's 'King Solomon's Mines'. A sensation when it appeared in 1885, it was the first book in (what has become known as) the 'lost world' sub-genre of adventure stories, and featured the debut appearance of Haggard's great hero Allan Quatermain.
