Stephen, let us know how the Steinmeyer turns out. I have "Hiding the Elephant" somewhere in the TBR pile, and was impressed with Steinmeyer's biography of Charles Fort, when I reviewed it for BS last year.

I just started "A DREAM OF ARMAGEDDON" by H.G. Wells --- I also see Tartarus Press played a role in this beautiful hardcover? --- over 31 of Herbert Wells' greatest science-meets-supernatural short stories. Many formerly published in The Strand.

Beautiful dustjacket and binding. I paid next-to-nothing over the Labor Day weekend with the B&N discounts.

Will do, Pete. It's absolutely compelling so far.

I'm also reading 'Cell' by Stephen King, and enjoying it, despite the panning it received.

Cheers Stephen.

130pp in to "Way of the Barefoot Zombie" by Jasper Bark, the latest in Abaddon's Tomes of the Dead series, and it's a hoot so far.

Just finished reading "Kafka On The Shore" by Huraki Murakami. Thoroughly entertaining, thought-provoking, and imaginative. Highly recommended.

Well, there are certainly a couple of sequences in this book which would pass for horror...although overall it's kind of magicalfantasysurrealismrealism ;)

'Nocturnes'?
I've just started reading a collection of stories with the same title, but by Kazuo Ishiguro.

Benedict, have you read the two novellas in Connolly's collection yet? I thought they were great.

And I've just started Grant Morrison: The Early Years by Timothy Callahan. Analysis of the themes and symbolism in Morrison's early comics work such as Zenith, Animal Man and Arkham Asylum. But strangely so far there's no mention of Zoids or the G.I Joe stuff he did.

Having been putting it off for a while, I've just started Neal Stephenson's epic 'Baroque Cycle' with Quicksilver.

If it's anywhere near as good as Cryptonomicon I'll be in for a treat - though with a combined page count of just under 3,000 pages I may be immersed for some time... 8)
