I've slowed down after the weekend but still over the 300 page mark, and pretty stunned by some shocking events, and I see "The Shining Girls" which I really enjoyed is being turned into a TV series.

Finished the Gray Friar anthology, "Where The Heart Is", which I recommend. Have picked up "The Map and the Territory" by Michel Houellebecq for reading at work.

And at home I finished the surrealist novel, "Liberty or Love!" by Robert Desnos and picked up Carole Johnstone's "Cold Turkey".

I've finished reading "The Map and the Territory" by Michel Houellebecq at work which I enjoyed although can't quite say why, and have picked up "Train To Hell" by Alexei Sayle..

Still reading "Là-bas" by JK Huysmans at home. Finished Alexei Sayle's "Train To Hell" at work (which was ok in a 1980s kind of way), then read Black Static, and have now picked up Tony Ballantyne's "Dream London".

Just started reading 'The Sea Priestess' by Dion Fortune, an occult classic, apparently.

I'm also dipping into Viv Albertine's autobiography 'Clothes Clothes Clothes, Music Music Music, Boys Boys Boys'. Sad to read that Sid Vicious was the violent, ignorant loser as he was portrayed in the late '70s.

Despite its somewhat downbeat story, I'm really enjoying William Gibson's THE PERIPHERAL.

I am reading Kim Stanley Robinson's 2312, and am totally enjoying it. For me, it's a thoroughly satisfying mix of science, scientific extrapolation (colonisation of the Solar System), scientific-philosophical speculation (e.g. strong AI), politics and realistic story-telling. It requires attention to detail, although the plot is not complicated. The slow, unpretentious style and interesting content remind me of Paul McAuley's The Quiet War . No page turner, but a book to be savoured.

At the weekend read the Joe R. Lansdale novella "Prisoner 489".

Finished "Là-bas" by JK Huysmans at home and picked up Strange Tales IV (Tartarus Press). At work finished Auster's "The Invention of Solitude" and have picked up "Moxyland" by Lauren Beukes. Both the Huysmans and Auster were interesting.

Currently reading Jo Nesbo's "Phantom" - another one in the Harry Hole series. Not as good as The Snowman or The Bat, but still pretty damned good so far.
