I finished Lauren Beukes "Moxyland" and really enjoyed it. Have picked up "Mr Hire's Engagement" by Georges Simenon for work. Almost finished Strange Tales IV at home.

Finished Anna Kavan's "Who Are You?" which was short and interesting. Have picked up Yoshihiro Tatsumi's "The Push Man and other stories". At work I'm reading "A Cold Season" by Alison Littlewood.

Just finished "An English Ghost Story" by Kim Newman, but at a bit of a loss what to read next - too much to choose from!

All my books on the reading pile (over 200) are in a numbered list. When I finish one book, my partner chooses a number at random. Works for me :)

Good idea, I actually got two Caitlin R. Kiernan short story collections for Christmas - her last two, so I should get stuck into them.

Finished Alison Littlewood's "A Cold Season" which I really enjoyed. Have picked up Anna Kavan's "A Scarcity of Love" to read at work. At home I'm reading "The Suicide Shop" by Jean Tuele. I've read "The Invention of Morel" by Adolfo Bioy Casares which I also really enjoyed between one of those books.

Also read Black Static #44 and Gary Couzens' new collection "Out Stack and other places" shortly coming from Midnight Street Publications (I've written the introduction). Thoroughly enjoyed that one.

Blimey! It's been over two months since I last posted here. Quite a lot read in that time.

"Dreams of Shadow and Smoke", edited by Jim Rockhill & Brian J. Showers, "Reminiscences of a Bachelor" by J. S. Le Fanu, "The Green Book #3", edited by Brian J. Showers, "The Silver Voices" by John Howard, and "Fearful Symmetries", edited by Ellen Datlow. All of those are reviewed in the current issue of Black Static (#45).

In February I took a busman's holiday and read some books that I'm not going to be writing reviews for, and decided to pig out on some titles from the heap of Wordsworth Editions Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural that I've been stockpiling over the years - "All Saints' Eve" by Amelia B. Edwards, "Oriental Ghost Stories" by Lafcadio Hearn, "The Crimson Blind & Other Stories" by H. D. Everett, "In Ghostly Company" by Amyas Northcote, "Uncanny Stories" by May Sinclair, "The Bishop of Hell & Other Stories" by Marjorie Bowen, and "The Bell in The Fog & Other Stories" by Gertrude Atherton.

For the May issue of Black Static, I plan on running an HPL/Cthulhu special, and for that so far I've read "Lovecraft's Monsters", edited by Ellen Datlow, "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath", "The Dreams in the Witch House" and "The Dunwich Horror", all by HPL himself and issued as part of the PS Pulps range with Pete Von Sholly illustrations, "Black Wings III", edited by S. T. Joshi, "Through Dark Angles" by Don Webb, "Acolytes of Cthulhu", edited by Robert M. Price, "The Lovecraft Coven" by Donald Tyson, "The Madness of Cthulhu", edited by S. T. Joshi, "Whispers from the Abyss", edited by Kat Rocha, "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath" again, but this time a graphic novel adaptation by I. N. J. Culbard, and "The Sad Tale of the Deakins Boys" by Will Hill.

I've also read the latest from Ralph Robert Moore, "Ghosters".

I've been slack here too. Since I last posted I've read Richard Yates' "A Good School", Machado de Assis' "Philosopher or Dog?", Lampedusa's "The Leopard", Raymond Queneau's "We Always Treat Women Too Well", Nina Allan's "A Thread of Truth", Delacorta's "Diva", and John Wyndham's collection, "The Seeds of Time".

Currently reading "Sex & Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll", a bio of Ian Dury, and Gareth Powell's "Ack-Ack Macaque".

I am reading Greg Egan's Permutation City , a wonderful book. It is about virtual humans in, I guess, a reality created by a computer. But I do not really know much, as I'm at page 100 and the book so far is complex, almost too much so for me. Greg Egan does fine work in showing what a virtual world--a computer's running programme--might well be like, 'to a person in it,' to those 'outside looking in,' and to both species when interacting. It demands close reading but is worth it.

Read a whole load of children's books, and I'm currently reading the Titan Books edition of "Dark Detectives" edited by Steve Jones with some classic storeis framed by Kin Newman's "Seven Stars" and other more contemporary occult detective tales by the likes of Barker and Gaiman et al.
