Thread: What are you reading today?

  1. #1

    What are you reading today?

    Outside of forum threads, twitter, and facebook, I'm reading Orrin Grey's Monsters in the Vault, a compilation of his columns reviewing horror movies, and John Langan's The Wide Carnivorous Sky and Other Monstrous Geographies. Just finished Matt Taibbi's Insane Clown President, David Greenberg's Republic of Spin, and Michael Griffin's The Lure of Devouring Light. All are excellent-the Langan is a re-read before diving into his Stoker-nominated The Fisherman. The Griffin is unforgettable 'quiet horror', the two political books are seminal to an understanding of current context, and I love monsters.
    How about you?

    At the moment, A Scanner Darkly, PKD.

    Also, re-reading King's Insomnia. Fitting, in some ways.

    Been reading a lot of non-fiction lately - at the moment "The Vikings" by Neil Oliver. Watching the TV series on the Vikings got me interested in real history (that happens a lot with me).

    Well?

    I'm in the,,, hey! don't we already a W.A.Y.R thread?

    Never mind.

    " I Am No One" by Patrick Flanery.

    Y'know? I often complain about how sometimes a story can seem such hard going and yet, I keep going. With, drip drip drip, just barely enough to keep me wondering what might happen next and then suddenly, in the final few chapters, it comes together and it all makes sense somehow. That's where I am right now with this one.
    The main character is clearly NOT a no one and so I shall probably see how this pans out.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    Oh dear,
    I've finished the book and I didn't get it. No coming together of clues, no final conclusion that i could see. Nothing. I missed the point, totally.
