Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Took me a few seconds to get the title of the new thread, but I like it.

Just finished up Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. Just amazing.

Started Mainspring by Jay Lake. Not that far into it but I'm not sure it's going to do a lot for me. And also a little way into The Kingdom of Shadows by K.W. Jeter. Can't judge it yet.

I love the thread title!

I'm currently reading "Double Helix #5: Double or Nothing". Before that, I read "Captain's Table: Once Burned" and loved it. It really warmed me to Calhoun, who was my least favourite NF character.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Gonna wrap up Watching the Clock and Paths of Disharmony before the end of the year. I have Christmas Day - New Year's Day off so I ought to get a lot of good solid reading time in.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished Stephen King's 11/22/63. I picked it up from the library on Tuesday afternoon, began reading it yesterday morning, and that's how I've been spending my free time since then. I don't read a lot of King (horror isn't a genre that attracts me), but this -- utterly captivating. I have a perverse attachment to the 50s/60s (was raised on that music and television from the era), so the sheer amount of immersive detail King threw in would have thrilled me, even if the storytelling wasn't so compelling. There's a subtle shade of horror and anticipation throughout the book, and the ending...

Suffice it to say, I think it tops my list of King books. I wonder if Christopher has read it, given the time-travel angle.

I'm not a King fan, and it's not like I go out of my way to seek out time-travel fiction all the time, just when I was in the process of developing and writing Watching the Clock.

Ha, excellent thread title! Nicely done! Glad I wasn't the one to start it, I wouldn't have come up with that.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through and I'm really enjoying it so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Picked up Kim Harrison's The Hollows graphic novel, Blood Work. I'm almost done with Paths of Disharmony (300/371 pages into it) and I'm think about working on it and some of the other GNs I've got piled up. The pile includes the second SW: Knights of the Old and Buffy Season 8 collections, and the SW:Mara Jade and SW:Union collections.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Ilona Andrews' Magic Slays. After finally giving up on the Anita Blake series it's nice to find a decent urban fantasy series with a likable female lead. I just hope Andrews doesn't screw the shark the way LKH did later on.

I'm also starting Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. So far, awesome read.
