I've been listening to Clark Ashton Smith. I have all the recent 6 volumes published by Nightshades as well as the same books as audiobooks by audible, read by various professional narrators.

Just finished Killer, Jonathan Kellerman's latest Alex Delaware mystery. Less gruesome than some of them (thank goodness), but still imaginative and suspenseful, and AD is always an appealing character.

Also reading Etty Hillesum: A Life Transformed, by Patrick Woodhouse.

Thanks for the heads up on that. The paper editions appear to be out of print, but they're available as ebooks. Also, thanks for the cover scan. I collect those.

You're welcome, the audio books by audible are really good. I wouldn't know how to pronounce half the words CAS uses without having heard them.

Re: What are you reading?

Just finished The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, my 12 year old basically insisted that my wife and I read it. Overall it was pretty good, and will move on to Catching Fire after I read:
The Zen of Zim, by Don Zimmer - autobiography of the baseball coaching legend, who just passed a few months ago.

Re: What are you reading?

Finished The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch a few days ago while on vacation. Excellent story! I'd highly recommend it for someone looking for something a bit different in the fantasy genre. The man certainly knows how to create interesting characters, prose and great dialogue. I only learned after I finished it that it was his first published novel, which impresses me even more.
