Not quite that bad thankfully!
I'd read it!
Sounds like a decent murder comedy.
Got a bit sidetracked: started reading Clarke's The City and the Stars" but soon I remembered, it was Against the Fall of Night I wanted to read
Then read Kornbluth's The Marching Morons and got stuck reading more from His Share of Glory.
And now I'm trying to get back into the Seven Suns... Of which I still have 32 hours left...
Now I'm tempted to write that story.
^ I think you should!
Just finished reading Days of Darkness: The Feuds of Eastern Kentucky by John Ed Pearce. 3.5/5
Eastern Kentucky was a very frightening place to live during the 19th and early 20th century.
I haven't decided what to read next.
At the very least it deserves a flash fiction!
Hmm. I'm in the process of writing a flash fiction for the Gigantic Worlds project and scripts for three audio adventures-- but I might see what I can come up with over the weekend.
Still on Book 3 Part 2 of A Song of Ice and Fire but damn...I didn't know itw as possible for so much awesome to be contained in one half of a book.
Currently reading a free e-book called Abracadabra! about the background to and recording of the Beatles album Revolver.
"The 9th Girl" by Tami Hoag
Ha. ^ Same. Ender's Game.
"Star Trek: Corona" by Greg Bear
Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
Rereading more of the original 888-page Warren Report on the assassination of President Kennedy.
Star Trek TOS: The Folded World
Samuel R. Delany's Hogg.
Can't say I've figured it out yet though; the violence is rather graphic and I'm not really sure there's any particular point to it all... Oh well, the sex is extreme and some of it isn't all bad
Dragon Champion, by E.E. Knight, on my Kindle. It's a great story, told from the dragon's viewpoint.
just finished reading a story by Ghost07 Absolutely awesome stuff! I think there's a future bestseller author among us.
Next on my list: "The Muzzle" by Heinrich Spoerl. The novel is set in Imperial Germany (same era as Victorian in GB). When returning home from the pub in a rather intoxicated state, a state attorney puts a muzzle onto a statue of the emperor. The next day he can't recall that he did it and is ordered by his superiors to investigate and prosecute the very case (it's considered treason). Gradually, he finds out that it was him and he's at quite a loss what to do. In his despair, he hires a pauper to confess to the deed and go to prison for him. When in court the man claims he "had no idea it was an image of the Emperor but had thought it to be some kind of Goethe" he's promptly aquitted.
