haven't been keeping this up to date.  But I just finished a highly recommended Sci Fi, (Canadian) author.  I haven't read much sci fi, and the only title I found in the used book store when I checked him out was "Calculating God".  I thought it was good.  Of interest to me because I have just recently been in conversation with an "agnostic" paleontoligist at our nearby Tyrell Museum of Paleontolgy in Drumheller.  And the story opens with an Alien landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto and the alien goes into the museum and says "Take me to your paleontologist". 

Now I am reading "Shadowmancer" by British author "G.P. Taylor"  Says of it that it was a "New York Times Best Seller".  Meant for teens I think and was offered as an alternative or companion to Harry Potter. 

Just recently read H.G. Wells War of the worlds, (first time I think.)

Calculating God sounds really good! I'll definitely have to put that on my list to read.

War of the Worlds is a great book! The first half/book is a bit too bogged down in detail, however. It's basically just Wells writings after he cycled around the south of England... The second half/book is great, though.

A Clash of Kings by George RR Martin.

I liked the HBO series' first offerings so asked for the books for my birthday just gone, got the first three books as gifts and I'm about two thirds through the second one. Immense fantastical action with plenty of intrigue.

I don't want to read them, I'd rather not know what's going to happen in the series.

Probably some sort of completely ludicrous incident involving a toilet seat and a revolving tie rack.

I'm now reading The Complete Drive In by Joe R Lansdale on my kindle. It's pretty fucked up. The book, not the kindle.

Not reading anything at the moment, but the I, Partridge audiobook is phenomenal. It's a bit unsettling that someone could create such an intricate back story for a fictional character like he has. Anyone read any other fictional autobiographies before?

So far this year I've read

A serpent uncoiled by Si Spurrier which isn't as freaky as his earlier work Contract and tighter in many respects but I didn't like it as much. Still decent enough.

Also Blood of Aenarion by William King which made me realise how much I do like King's writing.

Just started Vegas Knights by Matt Forbeck which is doing well so far.
