Oooh I just read the Amazon page for that. It looks good. My nickname is partly from Dan's Hyperion Cantos.

I'm just finishing up "The Currents of Space" by Isaac Asimov... :tu

Next up is a mystery called "Smoking out a Killer" by Harry P. Lonsdale, which I had to inter-library loan from out of state. It's supposed to be about an ex-detective who now owns a cigar store...

We'll see it if it's any good shortly! :ss

Did you like the book? Seems like people either love it or hate it.

I'm about 75 pages into it. My first book by this author. It took me a little while to get into the Victorian style of writing-it is very Dickens-ish.

I've been reading a ton lately, hadn't had internet or much of anything else to do to kill time, so I read all the books I brought with me to Germany.

Read the first two books of the Mitch Rapp Series by Vince Flynn--really enjoyed them and bought the other seven books to read...

Read Working on the Edge by Spike Walker. It is a very well written account about living as a King Crab Fisherman in the Bering Sea. I liked the show Deadliest Catch, and this is a book about one guys experience in the 70s and 80s before everything became so high tech.

Bought One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest--which I'm reading now, what a fitting place for me to be telling about it-- and Robinson Crusoe, which I'll get to later. Looking forward to both of these books.
