My present reading list:
1.) Re-reading Executive Orders
by Tom Clancy. I will re-read The Bear and the Dragon
shortly. It's good for slow night shifts. I've been on a Tom Clancy kick, lately. I recently re-read Without Remorse
and Rainbow Six,
the former of which is my favorite Clancy novel.
2.) Ten or so comic titles, the most impressive of which are Vertigo Publishing's Daytripper
(by Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon) and IDW's Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers
(by Nick Roche and James Roberts). I cannot recommend either of these highly enough. They are fantastic. Even if you're not into comics, give Daytripper
a chance. Think of it as collection of illustrated short stories rather than a comic. It is truly beautiful.
3.) I am about to start in on The Crusades: The Authoritative History of the War for the Holy Land,
by Thomas Asbridge. I've heard good things and am looking forward to it.
by Dave Cullen. My coworker has lent this to me. I'm told that it's a quick read, so I'll probably get it in before I start on The Crusades.
5.) I recently finished 20th Century Ghosts,
by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son). Outstanding collection of short stories, "Pop Art," especially.
6.) Prior to that, I read Carrion Comfort,
by Dan Simmons. It starts off a little slow, but it definitely gains momentum. I ended up liking the book a lot. Not quite as much as The Terror,
but still quite a bit.
Brian, your list scares me.
Why is that, Wendy?
