Judst finished No return: urban alienation, petty crime, racism, drug dealing, identity crisis, jihadism; a lot to recommend in it.

Cracking into Blood Meridian after years of people telling me to check out Cormac McCarthy. Nigh 100 pages in and finding it to be thoroughly good shit.

Reading T.E.D. Klein's "The Ceremonies". Killer horror in the vein of Stephen King. Slow burn Lovecraftian rural Jersey Children of the Corn vibes homaging a lot of obscure horror authors-Arthur Machen actually fills a role in the plot.

Downard's "Carnivals of Life and Death" on the docket, paranoiac coming of age by the guy who wrote King/Kill 33.

Junky - it was.... okay. I didn’t love it. Interesting book for sure and I’ll perhaps go re-read Naked Lunch but didn’t blow me away.

Bourne & The Strange Bird - I loved both of these. Especially Bourne. I really liked the Southern Reach trilogy but these were just excellent. Dead Astronauts in my to-read pile.

Blood of Elves - these Witcher books are okay, definitely a fun cottage read but not a whole lot of substance. I am planning to keep going with them, I have read The Last Wish recently and need to backtrack for Sword of Destiny.

High Rise, Crash & The Best Short Fiction of J. G. Ballard. I read these when I was younger but gave them a re-read. Really enjoyed both, especially High Rise. Just started Concrete Island as well as casually reading a book of interviews.

Next on my Burroughs list whenever I get around to obtaining a copy. Naked Lunch is a dense and wild ride.

Last night I started Inverted World by Christopher Priest. Too early to comment on it, but intriguing sci-fi so far.
