One of my favorite books ever, have read it a handful of times through-out my life. Have you read "Melmoth, The Wanderer"? If you enjoy Lewis' work you would certainly enjoy ol' Melmoth.

Both of these are really enjoyable. I distinctly remember especially enjoying Melmoth the Wanderer.

Currently reading “The Talisman” by Stephen King and Peter Straub. It’s okay. I wanted something not too involved.

I just read Chaos: Charles Manson, The CIA and the Secret History of the 60’s by Tom O’Neill. It was fucking great. Totally discredits Helter Skelter as a totally biased trash heap. Was great. Everyone interested in Manson should read this book.

I also read Macbeth by Jo Nesbo. It was also great. I read it at a cottage and it was totally fun, totally convoluted, and ridiculous.

Currently reading:

Archeofuturism by Guillame Faye: Some really insightful thoughts in here, especially considering the book was written in 1998. Some predictions were right, some others were wrong but nevertheless it's worth reading. But his reflections on technolgy related matters are definitely the weakes point of the book.

The three impostors by Arthur Machen: Definitely a small masterpiece by one of the best author in the weird/fantastic literature.

Have you seen the movie version of "The Monk" with Vincent Cassel? Usually I'm not a huge fan of modern directors taking on classic Gothic materials (i.e. the joke that was the 1992 Bram Stoker's "Dracula") , but they did "The Monk" exceptionally well.

I just started reading "A Wile Sheep Chase" by Haruki Murakami today.  I just began reading his novels this summer, and have enjoyed all that I have read so far.  Anyone else like his books?
