that book rocks - i read it 3 times.

i really liked the whole "trying to get money for a flick" part... where he talks about sitting down with Dentists, showing them the super-8 version of Evil Dead or something and "you haven't lived until you've done this."

yeah, the MoA signing ought to be a zoo. ick. I hear he'll come sign at Dreamhaven sometime in November. I'll go then, I likely.

manna -- it's good. I got it early partly to be a supporter to the cause of Best Seller List hiking, honestly. I figure more fame for him is going to translate pretty effectively to more fame for fantasy in the midwest, and I'm a bit vested in that...

I'm not quite done with it, but I have read it in the past. Granted, this was when I was 12, so I don't think I got as much out of it as I could. I do like it, though.

Rereading Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy; I do that every few years when I want something really ... chewy. He does get self-indulgent sometimes (it shows a bit in Blue Mars; in his later work, like The Years of Rice and Salt, it's insufferable, like a mystic leftie Ayn Rand) but at his best, he's damn good.

I think after I'm done with this I'm going to head back to military history for a while. That's my usual diet when school is beating me down, to remind myself that it could always be worse. WW1, probably. (Worst ... four ... years ... ever.) I slogged my way through Shelby Foote last month, and after that it's time to give the Civil War a rest.
