I read David Zindell's Neverness, which was pretty crazy. Been on an Edgar Rice Burroughs bender since then, starting with the Barsoom series.

So, one of my Christmas presents was a set of three Penguin paperbacks from their "modern fiction" range. And I don't read a lot of modern literary fiction, because it's mostly pointless,...

Long distance train travel seems to be a good way to get through books.

To be honest, I didn't find Neuromancer as exciting as I thought I would from its reputation. Possibly you're right, the wow factor has been weakened by technology nipping on its heels. Still a good...

Prospero's Cell, by Lawrence Durrell. Is, by and large, over-rated. Possibly this is because I overestimated my interest in the history of Corfu. As for the bits concerning contemporary Corfu, I find...

I read Going Postal over Christmas as well. The subtexts are still becoming less, well, subtle. There should have been more Godel in there as well. Still it's always nice to get another glimpse into...
