Finished the van Vogt; read 'Wild Horses' by Dick Francis (which I realised was a re-read when I got two chapters into it); and have now started 'The Inflationary Universe' by Alan H. Guth.

HELP! HELP! I'M DROWNING!

Oh, and Snapcase, if you want quintessential English detective stories, look out for a guy called Michael Innes. He's probably not in print any more, so you'll have to scour second-hand book stalls for Penguin paperbacks of his. In my opinion, his writing style is one of the finest I've come across. I would imagine that most other people would find it quite mannered, though.
