Wow. I read the snapshot about Freeman Dyson in 'Q is for Quantum' by John Gribben, only to find out that he was born about five miles from where I live: I pass the village of Crowthorne twice a week on my journey oop North!

Coincidence? I think we should be told.

I finished Eats, Shoots and Leaves, which despite some initial hesitation on my part came through very well. I would reccomend it.

Now reading 'The dark corridor', a Moorcock novella very similar sounding to Silent Running. Depressing as hell, but very atmospheric.

Currently reading "Meditations in Green"...forget the author, but it is about a VietNam soldier and his disillusionment both in war and after.

Also "bit reading" several books on WWII, mainly commando operations...neat thing is, they are all published during the war.

Andre Gide - The Immoralist

Goes up and down in quality but good so far. Not as hard hitting as something like J K Husymans' á rebours, but certainly important when seen in context.

I've read that a couple of times...or started to, anyhow. Never could get completely through it...not very gripping, IMO.
For my money, the best books that evoke the same feeling and perspective are by Hermann Hesse, notably "Narcissus and Goldmund".
Check it out.

Thanks for the tip BGH, although after suffering at the hands of the Glass Bead Game - which has got to one of the most overrated pieces of crap i have ever read - i am sceptical about picking up more Hesse.

At any rate, finished The Immoralist, enjoyed it very much.

Now reading A Russian Journal by Steinbeck with photos by Robert Capa. Basically a trip through 1947 Russia to write about ordinary Russian people and their lives wthout seeing it from a cold war perspective. So far so good.

Wow...that's weird...I was just reading about Capa's D-Day photos today. Boy, that guy died a tragic end...and it's all the fault of the French!

I don't know if any Europeans would appreciate his work, but Stephen Ambrose (plaigarism claims aside) has written some excellent books about WW2 and US history in general.

My personal favorite is actually the book about Lewis and Clark's journey, "Undaunted Courage". If you've ever had an interest in this trip, get the book...made quite inviting in Ambrose's hands.

While on holiday i also read Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami which was good, the first thing i have ever read by Murakami, who, if the critics are to believed, is one of the world's foremost novelists. At any rate, The End of the World is a kind of Neuromancer of the mind, a philosophical thriller, and very good.

But better than that was the other book i read on holiday, which was the absolutely brilliant Carter Beats The Devil by Glen David Gold. The fictionalised account of the life of real 1920's magician Charles Carter, the book rises far above the level of pseudo-biography to become a terrific thriller and a magnificent Great American Novel a la Don Delillo's Underworld. An absolutely stunning book on so many levels and i once again heartily recommend it to everyone.

Finished "Meditations in Green". Did'nt care for it too much. I think it was lauded because it was by a vet about the war and people are too fawning over soldier/writers in the U.S.

Now reading "Young Men and Fire" by Norman Maclean, the author of "A River Runs Through It and other stories" (which the excellent--even Brad Pitt!!!--movie of the same name depicts).

Maclean haunted the same area my family owns a cabin in in Montana (western Montana) so it really resonates with me.
If you want a complete departure from what you may know, namely, fly fishing and nature communing in the U.S., I HIGHLY recommend it. He's like Hemingway, only much more poetic and insightful.

Anyhow, "Young Men and Fire" is about the early formation and tragic death of some Smokejumpers (forest fire paratroopers) in the Mann Gulch fire in Montana circa 1949.

It was edited and published posthumously, so it is a tad disjointed and not nearly as lyrical as "A River...." but the guy has such beautiful little gems in his writing you forgive it.

Check him out here:

BGH,
Yes, it is good, though not one of his best IMHO. It is nice, for me, to see some details about Operation Goodwood, and what the Canadians, Poles and French were contributing to the invasion and liberation. His reminiscence of life in the English countryside before the invasion was interesting too.

Currently reading "Midworld" by Alan Dean Foster...probably considered a cheapo "pulp" sci fi book back then, but it is really a vivid setting and action packed a la some of Heinlein's early mass produced novels.

I've read that too. Pretty good, light reading I thought.

I'm currently reading One Hundred Years of Solitude by G.G. Marquez. Pretty fucking great, really.

My g/f keeps pestering my to read Life of Pi, but I'm never in the mood for it. The prologue and the epilogue are good, though.

Finished Midworld, which was great, but the ending seemed to rush to a hasty conclusion, which, oddly enough, seems to be the same case with the one I'm just about done with--"Wolfling" by Gordon R. Dickson.
Wolfling is good, and seems to be the material that Gene Wolfe may have based his Torturer series on and Lucas the whole lightsaber concept...
I'm getting into all of these 60's Del Ray type books (mainly I find the cover art really cool and the writers back then seemed stronger across the board) and really enjoying it. You can pick up some neat vintage books like this at Goodwill for about a buck all the time.
I think I'm going to read a recent SF writer's compilation I just bought next...also have a William Gibson Neuromancer followup? waiting to be read.

Sci Fi rules!!! If someone could indicate a couple of modern writers that have the legs the old one's did, I'd like that...I'm really not into all the technobabble and psycho-intrigue-cleverness that seems to abound and render authors indistinguishable from one another these days.

Lucas light saber is just magic katanas... slice through anything. The fact that there is no blood is so that his movies maintain a PG rating.

Lucas ripped off cheap Japanese B-Movies and Westerns. He used to be a big Japanese-phile.

Vernor Vinge caught my imagination in kinda the same way as a lot of those old SF books (Ursula Le Guin, Andre Norton, Arthur Clarke), but I was in middle school and J-high when I read those, so make of it what you will.

BigGameHunter, if you haven't already read them, I, and many others here, highly recommend the scifi novels of Iain M. Banks. You have a treat in store for you my lad.

I haven't read anything by Banks, but I will definitely pick something up next chance I get.
Maybe I'll start with his first book and read through if I like him...haven't done that with anyone since Bradbury, I think.

I have a book you may like called something like 'Goddesses, whores, slaves and wives- women in classical antiquity'

I'm really getting into Romans and Greeks since visiting Greece last year- its a good book and lots of filthiness resides within

I couldnt get into Life of Pi, and Banks is great at sci fi and straight fiction.
I also like Jeff Noon, whi isnt quite sci fi but probably has similar appeal- kind of futuristic punk or something
I'm currently reading Spies by Michael Frayn (who wrote theplay Noises Off which is FANTASTIC). Liking it so far but only one chapterin

Read it!

Albeit a looong time ago, so I might reconsider a reread...

I went through a Bukowski/Burroughs phase about a decade+ ago when they were both alive...

I just saw "Bukowski: Born Into This"....a documentary on his life and loves.
