Books on my plate right now

I'm rarely able to read a book all the way through without a beginning another one halfway or so through the first. Sometimes I'll have 4-5 books going at one time, and the first one will be the last one finished. Not the most efficient way I guess but that's how I roll.

Here is what I'm in the middle of reading or is queued up for the near future

Stand on Zanzibar - John Brunner
The Mote in God's Eye - Larry Niven/Jerry Pournelle
Downbelow Station - CJ Cherryh
Moon of Skulls - Robert E Howard
The Quincux of Time - James Blish

I told a friend about this blog and he recommended Hyperion by Dan Simmons. Apparently it is quite the epic. Also This Perfect Day by Ira Levin, recommended by my first commenter Craig B. So with that and the above I think I'm good for October. Anyone else have recommendations? I'm all ears...


  1. Niven, I'm a big fan, but I haven't read Mote, curiously. In fact, I haven't been reading many books lately, just comic books... gotta get back on track...

  2. 'just comic books' - I love it! don't sweat it, comics have their place too. If you dig Niven cant go wrong with Mote, it is considered one of his best with good reason.
