    Well, I hate to admit it, but...

    I've just re-started Revenge of the Rose. I got about ten pages in last year, was interrupted by something...then by life...and only now that we're in the dead of winter once more am I able to get back to my reading. I am liking this tale so far, though I must admit to loving Elric's more pathetic physical state in the beginning of Fortress of the Pearl a bit more.

      I just finished Neuromancer. I was also reading a friend's feature-length novel manuscript, but I won't name that for privacy purposes; finished it on the same day as the Gibson.

      My choices from here are a slim looking novel with wide pages called "Drinkwater", and another Gibson, "Pattern Recognition".

        I'm now starting, The Sword of the Dawn. I don't know if it's the passage of time, (40 years!) but Hawkmoon seems a right prig! And he seems to put onto Oladahn a bit, he always seems to be doing the menial work while Hawkmoon gets all broody. I definitely like D'Averc a lot this time around. And the books seem very thin, Mr. M seems to give us a lot more these days.

          Seems to be a lot of members reading Hawkmoon at the moment, I'm just under halfway through The Runestaff.

            I'm still on Storm of Swords, but I bought the new Jewel in the Skull and I'll be reading it again soon. It sure has a cool cover!

                    Right now I'm debating. About to go peruse the shelves and try and decide to hit the mystery/thiller section, the sf/fantasy section or just the general section. Who knows.

                      I have finished Hav by Jan Morris. It was a very clever, but not too knowing book. She brings out the best of what we would like to find in Europe and then the worst. Is this a book that is one of looking back.

                      Anyway, on to Lieut Gulliver Jones: His Vacation.

                        Finished A Clash of Kings, and how many cliffhangers does he leave? Moved onto The Red Prince by Timothy Snyder. I shall also be looking to finish The Runestaff sometime over the weekend (Look out Elwher. If I get bored, you'll be getting another list!) and I shall be moving on to the Castle Brass trilogy after that.

                          I hope you don't get bored Guv!, I've stalled on uploading your previous lists - all my free time of late has been dedicated to getting a friend out of a bit of a pickle - that seems to be over so I might get back to them next week.

                          BTW reading The Sheepfarmer's Daughter by Elizabeth Moon.

                            You're ok for a bit, I'm halfway through Count Brass instead.

                            'Course that means there'll soon be enough for another list...

                              Finished the Kavan and loved it from start to finish.
