    Passed out well before dawn TF. So, I still have a bit to go, but definitely . If you liked Neverwhere, I think you'll like Un Lun Dun. Its a bit different in tenor - more whimsy and not gothic - but it is very good. I kind of wish I read Un Lun Dun first and then read Kraken, rather than t'other way round.

    Almost finished with Un Lun dun. Likely before dawn. Then, back to the Le Guin. I am DEFINITELY staying clear of Dark Albert. Camus is a genius, but I'm up for the light. May sneak a few pages of either Swords and Roses or Into the Media Web in between.

    Didn't Wanderlust recently pick up a copy of The Telling as well, or did I spill some powder en route to the blunderbuss again?

    You will certainly like that novel, TF. It's essentially a naturalist novel about people who live in a country you've never visited...except, of course, it's actually a novel about people who never lived on a planet that doesn't exist in a year that hasn't come about yet. Ergo, it's excellent!

    Same here GC!
    And another fine example of said concurrences of events is that im away to start later none other than The Telling by Ursula K LeGuin which was kindly supplied by Pebble

    Wrapped around the re-reads of Breakfast In The Ruins and Behold The Man, I finished Ursula Le Guin's The Telling last week, and I'm now 103 pages into Albert Camus' The Plague. Yep, those readings followed the posts from Kevin, Mike and Thingfish over on the "culture" thread...plus, weirdly enough, Mrs. GC and I went to dinner with some relatives back on the 20th and during the dinner discussion, it turned out that my uncle-in-law, who has been a member of the same book club in Manhattan for more than 40 years, is a huge fan of The Plague! Mrs. GC was stunned at the concurrence of events. And that's an example of the reasons why I check into this message board a lot.

    I read them in reverse order, so far excepting the first one - some day I'll come accross a copy, no doubt. None the worse for that. His best work, for me. Nice idea, nice idea for structuring the seriies also.

    I found myself getting board with the Oliver & Parrot book and picked up the first history of the Runestaff, The Jewel in the Skull. Finished in under a couple of days, first time I have re-read it since my early teens. Please to say it stood up very well, cracking place. On to book 2.

    After the Well of the unicorn I'll read The scrayling tree.

    I picked up much of my early Moorcock collection from Preston market in the late 80's, Tom. We probably elbowed each other out of the way to get to one of the many bargains to be had.
