    • I was lent The Tenderness of Wolves by a friend yesterday, which I've promised to read so I'll be starting that once I've finished The Adventures of Una & Catherine. I've got no idea what it's about, though no doubt I'll find out once I start reading it.
      _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
      _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
      _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
      _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

            • Started The Tenderness of Wolves last night. Just read the first chapter so far, it's a murder mystery set in 1860s Canada. So far so good. I'll also be reading the revised edition of The Eternal Champion for my outdoor excursions (since it fits in my jacket pocket better than TToW).

                    Hmmm. I may have to put them back on my re-read list. Thanks for the reminder Rothgo, can't beat a bit of Slippery Jim.

                    Getting near the end of The Unforsaken Hiero and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I wouldn't have minded if it had been three times the size.

                    Going to put back The Iron Dream, again, and go for the Drake biog I've had on my shelf for quite some time. That should go nicely with the Buccaneers... book I've got on the go.
                    You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

                      I've always wanted to read that but never have. I don't know why.

                        • When I'm finally finished grading midterms I plan on some heavy lifting: Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky. I read it in a graduate school haze many years ago. It seemed to jump off my shelf on Monday.
