Just finished reading Thr3e by Ted Dekker and I have no idea what I'll read next.

Just finished up a couple of epics by Dan Simmons: The Terror and Drood. Both historical, with a touch of the fantastical. As usual per Simmons, both are compelling reads with richly drawn characters and intricate plotting on a very large scale. Drood features Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins and of course Mr. Edwin Drood, and is a story dealing with the last five years of Dickens's life and the mysteries contained within. The Terror is a telling of the doomed voyages of the Erebus and Terror in the 19th century. Wonderful detail in both of these novels.

[Opened the Scroll of Ressurection...]

Just got "Life, The Universe and Everything", Douglas Adams, from the mailbox today.

Two days...and it's gone.

Anyway, it will look pretty good-looking on my shelf beside #1 and #2.... :P

PS: My Lex Live DVD is just arriving too, maybe it is on a plane or a truck now...who knows?!

Just started reading Robert Low's "Oathswarn Trilogy" all about Vikings - love those Vikings. Anyway, I emailed him to let him know I was really enjoying the first book "The Whale Road". He emailed back 1 hour later to tell me he was a Glass Hammer fan and loved Lex Rex! Very cool!
