That actually sounds really good. Thanks for that, I might track it down. I do enjoy a good integrity bashing.
I'm off to get some sun now and convert some carbon dioxide into sugar.

Finished Feist's latest offering the other day,always a bittersweet thing.Wait 12 months for the next one then tear through it at lightning speed enjoying it immensely as usual and go back to waiting again.Even more depressing cause i know there's only one more Trilogy to go and he's all finished. Cry


Time to start looking for something new again,still waiting to hear about a Book from a certain Admin.

Okay cool!

I'm also about to start reading a book of R.E.Howard's Conan work that reprints the stories not only in the order that he wrote them, but it's taken from his original writings, typos and all. So no bastardisation by De Camp or Carter.

I'm now reading Hand of Isis by Jo Graham.  Egyptian historical fiction book about Cleopatra's life, so lots of Ceaser, Mark Anthony, Roman/Egpytian arguments and royal struggles for power, and gods!  lots of mythology.  it's very good.

Sounds cool, I remember reading Mystic River (ancient Egypt based adventure novel) by Wilbur Smith when I was a teenager and enjoying it.

Really?  All done?  I used to read all his stuff as it came out, but I'm sure I'm a couple series behind at this point.  I hadn't heard he was wrapping it up.  Bummer.....

Yeah,he's got all the titles for his last stories listed at his Website.He really want to complete the entire story while he's still alive and leave a complete legacy.It is a shame that there's only 3 more Books to go but they re-read well so i'll at least still have that.

The death of David Gemmell was probably an eye opener as Gemmell left two series unfinished

Kinda wished I'd persevered with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, as I just saw the film last night and it was very very good. Recommend seeing it when it comes to Australia in March (I think). Still, as a book genre, I just don't know if it is my thing.

I just finished Patricia Cornwell's "Scarpetta Factor". I've read the whole series but not sure I can keep going with it - it's just going in circles now.

Now starting on Kathy Reichs "206 Bones" - I love the Tempe Brennan series.

I myself am reading the CIA magic manual, there is some seriously interesting tricks in there.  I am also reading Freya Starks Valley of the Assassins http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freya_Stark which is quite good if you like that sort of thing.
