    About halfway through 'Cellars', an early 80's horror novel by John Shirley, and absolutely loving it so far.

    Finishing Thunderhead today - and it's a great read! Preston & Child sure know how to captivate and entertain me (at least).

    Next..... I don't have a multisided sided coin to flip, but am debating about either a King (Pet Sematary?), Barker (Imajica or Great and Secret Show), or maybe Mr. Hands (Braunbeck), keep picking up The Other off my bookshelf too...but my sci-fi books are asking for attention too! I recently picked up Snow Crash (Stephenson, plus have Anathem and Cryptonomicon by him), was also thinking of Dune as well.

    Decision, decisions....

    Just finished The Rats by Herbert. Very entertaining, grisly old school horror. The extensive back stories for incidental characters, while not bothering me in their existence, did sometimes bother me in how they were presented as just information dumps, but that's a minor quibble. Overall, big thumbs up.

    Finished Mr. Hands, and overall I was not too impressed with it, and rather disappointed. Maybe I was expecting something different.....

    Now, onto a new book I picked up this weekend, and I've been really wanting to read......Station Eleven, by Canadian author Emily St. John Mandel. This was a finalist for the National Book Award 2014, and won or has been nominated for many awards.

    Station Eleven was a very good read, glad I picked it up. Apparently this has been option for TV/film too!

    Now, onto another Canadian author... Joseph Boyden's The Orenda. This was highly recommended by the employee at the local Chapters store, and has a 4.25 rating on Goodreads with over 6400 ratings and 1100+ reviews.

    Gunslinger is good, but not great. The rest of the series gets SO much better.

    My reading has really slowed down lately, but I'm a hundred pages into The Troop and loving it.

    I loved The Gunslinger, possibly my second d favourite King so far. I dig the odd structure and different themes.

    Finished Angel of Darkness--good follow up to The Alienist. Read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline over the last couple of days--very enjoyable geekfest about a video game programmer who creates an online universe that people want to stay in and avoid reality that is modeled after 1980s pop culture (movies, video games and D&D).

    Currently reading The Tale of Genji.

    This happened with Doctor Sleep with me, ended up putting it down, might pick it up again one day. I'm currently reading the uncut version The Stand.

    Currently reading Defenders, by, Will McIntosh, an alien invasion novel. Part one was fast paced, brutal, and page turning, but, I'm getting slogged down with the second part. It's only over 500 pages long, so I hope it picks right back up.

    Re-reading The Smoke, by, Tom Barling, a superb British gangster novel.

    Just over a 1/3 of the way through The Orenda - for me it's not working. I mean it's a very interesting look into the views of both the natives in Canada (Huron, Iroquois, etc.) and the French missionaries (from New France), and how they interact with each other, but aside from a few battles, this is dragging on for me.

    Setting that aside, and finally reading Pet Sematary

    Hey guys,

    Haven't been around for a while. I am sad to say that I am STILL reading Firestarter. It kept putting me to sleep and I just stopped reading it. Then because I didn't finish it, I couldn't move on so I haven't read anything in a year now. I will have to keep trying. The sun is back so reading outside might help.
