I'm collecting 'bookazines' about classic aircraft at the moment and plan to have a deeper read very soon...
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Blake's 7: Trojan Horse (s4 fanfic) - Blake's 7: Through the Needle's Eye (s2 fanfic)

Anyone who dug X-Files or Fringe should check out a comic series called Federal Bureau of Physics. There are two volumes of it in collected form.

I'm going to have to read that one sooner or later. I recently read Russel Brand's Booky Wooky 2 and although he can be quite clever at times, I was pretty much turned off by his somewhat amoral peccadilloes.

I just completed Terry Pratchett's Turtle Recall and am about to start a book on Sir Francis Drake. And sometime in the future, the three volume set of Star Wars novels written in the style of Shakespeare. Wish me luck.

The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters.
I bought it randomly...they say "never judge a book by its cover" (I am not sure how you say it in English, but you get what I mean Wink ) but it was beautiful and the synopsis sounded great. And I donīt regret so far. I am in chapter 3 and loving it. I think I always know when I will like a book - I usually forget to get off the train in the subway in my station when I like a book so much. It happened to me yesterday when I started reading this Grin I had to go back two stations Grin
Definitely a good sign Wink

It's a good book, it deals frankly with some of the horrors Connolly has encountered in his life - his mother abandoning him and his sister, the physical and psychological torture inflicted by a mentally unstable aunt, molestation and rape at the hands of his father and his crippling addictions to alcohol and cocaine.

But through it at all shines a sense of hope - what terror young Billy was faced with was also matched by his joy of becoming a folk musician and the camaraderie he found as a welder in the Glasgow docks and his time as a soldier in the Territorial Army.

I used to like Connolly, till that awful standup he did about a hostage at the time who was later beheaded, jokes about the guys filapina wife and Connollys arrogant response to members of the audience who protested, and the dismissal of the press who asked for an apology as parasites! No time for him now

I am reading The Symbol by Dan Brown

I am not sure if I am not engaged with the book or it is poorly written or I am just fed up with the whole Robert Langdon series but I am really struggling with this one.

I feel like I am nearly half way through and yet the plot line has barely advanced since the first couple of pages

It has a neat concept and been wanting to try it for a while now.

Finished my reread of the Shining so I can read Doctor Sleep. I will though have a break from King and read vacuouswastrel.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/assassins-apprentice-h-por.jpg

I'm not big on fantasy but this came highly recommended.

Turn of the Screw. I felt I cheated in the past by watching the film based on it (The Innocents). So I'm trying to read the actual novel.
"You'd never get a cat to be a servant. You ever see a cat return a stick? "Hey, man! You threw the stick, you go get it yourself! I'm busy! If you wanted the stick so bad, why'd you throw it away in the first place?"

Book 3 of 'The Hunger Games'. I've developed a bit of an appetite for dystopian young adult fiction, and have been pleasantly surprised by both the 'Hunger Games' and 'Divergent' series - they're really rather good. (NB I've not seen any of the movies, so judgement is based only on the books).

'Criminal Intent' by Trevor Baxendale, the latest B7 novel from Big Finish - happily back in the known B7 universe, after the two 'Lucifers'! Full review pending.

'Shroud for a Nightingale' by PD James for book club.

'A Dance With Dragons' by GRR Martin, because I've had 'A Song of Ice and Fire' on permanent loop since discovering them a few years ago.

I recently re-read a few of the Dalgliesh books in memory of her passing. I remember 'Death of an Expert Witness' completely absorbed me as a teenager.

But IMO PD James finest work was 'The Children of Men' - it's just a shame the film (as is usually the case) didn't live up to expectation.
