I'm currently reading all the in-game books of Morrowind. Short, but some of them are actually pretty good.

Reading through the SW:ROTS novel by Matthew Woodring Stover. Re-reading actually to get all the little differences from the movie.

Finished The Brothers Karamazov and am working on The Sickness Unto Death by Kierkegaard. My particular favorite characters in The Brothers K were Alyosha, Father Zossima and the boy Illusha, although I identified more with Dmitri and particularly Ivan. Dostoyevski is definitely one of my favorite authors.

Currently reading "La sombra del viento" (The Shadow of the wind) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I quite enjoy it. I'm reading it in Spanish but my boss says the English translation is well done.

Yet another WW2/holocaust movie ruined by American actors. If people are in Germany, they should speak German, not English with American accents or in Valkyries case, English accents. Please tell me the book is better/more bearable(aside from being about genocide)

Been reading some of the Laxdaela Saga; it's kinda hard to keep track of all the people in it, some of whom even have the exact same name!

Also, still loving Wheel of Time (still on book 6)!

I occasionally check up on my swordsman skills with "The Heart of Kendo" By Darrel Max Craig, also read up on Renaissance (NOT Olympic) fencing here and there. Good stuff.

Finished with Neuromancer and disappointed by the read, not in the book, but I just find William Gibson a difficult writer.

Heading over to Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore because I miss Murakami so much. I can't remember the last time I've been addicted to a writer's style so much.

Finally finished Master & Commander after being distracted by exam revision. I must say, I'm glad to have read it, for it was very engaging and, indeed, enjoyable to read. Also stormed through Mr. Midshipman Hornblower, which seemed a lot simpler after rather more technical Master & Commander. Still good, though.

I'm now about a third of the way through Lieutenant Hornblower. I've still got Hornblower and the Hotspur left to read after that, then perhaps I can consider buying more!

Thanks to all who recommended them!

Ever read any of Neal Stephenson's works, particularly Snow Crash?

Think of Deus Ex, but with MMOs, psychoactive drugs via the Internet, and a katana and minigun-wielding pizza deliveryman as a protagonist.

Yes, I've heard of this man and book a lot on the Deus Ex 3 forums. I was curious about it at first, but I have to read anything that involves katana and pizza in the same sentence.

Been reading Dan Simmons' Hyperion - it has an interesting story structure, with several different stories embedded in a larger one. I also like the idea of "time-debts" incurred by traveling through space.

I've been reading some Sherlock Holmes stories. They're actually quite entertaining. Decided to read the stories after playing several Sherlock Holmes video games.

N.K. Sanders' translation of Gilgamesh. I've reached Utnapishtim's account. The epic repetition is wearing a little thin but at least it gets to the point, unlike the classical epics and their pages and pages of circumlocution as when a fly reaches the window, and, bashing into it, recoils dizzily and turns again, circling the room for another way out, or a moth, drawn to the lightbulb, falls and, cont, p.1094

Aeneid V? My particular favourite is when Virgil parallels Aeneas to the speck of dust atop Olypus' height; "pater Aeneas" and so forth.

I'm reading Chaucer's "Troilus and Criseyde" at the moment, myself.

Recently got a bunch of Star Wars books. Just finished Shadows of the Empire and the first two books of the Han Solo trilogy. Soon, onto the post-RotJ books, I suppose.

And the first two Darth Bane books, if I can get my hands on them.

And The Phantom of the Opera. Saw a pretty good movie version of it recently, and I haven't read the book since I was ten...so I figured I might as well reread it.

After I'm done with the Star Wars books.


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

In fact, I'm reading Star Fist: Technokill right now. Along with whatever I happen to find. Just finished reading David Weber's "By Heresies Distressed", the series (which began with "Off Armaggedon Reef") is arguably one of the top 10 Science Fiction stories I've ever read.
