Wonderful novel.

It got a little plug from John McCain on the Letterman show the other night. I'm almost done, a very good book.

after Wilde Silas started goin on about kids books, I picked up Huck Finn again, I read it when I was a kid, Mark Twain was the first author I read where I had to read everything he wrote, so I also wanted to read Twain as an adult. I have to say I'm enjoying it probably more than I did when I was a kid :)

I'm reading The Best of H.P. Lovecraft, I get on a Lovecraft jag once every few years.

That book is incredible - I think Stephenson has begun to surpass Phillip K. Dick. Before I read SC I thought The Matrix was sublime.

This book didn't do it for me - I'm way too critical of Steven King sometimes, though.
I think some of his work is genius - like Low Men in Yellow Coats from Hearts in Atlantis.
