    Note everyone has a hit every time. I'm a Kipling fan myself.

    Music improves the poems. Cold Iron, Normans & Saxons, Our Fathers of Old are all titles of albums Kipling poems set to music. I'm breathlessly wanting for the reissue of "The Undertakers Horse".

    Currently I'm tearing through a series called "Vampire Earth." I forget the author... E E Knight maybe.... something with a double letter initial at any rate.... I'm also reading "City of Ash" with(but mostly to because my throught holds out longer) my fiance after having finished "City of Glass."
    Oh, and I'm reading a book called "Stolen" that I grabed off the kid's room shelf at random when I ran out of bathroom reading.

    On a slightly less related note I was hoping some of you guy's could help me out. I'm trying to remember the name of a series I was reading back in middle school that a friend that I've since lost contact with lent me. The only thing I can remember about the books is that one of the main characters is a woman who uses true name magic, one is half some AWESOME race that can sense things with the surfaced veins on his body, and the third is... ummm.... big and strong I think..... Oh, and they travel over a root of a Tree through the world and come out very very much later..... trying to think of the title evokes the image of a harp for some reason. Sorry I can't provide more info. I tried this question on yahoo answers and didn't really get anything very helpfull other than the fact that I now know it's not Wayfarer's Redemption. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out. Oh yeah, I just rememberd that while they were traveling on the root the girl had to use her truename magic to get all three of them (one at a time) through a fire of some kind and it subtly altered all of them because she was chanting her image of them... kinda like going through a forge and burning off all the impurities. I remember thinking how awesome that would be at the time....

    This is far more fun than it has any right to be.

    School reading is Injustice and the Care of Souls. I'll have to respond to a few vignettes in it while trying not to pay attention to the Buffalo Sabres hockey game. Win or go home.

    Pleasure reading is Ireland's Pirate Queen: The True Story of Grace O'Malley, 1530 - 1603. Grabbed it out of a bargain bin at Barnes & Noble for a few dollar bills that I had in my pocket. I'm always looking for literary works that I can interpret into leather projects.

    Thumbs up

    The Complete Chronicles of Conan, Initiation, and Death and Dishonour, by Robert E. Howard, & Elisabeth Haich, respectively; the third having been written by various authors, including Nathan Long, C.L. Werner, and David Earle. All excellent books, BTW.


    Next will be The Complete Works of Lovecraft. Can't wait.

    I also have in my possession The Lost Horizon II. The first one, written in 1933 and introduced the mythical Himalayan city of Shangri-La, written by James Hilton, was awesome, so i hope the 2nd one is at least half as good. We will see.

    Re-reading "The Cell" by John Miller, Michael Stone, and Chris Mitchell. It's about the 9/11 attacks and the Al-Qaeda conspiracy behind them. It served as inspiration for "The Path to 9/11" (2006) television miniseries and its sources were cited in the 9/11 Commission Report.

    Robert Howard and Lovecraft ran in the same circles and had a good friendship for a number of years before Robert's life took a turn for the worst.

    I now pick up American Transcendentalism for a second time and read as much as I write. I need a break from school but the summer isn't going to be any easier.

    Might start up Neil deGrasse Tyson's Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandries sometime this week. It's been on our shelf for a year or two now, heh.
