    I am not currently reading it, but was wondering if anyone was familiar with a series of books that I think the first one is called "The Mistersinger" or something like that. It's about a guy that does magic by playing music on a guitar like instrument. He plays current day music but the instrument turns it to magic but it never totally turns out the way he was intending it to.

    I loved it - of course, I loved it because of the Charlie/Anansi relationship. I really, really liked American Gods. If Gaiman ever writes anything more featuring Shadow, I'll snap it up in a heartbeat (I did pick up Fragile Things just for "Monarch of the Glen").

    I have to share-although it's not about reading. Ok, maybe a little.

    I went to a Used Book Store yesterday in NY, and found a AD&D Player's Handbook (for $4), and a AD&D Dragonlance Sourcebook (for $3). One of the best prices I had for older editon D&D books. (Ok, ok, the best price I ever had was $1 for a 3.0 book)

    There's nothing to fear except fear itself and, of course, the boogeyman.

    I do not play them here or there, I do not play them anywhere, I do not play them with a fox. I do not mash that button box. I do not like MMO games. In the end ther're all the same.

    "Thunder of Time" by James F David.

    It's a book about rifts in time that intermix the periods of the dinosaurs with modern periods. For example, Portland was suddenly rifted and there were dinosaurs all over the place. These rifts were caused by nuclear testing, ripping a hole in space-time.

    Anyway, so far, so good. Plus, I totally dig on any story with dinosaurs, megalodons, and time travel.

    I'm reading The Difference Engine by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, which was probably the first popular steampunk novel. I'm also reading The Eisenhorn Omnibus by Dan Abnett. I'm reading that for background info on the w40k Dark Heresy game I'm playing.

    Currently reading A Cruel Wind by Glen Cook. It's a single volume republishing of his Dread Empire trilogy. Very good stuff. And you can clearly see the influence it (and the Black Company) had on Steven Erikson's Malazan Empire series. Impatiently waiting for Erikson's next book this Fall

    Breezed through Raymond Feist's latest, Wrath of a Mad God.

    For some noir, I read L.A. Confidential (James Ellroy). Then Charlie Huston's Already Dead for modern noir with a supernatural twist.

    I've enjoyed every book from Tim Powers. Most recently Three Days to Never. He always surprises me with some truly creative ideas.

    In non-fiction, I just started Guns, Germs and Steel.

    to cplmac

    The book you are referring to is Spellsinger. Alan Dean Foster I think?? There are a few others in the series but Day of Dissonance is the only other title I remember.

    Read them over 20 years ago... yikes. I think they went to the used book store during a move, but if I still have them they're yours for the taking. I'll check the shelves and what boxes I still have.

    Well, I've finished up The Descent by Jeff Long. The first few chapters were spellbinding and had a palpable air of tension. But, once the Long more fully reveals the "hadal," devil like entities that reside in deep subterranean recesses, the dramatic tension is mostly lost. From there, it is still an interesting story, but more of a psychological thriller than a horror story. Of course, Long still manages to throw in a few succor punches along the way with some particularly gory or perverse imagery.

    Now, I have started on "The Ruins," by Scott Smith. I plan to only go see the movie after I have finished reading the book.

    Actually read the whole series while over in the Persian Gulf in 90 and 91. They were a good read. Wasn't a lot to do over there when you were lucky enough to get a little "down time". It was over there that I got introduced to D&D (2E).

    Captain Alatriste Series

    I just finished "El Capitan Alatriste (tr. Captain Alatriste)" and plan to move to the next book in the series "Limpieza de Sangre (tr. Purity of blood)".

    Who knows, maybe one day the movie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alatriste will be available in the US. (Already in my Netflix list).

    What do you know? There is a roleplaying game (Note: Website is in Spanish) http://www.devir.es/producto/alatriste/inicio/index.htm
