THE WIZARD HUNTERS by Martha Wells (a sequel to her DEATH OF A NECROMANCER and another book in the Ille Rein series, this one featuring Nicholas's daughter Tremaine.

TRADING IN DANGER by Elizabeth Moon, a SF adventure about a young woman who loses face because of a foolish mistake she made in the academy, who gets a chance to redeem herself by piloting a ship bound for salvage...but of course, being a Moon novel, nothing is quite what it seems, and the heroine is now off on an adventure where her military training may be the only way for her and the crew to survive.

THE HEDGE KNIGHT by George R.R. Martin, a tale set in the world of his fantasy series before the beginning of the Ice and Fire books. Dunk the hedge knight want to earn his name, but of course, he is just a poor hedge knight with no money and no means. But naturally, life never remains what it seems and his opportunity comes to prove himself on the field of combat and in other ways.

All this between trying to finish my own novel WANDERING LARK so I can get it ito the publishers in time to beat the deadline (and meanwhile DRAGON'S TONGUE, I am told, will now have cover art my Matt Stawicki, and the preliminary sketch should be delivered of by the end of this week!)

The Magician ... Somerset Maugham
A good fictional novel inspired by Aleister Crowley. I couldn't put it down last time I read it, so I'm starting on it again. It will definitely keep your morbid curiosity arroused (if your a "Beast" fan)!

Post-Captain by Patrick O'Brien. Just started on the Aubrey/Maturin novels after seeing Master and Commander. So far I'm finding it subtly hilarious, and full of good Age of Sail porn, as it were.

I just finished a bunch of books from the library. Today I am reading a mystery called "Friends and Enemies" by Susan Oleksiw, unless that gets boring then I will probably try "Biggie and the Devil Diet". I love reading. :D

Currently one of the infinite horde of mediocre books based on the Arthurian Legends to kill time till I can get to the bookstore.

I did find a family geneology book last night, so i may switch to that.
