Explanation is - I hope so - unnecessary Wink

I've just finished Soubiran's "The Doctors".
Intresting book about medicine student as his struggle with school,
hospital reality etc etc. Featuring few maby not gore but realistic description of wounds made by various viruses. Everything circles around the reality-theme of life, people's attitude which in some moments is just outrageous. Still, it's worth to get it.

Leopold Ritter Von Sacher-Masoch's Venus in Furs was the last book I finished; a remarkably astute book.

I'm currently reading the Marquis de Sade's 120 Days of Sodom which is almost unreadably perverse but fascinating nonetheless but, to take the edge off (and to prevent a slide into total depravity) I'm also reading Terry Pratchett's A Hat Full of Sky which, although a children's book, has got to be one of his finest works; he just seems to have gotten better and better over the years in spite of his health.

The Gift of Fear and Just 2 Seconds - Gavin De Becker


Before I got into EP/Bodyguard work , these were the first 2 books handed to me. Essential reads if you have any interest in that type of profession.


Other than that , I like books with scantily clad women and runeswords that thirst for blood

I will read the Elric saga once again when the chill Autumn air caresses me within her cold embrace

Although nowhere near as cold as the North East,it still can get pretty chill Fall/Winter ..

There's even a ski resort 20 minutes from the strip ....

Currently I am reading the Amber series by Roger Zelazny. When I finish that one up, I will return to Nietzsche. Great reading for the long winter nights.

. . . Aren't your winter books the one's that make your wife jealous for your attention, El? I have read a few (or ten) myself. Lately I have been reading anything Arsene Lupin by Leblanc. He is the opposite character of Sherlock Holmes. Maybe some of you guys would love these stories . . .

Nope, when my wife reads 'Nietzsche' on the cover of my book, she becomes exceptionally annoying. I have decided not to read Nietzsche this coming winter but to stick to Lovecraft. Recently acquired Michel Houellebecq's 'Lovecraft: against the world, against life'. Seems like a nice read.

Going in the moment through Vernoica Stallwood's "Deathspell".
I must say it's a very good psychological crime book with the main theme of
evil hidden in a mind of a child.

K2: Life and Death on the World's Most Dangerous Mountain, by Ed Viesturs. I am fascinated by the guys who climb the 8,000 meter peaks.

I bought the third omnibus with Dutch translations of Lovecraft stories. So the winter will be filled with Lovecraft.

I just finished Lords of the North by Bernard Cornwell. It is set in England in 878, during the time of King Alfred, when the Danes and Saxons were duking it out. Cornwell borrowed from the Beowulf poet, writing about the whale road and spear Danes.

It was pretty much crap and, like a Clancy, I coudn't put it down.

As of my 2 hour wait this morning for a no show Simplex technician, I have finished my second reading of Hunter S. Thomspon's The Curse of Lono. Next up .... Not sure. Was thinking of heading into Palahniuk territory and finally reading Choke.
