If you dig the Ringworld series you absolutely must read Protector.

Will do. At some point I'd like to read the entire Known Space saga. Niven is brilliant at creating and describing worlds and characters, sometimes I just wish his plots were as riveting as his locations.

'Allo Gord,
Glad to see you seem to be feeling better.

Just read the late Harry Browne's How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World, 1973, for the first time. Browne, who ran for President on the Libertarian Party ticket, discusses a wide range of issues including chapters on Freedom from Marriage Problems, Freedom from Insecurity, and Freedom from Pretense, in addition, of course, to Freedom from Government, and he also discussed what he called "traps"- The Despair Trap, The Burning-Issue Trap, and others.
IMHO this is an excellent book, but it is out of print and very expensive at Amazon. I had my local library get it for me.

Also recently finished Fall of Giants by Ken Follett, 2010, "Book One of the Century Trilogy," and loved it. Good characters, plots, and love stories, set in the first third of the 20th Century during the fall of the Russian Czar and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. An interesting and easy way to learn about WW I. I eagerly await the sequels.

Finished reading Vathek. Very unusual story. I definitely recommend it. How to describe the setting, hmm. It's Islamic religious fiction + myth stories + superstition + magic + supernatural stuff. It's basically a bunch of scenes of the story of Vathek and his quest for supernatural power.

Free version on Project Gutenberg.
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/2060/2060-h/2060-h.htm

Parent link:
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2060

Here's a tiny excerpt from the end. This is the what happened to Carathis when her punishment in the infernal kingdom (basically: Hell) began.
Instantaneously the haughty forehead of the intrepid princess was corrugated with agony; she uttered a tremendous yell, and fixed, no more to be withdrawn, her right hand upon her heart, which was become a receptacle of eternal fire.


Started Frankenstein. I'm on the 10th page and I like it so far.

I just started Vortex by Robert Charles Wilson. It's the third book in the series following Spin (which was fantastic and won a Hugo) and Axis (which was a huge disappointment following Spin). I'm only 50 pages in so far, but it's going well.

Finished Frankenstein. Basically, there are plenty of differences between the book and the movies. Some of them are:

1. The process of building the creature was only a paragraph at the beginning of chapter 5, but none of the crazy machinery that you see in the movies was present. Not even stitching the creature together is mentioned. The novel just says "I built the creature with my tools".
2. The creature has no name. It's only referred to as "the creature" or "the monster". It is NOT called Frankenstein.
3. The time in the novel spans over 3 years. In the movies it's generally only a few days or weeks. The creature escaped on the day he came to life, and didn't see Victor Frankenstein again for 2 years.
4. Victor Frankenstein was an idiot when it came to taking care of his loved ones and protecting them from the creature.
5. Victor Frankenstein may have had a weak consitution since he spent nearly a year, within the three year time span, in bed, sick. He had fevers at least three times lasting months each.
6. There are no angry villagers with pitchforks and torches.
7. The creature was intelligent and could speak.
8. The creature wanted to be good, but it was faced with hatred from everyone who saw it, so he eventually started reciprocating the hatred and became a murderer. A lot of Frankenstein's family and friends died because of the creature.

Just finished reading The Oxford Book of English Detective stories.

This:
http://www.amazon.com/Oxford-Book-Engli ... 772&sr=8-1

ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT. I highly recommend it to everybody.

Am now rereading The Oxford Book of English Ghost Stories. I´m a horror fan more than anything else, and this was my first time reading a lot of detective fiction. I am now a fan.

The only person on amazon who had a review for the book said it contains some stories that aren´t detective stories. He´s correct. However, nearly every story in the book is superb, so I´m quite happy with some of the stories not being detective stories.

I remember reading that when it first came out. I should read it again to see if it's still as good as I remember.

If you like that book, you might also like Robert Ringer's first three books.

David Day's Tolkien's Ring

Unless you really like Tolkien and are willing to accept inaccurate retellings of mythology to convince yourself that what's said in this book has solid scholarly backing, don't bother with this one. He gives no references to the things he sites, and for good reason -- they don't exist in the form he gives them.

It's not as bad as an Acharya S. Shamahamalingadingdong-based Youtube video, but it's unpleasantly leaning in that direction.

The Sense of an Ending, Julian Barnes

If the government were burning books (again) I'd recommend this one as your last public read. And then all of the author's previous work, in secret.

That was horrific and hilarious. Like salt and vinegar chips.

I recently read Altered Carbon, by Richard Morgan.

Which seemed like an extrapolation of Larry Niven's Long Arm of Gil Hamilton, which was an extrapolation (or an homage, depending on your point of view), of E.E. Doc Smith's style, with some William Gibson thrown into the mixing bowl. And a dash of Blade Runner.

I'm quite eager to read his next book.

Just read "The good man Jesus and the scoundrel Christ" by Philip Pullman.
http://www.amazon.com/Good-Man-Jesus-Sc ... 000&sr=8-1

The premise is that Mary gave birth to twins which she named Jesus and Christ respectively. Retelling several of the stories of the New testament, only wording them a bit diferent, and attributing to Christ that he "jazzed up" some miracles his brother Jesus supposedly made.

I enjoyed it, and it was an easy read. You'll probably get the most out of it, if you are familiar with the stories beforehand.
4 out of 5 from me.

Peace

I finally sound a website that would sell me a brand new copy of Katharine Briggs' The Anatomy of Puck. Only cost me $56, shipping included ('cause I had a $5-off coupon from buying a previous book from them -- a used copy of Harry Garms' The Natural History of Europe, for which I paid $6.70 plus another $10 shipping). A company in the UK (StratfordBooks) prints it, then ship it to the internetses company (Alibris), where it will be "processed" and shipped to me.

Aaaaand that's why I can expect to see it on approximately Mar 16, 2012. :(

Currently reading Quiet by Susan Cain. It's for a book club that I joined. All the other attendees that attend meetings are a bunch of housewives. It feels weird when I'm with them.

The book's good so far. It's basically just talking about introverts and their impact on society on a macro scale and a micro scale.

Finished The Exorcist. Spectacularly well written. Definitely recommend it. It's written in such a way to make it look like Regan might not be truly possessed. But it leans toward an actual possession.

I didn't see the movie until maybe five years ago. I was not impressed, and I don't see how anyone could ever have found it scary. Apart from the loud noises that always make me jump in movies, I was almost bored. How does the book differ from the movie?

The movie is extremely faithful to the book. However, in the movie, it's clearly a demonic possession. In the book, they attempt to make il look like it might be a psychological problem that Regan has. So in the book, it looks like the reader can come to either conclusion.
