I loved The New York Trilogy.
Planning to re-read it before the end of the year.

Currently re-reading CATHR and reading Lem's The Futurological Congress for the first time.

I'm coming to the end of The Golden now, around forty pages left to read, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. A five star read by all accounts.

Re: Recent Reading

Aside from finishing up 'The Golden' tonight, I just read an interesting little novelette-in-verse by the title of 'My Travels to the Isle of Carcosa' by Steven A. Williams. It appears to have been self-published and is (surprise-surprise) set within the KIY Mythos, taking place in equal parts between Carcosa and New Orleans. In spite of the reputation self-published works can sometimes carry with them, I actually found this to be a solidly entertaining read. Certainly well worth the low price which is being asked for a print copy (less than 5 here in the UK). If you're a KIY fan then I recommend giving it a go.

Just started Hostage to the Devil by Malachi Martin. A fascinating book by a brilliant writer.

Yes, I read this a few years ago and found it creepy and engaging.

Re: Recent Reading

Revisiting Schopenhauer's (The Philosopher) The Wisdom of Life. So much of contemporary "philosophy" is trash compared to anything written by one of the greatest individuals to have had to tolerate this bargain bin universe.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"

Re: Recent Reading

Right now I'm re-reading Stephen R. Donaldson's sci-fi series The Gap Cycle, which was a series of 5 books that were published in the early-to-mid 1990's. I first read this series way back in the year 2000. My initial plan was to maybe re-read the first 3 books this year and the last 2 next year. Anyway, I started them about a week and a half ago and already I'm halfway through book 3, ha ha.
