OK, Survey Time

Now that all the major awards of the year have been announced, what are you reading these days?
I'm currently reading John Harvey's Flesh and Blood and next on the pile is Richard Marinick's Boyos.

About to finish The Murder Exchange by Kernick, then either on to Melancholy Baby by Parker, or Tonight I Said Goodbye by Koryta.

Just finished Sugartown by Loren Estleman, in the middle of Sean Doolittle's Dirt, and will probably try one by Ken Bruen next.

Just finished Get Carter by Ted Lewis, and I'll be moving onto Grifter's Game by Larry B. Hard Case Crime do wonderful things.

Oh my, Mental Radio by Upton Sinclair, The Mystery of Capital by Hernando de Soto, and I've been reading Scaredy Cat by Mark Billingham for an age, not because it isn't any good, but because, like most good novels, it keeps nagging me to get on with my own work. My tbr pile, meanwhile, is in danger of reaching critical mass and imploding into a single Samual Beckett vignette - then I might just get around to reading it.

I'm two-thirds of the way through Neal Stephenson's System of the World. Next up is probably Allan Guthrie's Two-Way Split or Kevin Wignall's For the Dogs.

Reading? What's that? So out of practice...

Seriously, probably Domenic Stansberry's CHASING THE DRAGON, then Jim Born's WALKING MONEY.

I just picked up the first Rebus, Knots and Crosses, because Ian Rankin said such nice things about my boy Sunshine. (Okay, and I also loved the more recent Rebus novels, and I want to go back and see how the ol' boy was doing in the beginning.)

Also on deck: Little Girl Lost by Richard Aleas (a.k.a. Charles Ardai), and because it's approaching Halloween, the latest Simon Clark novel, In This Skin.

Well, my TBR pile is less hefty than it was a week ago, at least until my vast Amazon order of "books by mates I made at BCon" shows up, but still. Just read Mark Billingham's 'The Burning Girl', which is cool.

Next up I think is going to be Stav Sherez's 'The Devil's Playground' so I can pick holes in it when I see him at the Daggers.

Just started reading T Jeff's CALIFORNIA GIRL for a review, with 30 SECONDS OVER TOKYO on deck. Actually, I'm overdue. I've got BAG MAN, Jim Hime's SCARED MONEY, and Michael Siverling's THE STERLING INHERITANCE on deck.

Somewhere beyond that, I plan to dive into THE MALTESE FALCON, probably before Thanksgiving.

I've been handed 'Ian Hahn: The Olfactory Empath' by Johnnt Ostentatious and Hard, Hard City by Jim Fusili to review. Which one do ya think I'll be reading? Then there's Waldo Chicken Wakes the Dead by Alan Goldsmith and Jonathan Santlofer's Color Blind. If it weren't for the Fusili, I'd think someone was upset with me.

I read Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo years ago (around the time I read Guadalcanal Diary), and it's a great book.

I finished Dirt but my next book will actually be Death Will Have Your Eyes by James Sallis, which I forgot I had.

Just finished Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel. Jesus, what a long book. It's good and all, but really dry. I may have to reread a Harry Potter to get my head straight.

I alos just read the upcoming sequel to Road To Perdition, Road To Purgatory. Wow. Max Allan collins is amazing. This book takes Michael jr. from round 22 in WWII though the swinging last days of Capone. Loads of noir-ish mobster fun.

Still waiting for my limited edition of Lustice Leage and he Avengers Tam Up.....

TBR Pile? That's my whole dam bedroom.
