    WTH?

    Dredd, thanks again, seems lately I turn from hag into damsel in distress with you playing the part of the handsome knight (or this case active mods, but fairytales are no good with that).

    A Canticle For Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr.

    Subtle; engrossing; wonderful irony; a rich mixture of themes. Half-way through, a fine read

    Re: Hey Bookworm, What Are You READING?

    I'm not a horror fan but one of the old style good writers died today.

    Let's all pray he RIP because I don't want to Imagine the alternative.

    He is perhaps best known as the author of The Shrinking Man, Hell House, What Dreams May Come, Bid Time Return (filmed as Somewhere in Time), A Stir of Echoes, and I Am Legend, all of which have been adapted as major motion pictures, the last at least three times. Matheson also wrote numerous television episodes of The Twilight Zone for Rod Serling, including "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and "Steel". He later adapted his 1971 short story "Duel" as a screenplay which was promptly directed by a young Steven Spielberg, for the TV movie of the same name.

    A Canticle For Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr. was Great but the sequel years and years later was crap

    Looks like I'll be reading books on a Kindle, and quite soon. I wonder what my first e-book will be

    I will still get the final two Iain Banks novels in hardback though. Call me a luddite, I'd like that.

    They are fun alright. They're not the best fantasy has to offer, and David Eddings isn't good at writing women who are not annoying (Polgara is about the only one acceptable, the rest are just obnoxious), but every now and again, usually during summer on long journeys, I reread 'm and it's always fun.
    You may have to work your way through the first book. You won't for the remaining parts - at some point you will speed through 'm.

    E-books are Great if you stick to the Common Domain stuff that's free. If you buy be aware that hacked account, lost account , or really any decision by the on-line publisher can lose your copy, Or be stuck with it only on that one device till the device fails.
