Bass Culture - Lloyd Bradley, nice book about the hostory of reggae + jamaica.
The Timewasters Letters - Robin Cooper, fsckin halarious book filled with pointless letter to people.
Droid Maker (George Lucas and the Digital Revolution) - Micheal Rubin, proper geeky book about the HUGE influence george lucas' company has had over the computer graphics + sound industries. If you like that sort of thing i highly recomend getting an american import!

and i finished the John Peel biography a little while ago too, very interesting!

Been really rubbish at reading recently, but this is what I've got two books on the go at the mo, Hegemony or Survival by Noam Chomsky and Stuart : A Life Backwards by Alexander Masters.

The latter the much easier bedtime reading, and gives you a real insight into homeless people and why they become homeless in the first place. I had to stop reading the former for a bit as it was making me angry Lol

moorcock indeed isn't a very 'good' writer, but still i rather like his style and what he's trying to achieve

akseli gallen-kallela's biography

sandman anthology by neil gaiman
best comic i've read in a long time Xyxthumbs

Currently reading"

"Footprints of Gautama the Buddha" - Marie Beuzeville Byles

"House of Leaves" - Mark Danielewski - Only started this last night and im looking forward to getting into it after hearing lots of great reviews.

Recently finished:

"Saddhartha" - Hermann Hesse - Classic tale, one of the best books i've ever read. Sparked my interest in Buddhism, hence me currently reading Footprints of Gautama...

"Perdido Street Station" - China Mieville - Awesome mixture of fantasy and sci-fi.

"Vurt" - Jeff Noon - Twisted cyberpunk sci-fi

sausmatoe Wrote:"House of Leaves" - Mark Danielewski - Only started this last night and im looking forward to getting into it after hearing lots of great reviews.

as i said in my first post this book is an essential read i have never read anything quite like it! there is a whole forum dedicated to it:

http://www.houseofleaves.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=3

however i'd advise you to read the book first b4 lookin at the forum but it does add a diffrent perspective.

Yes. its quite good, biographical family drama. her political writings are good to.

I like Bainks as much as the best guy, but still not sure if he ranks up there with Bradbury, K Dick, Ballard, Gibson et al...
