Books I'm currently reading

On hold

  • Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon - Borrowed this from Munro to read for a bookgroup. I found the first chapter overly flowery but by the second chapter I was hooked, and now I'm amazed how ahead of its time it was (for 1937). Still reading, waiting to find out about the Dyson/Stapledon sphere (started reading July 2017)
  • Sum: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman - Munro gave me this, I've read a handful of the shorts already, some pretty interesting ones so far. (started reading March 2017)
  • Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach - Mentioned on Slashdot, sounds interesting. It'd been om my to-read list since Sep 2009. It's now my non-fiction bedside book (started reading in Dec 2016)
  • Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis - Not a novel, but a collection of 60 comics put together. I'm impressed with it so far, I like Spider (started reading in March 2016)
