How about a little culture around here...more or less...
The Bonehunters - Steven Erikson
The Phoenix Guards - Steven Brust
Deeper- Jeff Long
(The sequel to one of my all-time faves, "The Descent"
The Greener Shore by Morgan Llywelyn and Druids: Celtic Priests of Nature by Jean Markale.
Ghost Walk by Heather Graham ... not sure if I like it enough to finish :-\
Fragile Things - Neil Gaiman
The Know it All- A.J. Jacobs

LOVE Brust. Amazing author!

...a distant mirror...by barbara tuchman and
...the bellmaker...(a redwall novel)...by brian jacques
Yahoo! That book is a riot. The follow up, Five Hundred Years After is a lot more serious. But then the trilogy after that (starting with Sethra Lavode) is a real hoot. Keep going!
I'm reading Perdido Street Station by China Mieville at home, and working through Roger Zelazny's Amber series while exercising at the YMCA.
I think I'm going to dive into that series soon. I'll try to read one or two of them a year, and hopefully get to the 9th or 10th book by the time they're out. Unless he pulls a George Martin on us and either extends the series or takes longer and longer between volumes.
Judging from your username and avatar, I take it you're an F. Paul Wilson fan. I've read all the Repairman Jack books up through Crisscross. I haven't seen any followups in paperback yet, and have not tried to find them on line.
Less Than Zero - Bret Easton Ellis
I loved "The Descent" as well, an absolute gripping thriller. Any thoughts on "Deeper" yet, or too early to tell?
I'm a big fan as well (my Dad is a good friend of his). As far as the Repairman Jack novels after "Crisscross" go, "Infernal" is definitely available on paperback and "Harbingers" will be released on paperback on Tuesday, August 28th.
Lisey's Story - Stephen King
Dragons of a Lost Star by Weis and Hickman.
Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson
Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire (just about done...)
The World is Flat - Thomas Friedman
Voyager - Diana Gabaldon (no these aren't romance novels! its good stuff!)
This is more books than I usually am reading together. I usually prefer to just read one, but sometimes various pressures cause me to start other books too.
Jacqueline Carey - Kushiel's Justice
Jon Stewart - Naked Pictures of Famous People
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (Yeah, shaddup, I didn't get my copy in the mail until late last week. )
That one's next in the queue and should arrive right about when I finish Deathly Hallows. Carey's Kushiel books are terrific, and she's pretty cool in person, too.
guards, guards- Terry Pratchett
