I'm almost done with SUPERGODS by Grant Morrison.

It's not really a comic book history title but more of an analysis of comic books. So far, it's pretty good and I like what he has to say.

Steaming Up! The autobiography of Samuel Vauclain.

Long out of print, I've been wanting it for years. Finally got a copy for my birthday.

I'm currently reading THE GUNS OF THE SOUTH by Harry Turtledove. Yes, this is alternate earth history which features a faction of South Africans from the far future year of 2014 (the book was written in 1992) time traveling to 1864 and giving the Confederacy limitless quantities of AK-47s and ammunition.

So far it's a fun read, if a silly premise. The South winning the war isn't a new story idea but Turtledove is doing okay with it.

Trying to read through the first Wheel of Time book on Jons kindle (it's his favorite series ever) but I haven't been in much of a reading mood lately! :(

Not so much READING it as looking at the photographs, but I'm currently enjoying the National Audubon Society's North American Birdfeeder Handbook.

Had a Yellow Warbler in my tree the other day! Very pretty bird. Too bad he wasn't singing.

The Martian - the book the movie was based on.

I haven't seen the movie, but the book is a real page-turner - one of the best mixtures of suspense and adventure I have read in years!

And it's good, solid, science-rich science fiction too!

A magazine, if that counts:


Film Noir
75 Years of the Greatest Crime Films


A Life magazine (on magazine stands until November 18, 2016).


Featured a piece on The Third Man, so I bought it.

Includes items parallel/tangential to the genre. Not really in-depth, but a decent primer on the topic. Introduced me to many films I'll need to see ("Laura", in particular, looks interesting).

I found myself with a Ray Bradbury craving, so I pulled out my copy of THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES and I'm reading that again for the first time since at least high school.

I loved the book as a kid and it's still marvelous now.
