The postal dude delivered a PS edition of THE MACHINERIES OF JOY last week (1 sig. by the way; #173). In addition to this beautifully put together edition, I'm reading some nonfiction Asimov.

Gaiman's signature is the hard one to get. Ray's just requires an 18 mile drive. Big Grin

I recently started to reread my favourite Steve King work, It, which I hadn't read in nearly twenty years. One of the great horror novels of all time. The whole novel is about the magic surrounding childhood that too easily passes away as we turn into adults. With regards to that magic, it's up there with Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Robert McCammon's wonderful novel Boy's Life.

Let us never lose that magic!

Fedex recently delivered the full collection of J. Krishnamurti's works, which I'm happy to say is my best Halloween present I've gotten since the days of trick'r'treating!

I just picked up Rashomon and other stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa. I've actually only read the introduction so far haha
The author has written some really incredible stories, so I wanted to see if those were just a fluke. The Spider's Web and Hell Screen by him truly paint a picture.

Hmm...The Sequel to "A Cloud of Sparrows" is not as "Action-orientated" than the first book. Saddening.
