Been reading too much non fiction recently so I read a couple Chuck Klosterman books (IV, sex drugs & cocoa puffs) and dan brown's inferno. All were entertaining.

Sweet deal! Love to get those. I look for them on the tables at tourney banquets, too. If you ever want to step up and become truly loony the following link has all these titles you like (as they come out) signed, and for (usually) cover prices. Shipping is usually 5-7lbs, which is nothing.

I read it. It's really long. Wasn't a fan, but post-apocalyptic fantasies are not really my thing. It's very popular though and part of planned triology (I think two have been written thus far).

So THAT'S where it's going......hmmm.
