Picked up Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Shadow's Edge, the sequel to Way of the Shadow from Brent Weeks that I finished last week or so. Looking forward to digging into them after I finish the Quantum Thief, which is going pretty good.

I recommend American Gods as well. One of Gaiman's better pieces.

The follow up it is Anansi Boys. It's not a sequel, but a story along similar lines as American Gods. Anansi Boys seemed a bit more humorous.

I love Gaimans style. Another author you might like is A. Lee Martinez. His work is more on the lighter side of sci-fi humor. Quirky and very good. I thoroughly enjoyed Monster and Divine Misfortune

"The Stars My Destination", by Alfred Bester. also known as "Tiger! Tiger!" in non-US markets.

speaking of Neil Gaiman - he wrote the intro for the version I am reading. Bester was way ahead of the sci-fi curve on some things . . . and his main character in this book - Gully Foyle - is simply amazing. This book could only come to film as anime - and it was written in the '50's

The Tender Bar by JR Moehringer.

About a kid who grows up without a father and his family sends him to the bar where his uncle works to have male role models. Interesting, humourous, and sad.

I am just about done reading, The Finish: The Killing of Osama Bin Laden by Mark Bowden. It is pretty good, just like all of Bowden's books.

The Finish is about how the CIA tracked & found Bin Laden, the Navy SEAL team 6 preparing & executing the raid and a lot about the politics surrounding President Obama's decision to raid Bin Laden's home-instead of just taking him out with a drone/missile stike.

Bowden has also wrote, Blackhawk Down, Killing Pablo, Guests of the Ayatollah & many other good true life/crime/military stories.

^I just got that one, haven't had time to crack it open yet.

Been on a spree lately, finished Go Like Hell on Monday, great book about Ferrari and Ford's battles in racing during the 60's. Now I'm onto Memorial Day by Vince Flynn, part of the Mitch Rapp series. Not too bad, good for my Tom Clancy fix haha.
