    Yeah, they are good. It's strange that they have not been a source of illustration inspiration more often - or that they have not been made into films.

    Just finished Smoke & Mirrors by Neil Gaiman. A good book by a great author.

    Currently doing LOTS of research into 18th/19th century Persia for my current project, so no room for novels at the moment!

    "World War Z- An Oral History of the Zombie War" by Max Brooks.

    Good silly stuff.

    Very readable and kind of an insight into the mind of a guy who has clearly spent far too much time thinking about all this.."Hmm, broadsword, AK or battleaxe..?"

    Haven't been reading fictional books in a while, but here's some good business/organizational books -

    4 hour work week - timothy ferris - even if it's impossible to get a 4 hour workweek, it's a great book on maximizing your time, living life now, and that sort of stuff.

    http://fourhourworkweek.com/

    His blog
    http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/

    the power of less - Leo babauta
    Basic premise - do less, get more done.

    http://thepowerofless.com/

    His Blog
    http://zenhabits.net/

    I like both of them because the books, their blogs, and their philosophies kind of meld together, making it a good combo for getting things done, doing the things you want to do, and all that semi-suspicious get rich-quick scheme mumbo jumbo (although I'm just in it for the doing what I want to do aspect)

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
    --- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear
