Im reading 2 hardcovers atm. Andrew Loomis - 3 dimensional drawing (revised successful drawing) and figure drawing for all its worth.
I tried reading the free pdfs, but I couldnt concentrate with all the scrolling up and down. So i went to amazon.com and was able to grab both Loomis books used. One of them is in mint condition the other is decent.
There is something truely awesome about holding a Loomis book in your hand. They were expensive but im glad to have them.
also bought a ton of Bridgeman books I havent even looked at yet.

If you enjoy "Starship Troopers" you might like Joe Haldemans "Forever War", kinda similar book, speculative military sci fi but written from the 'Nam protester "War = fail" hippy point of view.
If you like both then John Scalzis "Old Mans War" is ace. It's Heinlein or Haldeman with a sense of humour.

I'm reading a fantasy short story collection called The Solaris Book of New Fantasy or something like that. The first story was about a Brittish spy in the 16th century who was locked in a building together with a lot of party guests and who salted around all exits to keep monsters from hell at bay. Felt like I was watching another episode of supernatural...

I was reading Warrior of Rome: Part One, Fire in the East, by Harry Sidebottom. I like roman history, but I am beginning to get bored of the book.
I am thinking about picking up my unfinished Ian Irvine's - Tetrarch: The Well of Echoes.
