    I keep meaning to continue reading the series, but I always start something else instead of Messiah. I just ordered Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn omnibus. I've been on a bit of a Warhammer groove lately.

    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.

    Labyrinth of Solitude. It's a good book, all in all. And I've been wanting to read that for a while.

    Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein.

    Trying to get into more non-fiction, but needed some good SF in between.

    ...I had forgotten that I created this thread.

    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 was thinking about this (bit late, sorry) and I think that the big problem would be that so many of the major characters are AIs or suitcase shaped drones..

    Shame though, I think done well they'd be ace.

    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.
