Right now I'm reading Lawrence Wright's excellent book "Going Clear. Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief ". Can recommend warmly.

The Silver Series and Werewolf Academy by Cheree Alsop....They are pop trash style novels, but I love anything werewolf so I put up with it.

Not to spoil it for anyone - but the Earth just got destroyed.

Don't worry. The mice have ordered a new one...

It's a pretty sad story but fucking excellent.
This is my second time reading it.

B.S. is a Mormon author of some pretty damn good fantasy novels. He is currently my favorite fiction fantasy author. I have read hundreds of fantasy novels and absolutely love them. Fantasy is my favorite fiction genre. I often wonder if other atheist enjoy fantasy as much as I do. Lately, I have been switching between nonfiction (mostly the big names in atheist authors) and my fantasy novels. Just bought The Origin of Species on ebook which I hadn't read in more than a decade. One fantasy series I really enjoyed was Michael Sullivan's Riyria Revelations. Talk about a world where the church is the ultumate authority and is totally full of shit!!! Great series! Anybody else love fantasy? Hate me for loving it?

I have enjoyed the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and Orson Scott Card (many of whose books could be labeled fantasy). But I've never gone much farther into that genre. Most of my non-fiction reading is more mainstream literary stuff (Joyce, Faulkner, Pynchon -- that sort of thing).

I'm currently reading Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, which is fantasy of a sort.

I cannot wait to see the documentary they've done on this. Heard it really shocked at Sundance. Maybe I'll read the book first. Thanks for the reco!

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Finally reading Dune by Frank Herbert. I'm a little more than half of the way through and it's quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite sci-fi reads!
