Edge of Destruction by a guy who's name I forgot and the book is upstairs now, so I'll have to owe that bit of info. It's one of those Doctor Who books on Target featuring the Doctor in his first incarnation (that we know of) with granddaughter Susan, and companions Barbara and Ian (sp?).

Just began Iceberg by David Banks. He has acted in several parts as well as writing. He even was the lead Cyberman back in the 80's. 8)

I know that story! Saw the episode. I don't think I have the book but I bet it makes more sense than the episode did. It didn't start to come together until almost the end.

Just finished the latest round of Stargate Novels that arrived and as always its really good to delve back into my favourite world of SG1 And SGA..
But now i get to start on the next novel of the only crime series i prefer by Lee Childs. It's not really into forensics and stuff like that more of a good old fashion detective novel. all deductions and guess.

I currently ready several books. I've got Larry Niven's Ringworld in my locker at work and next to my bed I've got Piers Anthony's Yon Ill Wind and Xone of Contention (Started reading it and realized I'd skipped a book in the series so it's half read while I read the books before it) and also Stephen King's On Writing which CK loaned me to help me get back into writing.

Well, Raven, the book kept you guessing what was up until the end too. Interesting story, I heard that the BBC got in a lot of trouble about the scissors back in the day because of the kids watching. I had finished it outside one evening when the power was out for a couple hours with a blown transformer. Yes, really.
Lee Childs style sounds interesting, Aaron. I to prefer the detecting side of investigation as compared to the other. Except for Sherlock Holmes of course. I love the combination of strong detecting and very early forensics in those stories. Do you like Sherlock, Aaron?

I haven't actually read any of the novels i'm afraid. The too much to do and too little time story again...

Yes, highly. :D I read them all around second and third grade, about that time I was reading a lot of Poe too. I had a hunger for reading and my level was very high for my age.

Didn't have that sort of reading in school, was lucky that my folks believed that if you can understand it, you can read it. So I actually read them on my own, for fun. It just happened to be during that time period.
The only book they made us read in school that I enjoyed was Lord of the Flies. That was quite good. Usually it was boring stuff like the Scarlet Letter and the Good Earth. Very yawn. The only time we had Poe was a reading of the Raven in class in 9th grade where we each took turns reading a few lines outloud. That was painful to listen too. I'm such a snob.

Yes, I'm crazy.
