Thanks. I didn’t understand until the past 24 hours that the subsequent books weren’t direct sequels but more like parallel books. That format appeals to me. I’m gonna read Authority soon-ish-ish.
I still have those covers! <high five!>
“Silence” great book, i think that it contains Cage’s soul
Has anyone read The Absolute at Large?
I just started this after it was on my list for quite some time, i was hoping for some sort of omnibus to come out so i wouldn’t have to buy 12 volumes individually… but i don’t think that’s gonna happen anytime soon… cause it’s not even finished releasing yet!
It’s surreal, yet relatable, thoroughly enjoying it so far.
I am rereading Susan Cooper’s The Dark Is Rising, one of the most wonderful Weird British Children’s Novels, because it’s set between 20 December and 6 January.
Robert MacFarlane on it is good:
Kind of a guilty pleasure but a quick, easy and mostly enjoyable read
I just finished the intro to Pink Noises by Tara Rodgers and it is an interesting read so far. I’m definitely excited for the interviews!
(I’ve been practicing baking a lot if that wasn’t apparent)
'A beautiful composition of broken’

Reading in front of fire. Cat, cha, snow, sun. My idea of Boxing Day.
Lovecraft should be In the other thread though Wagner, Spacey, and all that?
I only say that cause I’ve got The Night Ocean by lafarge for Christmas, I will report back on this thread.
Oh, and as a positive contribution to this thread, and I’m sure it’s covered already, but: Richard Brautigan is the real inspirational shit here. The combination of the meaning of the text, the rhythm of the words, etc is a lesson for us all.
The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower Book 1) - Stephen King. King’s Lord of the Rings. Can’t wait to read the next one!
Rogue Warrior - Richard Marcinko. An autobiography of the bad-ass that started SEAL team 6.

Modern Greek Philosophy
just tore through White Tears by Hari Kunzru. started off as a fairly normal story of record collector obsession (specifically blues), turned into a kind of thriller of American racism and cultural appropriation. still working it all out but I highly recommend it - I think it would appeal to most folks here.
another amazing book that came out in 2017.
Its fun, and quite enjoying it, but if I could somehow go back in time and give it my 10 year old self I’d have absolutely LOVED it!
3 of 5 chapters through. Possibly the best text on programming I’ve read. I wonder why I didn’t read it until now.
Scheme or Old School?
Chris Kresser - Functional Medicine.
A scary, but helpful insight into chronic disease/disorder treatment.
