    Read all the SK DarkTower books lounging about.
    Even had 2 or 3 sitting next to the LOO.Hahahah
    14 weeks I will not get back,I did get the complete series and finish collecting when I had found someone dropped
    what they had and took them to a nearby used book store.
    All my library had was Wastelands and when I first finished the series they refused me donating them (mostly hardcovers)
    wtf up wit dat?

    I read it 3 times over.
    The Stand I have read no less than 15 times.

    Old age has mellowed ye fine chap.In the past a poster may have gotten an excoriation or a public flogging.

    You don't need to "sigh" all your posts... We can see who has written them

    I cannot find normal text now so me quoting Neil makes everything italic.

    I am speaking of 3 versions first one I got with my newsbboy paper delivery money when people paid me for my service
    from that now missing small mom and pop drugstore (not walgreens lewis drugs or duane reed mega stores)
    its said on the back cover SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE GAR producing.

    Sort of excited when the bigger longer one came out in the 90's but only new commentary was about aids
    and flu made who AC DC bollox THE KIDD and trashy.

    When NYC was dying and MR. can you dig your man was getting ready to split the scene TRULY EPIC
    Sort of empathy Stu Redman when he stopped letting them test him he grabbed BUB (tv series Howard Sherman)

    WTF DID YOU PEOPLE DO!
    pps,just for Neil

    please let me know how that one is. i thought 11/22/63 was pretty damn good, seems king has gotten some of his groove back.

    the gf's father has "doctor sleep" and offered to let me borrow it when he finishes it, so it's sorta on my radar.

    as for myself, i'm currently reading (if you want to call it that, as they're comics) EC archives, tales from the crypt, vol 4, a christmas present from the gf.

    Ive just finished 2 Simon Clark books, The Fall & Hotel Midnight, good books, i recommend reading them. Ive just started Connie Willis - Blackout, not a horror as i usually read , its a time travel book. Oh and ive not long finished the full proper version of The Stand again, still one of my favourite books ever (if not the best).

    Currently reading Accardo - The Genuine Godfather by William Roemer and Warfare in the Classical World by John Warry.

    After that I'll probably read either Alexander the Great and the Logistics of the Macedonian Army (the title says it all) or The Cold and the Dark: The World after a Nuclear War (so does this). I mostly read non-fiction stuff, and whenever I read fiction it's usually of the pulp kind (in it's derogatory sense). I've got a book called The Devils Plague about how Oliver Cromwell used a demon army to win him the English Civil War and having recently listened to Mike Duncan's podcast on the subject matter I think I might want to give it a read.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    have you ever read "The Western Way of War" by Victor Hansen? great book about how greek and roman military thinking influence western culture.
