George RR Martin ftw.
I hear they're making an HBO series of 'a Song of Ice and Fire'

On topic
I'm reading 'Inferno' the sequel to 'Romanitas'
although I like it, I think it might benefit from the pride & prejudice and zombies approach: Add zombies.

I have recently picked up Shadow over innsmouth because....why the fuck not. I love how Lovecraft writes, he spends a sick amount of time describing how undescribable something.

As a side note, maybe I missed this but, where is the spellcheck...I needs it

"The D Case: Or the Truth About the Mystery of Edwin Drood." Which was Dickens' unfinished novel when he died. It involves all of the great fictional detectives congregating to decide how it should end. Pretty entertaining so far

Finished Halo Evolutions. Really enjoyed it. A couple of the stories were a bit boring, but for the most part it was very enjoyable.
I now need a book to read. I really want to get Metro 2033, but it's not out here yet.

If you are using Firefox there is an addon for it.

I'm currently reading the resident evil novels, they're pretty good.

Fucking Hamlet. Oh Lawd.
The only Shakespeare I've read that I've liked was Romeo and Juliet. Hamlet is just weird and sort of predictable. Scattered, too.

yeah, and he doesnt describe anything scary, lovercraft just tells you that something is scary.
how can one be afraid of that?

I calculated the odds of this succeeding against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupidů and I went ahead anyway.

I disagree, he builds tension by NOT overtly describing, he lets your own imagination do the work of scaring you, he's better at it in some stories than others of course but I thoroughly enjoy reading Lovecraft.

well, so this might be also the translation problem, cause ive read it only in polish.
and, his way just works for some people, for other it does not.
i liked his stories though, they were nicely wicked. didnt scare me though.
