Books read on the cruise

The Prisoner by Thomas Disch
A sequel to the great TV series, confusing at first (like the show).

Paint Your Dragon by Tom Holt
Love this guy, Douglas Adams meets Terry Pratchett. The story is about the modern day reappearance of St. George and the Dragon. Very funny stuff.

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
Picked this up in London – signed! Love the movie, but never got around to reading it. Great, feels like a cousin of the movie.

Perdido Street Station by China Mievielle
I had bought this at a signing several years back after a glowing Neil Gaiman quote. A great book, long one (700+ pages), but it grabs you with an intriguing viewpoint on aliens. Shouldn’t have waited so long to read it.

Bad Chili by Joe R. Lansdale
Because every vacation needs some horror/western.

Everything’s Eventual by Stephen King
Funny story, reproduced in here are the three stories originally released only in audio as “Smoke and Mirrors”. When I got my laser eye surgery done to correct my vision, I thought it would be a good idea to have an audio book to listen to as I wouldn’t be able to read or watch TV that night. Word to the wise – not being able to see is not the way to experience those particular stories – I about jumped out of my skin every time the house creaked.
