    Pyramids by Terry Pratchett.

    In the last year I've also read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, which I would probably never have read if I'd realised its subject matter before picking it up and getting hooked from the first paragraph; Hogfather which a friend leant to me and was my first Terry Pratchett novel and kept making me laugh in public places - always sure to get you your own seat on a train; Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay which I thought started of really well and then fizzled a bit; Company of Liars which was interesting but never quite hit the spot for me; Smoke and Mirrors and Stardust by Neil Gaiman, enjoyed both, but he seems to have this pervading sadness in his stories that has put me off reading more. Then I bought The Colour of Magic and it's been Terry Pratchett since September.

    Am currently about 2/3 the way through Midworld by Alan Dean Foster

    Next up (& it litterally just dropped through my letter-box 15 mins ago) will be Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake

    W. Axl Rose by Mick Wall. It's a gripping read so far, it shows how power and fame corrupt as well as feeding your ego so you don't notice.

    Mind Over Ship, second novel from David Marusek. So far it's every bit as rammed full of brain-food as the first (Counting Heads), which comes highly recommended... though I'm not sure that it ever got a UK release, so you might have to import.

    I've bounced off that book about half a dozen times. I might try just one last time...
