6. Neverwhere, Neil Gaimon (Story about London Below. Vivid, weird, captivating. It kind of reminded me of Nightmare Before Christmas, or at least that's what all the characters looked like in my head. I liked it.)

5. My Own Kind of Freedom, Steven Brust (free e-book. He's a published author, a friend of mine, and I like Firefly, so now I have read my first fanfic novel. It was entertaining.)

4. Dragonfly in Amber, Diana Gabaldon (I'm getting a bit tired of this series, a little too much romance without enough realism, but the girl who loaned it to me will be sad if I refuse the next one. Amusing line though, from a woman who has traveled back in time: "Lying on the floor...I found myself thinking that I had always heretofore assumed that the tendency of eighteenth-century ladies to swoon was due to tight stays; now I rather thought it might be due to the idiocy of eighteenth-century men.")

3.5 The Last of the Mohicans, James Fenimore Cooper (I made it through almost half on my Treo before I gave up. Boring boring boring!)

Neverwhere is a good book. It was made into a mini-series on TV a few years ago and it was good.

Steven Brust is a great writer. I've loved all of his books.

I like Gaiman's stuff, I meet him the year after I moved to Austin, spent a bunch of time with alone with him at ArmadilloCon which was cool because most of the time he was mobbed by fans.

I thought that book was fantabolous and I think that it was my first Neil Gaiman book.

If you get a chance you should see the Movie version of Neverwhere which aired on BBC so many years ago. It's a two disk DVD and well worth the purchase. It should be available at any of the Cons you go to, if you ask for it.

Steven Brust is your friend? Is he still dating a girl named Star? I was a big fan of his when he originally started out with his series and then he lost me somewhere along the line. I know that he experienced a lot of difficult times a couple of years back, but I wish him well.
