    +1 on that.

    Assuming it'll be in Barnes & Noble's?

    It should be on Amazon pretty soon. My first book is being translated into Hindi, Arabic, Korean and Chinese. Not sure why, but I know it does well in Muslim countries.

    Thanks. I was starting to wonder if it was ever going to get published. It is about all the mentally ill clients I had over the years. Had to get permission from the ones that are still alive.

    I used to absolutely adore Barker. I have both the Abarat books but haven't got round to them. Cabal is still my favourite though. The film 'Nightbreed' was fun.

    There's three abarat books now, but my favorite is definitely Imajica, took a while to read but it is so good.

    Finishing Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett tonight. Marvelous, I've read reviews that seem to imply his work is suffering, but I can't see it. This book is as funny and touching as any of the others in the series.

    Gonna read something by C. Robert Cargill next: Dreams and Shadows

    I've been reading Pratchett since 'Mort' but haven't enjoyed any of his novels in several years. 'World of Poo' was OK though.

    Interesting. Which was the last one you really enjoyed? To me, Going Postal, Making Money and the Truth rank among my favorites.

    Probably Going Postal......I liked that one. Maybe I've just been reading too much Warhammer 40k and lost my sense of humour!?

    Going Postal and Nightwatch are my favourites.
    hmmmm, I've been wondering what to read now I've finished "The Bees" (really odd book, but quite liked it in the end). Might revisit come Pratchett!

    middlesex by jeffrey eugenides, a little odd sounding at first, but a great read. tells a lot about the rise and fall of detroit.

    I have no clue about Warhammer 40k, pretty dark? I'm a pretty dismal guy most of the time, I like melancholy music; sad, thought-provoking movies and some disturbing fantasy/science fiction...then when I can't stand myself anymore I pick up a Pratchett, Hiassen or a Thorne Smith or maybe Christopher Moore and try to lighten up.

    Nightwatch is Fantastic! Good one.

    40k is pretty grim. Imagine World War 1 in space.....with demons.
