Ok, since finishing the Halfblood Chronicles...
"Pure Drivel" - Steve Martin (yes, the actor/comedian). A collections of essays and such published by the "New Yorker." Not too bad. The man may be an idiot, but at least he's an amusing idiot.
"Comitment Hour" - James Allen Gardner. Very good. In a sci-fi world of same ol' same ol Gardner is a breath of fresh air.
