Now Reading:
I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon by Crystal Zevon
— went to the head of my Endless Book Queue because of this.

Just Read:
Dork Whore: My Travels Through Asia as a Twenty-Year-Old Pseudo-Virgin. by Iris Bahr
— see separate post.

White Corridor by Christopher Fowler
— separate post coming at some point.

About Time (short stories) by Jack Finney
(a re-read or 2nd re-read…)
— Finney is always a delight. Of the twelve stories, the final two are ringers and not about time travel at all. One of the time travel stories has a man who goes into the past using a car. Hmmmm, I’m looking at you, Back to the Future.

Ocean by Warren Ellis, Chris Sprouse and Karl Story.
— I surprised you with this, eh? It hadn’t been listed in Reading. Got it from the NYPL unexpectedly. It’s a neat little tale. The art is nearly like motion picture storyboards. It’s also been optioned for a movie. Someone page Ridley Scott or David Lynch. There’s one problem I had with this book: its presentation. It read like one book. It turns out it was a series and this is a compilation. I didn’t find this out until I saw a cover gallery in the back. That really pissed me off. I think the covers should have been chapter breaks. And what’s this — no page numbers?! How can I quote anything without citing a page number?!
