I finished the second Edgar Wallace book in the 3-in-1 volume I have been slogging through. Started on the first chapter of the last one over lunch and decided I can't deal with another of his silly things for now. Tongue I need to dig through my boxes and find my other German books, try the Michael Ende book I have in there somewhere.... "Das Gefšngnis der Freiheit", several short stories/novellas linked in theme, I think.

  • Think for yourself, question authority.
Just finished "Bringing down the house" by Ben Mezrich about some card counters taking on Vegas.

Awesome book.

Recently finished: Caleb Carr "The Alienist" - cool book but the ending is just anti-climax.

Now: Andrzej Sapkowski "Boży Wojownicy" (God's Warriors) - this is the author of THE WITCHER on which the game is based.

I plan to read: LaVey's bible.

Oh, and I'm trying to get some Lovecraft's work but there are only few of them in our library  :( I could just download them from Project Gutenberg but printing 500 pages seems to be a stupid idea.

You still suck anyway... I'm pretty sure reading Anton La Vey's bible would be some interesting and enlightening experience...

Whoa, I need to come here more often or else I miss too much.  The Satanic Bible is pretty good actually, one of my favorites.  LaVey was witty and had a great sense of humor.  Buy into the eccentric, black magic image or don't but he was a good, intelligent writer with an interesting philosophy. 

I'm am a HUGE Lovecraft fanatic if you couldn't tell from the obvious.  Have around fifty collections, works, anthologies, etc.  The archives are a good place to start if you want to look into him.  http://www.hplovecraft.com/

This site,  http://www.dagonbytes.com/thelibrary/lovecraft/  ,  has his short stories all online.  You should try to find his poetry as well but that is a little more difficult.

all Lavey ever preached was basically do what ever the hell you want all the time and don't give a shit about doing it....why do you need to be a part of a religion to do that?
"playful deception is the lowest form of Tom-foolery"
"i don't trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn't die"

It was actually more along the lines of reaching your full potential and deciding your own fate.  It isn't really as much of a religion as it is a philosophy.
