    What The Hell Did I Just Read - David Wong.
    Third in the John Does At The End series. Really funny, more horror in this one than the others, another great story. Strong recommend for this series, so easy to read, great stories, but still thought-provoking, and laugh out loud.

    I finished the first Darth Bane Book and already bought the next two. It's everything I wish the films were. Hopefully we get one someday that portrays the world like the books and games do. I do have high hopes for the Mandelorian TV show though.

    At the moment I am reading David Ellefsons "More Life With Deth" and Dan Simmons "Terror". I like both books :)

    Nice!
    If you want more 40k there's the Ravenor triology, which is also really good!
    Right now im reading The Magos which I found to my suprise in an english book shop here. It's all the Eisenhorn short stories + some new unpublished ones as well as part 4 of the Eisenhorn triology... quadology?

    Recent listens:

    Rendezvous with Rama - Really good, Im not that familiar with Arthur C. Clarke, but this really makes me want to check out more. (No I haven't seen 2001 :D)
    Siege of Terra: The lost and the damned - I cannot get enough of wh40k. The story is really coming to a climax in these books closing in on the end.
    Clockwork Century: Not really my cup of tea but it was good for falling asleep to.

    I just started The Magos and will continue the rest of the Eisenhorn books. If I'm still in a 40K mood I'll take a look at the Ravenor Trilogy.

    Today I started reading The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens. It's a novel about a college student who as part of one of his courses is supposed to interview and write about an older person. The person he chooses to interview is an old Vietnam vet who also is a convicted child rapist and murderer. It's a real page turner IMO.
