John Saul is one of my favorite authors!

I am currently reading "The Glass Flame," by Phyllis A. Whitney.

judas strain by james rollins. i get my nerd on with a lifelong intrest in science. the books by rollins combines hard science with wild action adventure. at the end of each he lists what parts of the story were facts with refrences if you want to check them out. it is often suprising what turns out to be fact. if interested start with the novel map of bones, followed by black order then judas strain. the books he wrote before this were a little far feched for me but fall along the same lines.

In all seriousness, this is what I have been perusing, and it's driving my wife nuts.

When you spend a bazillion dollars on bike parts, Moco gives you your own factory parts book to buy more parts. This is the latest edition.

It's a page turner, I cannot wait to see how it ends!

Most likely, a divorce...

Edit: BTW, for those who are faint of heart, my "bookmark" was inserted as a gag. I collect old curios, and this is a Sicilian knife, circa 1955, dull as a butterknife with the mechanism inoperable for more than 40 years. Belive it it or not, it's the blonde bone handles that make it valuable. They don't build 'em like this anymore.

I'm reading it now and it's a very strange story. "THE STAND " is still his best work.

The Stand is a really good one. Very intense! Have you read 'Salem's Lot? That was one of the first Stephen King books I ever read. It is what hooked me on his books.

I've read that one yeah, awesome stuff! I heard that The Stand is his best rated book and the plot sounds perfect for me, I ordered a bunch of his books off Amazon at the start of summer to read and The Stand was in there If you haven't read The Mist, that's a great one too - it's a short that also got turned into a pretty good movie, except they changed the end!
