    Going to read soon.
    1. Twelve by Jasper Kent.
    2. The Whitefire Crossing by Courtney Schafer.
    3. The Etched City by K. J. Bishop.

    After that my list becomes unpredictable, but this is my intended list.

    4. The Monk by Matthew Lewis.
    5. Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding.
    6. The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks.
    7. The Winds of Khalakovo by Bradley P. Beaulieu

    Aside from that Iíve got a bunch of historical non-fiction and any sequels to the above books that I might like.

    I've read Simmons from both sides of the equation and in opinion he is much better as a sci-if writer. I'm currently reading Drood which is pretty good so far; but nowhere even close to as good as Hyperion which is by far the best thing Simmons has yet written.

    Just finished Sieze the Nigthbird by McCammon. Enjoyed it a great deal even though I went into it thinking it was Fantasy and found it was just a good historical fiction.

    Next up is "Changes" as I am finally up to Book # something or other in Butchers Dresden Files.

    Then a re-read of Abercrombie's Best Served Cold.

    The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan (Wheel of Time #3)
    The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie
    Dead Beat by Jim Butcher (Dresden Files #7)

    After that, I am unsure where I will turn. May read some more Sherlock Holmes or try my hand at the Earthsea series

    August was a really slow month, but I hope to pick up as the weather cools down from 40 degrees Celsius. I have lined up some really good books that I hope will make it into my top ten for 2012. Here they are, in order of interest:

    - Adrian Tchaikovsky - The Air War
    - K J Parker - Sharps
    - Carlos Ruiz Zafon - The Prince of Mists
    - Daniel Abraham - King's Blood
    - Chris Wooding - The Iron Jackal
    - Robert V S Reddick - Night of the Swarm (if it doesn't get delayed)
    - N K Jemisin - The Killing Moon; The Shadowed Sun
    - Gary Jennings - Journeyer
    - Robert McCammon - Gone South or The Five
    - Kij Johnson - Fudoki

    I have read all these finally except Prince of Nothing, which I am halfway through. I also added the Farseer Trilogy between Malazan and Prince of Nothing. Next up is Night Angel. After that I have no clue.

    I don't know, Summer of Night, Carrion Comfort, and Song of Kali are all extremely good horror novels but I am more of a horror fan than a sci-fi fan.

    Looks like I only read 3 of the 20 I listed. Phooey.

    Here's what I think is in the offing ...

    The Werewolf of Paris by Guy Endore
    The Imago Sequence & The Croning by Laird Barron
    House of Fear ed. by Jonathan Oliver

    After that, no idea. I'm not even sure I'll get to all of these before my attention wanders.

    Roughly:

    1. A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin
    2-3. A Dance with Dragons pts 1+2 - George R.R. Martin
    4. Fire Season - David Weber
    5. Abarat: Absolute Midnight - Clive Barker

    Not thought beyond that, if I'm honest.

    Hmmm.... good question. I tend to make lists and go in a completely different direction, though. Sometimes I really like an author or a series and will roll with it. But, tentatively:

    Time and Again by Jack Finney
    The Broken Universe by Paul Melko
    The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
    Death du Jour by Kathy Reichs
    The Hollow Earth by Rudy Rucker
