OMG, "SpL201: A Conditionally Immortalized Schwann Cell Precursor Line that Generates Myelin" was SO the hotest book I ever read!
'Briefly Noted' in the New Yorker wrote of it "Paul Aster meets Dylan Thomas in Boner City"

Huh. The review I read in Harper's described it as Nabokov-esque, which I think is dead on. I do like the "authorship by committee" idea.

Nothing beats the classic noir of
"Sequential actions of BMP receptors control neural precursor cell production and Batman"
Denny Oneil, Bernie Wrightson, and a buncha Docs from John's Hopkins. It's the shit.

I know that ultimately he seems to be writing to children, but Orson Scott Card's "Ender" books are captivating as all hell. I just read "Xenocide" and found it to be one of the most magnificinet books I've read in years.

I've reverted back to my childhood and have been reading a lot of Stephen King. "The Talisman", "Night Shift", "The Dark Half", et al.
Um, anything by Andrew Vachss, Eugene Izzi, Michael Crichton.
I also just finished a book by Shane Stevens, "By Reason Of Insanity". That was pretty good.

ultimate spiderman >:
i also reread 'the red badge of courage.' i read two versions of it. the longer one is better.
i'm running out of books that hold my interest. i started to read 'beloved' but it was too obtuse and depressing for me at the time.

I've had to read Beloved. I didn't really like it that much, but I really love the way it's written. And it is, inherently, extremely depressing, just because of the story.
The thing I remember most about that book is the cow fucking part. I don't know what that says about me. :(
