Just read "At the Mountains of Madness" twice for an art project I was working on. At my girlfriend's insistence I also read the first two volumes of the Sandman comic book - it was decent though I'm not the biggest Neil Gaiman fan. I'm also slowly working through a lengthy biography of David Lynch.

Last book was my all time fave prose "The Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov. Once a year is mandatory for me. An insanely wild roller coaster ride from Pontius Pilatus to Moscow in the 1930ies where all hell breaks loose with the arrivial of THE trio infernale.


A ridiculous and fantastic book.

Never read it, but War and Peace is superb, obviously. One of the greatest novelists of all time. Maybee better than Dostoevsky even.

can someone recommend me good reading similiar to thoughts of nietzsche's will to power and redbeard's might is right... and i mean interpreted just as they are read if you catch my point.


No one is quite like Nietzsche, but these are similiar thinkers:

Henry Miller (especially)
Herman Hesse (In particular Demian and Siddhartha)
Rabelais (Gargantua and Pantegruel)
Voltaire (Candide)

Yeah, quite poor in comparison to its predecessor, which is so damn great, I mean there's so much bullshit and Ravenscroft tries to get away with it, but you can't get more entertaining and captivating!

Currently reading:

Fatal Avenue: A Traveller's History Northern France and Flanders 1346-1945 by Richard Holmes .

Planning on doing a tour of the battlefields next year, so this is a bit of preparation.

The Battle of Kursk: Operation Citadel 1943 by Robin Cross

Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives by Alan Bullock
I've been slugging away at this for months, but the thing is like a brick. 1152 page hardback, so I cant carry it around to read at work.

Hellforged by Ben Counter. Nothing wrong with a bit of pulp sci-fi to read on the commute to work. and it dosent get any pulpier than warhammer:40,000 tie-in fiction haha.

I tried to read this book twice, and couldn't get through it. Using material obtained through seances as historical 'evidence' - fucking hilarious. I've got an original 70s paperback of this book (only lists Ravenscroft as author) for sale/trade if anyone wants it, I want the ludicrous thing out of my house!

"Cross of Iron - the rise and fall of the German war machine 1918-1945" by John Mosier.

very interesting. Most military historians seem to have quite a consensus-view of events, but this is pretty radical in its re-evaluation of the various design failures and wasted opportunities plaguing the German armed forces during this period. Certainly making me reconsider how much of the received wisdom about the war, from a strategic and technical point of view, is valid and how much is mythology. I'm going to track down his other book, "The Blitzkrieg myth" next.
