Quick–what are you reading right now? Would you recommend it? What’s it about? (check out the link to the left for the home blog and you'll find lots of great answers to the question.)
Of course, I'm reading several things at once. Mostly what I've been reading the past few days is my Work in Progress as I edit it. I highly recommend it but you can't find it anywhere. It's about lots of cool stuff.
It's about America and Americana. And Gods and gods. Real places and imaginary people (who are more real than the places). Neil describes it himself as meandering, in the best possible way. It won major awards for fantasy, science fiction, and horror (so it may be hard to classify). It's a contemporary story with lots of great folklore and history. I cannot recommend it highly enough - it's one of those books that I recommend to everyone regardless of what type of book you normally like. This one has it all: action, intrigue, murders, romance, family quarrels, supernatural beings, philosophical ponderings. And if you don't want any of that it's just a really fun read. The tenth anniversary version is out and it's got a few extra words over the original.
So what's everyone else reading?
