"This hand of mine glows with an awesome power! It's burning grip tells me to defeat you! Take this! My love, my anger, and all of my sorrow! Shining Finger!!~ "

"This hand of mine is burning red! It's loud roar tells me to grasp victory! Erupting...Burning...FINGER!!!~"

Alice in Quantumland, by Robert Gilmore.
I am intrigued. Tell me more!


I'm reading the Wheel of Time series again (again again, yeah... 4th time I start on this...), only now I own the books myself, rather than borrowing my dads ancient withered pocket books.

Well, just imagine Alice in Wonderland, but all the characters in Wonderland, are now related to Quantum Mechanics.
Yep, it's a book on quantum mechanics...

I'm watching you all. Always watching.

The Toyminator by Robert Rankin. 'Tis really very good. After that I'll probably re-read the Street Fighter: Sakura Ganbaru! mangas on my desk.

The last thing I read was a book called Moving Pictures. Basically, it's what happens when the Discworld gets its grubby hands on movies. AND IT IS HILARIOUS.

Going to bring this back from the dead.
Currently reading, (finished it anyway,)
Sherlock Holmes vs Dracula. (also known as "The adventure of the sanguinary count" ) by Loren D. Estleman.
Awesome book, I must say. I mean, the whole Idea is so ridiculous, but yet- So ridiculous that it manages to work, and come off as awesome.
I'd recommend it to Sherlock Holmes AND Dracula fans.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Oh my god, something as awesome as this exists? I hope Watson gets bitten.

Ahem.....reading The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

No, nobody is bitten. Dracula DOES however produce a second vampire in the events before the story, and she has her own little part in it all, abducting little children and biting them. (they suffer no real harm though.)

Oh no, the highlight is when Dracula himself pays Holmes and Watson a visit to threaten them to desist. Its like a staring contest between the two. (and although Holmes DOES maintain his usual calm disposition and actually pretty much wave Dracula off like it's no big thing, it DOES unnerve him.)

Old Professor Van Helsing makes an appearance as well in this.
