    What Are You Reading Right Now? (Non-GA)

    Wow! If you like fantasy then look for 'King of Ashes' by Raymond Feist. It's the first book in a new series called the Firemane Saga and it's got me hooked.

    The Watchman - by Robert Crais.
  3. I really enjoy both series too. For me the author has that gift where you say, 'I should do something else but I'll just read one more chapter first.'.
  4. Good Grief! The capabilities I posited in my Mparntwe story for 3D-printers 100 years in the future are evidencing here and now. I think this article about 3D-printing being able to reach molecular limits, as of right now, might be of interest - it sure grabbed my attention. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/06/180620162430.htm

    Make us laugh!

    Oh My! I couldn't help but smile as I read through the exploits of this 88 year old farmer and his golf buggy bulldozer. http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2018-06-17/golf-buggy-bulldozer-bingle-gives-farmer-son-grey-hairs/9873090

    The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

    As Myr says, this series is a complete classic, and I remember vividly how I was captivated when I first read the stories over forty years ago. C S Lewis wrote a huge number of other books as well, mostly also with some aspect or theme of Christian theology. My dad gave me one called 'The Screwtape Letters' where a young demon is being coached by the devil in how to tempt humans into sin. He wrote a science fiction trilogy, quite famous at the time, once again with big themes of religious theology running through them - Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra and That Hideous Strength. I loved them but they are probably not the style for today's readers. C S Lewis and J R R Tolkein were members, along with other Oxford University Dons, of a group called 'The Inklings' who gathered, for the most part, to read and review excerpts of as yet unpublished literary works.

    Ask an Author is always interesting - as is evidenced yet again.

    Storm Breaker by Anthony Horowitz

    Yay! I've read the whole series - enjoyable and easy read. Anthony Horowitz, who wrote the marvelous Foyle's War series for television, has been chosen by the James Bond estate to write new Bond adventures. I enjoyed the first one called 'Trigger Mortis' and there's a new one which I'm looking for.
