Re: What are you reading?

I read Iain M. Banks' Against A Dark Background a while ago. Thanks for the reminder about good Sci-fi MLM . Need to visit a bookshop soon, although I can get a free E-reader with my reward points. I could get the electronic versions instead, if they're available.

Current book:

Double Dead, by Chuck Wendig

See, Coburn likes blood. The rest of the walking dead, they like brains. He’s smart. Them, not so much. But they outnumber him by about a million to one. And the clotted blood of the walking dead cannot sustain him. Now he’s starving. And nocturnal. And more ****ed-off than a bee-stung rattlesnake. The vampire not only has to find human survivors (with their sweet, sweet blood), but now he has to transition from predator to protector — after all, a man has to look after his food supply.

A great read. Recommended.

Re: What are you reading?

Following on from that, I then read "Bad Blood" (a "Double Dead" novella), by Chuck Wendig. Half the size of the first one, but still great.


Next up will be Blackbirds and Mockingbird, also by Wendig.

No matter what she does she can’t save Louis. But if she wants to stay alive, she’ll have to try.


It was actually a recent io9 review of Wendig's "Mockingbird" (the second Miriam Black novel) that got me into his books.

That lead me to a review of Blackbirds (the first Miriam Black novel).

... and that lead me to "Double Dead".

Acting on your recommendation, bought both the book and novella - read them over the last two evenings.

Excellent twist on a theme.
