    I just ordered:

    Masters of Doom, David Kushner - Story about the rise and almost fall of iD Software.

    The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction

    The Yage Letters, William Burroughs


    I am currently reading/just read:

    R. Crumb: Conversations - Selected interviews and articles on Robert Crumb, from the start of his career until 2003. Very good reading.

    A Hacker Manifesto - Book about the "hacker way of living", so far so good.

    Metropol - Comic book series by Ted McKeever. Exceptional art and story about a plague hitting a city that kills it's residents and turns them into demons from hell. Five people come back as angels in order to save humanity. One of them used to be a graffiti writer. Written in the late 80's, I believe, available in trade paperback.

    Shogun by Clive Cussler. Easily my favorite book. It's about the 1500's in Japan when the Christian priests and Europeans first arrived. SO fucking good.

    I think this is "What Book Are You Reading Pt. 16". Thanks for continuing the legacy, why write.

    I will post up tomorrow, as I am long overdue for a trip to the library, so that will be done tomorrow or the next day.

    conan the barbarian comic book.

    last issue, conan was fucking the prefect's concubine in the garden, when his luetenent (he's temporarly in the army for the flow) interrupts... conan walks away cause he got some, but falls upon the prefect's plans to take over the kingdom w/ the help of some demons and a chest of jems; but conan just cares about the loot. he goes and gets his drink on, and hires a thief to teach him to rack... w/ hsi new skills he goes and tries to steal the chest.... in the process, he kills some big ass snake, hundreds of soldiers, slices off his boss' hand, kills his bitch and the prefect
