- Finished M. T. Anderson's Feed. Go and read it if you haven't. It may not have weasels and wax faces, but it's chockablock with other intriguing stuff, has an utterly convincing voice, and the ending packs a real punch.
- On to E. L. Doctorow's The March, which I am 2/3 of the way through. Big, juicy, fascinating, full of horrors and wonders.[Update: now finished. I can recommend this one right to the end.]
- Gene Wolfe's Starwater Strains (when you mistype that, you get Starwater Straubs); I've read most of the first story without much registering on the enthusiometer.
