    I'm now reading The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter. This seems to be getting a lot of praise, so I'm looking forward to getting into this one.

    Newest book to read: Bob Dole: The Republicans' Man for All Seasons (1994) by Jake H. Thompson. It was a Christmas gift 25 years ago, so I figured it was about time I take it on.

    I think i’ll give The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade (1857) another try. I love Melville but goddamn his books can be a slog.

    One of my favorites, going all the way back to the late '70s when Raise the Titanic was a newspaper comic strip (I read the Dirk Pitt-starring book a few years later in high school). In recent years, I have been reading his turn-of-the-last-century-set Isaac Bell novels and have one in my reading pile to go through sometime this year.

    Latest book I'm reading: The Stranger (1942) by Albert Camus. I know I read it in high school back in the early '80s, but I can't recall if it was the entire novella or just a chapter or two (I do remember that it was the first time I ever discussed existentialism). At any rate, I'll be a more conscientious reader this time.

    The Rebels' Hour by Lieve Joris

    51lRhy5MjrL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    'Much more than a portrait of a Congolese herd boy who becomes an important military man, THE REBELS' HOUR is the portrait of a vast and chaotic country in a state of near-anarchy. I have long admired Ms Joris's African books, but this one is both powerful and timely, intensely imagined.'-Paul Theroux

    Jesus Freaks - a book on the children of God cult. It focuses on Davidito aka Ricky Rodriguez a boy raised in the cult to be its messiah who later went on to try and kill his own mother, co-founder Karen Zerby, for leaving him exposed to brainwashing and abuse..

    (While I'm here) What do you think are some UNDER-published books you feel deserve more exposure?

    My nominees are Frank L Baum's sequels to Wizard of Oz, Thomas Harris' Black Sunday and Peter Reich's A book of dreams. And YOU?

    New book: Baseball's Western Front: The Pacific Coast League During World War II (2004) by Donald R. Wells. Though not like getting an autograph from Stephen King or J.K. Rowling , I had it signed by the author at a SABR convention.
