What's on your Drool List?

#1  Postby j.mills » Mar 03, 2010 10:05 pm

What are you desperate to read? I have been waiting forever for the third volume, The Third God, of Ricardo Pinto's boldly original and woefully underexposed fantasy trilogy, The Stone Dance Of The Chameleon (first one being The Chosen, then The Standing Dead). And it dropped through my letterbox today!! :grin: :dance: :) Soooo looking forward to that!

The other one that springs to mind is another loooooong-awaited fantasy next-volume, viz George R R Martin's A Dance With Dragons. When the previous volume, A Feast For Crows, came out, his afterword suggested that he had written most of the next one already - but that was like four years ago, man! Come on, don't do a Jordan on us!

Easy - the 1883 items on the 76 pages of my Amazon wish list :)

A new Michel Faber book.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Mr Shaker, you need to get that list under control... If there's so much you want to read that you haven't even time to read the list... :crazy:

Given Amazon.co.uk's steam-powered way of going about things it's a bitch to scroll through ...

Back to the OP: I'm particularly looking forward to Hitchens's autobiography, coming out some time later this year.

I've had my heart set on Moral Realism and the Foundation of Ethics by David O. Brink for awhile now, but it's pretty pricey. Many of the other books I want to read on Meta-Ethics are not even available to order through Borders, so the internet looks like my best bet.

The Theory of Evolution is Right by Ray Comfort.

I fear I may be waiting awhile.
"It is not science that is arrogant: science can be defined as ‘humility before the facts’ — it is those who refuse to submit to testing and make unsubstantiated claims that are arrogant. Arrogant and unjust." - Stephen Fry

Wuzza? Who even knew there were meta-ethics? Crikey, like there's time in life to even get to grips with vanilla ethics!

"Murder is wrong" = ethics.

"What does wrong actually mean?" - meta-ethics.

That's cos I are edumacated, me :)

I'm desperate to get my hands on John Swartzwelder's latest, Earth vs. Everybody.

Had never heard of those books. Now I am worried that my hand will one-click of its own accord... :shock:

I'm after poultry books at the moment but I'm pretty much skint so have added them to the ever-growing birthday list. Desperately needing The Genetics Of Chicken Colours but it currently costs 80 euros inc postage, I saw it in the flesh as it were at a poultry show last weekend, I could've almost touched it (if it hadn't been on the top shelf, me being vertically challenged and all). In the end I went with Creative Poultry Breeding by Dr Clive Carefoot (also much needed) for 35 squid. Also after another expensive one, British Poultry Standards (6th edition) and Rare Poultry Breeds from our very own DaveScriv.

The next in Bernard Cornwell's Starbuck series, which he hasn't written yet, but says he hopes to get around to 'sometime' on his website.

It's only been 13 years or so.

I want to be reading the user's manuals for a Nikon D3x & a Hasselblad H3D-39II

Shadowrise/Shadowheart, the end(s) of the latest 'trilogy in 4 parts' by Tad Williams.

Bought Shadowmarch when it came out (Yippee, a new TW!!) just to find out that it's not yet finished, and at that time he hadn't even thought about the second book... :doh:

It seems to happen all the time when I buy his books... I'm sure there is a special section of his fan club devoted to sending regular messages 'Get on with it...' :)
