    [Books General]

    Reading's slowed to a crawl. Last year I read: - Haruki Murakami's "Underground", about the Aum Shinrikyo subway attacks in 1995. A Buddhist cult gassed the Tokyo subway using Sarin. This is a collection of interviews with victims, and uninvolved cult members. - Haruki Murakami's "Hard-Boiled Wonderland, and the End of the World" - Scifi/Fantasy novel. Don't want to say much more than that. It's a good idea to go into that one blind - Aubrey Wood's "Bang Bang Bodhisattva", A queer cyberpunk mystery. Underrated. - William Gibson's Bridge and Sprawl trilogies entire (Again). Old favourites. I love them. - Started but haven't yet finished "Noli me Tangere", the first novel by Jose Rizal, second president of the Philippines and revolutionary martyr.

    Happy Xmas

    Dad gave us a crapload of gardening tools. I'm talking like a hoe, rake, spade, edger and fork. We got a community gardening plot so they'll see use! There was also a hamper with various cheeses and spreads and things, too many to list.

    Kevin Mitnick, (hacker) died 59. Guy was a phone phreak before he even touched a computer. His autobiography, 'Ghost in the Wires' is nuts https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Mitnick

    Famous Deaths

    Cormac McCarthy died, aged 93. (Author of The Road, No Country for Old Men, and Blood Meridian.) Massive loss to literature. No-one wrote like him. Once in a century talent and completely unique.
