I've been reading "The crysalids", by John Wyndham. It is sort of a reversal of "The Midwich Cuckoos", because these time we are on the side of the kids. It takes place on a post-apocalyptic Labrador, where all "different" things, from crops to people are erradicated. We follow the POV of David, a kid that has no external mutations, but who can "connect" telepatically with other mutated kids. As he grows up they have more and more difficult to hide their power from the rest of people.

The Digital Church is a truly unique, apocalyptic sci-fi fantasy tale set in the near future, as the earth races towards an undiscovered black hole in the heavens. The story's central character is Martin Henzel, a dark and cynical Hollywood underground artist in his late-twenties, who doesn't know who he is, where he's going, or why he's here. His nightclub world of alcohol and one night stands will come crashing in around him, when he goes on a date with his co-worker, Megan Jamison, whose rich and powerful father, Nathan, is involved in a plan to commit terrorism on a genocidal scale. Martin suddenly finds himself being contacted by a bizarre spiritual entity that exists within the purple fire of nightmare visions, some of which are all-too-real, as the truth of impending genocide sees city after city around the globe methodically being destroyed. Ultimately, Martin will be forced to answer a deeply troubling question within himself: "Can you love?"

I'm currently ready "THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN". I like it, it's not dated like some books can be

i'm not sure how much this is helping my arachnaphobia, however...

I just picked up some books from the library.  One of them is Half the Blood of Brooklyn: A Novel by Charlie Huston.  It's the third novel in a series of books centered around Joe Pitt, a private detective (of sorts) who also happens to be a vampire.  The series is pretty good, it combines dark, gritty hard boiled detective genre with horror.  It deals with (what I like to call) REAL vampires, not these whiny, Euro-Goth trash, "Woe is me" vamps you get in Anne Rice novels. 

If you like your fiction dark in a Sin City/film noir type of way, I highly recommend the series.  The first novel is Already Dead http://www.amazon.com/Already-Dead-Novel-Charlie-Huston/dp/034547824X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1220415518&sr=1-2

That sound like my kind of book.

I decided to put down Battlefield Earth since it was getting too stupid for me to enjoy it.  So I decided to start reading Jurassic Park instead.  I'm just about half way through the book and am really enjoying every bit of it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
