I just finished Grendel by John Gardner, which is truly fantastic. I highly recommend it. Also some poetry, the Joss Whedon X-Men trade paperback (great) and now both a book about Mary Magdalene and #9 Dream by David Mitchell.
I'm also reading with much pleasure the novel of a friend of mine, and other fiction by other friends. As for my own writing, it's always waiting, waiting, waiting. Sigh. Things are looking up though.
