Just finished a fabulously interesting and entertaining book about the history of pornographic magazines in the U.S., as told through the life stories of Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione, Larry Flynt and Al Goldstein. The book is by former High Times publisher and Screw editor-in-chief Mike Edison, and is called Dirty! Dirty! Dirty! Of Playboys, Pigs and Penthouse Paupers: An American Tale of Sex and Wonder It is very well-written and informative (replete with copious footnotes), though it's also irreverent, opinionated, fast-paced and tough to put down. I would highly recommend it.

Here's a review of the book in case you haven't heard of it:

Recently finished an e-book version of "A Princess of Mars" (first John Carter of Mars novel) by ERB. Currently in the middle of "The Gods of Mars" (the second JCM novel). First ERB books that I've ever read, and I've really enjoyed them. Looking forward to reading more.

I'm just about to finish up Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and unless there is a major misstep in the ending it has been an enjoyable read. Fans of alternate history/historical fiction should enjoy the book as everything that actually happened in Lincoln's life is covered but the vampire aspect is skillfully interlaced within the story. There will be a movie coming out this year, hopefully it will be done as well as the book.

Finished up the Hunger Games and really enjoyed the book. I will definately read the other two in the series. Looking forward to the movie.

I apologize if I posted this upthread, but I read this sweet little trilogy in about three days. Enjoyed the heck out of The Breach, Ghost Country & Deep Sky. These books literally are action movies in book form...from cover to cover the story doesn't stop. Sort of a cross between Tom Clancy & The X-Files. Highly reccomended.

Outrageous Betrayal, a book about Werner Erhard, the founder of EST. It sure transformed him. He was once Jake Rosenberg, used car salesman until he became the leader of scheme that made him millions and gave him a coterie of nubile young wenches kneeling at his feet. I haven't reached the end yet. I think he flees the country though I could be wrong or it could be spun differently. If you liked, Inside Sceintology, you will like this.

"Jack the Ripper and the Case for Scotland Yard's Prime Suspect" by Robert House.


No need to read that. It was an intricate conspiracy to hush down a potential royal bas-*spoon* scandal. Jack was really a rogue Mason doctor. \(thumbs u


I just finished reading another JTR book - "Jack the Ripper: Secret Service" by Tom Slemen (available free on Amazon for Kindle owners).

The theory may be even more implausible as the one in From Hell (if that is possible) and should similarly be classified as "Fiction". If anyone is interested in a fuller review, check out the JTR thread in The Water Cooler. hm

A huge volume of the letters of P.G. Wodehouse. Easily as funny as his fiction and highly evocative of the twenties, thirties and forties.

Just finished reading Ben Mezrich's quasi-nonfiction book "Sex on the Moon: The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in History", about the 2002 theft of a 600-lb. safe containing 101 grams of moon rocks from NASA by three interns. It's the usual Mezrich fare - easy to read and hard to believe because of his self-admitted "recreated dialogue" and other liberties he takes with the facts, but it was a quick read and reasonably entertaining.
