James Ellroy's trilogy of historical potboilers. Quite a neat and paranoid rewriting of history. Staccato prose, not for the limp of wrist:American TabloidThe Cold Six ThousandBlood's A Rover(Not read the last one yet, it's currently third in the pile behind Dawkins' newey and David Kynaston's 'Family Britain'. His LA Trilogy is pretty good too, labyrinthine plots, grisly murders and scurrilous gossip)

This is a very good idea. Can we have one for fillums too?
Sure, Sheff. I just found out how easy to set up these page thingies is. No problem.
Oh, and music would be good... I'll try not to hog it.
If you have a genre left Montana how about Science?
Yeah, science would be good.
I'll see if I can move things around a bit.
Anything by John WyndhamTCAM Harper LeeTime Traveller's Wife, Audrey NiffeneggerThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Stieg LarssonAnything by Anne Rice, Stephanie Meyer or Charlaine Harris (spot the theme there....)and if I'm stuck in an airport looking for something to read I usually go straight for one of the Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell, but that's more of a Ronseal than a hearty recommendation....
Oh and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen! (Paul Torday)
This is a good idea.
