Been falling asleep reading Live From New York: The Complete, Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live as Told by Its Stars, Writers, and Guests.

Not because it's boring but because I'm turning into a narcoleptic old man.

Anyway, it's fascinating both in terms of the evolution of the show (Who knew what a big swinging dick Lorne Michaels was pre-SNL?) and the development of famous sketches.

Without Warning -- alternate reality PA stuff that was really great.

The sequel, After America remains great. On to the final book!

A solid, dumb, alternate history trilogy. The final book remained strong.

More trash reading. Steve Berry's The Patriot Threat. Berry and his mainstream, approachable conspiracies are always fun.

Travel reads:

Dr No was amazing. Funny, quirky, smart.

Shopgirl, Steve Martin's experiment, can be read in one sitting. It's a meandering mess, though.

Maybe There, yet another book about how Space: 1999 was full of squandered potential. This one presents original concept scripts, which are fascinating.

I'm catching up on some literary greats in what almost certainly falls under the "Trash SciFi" category: Horus Heresy from the Warhammer 40K universe because, just like Robin Williams, I'm a hairy Jew... I mean, I never grew up but still want to fuck Gloria Roberts.
