"Thanks, Jeff! I just returned from the public library where the local SF group was discussing Live Nude Aliens and Other Stories. As for being between the Bible and Swamp Thing, that ends up sounding like a great compliment! I'm glad you…"

"LIVE NUDE ALIENS: Sorry it's taken me so long to get to this, JD. I've had it since March but you caught me between the Bible (which I didn't finish) and Swamp Thing. For those of you who may not know, Live Nude Aliens is a collection…"

"Doc, I do think there were some good ideas in the book, its just the overall product was lacking. Some ideas that I did like: Their warships did not have gravity fields, because they needed more space for shields and weapons. Traits that were rare…"

"Thanks Trav, Your reading experience was similar to mine. When reading a book becomes a chore I throw in the towel and move on to something else. I think the Lensman concept sounds a lot more intriguing than the actual stories. Like a lot of golden…"

Travis Herrick (Modular Mod) replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
"Doc, I finished up the First Lensman a couple of weeks ago, and considering it took me almost 2 months should tell you something. I thought it was okay. The problem is that the story never sucked me in, and propelled me to keep reading. Also, at no…"

"Hmmm.. I've read the audiobook of I Am Legend -- back when they were still called "Books on Tape" -- and liked it a lot. But I don't think it was me who recommended it to you. But the book was paired up with Matheson's…"

"No, I'm pretty sure it came out of BtVS, but I can't recall because of vampire lore or the whole "vampire as good guy" thing. I just asked Tracy to contact Alan M. via Facebook and ask him if he remembers. "

Travis Herrick (Modular Mod) replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)

"I AM LEGEND: I finally got around to reading the Richard Matheson novel. Sure, Richard Willis recommended it to me only last week, but Alan M. did almost 15 years ago. Now I'm trying to remember (exactly) why. Not that I didn't like it; I…"
