I'm starting James Joyce's Dubliners tomorrow. I've made it a point to read all of Joyce's major works, and I'm feeling a bit intimidated. This collection of stories sounds like the best way to ease into it.

Finished Himmler, now reading some work-related books.

Himmler was ... a book I won't get out of my mind immediately; dark stuff, but recommended reading.

The House on The Borderland (1908), by William Hope Hodgson.

Hodgson was a big influence on HP Lovecraft, and this is his most popular work. Vertigo released an impressive graphic novel adaptation of it in 2000 with art by Richard Corben.
