Just finished "Cains Last Stand", the latest Commissar Blackadder book, and volumes 3-7 of Nikolai Dante. Currently about halfway through "A Lick of Frost", the latest Meredith Gentry one.

Less than 200 pages away from the end of Carrion Comfort, which is quite a feat considering it's almost 900 pages. Even the 1000+ page Signet edition of The Stand seemed shorter than this. It must have something to do with the pacing.

I just found this in one of my local bookshops

Space Captain Smith (Chronicles of Isambard Smith 1)

Quote
In the 25nd Century the British Space Empire faces the gathering menace of the evil ant-soldiers of the Ghast Empire hive, hell-bent on galactic domination and the extermination of all humanoid life. Isambard Smith is the square-jawed, courageous and somewhat asinine new commander of the clapped out and battle damaged light freighter John Pym, destined to take on the alien threat because nobody else is available. Together with his bold crew a skull collecting alien lunatic, an android pilot who is actually a fugitive sex toy and a hamster called Gerald he must collect new-age herbalist Rhianna Mitchell from the laid back New Francisco orbiter and bring her back to safety in the Empire. Straightforward enough except the Ghasts want her too. If he is to get back to Blighty alive, Smith must defeat void sharks, a universe-weary android assassin and John Gilead, psychopathic naval officer from the fanatically religious Republic of New Eden before facing his greatest enemy: a ruthless alien warlord with a very large behind...

I suspect it will either be very good or very bad. I will likely be amused either way.

I've heard good things about it, though many have said that it's a bit heavy on the innuendo.

The Big Book of Grimm
By Jonathan Vankin

Synopsis from bn.com:

 The Big Book of Grimm presents more than fifty folk tales collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in ways youíve never seen them before: uncensored, unflinching, and unsuitable for the faint of heart.

Rendered in gruesome glory by some of todayís top graphic and comic artists, these stories present a vision of the world as the Brothers Grimm saw it: dark, dangerous, and full of foreboding. There are predators behind every tree, wolves in grandmasís clothing, and woodland creatures lying in wait for the unwary. Thereís no home without negligent parents or a scheming stepmother, no marriage that isnít rancid with lies and deceit, and no byway or backroad that doesnít lead directly to a nasty gnome, leering dwarf, or wicked witch hungry for human flesh. Every gift comes with a heavy price, and no stranger is to be trusted. The poor suffer their share of humiliations and tragedies, but even Prince Charming canít be sure that heíll live happily ever after.

Originally intended as cautionary tales to warn youngsters of the wicked ways of the world and to keep them to the straight and narrow, these stories are brim full of treachery, torment, and terror. Prepare yourself for bedtime stories that are sure to keep you up all night. Fairy tales donít come Grimmer than these.

I highly recommend this book, if you've yet to read it :) It's by far my favorite, and since I picked it up when it first came out a few years ago: I've yet to be able to set it down for long. It's a series that's just getting into the works. The second book just went to paperback, and the third is expected sometime in Febuary. You'll thank me for this later. ;)

The Thorn of Camorr is said to be an unbeatable swordsman, a master thief, a ghost that walks through walls. Half the city believes him to be a legendary champion of the poor. The other half believe him to be a foolish myth. Nobody has it quite right.

Slightly built, unlucky in love, and barely competent with a sword, Locke Lamora is, much to his annoyance, the fabled Thorn. He certainly didn't invite the rumors that swirl around his exploits, which are actually confidence games of the most intricate sort. And while Locke does indeed steal from the rich (who else, pray tell, would be worth stealing from?), the poor never see a penny of it. All of Locke's gains are strictly for himself and his tight-knit band of thieves, the Gentlemen Bastards.

Locke and company are con artists in an age where con artistry, as we understand it, is a new and unknown style of crime. The less attention anyone pays to them, the better! But a deadly mystery has begun to haunt the ancient city of Camorr, and a clandestine war is threatening to tear the city's underworld, the only home the Gentlemen Bastards have ever known, to bloody shreds. Caught up in a murderous game, Locke and his friends will find both their loyalty and their ingenuity tested to the breaking point as they struggle to stay alive...
