Right now, I am reading Perdido Street Station. Absolutely crazy book. Steampunk science fiction. Good imagery, cool creatures, interesting characters, and the overall plot has lots of twists (the good kind, not the unnecessary twists that occur for the sake of being a twist rather than advancing the plot). I've been really into steampunk literature the past year or so. Half-Made World is another amazing book, about exactly what the title says, and a world where Agents of the Gun are gun-toting men and women that are agents of demons that possess the firearms they carry, seemingly 'protecting' the world from industrialization. I also recently finished A Confederacy of Dunces, set in New Orleans. About a very fat, educated man that is basically disgusted with liberal society (not in a political sense, but more in a social sense; as an example, he despises women in make-up). It's absolutely hilarious. Highly suggested to anyone that likes books that aren't fantasy; I compare it to the humour found in A Spot of Bother, one of my favourite non-fantasy comedy books.
