    Finished Swan Song by R. McCammon, great book. Then knocked out GUNS by Mr. King.

    I try to stay away from political subjects these days as I have become disenchanted with politics of all kinds, but I really enjoyed GUNS. Put aside where anyone stands on Gun control, there is some really good material in Guns. Starting with the description of the way shooting events get covered by the news media, the history on Rage, and King's suggestion that both liberals and conservatives should spend a year watching the news coverage of media supporting their opposite view. I really like that last idea. Like King, I have spent some time in both camps, and have friends with such dogmatic views they have a hard time working through anyone else's viewpoint without bias. I have seen sociological studies where they test political followers with doses of false and true information, just to prove the point that interpretation of facts are often twisted to support someone's BELIEF in a person or political platform; regardless of actual facts. Again I will say it was very interesting.

    I've just bought Wind Through the Keyhole. Can't decide whether to read it now, or read the series again (properly, i sped read them all about 4 years ago). However, i'm part way through a re-read through Nighshift. So I guess I'm going to wait.

    My son wanted me to read an Ambrose Bierce story, so I did. It was very short and effective in it's creeapyness. I enjoyed it so much that I read 10 more of the stories in the book. While they were all good, by the 10th one the reoccurence of the same theme, already dead or talking to someone who is already dead, got boring. So now I'm rereading Night Shift which I havrn't read in ages.

    You don't really have to reread the series to enjoy Wind Through the Keyhole. I read Wind, THEN decided to reread the series.

    The Wind Through The Keyhole is a stand alone book. Think of it as a family reunion with the Ka-Tet. You've taken the journey, and now you are meeting up with "family" once again.
