Just finished reading “Grails: Quest of the Dawn” (Martin Greenberg, Richard Gillliam and Edward Kramer, editors), an anthology of fantasy stories about the Holy Grail. Bought it because it featured Neil Gaiman, Jane Yolen, Orson Scott Card and who can resist Neil Gaiman? 🙂 Got stuck at Orson Scott Card’s Noah/Atlantis/The Great Flood novellete, but otherwise okay. The stories were pretty standard fare, but the stories towards the end of the anthology are pretty good. I recommend it to anyone who is crazy about Holy Grail stories.
I was actually alternating between reading Thoreau’s “Walden” and “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance”, but got sidetracked when I spotted John Burdett’s “Bangkok 8” at the bookshop (along with Bitch magazine). So I am reading that instead. I must say, I am enjoying reading “Bangkok 8” immensely, so far.
