Well, one good thing about 2016 is that I read a lot of enjoyable books.

I keep a note of them partly to help me let go of some of the physical books and not hoard them. If I at least have a reminder of the book I read written it makes it easier for me to get rid of the actual book and let it go back into circulation so someone else can read it.

Here’s a big list of the ones I made a note of:

Gleam – Tom Fletcher
Subterranean London – Cracking the Capital – ed. Bradley & Garrett
Tales from the Fragrant Harbour – Garry Kilworth
Fight Club – Chuck Pahlaniuk

Stillness Speaks – Eckhart Tolle
How the Marquis got his Coat Back – Neil Gaiman
London Falling – Paul Cornell
Holy Terrors – Arthur Machen

Be Here Now – Ram Dass
Our Friends from Frolix 8 – Phillip K Dick
A Short History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters – Julian Barnes
The Centauri Device – M John Harrison
Down the Rabbit Hole – Juan Villalobos
1890s Notebook – Arthur Machen
Lowlands – WIll Kemp
Starship Troopers – Robert Heinlein
Drive – Mark West
Best New Horror 23 – Ed. Stephen Jones

I’ve already got a couple of bookshelves worth lined up for 2017,

Consider this our welcome to the New Year! Richard’s produced a stomping EBM track with my lyrics which are hopefully suitably contemplative for the changeover between 2016 and 2017.
