A. A. Dhand's third DI Harry Virdee book, set in Bradford.  Literature it's not (simplistic, even), but interesting for being written from the perspective of a Sikh police officer married to a Muslim woman.
We are making a New World (Paul Nash, 1918)

The Terror, by Dan Simmons, a fictionalised account of Franklin's attempt to navigate the Northwest Passage with HMS Terror and Erebus.  Enjoying it so far.
 I think shit's gonna get weird.  :thumbsup:
Blimey, was I really reading that for more than two months?  Well, it is nearly 1000 pages...  Just finished it and I'm feeling slightly bereft now.  One of the best things I've ever read.

One of the best things he wrote, too. Better than his other one about the Yeti. Drood I'm not too sure of.  Both worth reading, though.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.
