Two authors I have my {(.)(.)}s (they're eyes not breasts by the way XP) on at the moment would have to be Clive Barker and Oscar Wilde. Today I found an old, dusty, published in 1946, edition of some of his stories and plays so I'll get down to reading that. Last time someone borrowed it was in 1996, I'm shocked at the lack of appreciation for good literature among my fellow students at school.
Books I have at home and bought recently but haven't read yet are:
Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P Lovecraft
The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories by H.P Lovecraft
A Rare and Curious Gift by Pauline Holdstock

Damn, I need more time to read...still in the middle of 3 other books....

I found it as an e-book, but I don't know where to get it on paper. Not to sound like a Hitler fan or anything but the book was fantastic, he was really a very interesting guy. He plays on sympathy a lot though, which I found disturbing.
