Chuck's Other Recommended Books

in association with Amazon.com Books
I read a lot. And I still don't read as much as I should, or as much as I used to. This online thing sucks a lot of time right into the old chronosynclastic infundibulum, never to be seen again. But I try.

Here's a bunch of stuff that I think you might like -- favorite authors, favorite books, recent stuff I've liked, and more. It's a bit of a wild batch of stuff, so please do give it a look. I'll bet you'll find some stuff you'll like here.

I'm starting to accumulate the book list slowly, as coding all this takes a bit of time. Don't tell me it's tiny now. I know. There'll always be more added, so check back frequently!

We've made it easy, safe and secure to purchase any of these books online through links to Amazon.com Books, "Earth's largest bookstore", with over 1 million titles on hand. Click any highlighted book title to order it through Amazon.com. Remember, many of these books are on sale from 10-30% below publisher's price!

Amis, Kingsley. The Alteration

Bradbury, Ray. Something Wicked This Way Comes
One of my favorite novels of all time.

Harlan Ellison

Ellison is quite probably my favorite writer, although you know me ... it's hard for me to pick one favorite anything. But more so than any writer, Ellison moves me. He wrenches my emotions, he scares me, he makes me cry, he makes me laugh, he pisses me off. He does everything to me that a truly great writer should. Lots of his stuff is out of print, but it looks like the excellent Edgeworks series is beginning to republish everything, gradually. Go for those, and go for whatever you can from this truly amazing writer.
Ellison, Harlan. Angry Candy

Ellison, Harlan. Edgeworks 1 : Over the Edge; An Edge In My Voice

Ellison, Harlan. Edgeworks 2: Spider Kiss; Stalking the Nightmare

Ellison, Harlan. Edgeworks 3: The Harlan Ellison Hornbook; Harlan Ellison's Movie

Ellison, Harlan. Edgeworks 4: Love Ain't Nothing but Sex Misspelled; The Beast That Shouted Love at the Heart of the World

Ellison, Harlan. Edgeworks 5: The Glass Teat; The Other Glass Teat

Ellison, Harlan. The Essential Ellison: A 35 Year Retrospective
A must. A wide swath of his material is in here, including much that's from other currently out-of-print editions.

Ellison, Harlan with Rick Berry, Illustrator. Repent, Harlequin! Said The Ticktockman: The Classic Story

Ellison, Harlan. Slippage: Previously Uncollected, Precariously Poised Stories
Ellison's latest collection of short stories and essays, brilliant as ever. One of these gave me nightmares for two days. Read it!

Frazier, Charles. Cold Mountain

Proulx, E. Annie. Accordion Crimes
A sweeping, panoramic novel about immigrants in America, told through the medium of an accordion, brought in by a Sicilian immigrant in 1890, and the many people who subsequently owned it for the next 100 years. If you're a book collector, go for the hardback edition, or if you like listening, try the audiocassette version.
