Once and Future King, by T.H. White
One of the definitive re-tellings of the Arthurian myth. Extremely well-written. Extremely engaged. Frequently depressing. Glad I read it, finally.
Education of a Bodybuilder, by Arnold Schwartzanegger
Self-aggrandizing autobiography of the beginning of the Governators career. Interesting insights into the man's psychology and training. Quick, easy, read. More comprehensive review here.
Muscle: Confessions of an Unlikely Bodybuilder, by Sam Fussell
Rich Oxford kid rebels against intellectual parents by pursuing career as bodybuilder. Interesting look into the bodybuilding sub-culture, marred by a sense that the author has never really bought into the culture as much as he claims to have. More comprehensive review here.
A Companion to Wolves, by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette
Faux Nordo-Germanic fantasy novel about super-intelligent wolves and the men who are bonded to them. The initial premise is interesting, and the writing is solid, but the plot ends up relying on a couple of odd deus ex machina, and includes one of the most annoying, non-Nordic cliches of all
Bloody Crown of Conan (Audio CD), by Robert E. Howard
Reviewed the book here. Audio version is well-done...audio quality is solid, voice acting is good. Have another one that I need to listen too...but so far, Tantor Media seems to do good work.
I think that covers it. Hopefully, I'll be a bit more on top of things moving forward.
