I have just finished the Stieg Larrson books
if you like ,criminal stories, then it might be a good idea to look hereafter!

Stieg Larrson died bevore those books were hosted, and i guess that some passages have been written by someone else, but at least 1900 sofcover pages out of 2200+ are original and all of them are good imo. Worth to give it a try

I'm really into my books relating to hell right now. Not sure if that's some sort of metaphor!

Reading the book Karolinerna (eng: The Charles men) by Verner Von Heidenstam, historical fiction about the fall of the Swedish empire based on letters and stories from the time making it a compilation of various short stories.

I like the concept of short stories, planing to read Anton Chekhovs greastest plays when im done!

City Infernal by Edward Lee is good and so is The Gates by Iain Rob Wright. The Edward Lee book is the better to start with!

When you dig history in a little, you realize that myths have a often a trivial origin.

Just like Diomede said :

"- If Menelas had had a bigger dick, Helen wouldn't have leave him to follow Pâris in Illium ... and there wouldn't have been any battle of Troy"
