Having been away, I'm a little behind on updating my reading list. My recent books are:
Man-Kzin Wars IX. An anthology of stories by various authors, set in Larry Niven's "Known Space" universe. Originally bought from Baen in 2002, and all very enjoyable. Recommended.
Police at the Funeral by Margery Allingham. The 4th book in the "Campion" series, and very enjoyable. Campion is asked for help by a family in Cambridge whose members are being systematically killed. An good story with some interesting characters and unexpected plot twists. Very good.
Retief! by Keith Laumer. Originally bought from Baen in 2002, this is a collection of all of Laumer's "Retief" stories, about a diplomat in a future galactic federation who solves problems by unorthodox methods. Excellent.
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells. A quick re-read of this in preparation for...
The Time Ships by Stephen Baxter. An authorised sequel to "The Time Machine" and follows on directly from it. An excellent hard-SF time-travel extravaganza with enough twists and paradoxes to satisfy the most devoted lover of time-travel stories. Absolutely excellent, but do make sure that you read "The Time Machine" before it to set the scene.

I finished my third long book (700+ pages) of the year. I chose a book that has been on my TBR list for a couple of years; Great North Road by Peter F. Hamilton. Which is a mixture of crime and sci-fi. I always hesitated to read it because I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi and it's a very long book. But I loved it, it was the best book I've read so far this year. For me it felt more of a crime book set in the future (with all the new technology) than a sci-fi novel with a mystery thrown in.
