    He's writing it right now, but even if he can't finish, his wife -- who's edited all of his books, I believe -- will finish it for him using his notes and stuff.

    Eddings is a fscking fantastic fantasy writer. Redemption of Althalus is a great stand-alone novel. His Belgariad/Mallorean series are both fscking awesome.

    I'm currently reading a collection of stories by H.P. Lovecraft, it's great stuff if you're into a different kind of horror (by different I mean not cliched, so avoiding all the sort of stuff like ghosts and pirates or whatever).

    Currently reading 'The Eight' by Katherine Neville. It's a great one If you like stuff like the Da Vinci Code. This one is about Charlemagne's chess set instead of jesus and co.

    I hate books pretty much. It's odd though because I have gone through phases where I would read a Lord of the Rings Book and a Harry Potter Book a day, for about two weeks and then I gave up.

    It's just I have a horrible attention span, and concentration. I also cannot visualize well, so I stick with television and computer.

    But I also do other activities, unfortunately reading is not one of them.

    I like reading on the odd occasion. I have only ever finished one book (excluding school books) xD
