Accidentally posted in the wrong place:

Finished Destiny's Shield.

Iain M Banks, The Player Of Games. I've read it before; it's an early novel in his Culture universe, and therefore pleasantly short, to be read in an evening.

Steam Railway #390.

Jack Williamson, Reign of Wizardry. About the overthrow of Minoan civilisation in a slightly more magic world than our own. I read it as a child - something I remembered when I got to the memorable scene with people being roasted alive in jars. This was quite good, although it is showing its age slightly.

About 2/3 of a Victorian-ish book of short stories at the Tivoli, but I gave up because it wasn't very good.

Terry Pratchett, Nation (finished). Karen's copy which I must give back to her. Pratchett's juveniles are often quite reasonable, and I enjoyed this one.

Oh, and the Penn and Teller book of food tricks whose name I forgot. More fun than "How to play in traffic".
