    Wuthering Heights apparently served as inspiration for Twilight... Edward is Heathcliff and Bella's name comes from Isabella. Stephenie Meyer is stupid enough to think their relationship is anything but horrible.

    Oh, and I started reading Stephen King's Firestarter some time ago. I haven't read much lately...

    She doesn't even realize that the supernatural "romance" of the novel (if you can call it that) is between Heathcliff and Catherine? Just another reason to write her off, I guess.

    I've started reading Ginga Nagareboshi Gin (already have all 18 volumes, just never started to read) and re-reading Fruits Basket. ...I love both series to bits. Gin and Furuba, along with Ginga Densetsu Weed, Trinity Blood, Chrono Crusade and all my Quinrose manga are probably the only manga series that I will never sell or throw away. <3

    *scratches head* I just wish they translated Saint Seiya and its sequels (both canon and spin-offs) into Finnish, or even English... well, Saint Seiya DOES have an English translation. I just hate it since they turned Deathmask's name into Mephisto and Saori into Sienna... -_-;

    Well, I finally got BioShock Rapture yesterday and therefore are reading this book, as I simply love the franchise.

    I don't read any Manga right now, apart from the weekly chapter of Fairy Tail.

    I finally finished Jane Eyre a week or two back. I was right in predicting that I'd end up preferring Wuthering Heights. Still, I'm glad I read it. It is a classic novel after all, with some great parts to it. I really liked the character of Rochester, for example.

    Now, for a change of pace, I'm reading something from this century. It's non-fiction as well, though it reads somewhat like a novel. The book is The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. It's about the spectacular 1893 Chicago World's Fair, with special attention given to Daniel Burnham, the man behind it, and H. H. Holmes, America's first serial killer, who used the fair as a sort of hunting ground. Holmes is like something out of a Victorian horror novel. He built a bizarre hotel full of secret passages and deathtraps to take advantage of the fair. I'm a little over halfway through the book now, to the point where both the fair and the hotel are fully up and running, and it's a been a very good read.

    I am BETA reading. Got sent an interesting request for an Armored Core fic, a series I haven't edited before. Interesting premise, we'll see how this goes. I'm pretty sure half my writers lost interest before I did, but hopefully that won't be the case this time.

    Well, time to get back to it....

    I've been reading through John Buchan's Collected Supernatural Stories as part of my interest in stories mentioned in Lovecraft's "Supernatural Horror in Literature." If anyone has ever heard of the Hitchcock movie The Thirty-Nine Steps, Buchan wrote the novel it was based on. Lovecraft only specifically mentions three of Buchan's short stories, all of them from The Runagates Club (and one of them narrated by Richard Hannay, the protagonist of the aforementioned novel) and I liked them, so I thought I'd try out some of Buchan's other stuff. So far my favorite in the new collection is "The Grove of Ashtaroth," but others have been good as well. A while back I read a Buchan novel called Witch Wood, which was okay, though the horror aspect didn't play a big enough part in it for me.

    Well, I was reading Hoshi no Samidare when I reached chapter 53 and saw a second reference to the Pillows. ("Biscuit Hammer" and "Blues Drive Monster" are two of their songs.)

    Just when I thought the series couldn't get better.
