Recent Books

Classical Mythology: The Greeks. Audio lecture series.
Aeschylus: The Orestia (The Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers, The Eumenides). Translation (Paul Roche) used a lot of modern equivalents; my complaint with that is that I like to know whether a classic is the source of a phrase.

James Patterson: 1st to Die (audio).

Dean Koontz: Forever Odd. Good; moved on to Brother Odd (audio).

Walter Lord: A Night To Remember. (might have listed this already - it was a few months back)

Lillian Jackson Braun: The Cat Who Said Cheese, The Cat Who Tailed A Thief, The Cat Who Sang for the Birds.

Peter W. Huber: Galileo's Revenge. Case studies where cherry-picked expert witnesses won cases despite giving testimony that was discredited in scientific circles.
