I'm still reading Thrill Power Overload - Forty Years of 2000AD. It's a non-fictional account of a non-fictional comic dealing entirely with horror and science fiction! Very interesting to read the behind the scenes 'gossip' concerning the various stories that have spanned the years.

Football for a Buck: The Crazy Rise and Crazier Demise of the USFL by Jeff Pearlman. All about the American football league which was played in the spring that started in the early 80s and in the end how Donald Trump ended up destroying it. I'm not a big reader of sports themed books but at the halfway point, this is fascinating and fantastic.

Since he passed recently, I'll plug William Goldman's wonderful 'Adventures in the Screen Trade' and 'Which Lie Did I Tell?': excellent books about working in Hollywood, the writing process and being in a creative career. Plus, not many meoirs can go from crippling depression to stories about gay lions.
