Wow - I'm so late to this party. Just yesterday, I finished a book called "Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask" - it was released into bookstores, and then later released as a free ebook. Pretty decent, especially considering the price.
Before that, I read Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. I liked it quite a bit.
I've been alternating books, something random and then another book from a series I finally got all of after a long time. The series is called Wild Cards, and if the people who made Heroes haven't read it, I'd be shocked. The Wild Cards books are written by teams of authors (some very well known) and edited by George R. R. Martin. If you can find them (think online), they're really good stuff. They were written through the late 70s, 80s, and into the 90s. There are 13 of them, and then a new trilogy was written later. Sadly, if you try to read them starting somewhere other than the first book, you'll probably be pretty lost.
