    That was some evil **** that went down. A piece if history that most people don't know and Japan would like to forget. I am sometimes in sad disbelief over what horrible things human beings are capable of.

    Weave-world by Clive Barker. Quite possibly the most original dark fantasy novel I've ever read.

    The Expanse. I haven't been so captivated by a book series since I read the Foundation and Dune in high school.

    I read this many years ago. Very strange and quite disturbing from memory.

    just finished reading 'The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down' by a Korean monk names Haemin Sunim.

    It's mainly about mindfulness, and definitely worth one's time.

    Next up is Nudge by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein, this is a guide on how to make better decisions. I've been exposed to some of their work in Daniel Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow. Truly fascinating insights on human behaviour.

    Anyway here it is:

    "The Dead Mountaineer's Hotel," by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. This is a novel they wrote just prior to "Roadside Picnic," the inspiration for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. movie and video games. Very funny at times... sort of a mashup of Agatha Christie murder mystery with a sci-fi/fantasy edge.

    After I finished it, I was inspired to re-read Roadside Picnic, which I haven't done in a while. That's a classic, with a very different feel from Western sci-fi. I might try to track down some of their other books that have been translated.

    The Great and Secret Show by Clive Barker. One of the best books I've ever read. The visions Barker comes up with are beyond other authors in the genre.

    Mastering the Market Cycle by Howard Marks. I'm a huge fan of his Oaktree memos - for those interested, we're towards the end stages of the current economic cycle.

    Fun book.
    His books on Oysters and Salt are also worth reading.

    This one’s good too:
    “The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins” by Tsing:

    Just finished 100 years off solitude and started on the zahav cook book. The first couple of pages have been very interesting, a cook book that actually makes you want to read rather than just flip and reference to.
