Still reading On the Road, but also started into David Lynch's Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity. Seems like fascinating stuff so far.

Fugue State, Brian Evenson's latest short story collection - and probably his best one to date. It's the most consistently great, has a straight up comedy story in it (though not without a touch of horror), and is just generally excellent.

Couldn't finish Vellum, so I'm putting it aside for the moment....just can't get into it.

I'm reading your namesake Doc - just started Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe.

I can see why...just finished, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd love to see a production of this on stage...must be breathtaking (if done properly, of course).

It really would be. Goethe's Faust is also brilliant and mostly told in dramatic form, but the last act lacks the punch of Marlowe's I feel.
