So here's another great title, courtesy of @Doctor Chill in an old
Post:

The Tobacco-stained Mountain Goat.

Love that title.

Andrez Bergen does have some lovely titles, doesn't he?

Found another one today that I'm currently reading: When the Heavens Fall. I can almost feel the religious themes undulating below.

Hmmm.... Two that come to mind are The Lesser Heaven and Best Served Cold (already mentioned) :)

On my TBR pile is My Life As a White Trash Zombie (White Trash Zombie #1) by Diana Rowland

I've heard that's a fun read :)

Not changed my mind about what I wrote, but I can add more (when I get home hehe)

Re-reading this thread I realised that @Anna Smith-Spark used to post here, and now she's a famous author! I didn't remember her, eeek (got her book at home but have't read it yet...)

Oh don't let that stop you! I've been known to resurrect *very* old threads when I finally read the book.
Nobody's beat me about it (so far!) ;D

Good to hear

I'm quite fond of Time of Contempt. It's evocative while I also don't really know what's implied by it.
