The Rosetta Codex by Richard Paul Russo. Took me a long time to find this book because I had the author mixed up with Richard Russo. Hope its as good as Ship of Fools.

John Wilcock's A Guide to Occult Britain. Quite a little treasure I picked up from Atlantis (in Bloomsbury) on Saturday--it did indeed find a good home!

The Lie That Linked CIA to the Kennedy Assassination

The Power of Disinformation

Despite the surface placidity of the CIA’s “no comment” responses, internally the Agency was seething. The “Red Flash” and “Red Comet” editions of the New Orleans States-Item, in particular, were received with the kind of enthusiasm normally reserved for Pravda. The CIA had weathered public debacles like the Bay of Pigs and the Ramparts exposé; had deflected criticism in the press and from books; and had resisted attempts to broaden Congressional oversight. Never in its 20-year existence, however, had it confronted such a challenge from an elected public official with legal, albeit limited, authority. Garrison’s allegations— the “grossest we have seen from any responsible American official”—gave the Agency fits, just as they did Shaw and Shaw’s lawyers. For months, the tactics of what Rocca called “that wild man down there” preoccupied senior CIA officers. When Shaw’s trial appeared imminent, DCI Helms ordered an ad hoc committee to formulate a strategy—six of CIA’s highest officials comprised this “Garrison Group.

They got nothin' to hide. ... Right? :huh:

I finished Twilight… And I thought it was okay. Not as great as I thought it would be.

I think I'm gonna read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy… I actually haven't started it yet :lol:

I Was Right On Time, by Buck O'Neil. A great book by a great man, about his years in the Negro Leagues and the racial divide in this country and in baseball.

Australian Outlaw by Derek Pedley.

It's about Brendan Abbott who was dubbed the 'Post Card Bandit' by the aussie media because he used to send the Police postcards taken of himself & his accomplices outside various Police stations whilst on the run.

This bloke had a real aussie spirit of adventure but he did the crime so now he is doing the time.

Tony Perrottet - "Route 66 A.D.: On the Trail of Ancient Roman Tourists"

"Perrottet traces the Mediterranean itinerary of the world's first tourists - the ancient Romans - with the help of an archaic guidebook from the era. His entertaining narrative is combined with a witty, intelligent discussion of ancient history and culture compared with our own lives today."

What they forgot to mention that his "entertaining narrative" is also littered with xenophobic prejudices... the Italians are lazy, the Kiwis are constantly drunk, French tourists gather to sing "Frère Jacques", every inhabitant of Naples is a pickpocket ... <_<
