“Cyclonopedia” - Reza Negarestani ???/10

What the fuck did I just read. A farce in the form of H.P. Lovecrafts Necronomicon reconstructed as a fake academic thesis. Or something like that, I guess.

“Magnetic Field(s) - Ron Loewinsohn 9/10
Reads like a more focused DFW

“Phantoms” - Dean Koontz 7/10
This was mentioned in “Cyclonopedia” I recently read which is the only reason I decided to check it out. Was better than his usually schlock. The concept of a life form that is a mimic being able to absorb the collective intelligence and evil of humanity was interesting. This got made into a movie with Ben Affleck and Rose McGowan that is the epitome of late 90’s early 2000’s garbage.

Hyperion

Been a long time. Trying to trick my brain into reading books again. I guess Dan Simmons sucks now. I don't know much about it.

I'm trying to get through Satantango before I (possibly) subject myself to a seven hour long movie. It's under 300 pages but feels like ten thousand.
