I can't seem to find time to read Basilisk Station. I'm in full October swing and Halloween really has my attention. I don't think I can commit to reading a book until November. If you guys want to recommend books for this month I'll still do the polls and everything for you but if I don't hear anything about it I'm going to put the next poll up the last week of October for a November 1st start.

yar. sorry folks.

Dies the Fire by S.M. Sterling

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0451459792//ref=br_b_nr_2/002-5936939-1298459?v=glance&s=books&vi=reviews

For survivors of a mysterious event that caused electricity, internal combustion engines, and gunpowder to fail, the Pacific Northwest furnishes enough land to support subsistence existence in a future that belongs not to today's rifle-toting survivalists but to people who know older ways. Musician Juniper takes refuge on her family's land with a growing group of friends that becomes "Clan MacKenzie." Reenactors know useful things such as how to build log houses and craft bows for hunting. Meanwhile, Mike Havel, a pilot who was flying when the Change happened, and his passengers, having survived crashing in a frigid lake, gather followers, too. Thanks to a former Society for Creative Anachronism (a real organization of eclectic reenactors) fencer, and after hard work and the accident that gives their group the name "Bearkillers," they have the knowledge to sell their protective services. There are villains, too, such as a medieval history professor who starts a feudal revival, in Stirling's intriguing what-if about modern humans denied their treasured conveniences. Regina Schroeder
