Well, aside from Cat's Cradle, our kids are bugging my wife and I to read some of their stuff.

I had read "The Warriors", which is about this whole other world of cats and was actually not too bad. Thought I was going to get to read "The Golden Compass" which my other son just finished, but he returned it to the library to get the rest of the series. So instead I am reading "So you want to be a wizard", the first of a (so far) 8 book series by Diane Duane. I don't think I'll like that as much

But it is a break from Lovecraft …

It is interesting that while it has been perhaps 10 years since reading Cat's Cradle, I remembered all of the humor, I knew it was cynical but had forgotten just *how* bitter and cynical it is wrapped in all of the humor. And the ease of reading it belies just how great his stuff really is.
