I’ve been slowly discovering Christopher Moore.  I enjoyed The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror a few years ago, and I just finished Bloodsucking Fiends: a love story.  I recommend both for good frothy fun.  Moore is funny in a slightly edgy, slackery way, without any real nastiness.  In Swatoons terms he is more of a Lore than an Agto.

But that means I should go finish A New Green History of the World, which is pretty depressing reading.  (Synopsis: It was a mistake to stop hunting/gathering and we’re all doomed.)
