The textbook. I got a copy for my birthday from a friend on my course (silversmithing) because last year I made a necklace and brooch shaped like a scapula and put the atatomical labels on them. xD

Or did some writer write some new one
But if it is a Boy in Darkness you should read it it's pretty good


Read that , its only a novella rather than a full book.
Titus Awakes was published this year and was written by Peakes wife in the 70's based on his notes and a few pages of text. It was then lost and only found again a few years ago.

Waiting on my bedside locker -

The Book Thief,
Kazuo Ishiguro short stories
All Asimov's Foundation series except the last one, which my library didn't have.
I get anxious if I don't have a pile of books waiting :lol:

Oh, and Snuff, which my daughter is bringing home for me soon.
In the beginning there was nothing, and then it exploded.
