How about Exchange Server 5.5 Unleased (I think, I tossed it in a corner a few hours ago and don’t have the energy to go dig it out …). Turns out it should have been a ‘Dummies’ book but the name was already copywrit (copywrited? copywritten? copywrote?). Spend sixty bucks on a book, you’d expect some useful information, grumble, grumble, grumble.
Anyway, Frakie: Tom Robbins - have you read much of his stuff? I loved ‘Still Life with Wookpecker’, figure that the earlier books are just drafts and the later stuff is just a restatement.
Other favorites (who haven’t released any new stuff lately, if they’re even still alive) are Kurt Vonnegaut (any book - pick one, I’ll swear it’s my favorite); John Crowley (especially ‘Little, Big’, and always always always ‘Engine Summer’); John Irving - ‘Cider House Blues’ sent chills up and down my spine.
Okay, okay - John Irving actually has a new book out that I haven’t read yet, so we know he’s not (or very recently has become) dead.
