Today, I've finished Ian Rankin's latest Rebus novel, Fleshmarket Close. As always, it's a nice reminder of Edinburgh & a good read, even though this time, the suspense & cliffhanger bits have been replaced by a political message against xenophobia & racism. DI Rebus is indeed becoming more & more sympathetic!

Talking of Edinburgh, there's another reason why I am feeling all Scot today, and that's not even because of the weather. I've just discovered the new Dictionary in Tiger, so now I feel much like Dr. Johnson. Sausage ... SAUSAGGEEE?!?! But seriously: the Dictionary is not even featured as noteworthy ... now, let's have the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations and the Bard's Complete Works back, and NeXTSTEP is way up there again.
