For this fiction editor, no fiction lately! I recently finished How to Rig an Election: Confessions of a Republican Operative, am in the middle of Sacco and Vanzetti: The Men, the Murders, and the Judgment of Mankind, and have Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions waiting on my nightstand after reading a great review of it in the MIT Technology Review.
I do have one novel in the queue: Dennis Lehane's Mystic River. My fiancee and I were visiting the mystery book store--well, a house more than a store--up the street from us, and I pulled Mystic River off the shelf to find it was a whopping $35. Turns out the shop's owner, Kate, had Lehane autograph it.
