QotD: I'm reading (or about to read)...

What books are on your nightstand?

The Last Witchfinder: A Novel

Bit of a mixed bag at the moment. The first two are books extracted from my massive "to be read" pile. The *Granta* country life issue is part of a general longing I'm feeling for the rural. *The Mary Sue Extrusion* is part of a long-defunct sci-fi series that I'm finally getting around to reading so I can flog it on Amazon for £15.

Finally, The Last Witchfinder is a recent purchase, which I'm enjoying immensely. It's part of a genre you might describe as "playful, intellectual, revisionist historical fiction" which is, in part narrated by Newton's Principia Mathamatica. Oh, and the sex scenes are great.
