Personally, I like his newspaper columns best. If you want an Eco-like book 
that *isn't* by Eco, I can recommend The Dumas Club. I've forgotten the name 
of the author, I'm afraid. It's the book that turned into The Ninth Gate, a 
film so confusing I had to read the book to figure out what it was about. I 
then found that it was a pretty okay story.

(Kristy Swanson made a better Buffy - in a poorer story.)
