: the act of gathering information from another's mind
there is a bit of a paranormal trend and those desperate enough to throw it in their books to get published. oh, and a lotta vampire crap too. lots.
Yeah, I remember some vamp book I picked up long ago that looked promising. The cover was really nifty, too. Turned out to be a study in masochism. Also, that "Kushiel's Dart" series by Jacqueline Carey or something... all about little girls valued for their love of pain. Okay... no.
