Oh and since when couldn't spoilers be posted in a review thread, they kind of go hand in hand and if people complain about being spoiled, tuff titties to them.
Since the thread title doesn't have "SPOILERS" in it.

Personally, I don't care about spoilers, most of the times, considering I need to read these threads before I get my book. However, some people might just be in the review thread to see whether they should buy the book or not, they might not want to be spoiled about certain details.

You could always start a thread with for spoilers.
I think I won't do that.

Thie thing is though, it's a review thread, reviews including spoilers, whether large or small and if someone complains about spoilers in a review is very pretty silly indeed.

IFM is pretty standalone. As long as you're familiar with TNG, the series and the movies, you should be fine.
Very cool! I'll be reading this along with the rest of you then.

Going to Barnes and Noble today and see if they have it in stock. Wife has abducted the Kindle and won't give it back.

Success. Another nine bucks swallowed by my Star Trek addiction.

Re: Star Trek: TNG: Indistinguishable From Magic Review Thread

I'm about eighty pages in and enjoying it for the most part. But it feels like "old folks week" aboard the Challenger and that can be both good and bad. Guess I'll just have to see where it goes...

B&N called today and I picked it up. About six chapters in, and quite enjoying it.

I do admit at being delighted at the featuring of the Galaxy class.

I'm up to page 112 and I have a question. I may have simply missed it or it may be addressed later on...

Finished it today. Good book. A few nods to DTI in there. Lonemagpie, are you in cahoots with Chris Bennett or what?

Because of the conceptual overlap in our consecutive books, David and I did correspond in order to keep consistent with each other.

I have just one question for those of you who have read it. Is the familiar female Dr. referred to on the page Lonemagpie posted in the other thread Pulaski or someone else?
