I recently read A Galaxy Unknown book 8 (Return to Dakistee).
I missed seeing that one being released. I've now grabbed that.

I'm currently reading DS9 - Cathedral by Michael A Martin and Andy Mangels.

Next up is one of the below:-

Namesakes (Greg Cox)
DS9 - Lesser Evil (Robert Simpson)
Return to Dakistee (Thomas Deprima)
Blood of the Fold (Terry Goodkind)
The Mephisto Club (Tess Gerritsen)

They'll be more on the list, but I'll be going through those first in some order or other.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Diane Duane's final installment of the Rihannsu saga, The Empty Chair. Here's my review! In a word: excellent.

I'm now reading William Shatner's The Return to fulfill a request from a friend that I review it. I'm also reading The Age of Persuasion: How Marketing Ate Our Culture by Terry O'Reilly and Mike Tennant.

Currently reading The Survivors by Marion Zimmer Bradley & Paul Edwin Zimmer (I strongly suspect that Paul Zimmer did the bulk of the writing -- the text doesn't read like something MZB would've written.)

Before that, I read Space: 1999: Android Planet by John Rankine.

Listening to Jack Vance's Dying Earth novels on the iPod (in the car & at the gym)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I see I haven't been here since October 28. Did some reading: "Blake: Complete Writings" edited by Keynes plus "Aphorisms on Man" by Lavater & "The Essays" by Bacon and "Fearful Symmetry: A Study of William Blake" by Northrop Frye. After reading the 'www trilogy' by Sawyer, I read "Out of the Dark" by David Weber which has a Deus ex machina so to speak. And I did read "The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh" (Volumes I & II) by Greg Cox. Lastly, I read a Signet Classic of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" by Stevenson.

Overall this year I read 30 Star Trek novels, 12 other fiction items, and, 26 non-fiction items. Or thereabouts. Gradually becoming a bit more literary too. Sigh.

2012 Week One:
Eon by Greg Bear (got about half of it left)

Red Claw by Philip Palmer


Philip Palmer turns science fiction on its head in this breathtaking thrill ride through alien jungles filled with terrifying monsters and killer robots. Space marines and science heroes! Gryphons and Godzillas! It's all here in this gripping tale of man versus nature.

Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised to see that people are still reading my old ALIAS books. I don't hear much about those anymore.

Hope you enjoy it!

Suffice it to say, I think it tops my list of King books. I wonder if Christopher has read it, given the time-travel angle.
I'm not a King fan, and it's not like I go out of my way to seek out time-travel fiction all the time, just when I was in the process of developing and writing Watching the Clock.
If you ever get around to reading it, we'd be interested in your take on how King handled time-travel. It's quite good.

Did you finish it? It wasn't too bad. Was a little lost since I had not read the previous 6 or 7 Brown books.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

yes, i'm now reading What Judgements Come. it was actually a re-read of PoA, as I was/am re-reading the series from Battle Born forward before i read Rogue Forces and Black Wolf.

PoA is actually probably my all-time favourite DB novel.

I've definitely read one of them before and enjoyed it (Two of a kind). Saw this one on Kindle and decided to get it. I don't think I've read "Road not taken" but I'll have to check it's not hidden away in my library somewhere because if I have, that one will be in paperback.

I think my favourite is probably still Flight of the Old Dog

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally finished Mission Gamma Twilight last night.

Going to finish Terry Goodkind's Soul of the Fire, and I also got a copy of Michael Reaves Shadow Games for Christmas, than I think I will dive back into Trek.

Before I go on with Mission Gamma though, Im going to read Indistinguishable from Magic.
