Well, I enjoyed Namesakes.
Thanks. Glad you liked it.

I miss writing those ALIAS books. That was a fun gig while it lasted.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm currently reading two books at the moment!

1. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Operation Barracuda by Raymond Benson (Alias-David Michaels).

2. DS9: The Search by Diane Carey.

No disrespect to Carey, but here metaphors in that novel are laughable. ("The Defiant didn't exactly have the water-lily elegance of starships that had come before her, but then again, she wasn't meant for a casual swim.") Still not a bad read, though

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I got through The Castle of Otranto over yesterday and today. It's nice and short, which is good because it's also really not all that great. I mean I know it's the first Gothic novel, but still. Next up on the 100 Great Novels list is Pride And Prejudice.

I also want to read some Dickens, seeing as how it's the bicentennial of his birth this year, and since I got the latest biography by Claire Tomalin. I'm thinking of Nicholas Nickleby, Dombey And Son, and Our Mutual Friend (this isn't counting all the ones I've already read).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished up Rise Like Lions last night, absolutely LOVED it. Starting Star Wars: Republic Commando: Hard Contact by Karen Traviss today. On deck is Roads Not Taken: Tales of Alternate History (edited by Gardner Dozois and Stanley Schmidt) which I got for Christmas.

I'm also in the middle of Blankets, a graphic novel by Craig Thompson. It was also a Christmas present from a friend of mine who loves comics. I've never read any of Craig Thompson's work before, but I'm really loving it.

[QUOTE=Fer;5532058Starting [I]Star Wars: Republic Commando: Hard Contact [/I]by Karen Traviss today.

I hope you enjoy it, all 4 of her Republic Commando novels were awesome, and the followup 501st was great but I wouldnt recommend reading that unless your ok with never getting a finished story.

When Lucas incorporated the Mandalorian culture into his Clone Wars cartoon series, it relegated everything she had written into a what if universe of star wars.

She decided that if that was the case she would stop and write no more so 501st which was book 1 of 3 and has some killer cliffhangers in it, is left open ended.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I thought they got a new author who was going to be continuing the series either this year or next?

My advice, skip Army of the Dead. It was absolutely terrible
