My advice, skip Army of the Dead. It was absolutely terrible
I may take your advice.

I haven't heard many good things about it.

I thought they got a new author who was going to be continuing the series either this year or next?
I hadnt heard that, if its true I hope its someone that swings by and picks up her notebook because Im sure she had it all outlined. She is a terrific author who created an amazing culture in the Mandalorians.

Ironically when Clone Wars killed her book series she started writing books about the Clone Wars characters lol.

If you cant beat them join them I guess.

Feedback from a friend on my manuscript for my eBook talking about Asian-Americans in Star Trek (which was going to be an article).

I'm looking forward to reading:
*Star Trek: Cast No Shadow
*Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead
*Star Wars: Allegiance
Star Wars Allegiance is awesome and do yourself a favor and have a copy of Zahn's "Choices of One" handy to jump right into after Allegiance.

Star Wars: Republic Commando: Hard Contact 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.
Thanks for the heads up. I heard about the kerfuffle when it happened, but I didn't realize 501st had cliffhangers. That's okay; I'm a Robotech fan. That makes me an old hand at unresolved cliffhangers.

I had heard JD's report that someone else was going to step in and do one final book as well, but according to Wookieepedia that's not happening anymore.

I decided I was in the mood for something different, so I decided to through a CSI novel, Snake Eyes, into my reading mix.
I started a CSI novel as well today: Greg Cox's Headhunter.
Thanks! Hope you like it. I had never written a murder mystery before.
I'm about 1/3 through the book and I like it so far.

I just finished Star Trek: Vanguard: What Judgments Come. I really enjoyed it. I'm about to start Pysch: Mind Over Magic.

I suspect Zahn is planning on making them into a trilogy but I havent heard of a third book with the rogue Stormtroopers or Mara by him yet.

He has another one in the same time-frame coming in 2013, actually, but I think I read that it was Han Solo centered. I'll bet all the same people show up though.

Read the first chapter of the new Honorverse book "A Rising Thunder" by David Weber.

(Baen have got the Ebook version up on their website along with some sample chapters. I'll probably get the hardback version to match the rest when it comes out here)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished reading The Never-Ending Sacrifice by Una McCormack. Here's my review. In short: absolutely loved it. Great novel!

Now I'm reading Titan: Synthesis by James Swallow to catch up on all of the Titan stories.
