I recommend when you sit down to read Allegiance, plan on reading Choices of One back to back with it, you will be happy you did!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

In case anyone wants to join me for a (re)read: I'm planning to start David Mack's Harbinger tonight, my first time reading it, and to open a review thread for it once I get done (which might take a bit, also have work-related reading to do), as per the idea to cover older books from here.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm doing a read by chronological publishing date based on wikipedia and memory alpha. Right now I'm on Vulcan! by kathleen Sky. I wonder about my fortitude for this goal since I just finished Spock! Messiah! and Pride of the Phoenix, two of the worst books that I have ever read.

Good luck! I hope it goes well! I'm trying to read all of Pocket Books' Trek publications and blogging about it (link in my signature). However, I'm moving a little more haphazardly, kind of reading what interests me at the time.

Finally finished the DS9 relaunch. Now reading the IKS Gorkon books before diving into the Destiny trilogy. The IKS books are definitely my fav Trek books yet.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm just over halfway through with Blind Man's Bluff right now. I'm sad to say I'm really disappointed so far. David is my favorite author, and I love NF, but no one in this book seems to be themselves, except for maybe Calhoun. So many characters are just off, the Doctor and Seven being the most salient examples. Unless there is a serious twist, I'm going to have to try to forget about it. :/

...I plan on reading some Octavia Butler...
I recently listened to the unabridged audios of Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents. Amazing, simply amazing. It's a damn shame Butler didn't live to complete this trilogy. What she finished is staggeringly good. Writing in the early '90's, Butler saw what America was turning into with a clarity that took my breath away. I deeply mourn her loss.

Parable of the Sower was read by Lynne Thigpen, who simply IS Olamina.The readers of Talents were OK, but unsatisfying after Thigpen's virtuosity.

I just finished a really interesting hard-SF space opera/sort-of-cyberpunk novel called Fool's War by Sarah Zettel. Here's my review. It's definitely got me interested in reading more of her SF.

I finished Honor in the Night, the last story in Myriad Universes: Shattered Light, last night. I'm about to start on Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within.
