Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

As I finished on the bonus making of GENERATIONS chapter at the end of the paperback, its noted that there were 2 scripts written the one we see onscreen, and one by Maurice Hurley. Berman is quotes as saying he wrote "a very good script, a great scipt"...which they were maybe going to use for Star tREk TNG 2 which didnt happen. So anyone kno what his film was going to be about? Off topic yeah i kno but im asking.

all it says on Memory Alpha is that it involved Kirk time-travelling to the 24th century.

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.
That's been on my bookshelf for literally a decade. Maybe I'll finally read it

I am devouring Stephen King's "Dark Tower" saga. Yep, worth the hype. I'm now diving into Song of Susannah.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently reading Trust by Francis Fukuyama and earlier this year read The End of History and the Last Man by the same author (previously read two of his later books). Also completed four stories by Robert Louis Stevenson as an add on to "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde" which was the last book that I read last year. As for ST: currently reading A Choice of Catastrophes by Michael Schuster & Steve Mollman. Must read more fiction!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^I read Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde myself just recently, as a followup to watching Steven Moffat's Jekyll miniseries. It was, I think, the first Stevenson I've read. There was some very nice, poetic writing in it, like that marvelous description of the London fog, but the story structure is very strange by modern standards, with pretty much all the interesting stuff happening off-camera and not being revealed until the viewpoint character reads some posthumous letters after the story is effectively over. I can understand why the stage and film adaptations generally didn't follow the novella's structure.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished the last story in Vanguard: Declassified this morning. I loved the whole collection, but the last story was the best of the bunch. I knew what was coming with the fate of a certain character at the end, but I didn't how it happened so I was still rather surprised by how everything played. It was a very powerful scene. My Rating: 9.5/10
I started reading both "The Embrace of Cold Artifacts", in Myriad Universes: Shattered Light, and Knights of the Old Republic: Commencement.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within last night. I'm now reading New Frontier: House of Cards. I read the first six or seven NF novels years ago, but never got any farther then that, so I'm going to try to catch up this year.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished reading Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions by David Mack a few weeks ago, and then re-read Mirror Universe: The Sorrows of Empire as a follow-up.

Currently jumping back and forth between the Scott Pilgrim comic series by Bryan Lee O'Malley and Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges.
