Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Rings of Time, a very enjoyable story. Today I'm starting on re-reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. On deck is Romulan War: Under the Raptor's Wing.

Started Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn again. Must be about 15 years since I last read it.
Are you reading the new anniversary addition with the annotations?
Still the original one. As I had that one, I didn't bother getting the anniversary one. I wouldn't mind seeing the annotations (and to see if there are other changes) but we'll see about that.
I didn't buy it for the same reason. But after looking at it in the bookstore, if I were to reread it I'd probably break down and buy it!

The quality is a bit mixed, but overall I would say it's worthwhile.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Romulan War: To Brave the Storm. It's very good, in fact I was surprised by how good it was, considering how bad Michael A. Martin's last Trek novel (Seize the Fire) was. I didn't much care for the first Romulan War novel, Beneath the Raptor's Wing, mainly because of the reporter side story, so I was glad to see that particular plot didn't make a return in To Brave the Storm. Overall, I think it may be the best novel in the Enterprise relaunch.

I'm about to start on Bioshock: Rapture.

Finished Mission Gamma: Cathedral last night and loved it. Now I'm onto Genesis Wave, Book 3 and from there it will beach onto Mission Gamma: Lesser Evil.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished up The Sundered last night. Not quite as brilliant as I remembered with the resolution to the diplomatic crisis occuring a bit too quickly. Besides that, the Neyel were a fascinating race.

Up next... Taking Wing.

Going old-school and hitting a classic next: just started Stranger in a Strange Land.

I had the same problem with the last Enterprise book. The reporters side story was not that interesting. I may pick up this novel now that I know that angle has been abandoned. Thanks for the info Cap'n Crunch.

I have loved much of the DS9 Relaunch books except for the first 3 Mission Gamma books and the 3 Worlds of DS9 books. Enjoyed Mission Gamma Book 4 Lesser Evil and really liking the Warpath which follows Worlds of DS9.

Thanks. I was able to track it down. So, I'll read that one DS9 relaunch story with Brunt after Soul Key, but before Rise Like Lions.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^Ironically the last MG book was my least favorite, and I consider Twilight (the Mission Gamma book, not the vampire one) one of my favorite novels.

EIDT: I need some help. I need to clear some space of off my Nook wishlist, so I was going to buy a couple books, but I have several I'm debating and I was hoping for advice.
I want to get two of these, I just not sure which two I should get. And in an attempt to continue expanding my horizons beyond Trek I only want to get one Trek book.
Dresden Files bk 5: Death Masks
A Song of Ice and Fire bk 2: A Clash of Kings
ST: Cast No Shadow
STVOY: Children of the Storm

You should have seen the looks my friends were giving me a few months ago when I told them I was reading Twilight!
