Which one did you write? (If you mind me asking...)

I personally find Powys interesting since they are (or were?) a very small, family-owned, independent book company, and they were(or are?) able to get writers to create stories for a prominent licensed product.

From what I understand, they have original titles by authors as well.
Lonemagpie = David McIntee. He wrote the good one.

In addition to the Space: 1999 line, Powys has also published two books based on The Prisoner (one in a tiny run of a few hundred copies that's virtually impossible to find). I have both, but haven't gotten around to reading them yet. They have also published one non-tie-in novel.

The owner of the company is also a musician, and his band/project have published a number of recordings through Powys.

I'm glad people are reading the 1999 books. It was fun to do.

Your book was fun to read. Thanks for writing it!

Ahhh....! So, he's Mr. McIntee...

Yes, I do recall Powys had some Prisoner novels as well....which I would also like to read someday. Of course, Daddy Todd, if you get to them before I do please post your recommendations on the boards so I can see which ones to zero in on...

Also, I think it's interesting that Powys published music under their own label as well. (They have control over their own stuff, which includes the novels. That's awesome).

Born For Adversity.

And in Trek, Indistinguishable From Magic, On The Spot and Reservoir Ferengi. Plus a ton of Dr Who...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

In less than a day I've breezed through 1/2 of Mission Gamma: Lesser Evil. Really enjoyable so far. I think this might be the best paced MG book, but... I wish it were a bit denser. In some places motivations seem very surface level. Still, I'm excited to plow through the rest tonight.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Mission Gamma: Lesser Evil late last night. I thought it was really good, but that at only 266 pages, the plot may have needed time to breathe a bit. It has the unenviable job of wrapping up Mission Gamma, setting up the plot of Unity, incorporating in Rising Son, and it did it quite well. But maybe getting it to 300 pages may have made it feel a little less rushed.

I'm about 4% into Genesis Force on the Kindle right now. Seems really short, despite it saying it's 405 pages. (I think every "page turn" on the kindle is a full page from the book, which is new to me as it's usually about 3 "page turns" per full book page.)

Caught up with DC's new Batwoman comic last night, reading the first six issues in one sitting.

I think DC might have an issue with that!

I admit to taking a personal interest in Kate ever since writing the "52" novelization a few years back. Good to see she's still thriving.

(Although the art in issue 6 wasn't up to the standards of the first story arc. I'm hoping this is just a temporary substitution and the original artist will be back shortly.)

I think the 2 artists will be alternating between Batwoman arcs.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Thanks to my e-reader, i'm going back to the TOS books, and starting with #1 The Motion Picture, i'm gonna be buying all the old TOS books, and reading them all. I'm currently on #2 The Entropy Effect.
Entropy Effect takes a while to get going but i'm about halfway through it, and really enjoying the story.

Ah, I see.

Alas, you can really see the difference.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Taking a break from Genesis Force for a bit to read Tomo: Friendship Through Fiction, a series of short stories about young adults in Japan. I just noticed that one of the stories is written by Alan Gratz, who is going to be writing the upcoming Starfleet Academy: The Assassination Game.
