Yeah, TKJ doesn't serve Barbara well, although her later emergence as Oracle did a lot to redeem that. (Unfortunately that's now been retconned away and she's Batgirl again.)

I guess one way of looking at it is that it shows how brutal and nihilistic the Joker is, that he could take this strong, dynamic character and treat her like a mere object. That's pretty much how he treats everyone, just as fodder for his "jokes."

The Soldiers of Fear is one of my favourite TNG Trek novels. It's such a gripping read; I've read it twice and still want to keep re-reading it. Have you read the DS9 or VOY Invasion novels yet?

Yes I've read them.Time's enemy is one of my all time favorite ds9 books.I've also read the invasion Voyager novel a long time ago. I decided awhile back to go back and read some of the older Startrek miniseries novels .I haven't read in a long time including the Captain's table miniseries.

Debating between Ice Hunt or Deep Fathom, both by James Rollins. Not sure which one to read first.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just recently read NF: Books 1 - 4 (omnibus e-book) by Peter David and have now very appropriately read "End Game" (Bk. 4). Got "Forgotten History" by CLB and may read it very soon. Still reading "City of God" by Augustine and "Crime and Punishment" by Dostoyevsky. My next ST may be an older TOS (such as "Deep Domain" I guess by Weinstein) or perhaps some of the new releases or perhaps NF: 5 "Martyr" or maybe even begin the SCE books. There is much to choose from.

Over the last week or two read A Clash of Kings (GRRM), Carte Blanche (Deaver) and a Dr Who NSA - not sure what to read next... Possibly some nonfiction...

Was that your first time through Carte Blanche? What did you think?

Apparently it wasn't a commercial success, as the Fleming estate has hired a different writer to pen the next Bond book, which will apparently be in continuity with the original Fleming books, taking place in the late '60's. Bummer. I loved Deaver's take, and the "Steel Cartridge" threads will now never get resolution. Bummer. Oh, I guess I already said that.
