Just finished Cat Daddy by Galaxy Jackson. Started reading Full Circle again so that I can finally read Worthy and Children of the Storm. Want to be caught up when the next Voyager book comes out.

I just finished Stephen King's 11/22/63. I picked it up from the library on Tuesday afternoon, began reading it yesterday morning, and that's how I've been spending my free time since then. I don't read a lot of King (horror isn't a genre that attracts me), but this -- utterly captivating. I have a perverse attachment to the 50s/60s (was raised on that music and television from the era), so the sheer amount of immersive detail King threw in would have thrilled me, even if the storytelling wasn't so compelling. There's a subtle shade of horror and anticipation throughout the book, and the ending...

Suffice it to say, I think it tops my list of King books. I wonder if Christopher has read it, given the time-travel angle.
I love Stephen King. I have not read that one yet. His body of work is so diverse I think that the label of horror novelist doesn't fit. he writes such interesting characters and stories. I really like Duma key. Have you read that one?

Just finished Forged in Fire, while in a waiting room. Not a bad book. It started out slow, picked up in the middle, and then ended slow. Overall a decent read.

Just started DRGIII's Plagues of Night, great beginning, cannot wait to see where it goes

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished re-reading Destiny: Mere Mortals by David Mack yesterday. A really great read, I certainly enjoyed this novel more than the first. Probably because you could really empathize with Hernandez and everything she went through during her 800+ years with the Caeliar. Top stuff.

A little break from Destiny now as I pick up the much respected Doctor's Orders by Diane Duane. I've never read it before, so you guys better be right.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Has anyone here read Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale? I've become curious about mermaid stories recently, and I love stories that play with fairy tales, myths, and legends, but I'm afraid this might be too romance novelly for me.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I feel like I'm entering a science fiction kick, and I've started it off with a couple of books from the library.

First is Pushing Ice by Alastair Reynolds, a book I'm finding to be quite a page-turner. I was pleased with Revelation Space when I read it a couple years ago and I've been meaning to return to him ever since. Maybe later this year I'll finish off that trilogy, though I also want to read House of Suns as well.

And there's The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Vol. 1, with a couple stories I've read before and others I'm familiar with from listening to the old radio show X Minus One. I'm skipping around in the book. So far my favourite has been, hands down, "The Cold Equations" by Tom Godwin.

I'm enjoying it so far. Bashir was one of my favorite characters on DS9, so it's nice to have a book that focuses primarily on him.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just picked up Forgotten History and Plagues of Night and am currently reading Forgotten History. The first DTI novel, Watching the Clock, has cemented itself as one of my all-time favorite pieces of Star Trek fiction, and I'm really enjoying Forgotten History even though I'm only a couple of chapters into it.

I also just finished re-reading Guardian of the Balance, the first book in Irene Radford's Merlin's Descendants series (which I would highly recommend, BTW).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished New Frontier: Once Burned earlier today. I had read it years ago, but remembered practically nothing about. I'm glad I re-read it, because it's very good.

Then I read the Supernatural comic, Origins. It's not that great, I didn't really care for the artwork, and the story wasn't that good, it just seemed..."off" I guess. There are some things from the show that it contradicts, or that the show later contradicted, like hellhounds being visible, Sam and Dean meeting Joe Harvelle when they actually met her for the first time in the show, and the comic suggesting something other than a Demon killed Mary. I enjoyed the Rising Son comic a lot better.

I'm now reading Starfleet Academy: The Gemini Agent.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Trill: Unjoined. Really enjoyed it. I thought it got a bit slow, some sequences could have been pushed together a bit. And while from a style point of view I liked the first chapter being out of sequence, it ultimately didn't really serve a story purpose. Moving onto to the Kira story from Tales from the Captain's Table and then Bajor: Fragments & Omens.

About to start Star Wars Fate of the Jedi: Abyss. So far the FOTJ series has been adequate. I really liked Outcast, but Omen was just a waste of pages. Mostly redundant of Outcast.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished: Time For Yesterday. I give it a 9/10.

Now, I'm continuing my ST novel read-through with Strangers From The Sky and the Khan/Spock/Voyage trilogy. (And possibly skipping ahead to read Plagues Of Night...)
