Time for some autumn spookiness with MR James's ghost stories, and James Herbert's Secret Of Crickley Hall before the TV version airs.

Both of these are also work...

I'm currently reading Lee Bermejo's Batman: Noel hardcover, and I'm patiently awaiting my copy of Brinkmanship to arrive.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up the third story in Dark and Stormy Knights, and decided to set it aside in favor of the last ST: Mere Anarchy novella, It's Hour Come Round.

I started "Brinkmanship" last night. Didn't have much time, so I'm on page 30something, but it's already great

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished TOS Janus Gate book 3 Past Prologue by LA Graf.

Really enjoyed this trilogy. It was cool to see the back half of the main cast take alot of the spotlight giving Uhura, Sulu and Chekov really excellent material.
Especially Chekov it was cool to see his "new kid on the block" first away mission.

Up next is DS9 Mission Gamma book 4 Lesser Evil by Robert Simpson, (and not trying to give any spoilers but I was shocked at who died at the end of book 3!)

Just about every L.A. Graf TOS novel focuses heavily on those three.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished my re-read of The Hobbit and have moved on to a non-fiction book by Canadian author Stuart McLean called Welcome Home: Travels In Smalltown Canada. It doesn't sound exciting, but there are some truly fascinating stories here, told by one of my favourite storytellers.

I'm also reading the Bone prequel Tall Tales.

On the audiobook front, I just started The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes as read by Derek Jacobi. He's doing a great job so far, as I knew he would.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished VOY: The Eternal Tide and started TTN: Fallen Gods. I think I'll continue with Treklit and read TP: Brinkmanship next. Then move on to non-Trek stuff for a while, at least until all three of David Mack's TNG novels have been released. I want to read the entire trilogy at once.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Continuing my 24th century chronological reading, with TNG "Spartacus." Really good book, about an android race of beings, trying to win their freedom from their master biological race.
Also reading the TOS books in publication order, currently on "Ishmael." Really liking this one, where Spock is accidentally thrown back in time to 19th century Seattle, and has lost his memory. The klingons have traveled back in time along with Spock for some nefarious reason.

Ishmael is a fun book. I remember enjoying that one.

If you like Ishmael, you might want to check out the old TV series "Here Comes the Brides"--for reasons which will soon become obvious!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The Broken Universe by Paul Melko. It's the sequel to The Walls of the Universe, which I read last month and really enjoyed. Think of a slightly more complex Sliders with young adults, head-to-head pinball, and whether or not you're a 'singleton' or a 'dupe'.
