Re: TNG: The Persistence of Memory by David Mack Review Thread (Spoile

Just ordered Immortal Coil myself. I'd missed a few until Destiny came out and have been (slowly) catching up with some of the older stuff too.

I'm just wondering now whether to wait till all three are out and read them (and Immortal coil) in one go or as they come.

I'll just tell y'all right now: Anyone who hasn't read Jeff Lang's TNG novel Immortal Coil should get their hands on a copy ASAP and read it before diving into the Cold Equations trilogy. I do my best to recap the important details from IC in the trilogy, but the entire trilogy is a direct sequel to Immortal Coil.

You have been duly advised.
Thanks for the info Dave I am starting this book today and I hope to be done on the 30th, so i can dive right in

Will it be impossible to read this trilogy without Immortal Coil??

Of course not, any more than it's impossible to watch "The Cage" without having seen the battle on Rigel VII. You're filled in on what you need to know. But Immortal Coil is certainly worth having as a companion piece to the trilogy.

^ What Christopher said. You can read my Cold Equations trilogy without having read Immortal Coil, as I recap the important details in the text, but I think it will resonate more profoundly for those who have read Jeff's novel.

Re: TNG: The Persistence of Memory by David Mack Review Thread (Spoile

Without giving the game away, I'm interested to know why it's a sequel to that novel? Was it interest on your part or an editorial suggestion? Or did the current trilogy come first and then realised aspects fit and made it a sequel (if that makes sense)?

Darn, I can't seem to find it for sale anymore (Immortal Coil that is). Pity, would have like to read it.

There are plenty of used copies available from Amazon, Alibris, and other online book vendors. Or you could try your local library.

I'm from the Netherlands, so while our libraries will have English sections, you won't find Star Trek in it I'm afraid.

^I just edited my post to include used-book links from Amazon and Alibris. Not sure if you can get those in the Netherlands.
