I generally have two or three books stashed at different places to read at different times during the day...

Right now, I'm reading:

The IDIC Epidemic (TOS #38) by Jean Lorrah,
Probe by Margaret Wander Bonanno,
and Titan: Over a Torrent Sea by Christopher L. Bennett

Over the weekend, I finished up
A Singular Destiny and Demons of Air and Darkness (Gateways Book 4) both by Keith R. A. DeCandido.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I think Dune may actually be longer than Dracula. I don't have any actual stats to back that up, but that's what my gut tells me.

And believe me, if anyone thinks Dracula is representative of the lengths Victorian literature is capable of...they've never read the book I'm finishing up (see signature)!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I needed to catch up on TNG and TP so I could start David Mack's TNG trilogy so on a business trip last week that involved 2 cross country flights and some nights alone in a hotel I read Indistinguishable From Magic, Plagues of Night, Raise the Dawn and Brinkmanship. I figure I'm caught up enough in that it doesn't matter I'm behind 2 Voyager books and the last Titan book.

I had taken along Rise Like Lions and barely started that when I decided I had had enough Trek for the trip and switched to Osama by Lavie Tidhar.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I recently read Voyager The Eternal tide and really enjoyed it and how they portray the voyager characters in this book.I've been enjoying reading alot of the older Tos books.I'm almost reading Chain of attack. I plan on reading Firestorm by L.A.Graff.I really like their TOS books. Also the older TNG books where Data is in them.

Finished Wildfire by David Mack yesterday.

Currently, Hostile Waters by Gordon Kent. After that, possibly back to the SCE, Dune (again), one of the Honorverse series (it's been a while) or Eternity Base by Bob Mayer

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished reading The Last Days of Krypton last night.
My review from Shelfari wrote:
I just finished reading this, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't anything mind blowing, but it was very enjoyable. I especially liked the arc following the rise of Commissioner/General Zod. My only real issue I had was the lack of Supergirl/Kara Zor-El. She's a big part of Superman's story, and her parents were two of the books main characters, so her absence was especially noticeable.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Started on an old TOS novel the other day, Ishmael by Barbara Hambly. Not too bad so far, although not the usual type of story I go for.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished with Double Helix 6 - The First Virtue. A swift read, though Beverly Crusher on the cover was a bit of an overstatement of her involvement.

Tomorrow, I'll begin Distant Shores. Looking forward to CLB's "Brief Candle" which features... the Markonians.

Still early into Invasion! 1 - First Strike. Usually I don't read Diane Carey but I'd like to read the whole crossover series. The aliens (Furies) pleasantly reminded me of the Fek'Ihri Horde from STO based on the blurbs. I'm looking forward to see how far the similarity goes.

But I was already annoyed by a ground battle description. So, there are only male security officers. No women, no aliens. On the 23rd century Starfleet flagship. And the "Spock is the first and only Vulcan in Starfleet" reared its ugly head. This was already wrong when TOS was still on the airwaves.
