Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Infinite Crisis (I had stopped it when book 2 of Cold Equations came out). Definitely enjoyed it, but for a DC newbie like me there certainly where some "Who are those people?" moments.

Started the first book of Slings and Arrows today.

To be honest, even I had a few "Who?" moments when reading the original scripts. And I've been reading DC Comics since they were only twelve cents apiece.

Thank God for wikipedia and the official DC Encyclopedia.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Am reading "My Brother's Keeper" finished Book 1: Republic and currently reading Book 2: Constitution and soon to read Book 3 which I cannot recall the name of again. All by Michael Jan Friedman (1999 at least the first two are that year).

Interesting quote from second book: "As you know, Vulcans do not weep." (p. 23). It was nice to see it shared in a temporally appropriate manner.

As for non-fiction reading: I am attempting to go through "Policraticus" by John of Salisbury:
Books 1 - 3 with selections from 7 & 8 with English translation title: "The Frivolities of Courtiers and the Footprints of Philosophers" (transl. by Joseph B. Pike).
Books 4 - 6 with selections from 7 & 8 with English translation title: "The Statesman's Book" (transl. by John Dickinson).
I note that John of Salisbury was one of the better writers of letters. I wonder if J.R.R. Tolkien studied John of Salisbury and whether Hobbits' habits of writing letters and indeed his fantasy characters might have been enriched by characters from medieval times. Would John of Salisbury have survived well in the e-mail age?

That name you can't recall would be Enterprise.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Work's been insane this year (teaching 8th grade for the first time - phew!) and I haven't read anything since Fallen Gods. I'm incredibly excited for Christmas break, to catch up on Brinkmanship, The Eternal Tide, and Cold Equations.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Picked up a Kolchak novel, The Lost World, today. Not sure when I'll find time to read it, even though it's only about 175 pages long.

Currently working on Stargazer: Oblivion by Michael Jan Friedman. A HUGE step up from SGR: Three. Yech.

I love Guinan's musings on how she immediately recognizes Picard.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Thanks for the heads up about the elephant in the room. "Enterprise" how does one remember it? Of course, it is also a TV series that I shall have to see sometime. I am still going through Season 4 of DS9. Much else to do. Anyway, still reading "Constitution" and shall be reading "Enterprise" soon. My Brother's Keeper trilogy by Jan Michael Friedman (1999). Very enjoyable to revisit much material prior to the 5 year mission.
