Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

So, just finished Brinkmanship. A fairly quick read, and pretty enjoyable, if eminently frustrating, as I'm sure was the point. I haven't read Una's other novels yet, just The Lotus Flower novella, which I truly did enjoy back when it came out. I'll put Hollow Men and The Never-Ending Sacrifice on the "to read" list.

The anthropological perspective in this book was quite fascinating, and made me appreciate the characterization of the Tzenkethi in the novelverse more than I previously had. Let me reiterate, just to forestall any possible argument, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the Pocket Books concept of the Tzenkethi. It's just not how I had been mentally picturing them in the years since "The Adversary," so it's something to which I've had to adjust.

The Venetans, on the other hand, I like, quite a lot. It's also the first novel I've read with Glinn Dygan. I like him a lot, too.

Now... should I start The Rings of Time, or Persistence of Memory?

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Once again, I did some skipping ahead and read Silent Weapons. That was exciting!

Next, I'll probably read Resident Evil: Underworld and then Jeri Taylor's Mosaic.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review for the final novel in the Errand of Fury trilogy, Sacrifices of War by Kevin Ryan.

Yesterday, I read the first story in the SCE series, The Belly of the Beast by Dean Wesley Smith. I'm currently going back to an oldie, but one that I haven't read, so it's new to me! Star Trek #20: The Vulcan Academy Murders by Jean Lorrah.

I'm reading Voyager's Ragnarok. Not bad at all. I couldn't put it down last night.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I had started the Discworld book Men at Arms, but after a handful of pages I changed my mind and switched over to the Typhon Pact novella, The Struggle Within. I'm about 30ish pages into and so far it's been pretty good.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm still halfway in DS9's Time's Enemy and can't wait to finish it to go over to Voyager's The Final Fury.

I like the demonic alien theme of the Furies and the Fek'Ihri (from STO) I also bought Kahless, because it ties in to Klingon mythology, specifically its Heroic Age. It also meshes well with my last universtiy read, Beowulf as part of the "Of Monsters and Men" lecture (unrelated to the popular song, though it will feature in class ).

I just picked up the last of the 'Lost Years' novels, Recovery, by J.M. Dillard. I'm only at the beginning, but I'm liking it so far
