-Star Trek: The Next Generation IDW Omnibus: it certainly is... big. Nearly 500 pages. I've read the first 50 so far, and, while the quality so far is varying, I'm enjoying it, and am looking forward, in particular, to The Last Generation. I do wish the book was a bit larger, physically; the comics feel a bit cramped.
This is the first I've heard of this one. Does anybody have a link for it? I did an Amazon search, and there's nothing.

Edit: Never mind. I found it.

All the stories have been available separately as trade collections, in the same page dimensions as each comic mini-series.

I don't quite understand what you're saying here. Do you mean
a) that the comics always appeared on pages this small? or
b) if I want roomier pages on which to view the comics, I should purchase the trade collections?

Heh, I figured. That's a shame, because I feel like these could've been a really fun, immersive visual experience. But now it's kinda... cramped. Oh well.

I did indeed get The Body Electric; my thoughts are in the review thread.

I also made my way to a major used bookstore in my area, and picked up Vulcan's Heart and the third Crucible book, mainly because they were good deals. Am setting aside Crucible until I get books one and two, but I've started on Heart and am really liking it! For a roughly fifteen-year-old novel, I've been surprised at how many continuity nods there are, both to the TV series and to later novels. (Of course, its the later novels who referenced Heart, but the end result is the same for me as a reader.)

I have few vices in life, but one of them is Trek, so I do tend to splurge... (though, actually, not really, since a lot of what I buy are older, out-of-print used books; I get new books relatively sparingly these days.)

Cool! Was just informed by email that Tony Daniel's TOS novel, "Devil's Bargain", has arrived Down Under and is awaiting my visit to Galaxy Bookshop.

Looks pretty much the same as when I was there last month, which is pretty lacking to how it used to look.

Until some when last year, (between May and Feb) they had all the Trek Books spread across three bays of tall book cases.

They now, as you've shown have they spread across two bays of a half height bookcase, pretty much cutting their Trek selection in half.

But, yeah, you are right in that there are quiet a few new releases mixed in with older titles.

I trust you're enjoying your trip to England and the snows not affected your trip too much. Where else in Blighty are you visiting?

Thanks. A few days of London "snow flurries". Hoping to do a few day trips from here, then off to Paris, Marseille, Nice, back to UK for Glasgow and surrounds.

This is my first trip to UK, but there's so much to take in just in London itself, I haven't really investigated all the places that can be done as day trips yet.
