Just started Pathways by Jeri Taylor. I've been looking forward to this book for awhile.

Hmmm. I've been tempted to pick up American Nations, but I respect your opinion enough that this is making me re-consider that... Plus, I suspect it might be a nice complement to my having just seen Django Unchained last night, so issues of race relations are on my mind.

Still have the last third of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy before I need to make that decision!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I started reading Starfleet year one by Micheal Jan Friedman.I certainly like the story starting near the end of the Romulan war. It's the first chapter in this novel.I've really enjoyed reading this book so far.The rivilary between the military men and Scientist when it comes to making changes to the technology of the first Daedalus ship. And who will command the first ship in the newly formed Starfleet and the beginning of the Federation of planets coming together to hanner out it's charter of rights for all Fedreation citizens.

It's funny you mention the LeCarre novels - those are next on my list after I finish the Vorkosigan series

Awesome! I'd recommend starting with The Spy Who Came in From the Cold. It's so good!

^Huzzah for Leverage novels. I hope the line can continue even though the show isn't...

Right now, I'm about 2/3 through Precipice. Should have it done in the next day or so. After that, I'm not sure what I'm gonna read next. The new Timothy Zahn Star Wars novel, Allegiance in Exile, or Dan Abnett's Doctor Who novel.

I started "Balance of Nature" by Heather Jarman today. And after I finish, I'll return to "Slings and Arrows" (I've read only Book 1 so far).

I'm slowly making my way through Persistence of Memory. I'm enjoying it, just not finding a whole lot of reading time lately. I just hit the "gulp moment" and I have to say, I didn't see that coming!

I have studied the data. I'm ready for the exam, Shell... um, Sir.

I liked the book very much. Not only the story was very interesting and the Nasat world and culture interesting, but there was something very personal for me in P8 Blue

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished "The Joy Machine" by James Gunn and it was much better than I expected as my memory of "Once Upon a Planet" (TAS) interfered a bit. Science fiction is mentioned in the book on page 62. No future for science fiction but rather science reality?

That person with the Brazilian flag may wish to know I read "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" (translated by Ramos) by Paulo Freire (30th anniversary edition) and found it very good for a treatise on Marxist revolutionary education.

I am finishing watching Deep Space Nine season five for the first time. Just started reading the series too. Did "Emissary" (DS9 #1) and "The Siege" (DS9 #2) and am currently reading "Bloodletter" (DS9 #3). All quite good.

I am currently reading Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship, and really quite enjoying it so far with about 130 pages into it.
