Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently reading "Three Day Road" by Joseph Boyden (2005) which is one of the novels used for Grade 12 here in Canada. Shall get back to "Bloodletter" (DS9) by K. W. Jeter very soon I hope. Currently also going through Season 6 of DS9. The "Far Beyond the Stars" about science fiction was especially good.

"Dracula" by Bram Stoker was the original on what "Zero Dark Thirty" was based. A bunch of white middle class males and a token female go to the edge of civilization to destroy a monster. Popular genre and thoroughly enjoyable.

Course of Attack by Gene DeWeese. I'm about half-way through so far, and enjoying it.

It tells the story of the Enterprise being transported to a distant galaxy and getting caught up in a local conflict.

Yes sorry, I keep getting mixed up between Chain of Attack, Course of Attack, Chain of Command, Change of Attack, Change of Command.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished reading a Tos novel From The Depths By Victor Milan. It's an exciting story that took unexpected twists and turns with certain characters that were totally suprising to me..I read this book in a day .I really enjoyed reading this book. I started rereading Enterprise To Brave the Storm.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up the first volume of the new Wonder Woman comic book series. I posted my thoughts on Shelfari:

This was my first WW comic and I loved it. It had a great lead in Diana, she had a really cool group of characters around her, and Hera was a great villain. I'm a huge fan of ancient mythology, and I really liked this version of the Greek Gods. I loved the art, especially the designs for the Gods, they were very unique.
Since I finished that I also went ahead and start the first novel in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones. I'm mainly reading it now to get ready for the movie, but I've been planning on reading it since before I knew about the movie.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently Reading:
VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer
Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare
Metamorphoses by Ovid
Dark Mirror by Diane Duane
The Destroyer: Number Two by Warren Murphy
A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin

Over the last week, I finished:
TOS: The Weight of Worlds by Greg Cox
TOS: Allegiance in Exile by David R. George III
Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare
The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare
Shadows on the Sun by Michael Jan Friedman
War Drums (TNG #23) by John Vornholt
Gateways Book 1: One Small Step (and also One Giant Leap from What Lay Beyond) by Susan Wright

I read Dark Mirror for the first time when it was published in 1993, before DS9 revisited the Mirror Universe. I think it's pretty safe to say that this book has been thoroughly contradicted by the DS9 Mirror Universe episodes but it's still an enjoyable re-read so far.

One Small Step and One Giant Leap are direct sequels to the TOS episode "That Which Survives". Before this, the only other thing I'd read from Susan Wright was the Dark Passions duology. I liked OSS/OGL quite a bit better, although there were some mistakes and the Klingons in the book were strictly cardboard villians who were not really important to the story and could have been dispensed with.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished TNG: Slings and Arrows book 3. My favorite so far, I really liked the Deanna/Lwaxana story following up her story on DS9.

In fact one thing Im enjoying about this series of ebooks is how closely the authors and the editor kept it tight with the continuity of DS9 season 4.

I also loved that we got some story behind Geordi's abrupt change from VISOR to ocular implants between movies.

Getting ready to read book 4, it says in the overview about Beverly having to adapt to having an EMH but there was one already on the Enterprise E in book 3 talking to Geordi and Beverly.

I havent read 4 yet so maybe I have no reason to be confused lol

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm working my way through MWB's Unspoken Truths. Just about 250 pages in. I'm enjoying the first contact sequence storyline but I'm finding that I don't really care for the Hellguard flashbacks. I'm still waiting for the whole Tolek angle to reassert itself in the story.
