Reading the DS9 novella from the Gateways: What Lay Beyond anthology. Then I'll be finishing up Agatha Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

I started reading Section 31 Cloak by S.D.Perry. I wish she'd write another StarTrek novel.I always enjoyed reading her books.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading The Shocks of Adversity by William Leisner - I'm finding it a bit difficult to get in to, but that may be down to the fact I'm on anti-biotics and feeling very foggy in the brain-area.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review for the first book in the A Time To... series, A Time to Be Born by John Vornholt. I actually read this years ago, but remembered next to nothing about it. It was this series more than anything that led me to start blogging about Trek books, if only to serve my own bad memory!

Right now I'm reading through The John Byrne Collection, a huge hardcover omnibus of his IDW Trek comics. Some of them I had read before, but the majority are new to me.

I actually traded in all my individual trade paperbacks of those comics to get the Hardcover. It's a beautiful collection and the stories are excellent. I'm particularly fond of Crew and Assignment: Earth, but all of them are great.

After finishing Destiny, I was left wanting to know more about the 24th Century after those events. So I went plunging into Losing the Peace. I'm about 60 or pages in and enjoying the reflections the characters are going through. I really can't say much of a plot for the novel has taken shape yet.

My plans are to read Over a Torrent Sea, Full Circle, and A Singular Destiny, as that seems like the chronological read order of events (I know the books came out in the reverse of that order!). Hopefully I can get through all of them before the month is out. I'd like to be onto the Typhon Pact material by August, because the blurbs about The Fall are super enticing. And I haven't been this close to being current on the books in a long, long time. (Probably since Avatar first came out!?)

I've decided to re-read A Singular Destiny again. I love this book, but it always makes me miss KRAD's contributions to Treklit. Come on Pocket editors! Ask him back already

Not really. The prologue of Over a Torrent Sea picks up just after Destiny, but the main body of the novel is set months later -- actually overlapping with Children of the Storm and ending just before The Eternal Tide.

A Singular Destiny is probably best read before either Torrent Sea or Full Circle, actually.

Glad you're enjoying it; some good books are coming your way

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Ive been chugging away with my 24th century reading order. Just about done with TNG: The Last Stand. After that, I might skip ahead and FINALLY read the Typhon Pact and Cold Equations books, to get caught up in time for The Fall.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just read the first chapter of Devil's Bargain by Tony Daniel. It's looking good so far. It's been a little while since I've read any Trek, so I thought I'd get back at it.

Yes, thanks for noticing. It's available for preorder now and comes out in about six weeks! I'm hoping that Trek readers who didn't go for the hardcover or the e-book or the audiobook might be more willing to give the paperback a try, since it's priced the same as a Trek novel.

For what it's worth, in six weeks, you will have made a sale.

Oh, and OT: I'm currently reading your Enterprise novel, Rise of the Federation. Good read so far.
