Reading the first in the Cold Equations trilogy. A real page-turner.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just purchased Dayton Ward's From History's Shadow(ebook). However, I am reading The Shocks of Adversity by William Leisner first, since I borrowed it from the library and it will have to go back.

I also just finished The Shift Omnibus by Hugh Howey. Good sci-fi author, the ebooks are cheaply priced and DRM-Free. You just can't go wrong there. Recommended.

I also recently read Spin by Robert Charles Wilson. Fantastic book.I think it won the Hugo award too.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've bounced around a bit lately; I read all the Mass Effect novels (rather shallow, but entertaining and nifty, excepting the infamous last one), I read Scott Westerfeld's two-novel Succession (wildly creative but dramatically a bit unsatisfying), and now I'm finishing up the Vorkosigan saga - three books left.

The Vorkosigan saga is absolutely utterly phenomenal; it's not precisely Star-Trekkian in theme or content, but anyone who enjoys long stories where people grow and change with memorable characters and interesting sci-fi conceits will love it.

Haven't read much Trek lately, I'm not too into the TOS glut and I'm not caught up on Enterprise, but I might read Leisner's Shocks of Adversity. I really liked his other two, and Shocks was well reviewed here.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I read the first "episode" of the Smallville Season 11 digital comic series. I posted a longer review over in the series thread in the SF&F forum, but I'll just summarize it here: I loved it.

Currently reading The eye of the world by Robert Jordan. I'm just over half way through and it's excellent.

The last book I finished reading was Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan. Quite superficial and sparse storyline but enjoyable nonetheless.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Over the last few days I read some stories from New Frontier: No Limits. I finished the Soleta story, "Revelations" by KRAD. I then read the Si Cwan and Selar stories, "Turning Point" by Josepha Sherman and "Q'uandary" by Terri Osborne. I'm now about to start the Burgoyne 172 story, "Oil and Water" by Robert T. Jeschonek.
