Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack. Loved it!

I just finished reading Fun House: A Family Tragicomic by Allison Bechdel. Highly recommended.

Currently reading an oldie: The Wounded Sky by Diane Duane.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I read "One Small Step" by Susan Wright (ST:GW #1) and then started "Chain Mail" by Diane Carey (ST:GW #2). I have three observations:
1. I may need to read the "New Earth" series first.
2. I got about 20% of the way through "Chain Mail" when I realized that the starship Challenger is named after a real world exemplar. Perhaps I am plain un-American or perhaps I had trained myself out of recalling the connection.
3. I noticed that Diane Carey has written in both series and may be doing some product promotion. This is okay and I purchased three of the New Earth e-books and already have the other three as hardcopies. Likewise with Gateways books.

Do not know if I should stop reading Gateways and read New Earth first. If I can read both this year, then I shall have done the required 30 ST books for this year as well as the past two years. Still have Plato to read too.

I guess I should see "Ender's Game" sometime soon too. Continuing to gradually go through the "Enterprise" TV series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished A Ceremony of Losses a couple of days ago. Really enjoyed it. How frustrating that its another month till the next book in the series!

In the meantime, I'm heading back to DS9 by starting Avatar, book one.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Last night I finished Star Trek: New Frontier: Missing in Action by Peter David.

Today I read "Dagon", a short story by H.P. Lovecraft.

Later I'm going to start Leverage: The Bestseller Job by Greg Cox.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Manifold: Time and Manifold: Space by Stephen Baxter. It's an understatement to say he's not the best character writer, but he can wax poetic about orbital mechanics and evolution on a universal scale and the possibilities inherent in the chemical composition of moon rock (etc) like nobody's business. As always, utterly intriguing if somewhat... inhuman reads.

Thought I'd give "A Good Day to Die" by KRAD a go.

I missed this particular series when it first came out, but I'm enjoying it so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm taking a break from Brink of Chaos to read Rapture by Phillip W. Simpson. I also read a children's book, A Guinea Pig Nativity by GPV. It's a cute book with guinea pigs in the roles of Mary, Joseph, angels, etc., of the Christmas story.

Hope you like it!

Trek trivia: I wrote that book right before The Weight of Worlds. In fact, as I recall, they overlapped a little.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Avatar, book one. Blasted through that one pretty quickly. Good start to the DS9 relaunch...felt very much like a continuation of the series. Having not read the DS9 books prior to the Typhon Pact era, it was nice to be properly introduced to the characters of Vaughan and Shar.
