Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I have considered buying one of those big massive book lots off ebay too to fill in the gaps. It's probably a matter of time before I break down and do it, it's very tempting, you can usually find them at pretty reasonable prices. I have a lot of newer books I haven't read yet though that I'm very excited to read, and the more older books I buy the longer it's going to take me to get to the new books, but I can always go back and get those older books laer.

I finished up the second Wolverine & The X-Men collection last night.
I posted my thoughts over in my Comic Book Thread.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read The Stuff of Dreams by our very own James Swallow. Fast paced and entertaining. Started on Rough Beasts of Empire by David R. George III. Also still working on The Abominable by Dan Simmons. It's tedious.

Just got the TV tie-in edition of The Witches of East End, although I probably won't be able to start reading it until next month. 'Cause . . . deadlines!

Went through Conan: The Blood-Stained Crown And Other Stories, by Kurt Busiek and various artists, yesterday. It was good fun - the first story in the collection was actually pretty moving, all of them are good, and the art is very nice throughout.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of James Swallow's The Fall: The Poisoned Chalice. I thought I had this whole "Best Trek book of 2013" thing figured out. Now, I'm not so sure.

Currently reading Apocalypse for Beginners by Nicolas Dickner and loving it!

Have you been watching the show? I have been, and I've been enjoying it so far. It's not the best paranormal show like it on TV, but it's still enjoyable.

As for what I'm reading, I decided to go back the Urban Fantasy anthology, Dark and Stormy Knights after setting it aside a few months ago. That's one of the advantages to anthologies, you can read story or a few here and there without worrying about forgetting what was going on.
I figured I'd be getting tired of UF by now, but I still can't get enough.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely getting a kick out of the show . . . especially Ingrid and Aunt Wendy. Which is what inspired me to track down a copy of the original novel, which I was unfamiliar with before.

Haven't had a chance to crack it open yet, although I can see the light at the end of my deadlines . . ..

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished reading Star Trek 8 by James Blish which was an interesting collection of Original Series episode adaptations.

Was interesting seeing one of the original books written for Trek.

Anyway if anyone is interested they can read my review here.
