Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently reading all the Marvel Cinematic Universe comics, since I got one month of Marvel Comic Unlimited for Christmas. Really liking the Captain America prequel comic right now.

^Nice review. One thing: The Wounded Sky is a lot more than reminiscent of "Where No One Has Gone Before" -- it's the direct basis for the episode. Duane and Michael Reaves's original script draft was much closer to the novel, but it was changed enormously in rewrites, with only one or two of their lines remaining in the final episode.
Thanks! That's really interesting. I'd love to see that original draft!

Finished reading Deadly Heat by "Richard Castle." For the record, there are some none-too-subtle Firefly references, including a pair of detectives named Malcom and Reynolds . . . .

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Still ploughing through (and loving) the Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire novels. About 80% through the fourth book (A Storm Of Swords part 2) so am just over half way through what has been published so far.

Haven't even had the urge to pick up any Treklit recently. I think it's a combination of burnout caused by the recent TOS marathon and just enjoying something really different.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished listening to the Audible version of Kill the Dead by Richard Kadrey, the 2nd Sandman Slim novel. The voice of the main character makes these books great for listening to. I haven't listened to that many audio books but this one makes me want to move on to the next in the series.

I also finished reading Atomsk by Carmichael Smith, also known as Cordwainer Smith. This was an early spy thriller written before he started publishing his science fiction. It had an extremely skillful agent but with out the toys a Bond type agent would have. There are also some Psych Warfare trappings which isn't surprising considering the authors real life background and experience. A fun quick read.

Reading some Pratchett at the moment, finished Mort a few days and reading Hogfather now. I loved the tv-movies of Hogfather and The Color Magic, and my girlfriend loves Pratchett, so I'm giving it a shot. After Hogfather, I'll be trying a few of the Witches novels. My girlfriend was Granny Weatherwax in a play of Maskerade a few years back, and I've dying to try the novel.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started Night Film by Marisha Pessl, which appears to be a noirish thriller about a disgraced journalist investigating the mysterious suicide of the daughter of reclusive cult horror-movie director. I'm finding it pretty compelling so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Got several Trek books for Christmas! I've finished Watching the Clock and The Poisoned Chalice and am currently reading Mere Anarchy.

For non-Trek books, I recently finished The Innocent and The Hit by David Baldacci.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Starting off the year just like last year, reading an old school Trek novel. Last year, Dwellers in the Crucible. This year, Time for Yesterday. Not really feeling it. It's one of those novels where our heroes seem to spend a lot of time on a primitive planet trying to resolve some crisis. Just not my favorite trope. There's at least a hundred pages of them on some planet with Zar doing political stuff, 30 pages of solving the problem with the Guardian then it looks like we're back to the Zar's home world to save the time stream and maybe keep him alive.

Looks like I'm going to have to order Peaceable Kingdoms since it seems this is one of those months where the local store just doesn't order this months book.

Peaceable Kingdoms at the moment.

Before that, I was reading Executive Actions by Gary Grossman.
