The other day I finished Stargate SG-1: Valhalla by Tim Waggoner.

I'm now reading the Mass Effect comic Evolution by Mac Walters, John Jackson Miller & Omar Francia.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The Hunter by Richard Stark, who of course was really a psudonymous Donald E Westlake wasn't too bad. First of the Parker novels, and filmed as both Point Blank and Payback, it's short and snappy. Somewhat uncomfortable in places, given the amount of woman-punching that goes on in it, so I can't say I enjoyed it that much, but it's a notable step in the development of hardboiled crime, and the character of Parker certainly is memorable. If the series that it so nicely spawned is less misogynistic it'll be worth reading, but I suspect it's a product of its time...

If you can, do check out Darwyn Cooke's graphic novel adaptations of The Hunter, The Outfit, The Score and Slayground. Beautiful books and some really smart adaptations.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Still trudging through Children of the Storm. Enjoying it, but not getting the time to read these past few weeks.

I did knock out Doctor Who: Time Trips: Handful of Stardust. Light, fun, a neat little ending. Not the best story in this line of eBook novellas and noticeably the shortest, but I liked the focus on Peri.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I read 100 issues of The Walking Dead and 8 issues of Saga.

I'm still trying to finish The Abominable by Dan Simmons, but the technical terms make me want to scream.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished reading the Star Trek Sce/Ds9 Crossover Cold Fusion I've been wanting to read this story for a long time .I really liked Keith's story with Nog showing just the Da Vinci crew Just how good an engineer he is thanks to his time working with Chief Miles O'Brien .And spending time on Empok Nor.Just because he was a Ferengi doesn't mean he couldn't do his job and the prejudice some of the Starfleeet crew have against the Ferengi was handled really well in this story.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of Christopher L. Bennett's Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel.

Currently reading Deep Space Nine: Rising Son by S.D. Perry, and Without Their Permission by Alexis Ohanien. I'm really loving Ohanien's style! A very accessible book.

Thanks, glad you liked it! I'm one of the (sometimes seemingly-few) people who really enjoyed Enterprise, and I love that you've breathed new life into it. I'm definitely enjoying this series, and really anticipating future installments!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished out Children of the Storm. Really good. I enjoyed learning about the Demeter crew and Phinn was pretty interesting as a character. A good resolution two, it's nice seeing Voyager save the day but have another crew partly solve the problem too.

Now onto DTI: Forgotten History. Just got through the prologue and I'm pretty intrigued about where it's going.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The last few weeks have left me almost no time for reading, but I did fit in Rising Son and Unity on a couple of long train journeys.

I liked them both, nice to see that old dangling TNG plot thread being picked up.
