Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read "The Oresteia" (trilogy) by Aeschylus (reread actually) then read "On the Soul" and "Categories" by Aristotle. Must return to ST for a breath of escape. Perhaps "The Rings of Time" by Greg Cox would be nice next on my e-reader. Sooo many choices.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm currently reading TOS "Serpents in the Garden" about halfway through. Really liking it so far. Also getting back into my re-read of the post-Nemesis stuff, even though I had started with the A Time to,,, series. I had read the first two books, but then got into a big star wars reading mood at the time. I'm finally back in my trek reading mood.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The other day I finished the Riker story from Star Trek: Tales from the Captain's Table.

Today I listened to the Torchwood audio drama The Lost Files: Submission.

I'm now reading "Darkness," the second/Picard story from Star Trek: Tales from the Captain's Table.

I'm reading Startrek Ds9 Warped by J.K. Jeter this isn't one of my favorite ds9 books. This one has taken me along time to finish.

Is Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan a good book?
I'm hearing that the ending is disappointing

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I picked up a few things at a used-book sale to benefit the library, including an Alfred Bester anthology called The Dark Side of the Earth, which has a freaky (and slightly NSFW) cover image:

http://www.isfdb.org/wiki/images/e/e7/DRKSDOTE1970.jpg

It's mostly rather short stories tending toward humor and wordplay -- as the title suggests, SF/fantasy set on Earth and usually the present or near future. They're fun, with some imaginative ideas, but with very 1950s gender values.

I also got a copy of Bester's The Demolished Man that must've been released around the same time, since it has the same cover artist and title font. I knew that I already had a copy of either TDM or The Stars My Destination, and they had both for sale, but I wasn't entirely sure which one I already had. Fortunately I correctly remembered that it was TSMD.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The other day I finished "Darkness" from Star Trek: Tales from the Captain's Table.

Yesterday I listened to the Torchwood audio drama, "House of the Dead."

I then read the Shelby story from Star Trek: Tales from the Captain's Table, "Pain Management" by Peter David.

I'm now reading the first story in Torchwood: Consequences, "The Baby Farmers" by David Llewellyn.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm starting The Ashes Of Eden this evening. I've read a few of the Shatnerverse books, but never the first. I'm in the mood for some Reeves-Stevens so I thought this would be a quick fix.

I finished Three in the wee hour this morning. I think I'll read Monument 14: Savage Drift next.

I started the third (digital) TBP of Brian Azzarello's Wonder Woman series. I read through the zero issue already, and it was pretty fun.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished "Rings of Time" by Greg Cox (2012) rather quickly as it was good reading then I started "The Tempest" by Susan Wright (1997, DS9 #19) and am now one-third of the way through. Also read (twice) "On Interpretation" by Aristotle. I might even one day finish all of Aristotle's Organon and even better appreciate logic. Is it illogical not to experience and train one's emotions? What would Surak say? ... Perhaps semiotics is more useful than gut feelings? Perhaps there is a thinking parallel to gut feelings which is more suitable to solving problems and helping people. More than another form of ANOVA extrapolated into the future. Perhaps not.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Still bouncing back and forth between Star Trek and Star Wars novels. My last book was finishing up the remaining unread short stories from Tales from the Empire. Now I'm about halfway through Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures and absolutely loving it. Up next is I, Jedi.
