Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Last real books I've read were the DTI books by CLB. Both were awesome. I'm now caught up with the 24th century. Well, as far as the dead tree books go. I'm toying with the idea of getting Slings and Arrows and the final SCE stories in e-book form even though I feel like they are price gouging on those.

I've also been blasting through the old novelizations while my wife is watching stuff I don't care about on TV. I think I talked about the Voyager books earlier, now on to Enterprise. I've finished up Broken Bow and most of the way through Shockwave. Totally inconsequential.

Next up is Cast No Shadow. The last book I need to get caught up with the Trek Lit reading order flow chart. James Swallow also wrote Day of the Vipers, which I think is a freaking masterpiece, so I have high expectations for this.

But I don't know if it's impressive in a good way or a bad way. I think I had to read about a dozen novels in the last couple months to get caught up.

Finished the Destiny trilogy yesterday, loved it, definitely lives up to all the hype. Taking a break from Trek lit for a while. Just started Cosmonaut Keep, first book in the Engines of Light series by Ken Macleod.

You may enjoy, Zero Sum Game, by David Mack. The book has Bashir teaming with Sarina Douglas on a secret mission to Breen space.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Almost done Persistence of Memory. It's been a busy couple of days, but I did manage to finally read a couple issues in my stack of comics that's been sitting here untouched for the better part of a month.

Anyhow, I just saw Plagues of Night, Raise the Dawn and Brinkmanship advertised as an ebook omnibus called The Khitomer Accords Saga. Seems like an odd and most-decidedly uninspired title for such a collection, honestly.

I think something like Stuff Blows Up and Then Everyone Gets Mad would be more apropos.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

1222 by Anne Holt - Not a bad Norwegian Agatha Christie homage. Mostly fun, but with a couple of niggles that are probably down to it being a translation (for example, a vital clue is over what someone said being misheard, but in English the two phrases are far too different, unlike, I presume, their Norwegian originals) and the fact that it's actually the 8th book in a series, which somebody decided should be the first in English... There is some soapboxing that's irritating, and the last page implication would have been silly in 2007, and is more silly in 2012...

Still, despite that, a fairly entertaining little romp, and I'd be curious to read earlier books in the series.

Not sure what's next - torn between two or three options...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Star Trek: Deep Space 9: Invasion! Book 3 of 4: Time's Enemy. Even by today's standards this 90s book has been a thrill ride, with the characterisation spot on. Also, it was full of surprises and the solution only became apparent sufficiently late.

I wonder what happened to the ancient Defiant? I think the epilogue provides the clue that it ceased to exist but I'm not sure.

Now on to Book 4: The Final Fury!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Star Wars: Shadow Games today. Not bad. It was nice to have a full Dash Rendar story again, and I'm enjoying watching the events leading up to A New Hope all coming together.

Also today I bought (and have now started reading) the first in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary eBook series, A Big Hand for the Doctor by Eoin Colfer. It's very short and I expect to be finished with it by bedtime.

So tomorrow I expect to be starting on the last pre-Episode IV novel on my list, Death Star.
