Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Full Circle and am already well into Unworthy. I've been trying to not so many Star Trek books in succession but I just can't help it. I was very impressed by the way the way Beyer managed to wrap up the first phase of the relaunch and get the ball rolling getting Project Full Circle launched and getting familiar crew together.

I found it weird that Irene Hansen pretended to be sick in Spirit Walk and then actually a deadly syndrome in Full Circle. And I'm getting a little tired of the Akoochimoya stuff, but I'm enjoying relaunch a lot.

Awesome series! Would love to see those authors work on another project like that together

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Nancy Springer's The Case of the Missing Marquess, the first book in her Enola Holmes mystery series for young readers.

Enola is Sherlock Holmes' sister -- and twenty years his junior. On her fourteenth birthday, her mother, sixty-four years old, vanishes from the family's ancestral estate. Enola informs her brothers in London, Mycroft and Sherlock, and they travel to the estate they haven't seen in a decade to unravel the mystery.

Then Enola discovers that Sherlock has atrocious interpersonal skills and Mycroft has plans for her, so she decides that she's going to make a run for it and solve the mystery herself.

Some of my enjoyment comes from knowing who Sherlock and Mycroft are from thirty years of reading (and even writing) Sherlock Holmes stories. Enola, even though she's their sister, doesn't have that benefit. To her, they are nothing more than strangers who share some history and a name.

Yes, it's a book for the junior high school crowd. Nonetheless, if you like Sherlock Holmes and plucky heroines, it's a hugely enjoyable book.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read a little of Joyland by Stephen King at the bookstore and was compelled to by it. The shat just hit the fan in Unworthy. I've read more books from May to now than I read in most years. Not having cable has been a blessing in disguise that's gotten me back in touch with my first love.

I finished New Frontier: Stone and Anvil yesterday.

I then read chapter 4 of Federation: The First 150 Years, "The Edge of Night: 2245-2290."

I'm now reading Psych: A Fatal Frame of Mind.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished editing an (untitled) urban fantasy, which I have put into production at Tor. Now I just need to schedule the darn thing and brainstorm titles with the author!

Untitled Urban Fantasy sounds good enough for me

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just read The Price of the Phoneix mostly out of curiosity as it seems to be a somewhat polarizing book. Up next, Cataylyst of Sorrows by one of my favorite Trek authors Margaret Wander Bonanno.

I suspect Marketing is going to want something less generic!

The current working title is NIGHTWISE (as in "streetwise"), but I'm not in love with it yet.

Meanwhile, I just started reading THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI by Helene Wecker,which I'm really enjoying so far. It's a period fantasy set in 1899 Manhattan . . .

Having watched TOS films 1-5 in the last week I finally started Captain's Table: War Dragons last night. Interesting premise jumping through three time periods as the story goes.
