Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished City of Bones yesterday. Found it rather meh, but I will probably eventually give the second book a try.

Right now I think I'll try the first Leven Thumps book. The covers and titles have made me curious - Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo??

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently reading the (so far, as expected, excellent!) Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Christopher L. Bennett. So far, my only concern is how to link to the (sure to be glowing) review in my signature with that huge title and the imposed character limit!

Speaking of which, I just published my review of William Leisner's superb The Shocks of Adversity.

Reading Peter David's Imzadi from the early 90's. Nice story of Riker and Troi and how they met. Some humerous exchanges between future Data and Riker as well. Overall a smooth easy read.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally, reading "Betrayal" by Lois Tilton (ST-DS9 #6) after reading 1 & 2 Esdras (Apocrypha), rereading "Hand Me Another Brick" by Charles R. Swindoll, and "A Handbook of Norse Mythology" (translated by Crowell) by Karl Mortensen (1898, 1913). And, I did finish reading "Directive 51" by John Barnes (2010) which moved better towards the end of the book. But, it is a trilogy and I do not think the third book is out yet. The author may wish to edit earlier works and self-publish or some such thing.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just got Christopher's A Choice of Futures and I've jumped right in. Only about 20 pages so far, and I'm absolutely loving it! I'd been waiting for this book with baited breathe. Can't wait to get all the way in

Same here. Downloaded it last night and read the first chapter or so before bed. I was a bit nervous because I'm not the biggest Enterprise fan, though I didn't hate it as some did. But Christopher drew me right in from the start!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just got a huge amount of Lovecraft /Cthulu stuff on Kindle and received a mint copy of DC Fontana's Questor Tapes paperback through the post, so either could be next.

I am curious if Questor works as a prequel to Immortal Coil and Persistence Of Memory, so that one I think...

Only by implication; since Questor is owned by Universal, he can't be explicitly referenced in a licensed Trek novel. But I've long considered The Questor Tapes to be part of my personal Trek continuity.

That will do for me !

It will help occupy me while I'm waiting for Amazon to send me my new Enterprise novel...which they say I won't get until around 23 July.

I just got a copy of The Questor Tapes on DVD from Amazon. It's one of those "Burn On Demand" (BOD...?) titles. All Roddenberry's failed '70's pilots except Spectre are now available like that.

I read The Witch of Blackbird Pond over the last couple days - very enjoyable. Not sure where I'm headed next.
