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 got Genesis II and Planet Earth in that format a while back. I haven't gotten Questor yet since I still have it on VHS, though I think the image quality is pretty poor.

Spectre's the only Roddenberry pilot movie I haven't seen. Although I gather I'm not missing much.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Took a break from my other reading to enjoy Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Christopher. Really liking it so far!

From there, it's back to The History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter. It's a fascinating look at the history of the concept of whiteness, of who's "white" and who "isn't," and how that list has changed over the centuries.

Then, I'm going to finish re-reading Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy by Christopher Hayes. A more brilliant analysis of the sickness of modern American culture, I have not seen.

After that, it's back to The Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carré , which I have to admit I'm having some trouble getting through. It's not as engaging as The Spy Who Came in From the Cold or Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy so far. But by gosh, I will get through this and make my way through the conclusion to the Karla trilogy, Smiley's People.

From there, I'm not sure whether to read Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield by Jeremy Scahill or Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Star Trek: The Folded World by Jeff Mariotte the other day.

I then read the Supernatural comic trade paperback, Beginning's End.

Today I started Stargate SG-1: Relativity by James Swallow.

Just started Forgotten History - I really liked Watching the Clock, so this was an easy choice for next book to get from the library. Very enjoyable so far

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of Christopher L. Bennett's Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures. Very much enjoyed that one!

Reading two books at the moment: The Duchess Ranch of Old John Ware by James Davidge and Bob Prodor, and Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta by Aritha van Herk.

My memories of Spectre are pretty hazy. It didn't impress me much when it aired -- I think I was 17 at the time. I have the novelization, but as with something like 10,000 other books in my collection, I've never gotten around to reading it.

Picked up an old movie tie-in edition of LOGAN'S RUN at a used bookstore the other day (for only two bucks!). Looking forward to reading it again for the first time in decades.
