Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I have no idea what to read next. Several series I need to finish, several new books I want to read, and a huge backlog of Star Trek books.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I recently reviewed Marc Cushman's These Are The Voyages: TOS, Season 1 for TrekCore.com. I've also posted the review at my own site, Treklit.com.

Right now, I'm reading The Fall: Revelation and Dust by David R. George III and The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm close to the end of the 3rd book of the Belisarius series by Eric Flint.

Next up is either Only Superhuman by Christopher L Bennett or Revelation and Dust by David R George.

After that, it's back to Eric Flint.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I bought or ordered the "Enterprise" TV series in order to prepare for reading "A Choice of Futures" by CLB. Haven't purchased the book yet. Still reading the numbered books in DS9 and about to start "Proud Helios" by Melissa Scott (I hope I got the author's name correct, the copyright pages give 1990 for copyright in the e-book version that I have but from Memory Alpha I see it is February 1995). I guess the 1990 is concept copyright with Paramount but they really should have copyright correct in the e-book. The cover page is not easily accessible either. Anyway, the book is ST-DS9 #9. It is nice to watch "Enterprise" TV series pretty well for the first time. Can appreciate some of the modern novels more adequately.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished the first two vanguard novels, and almost at the end of the third.Debating whether to press on with vanguard, which I'm really enjoying, or pause and read revelations and dust, as my preorder downloaded to the kindle on Tuesday, and I really want to read it. Ah, choices....

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Reading Under the Dome by Stephen King, then it's on to The Long War by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter.

Same here - I mean, there are books I'm reading for work purposes, such as a biography of Dr John Dee, but not sure what to read for relaxation next. Part of the problem is I want to pick something that's in a book small enough to stick in my pocket for wandering around, but all the recent stuff I fancy is in trade or hardback...

You're going to need considerably bigger pockets !

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished a numbered DS9 novel Wrath of the Prophets by the writing team of Friedman, David and Greenberger. Not bad and the first documented meeting of Ro Laren and Kira Nerys fits nicely into what is to come in the DS9 relaunch.

Starting A Choice of Catastrophes.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm actually reading Ex Machina for the first time. Found a copy at a used book store in Arizona this last spring. Started it yesterday.

That way I can then launch into The Fall and I should be able to read them straight through without any gaps.
