Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just read the excellent Star Trek Novel "The Final Reflection" by John M. Ford.

I thought it was superb and posted a review here if anyone is interested.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I started Star Wars: Crucible earlier this week and finished it a couple days ago. It was decent, though I'm still not fond of Troy Denning's need to have Jedi constantly glowing in the middle of a big fight. It seems rather silly.

I'm trying to figure out where to go next as I "return" to the SW EU. I quickly read through all of Legacy of the Force last year before getting caught up on and finishing Fate of the Jedi as it was released, so there are a lot of novels that came out after The Dark Nest Trilogy but before LOTF that I have yet to read.

At the moment I'm leaning toward Matthew Stover's Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, though John Jackson Miller's Kenobi is tempting as is Timothy Zahn's Scoundrels.

For some reason I'm not in the mood for prose at the moment so I've downloaded the new German non-fiction book Maximum Warp about the Star Trek novels (you can find some info here: http://www.thetrekcollective.com/201...star-trek.html).

Probably will start it later today.

Hmm. I'm a little puzzled, since I don't remember being interviewed for this book, but one of the chapters in the Titan section is an interview with me. Did they reprint an old interview from somewhere else?

I think they reused some interviews they did for earlier books bonus stuff and/or trekzone.de.

In your case they reused the German version of this interview. I would have thought that they had asked the interviewed authors if it is O.K. to reuse the old interviews ...

Currently reading Time Travelers Never Die, by Jack McDevitt

Kinda slow to start, but getting better now that time travel has actually been introduced.

I finished off Vanguard #5 Precipice last night and have started on book 6, Declassified. I've been loving this series. Too bad it has to end. Hopefully Seekers fills the impending void

I just stumbled onto two early tie-in novels at a yard sale:

"Walt Disney's ANNETTE and the Mystery at Smuggler's Cove."

"JANET LENNON at Camp Calamity"--an "Authorized TV Adventure" featuring the "Singing Star from the Lawrence Welk TV Show."

Who knew there were Lawrence Welk Show (!) tie-in novels? And an Annette Funicello mystery? Fascinating!
OMG! That is too funny.

Please let us know what you think of these two books after you've read them. Please start with the Janet Lennon book. That one has me stumped as to why anyone would write such.

Reading Star Trek: A Choice of Catatsrophes. (Its TOS)

My first Trelk novel in a long time. My friend got it for me (along with 4 others) while I was home on R&R. This is the first one I grabbed from my backpack on my way back into theater. So far, not bad, I'm about 2/3 of the way done.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Fringe: The Zodiac Paradox by Christa Faust last night.

I just now read the Xant story from New Frontier: No Limits, "Redemption" by Glenn Hauman & Lisa Sullivan.

I haven't yet decided what I'm going to read next.

What did you think of the Fringe book? I'm a big fan of the TV series, and the books have really intrigued me, especially the Walter/Bell one.

Good luck. That's... a bit of a clunker.
