Pandora's star and then Judas unchained by Peter F Hamilton.
Large scale space opera done rather well IMO.

Yeah, that's really good stuff. The sequel Void trilogy is also excellent, though the ending is a bit hand-wave-y.

Over that last few days I read The Walking Dead, Volume 2: Miles Behind Us.

Up next is Star Trek: The Brave and the Bold by KRAD.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

FINALLY managed to slog through Consider Phlebas. Yeah, I don't think I'll be bothering with any more of his stuff. It was brutal, completely lacking in sympathetic or relate-able characters, and horribly anti-climactic. I only finished it out of stubbornness.

Revelation and Dust is next. I can't wait to read something pleasant again.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've been on a Vanguard binge lately, stopping only to read Revelations & Dust, and having finished the second story in Vanguard #6 Declassified, i've decided to put it aside for a day or two and try and catch up on my comicbook reading that has gone by the wayside for the last 2 weeks. Hopefully I can resist the urge!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished the Jake Sisko novel, Rising Son and jumped straight into Unity. The DS9 relaunch stuff has been really good and I'm looking forward to see if the storylines from Mission Gamma are concluded in a satisfying way.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Precipice this morning, and part way into the first story in Vanguard: Declassified. I liked the way the characters developed in Precipice, some of them went in interesting directions. Holding off on Revelations and Dust until I finish Vanguard, by which time The Crimson Shadow will probably be out, so I'll read them both back to back.

Picked up DOOMWAR, a Dr. Doom graphic novel, at a book signing for Jonathan Maberry, who autographed it for me.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Over the weekend, finished up:
Valhalla (DS9 #10) by Nathan Archer - really liked the story, although you can tell (as he states in Voyages of the Imagination) that it was written and intended to be published earlier in the series' run. The book was originally written before the introduction of the Defiant so they had to shoehorn in some dialogue explaining why it wasn't present in the book.

Caretaker novelization (VOY #1) by L.A. Graf

Currently reading:

Warped by K. W. Jeter
Gone for Soldiers by Jeff Shaara

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up TNG#8 The Captain's Honor by David and Daniel Dvorkin. I have to say that this one was awful to me. The starship full of Roman's thing was a tad bit ridiculous to me. Tough to get into.

I am halfway through Andrew Robinson's A Stich In Time and it has been a fantastic read so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I know some here warned me, but I'm really struggling with Double Helix: Infection. The constant internal thoughts, then repeating them in prose, or just breaking up the action/dialogue to get someone's own opinion. I get what the author is going for, but it really doesn't work.

Beverly really doesn't sound like Beverly either.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I read "City of Bones" by Cassandra Clare after seeing the movie for opening matinee. I read "The Laertian Gamble" by Robert Sheckley (ST-DS9 #12) then finished totally reading my Authorized King James Bible (over 3 years). Did some reading of documents for work. And now, have less that 100 pages to go in "Station Rage" by Diane Carey (ST-DS9 #13). Maybe read "Destiny Trilogy" after. Hoping to read modern classic in IR (international relations): "International Regimes" edited by Stephen D. Krasner (1983) sometime soon too.

I finished TP: Plagues of Night and just started Raise the Dawn. I will miss the old DS9.
