Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I am almost halfway though "Mere Mortals" by David Mack (2008) and still playing catch-up. Also recently read "Make Hub, Not War" by CLB in ANALOG (Nov. 2013). Also about halfway through "International Regimes" edited by Stephen D. Krasner and it is challenging IR readings (1983). "The School for Scandal" by Sheridan (1777) was a very good read. Look forward to reading up-to-date novels.

I just finished Frozen Heat by "Richard Castle".

I'm now starting the second Burgoyne story from Star Trek: New Frontier: No Limits, "Through the Looking Glass" by Susan Wright.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Last night I read the second Burgoyne story from Star Trek: New Frontier: No Limits, "Through the Looking Glass" by Susan Wright.

Today I read the final story in No Limits, the Calhoun/Shelby story "A Little Getaway" by Peter David.

After I post this I'm going to start Star Trek: New Frontier: After the Fall by Peter David.

Yesterday I finished Star Trek: The Brave and the Bold, Book Two by KRAD.
Hope you enjoyed it.


I then read the second Soleta story from New Frontier: No Limits, "Out of the Frying Pan" by Susan Shwartz.
Question: Does anybody know why Soleta and Burgoyne each got two stories in the anthology?
It just worked out that way. Putting together No Limits was quite the challenge, as we only had a couple of months to put it together -- and by "we," I mean "I," as I did the bulk of the legwork on that antho. Peter had final approval over everything, of course, but I was the one who put out the big e-mail blast to every writer I could think of and hoping someone could write a story about a particular NF character in eight weeks.

I wanted to make sure every main character was represented, but I also wasn't about to turn down a story, so the fact that both Susan and I went for Soleta and Bob and Susan went for Burgoyne is just how it worked out. (We had a Xyon story in the works, but the draft didn't quite work, and we didn't have time to work with the author on it because of the compressed timeframe, so we had to drop it.)

I'm really pleased with how that anthology came out, especially given the time constraints.....

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I started reading the Tos Novel The Last Roundup by Christie Golden. Kirk's nephew Julius is a really jerky character in this book. He certainly got all the Colonists into a lot of trouble.

Started J.M. Dillard's Bloodthirst this morning and haven't put it down yet. Good Star Trek horror.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Took some time out of the wonderful but dense Pedagogy of the Oppressed to read The Fall: The Crimson Shadow by Una McCormack. Loved it so much I went back and re-read her Cardassia: The Lotus Flower for the first time in the better part of a decade.

In anticipation of finishing up Pedagogy, I've acquired copies of Socialism: Past and Future by Michael Harrington, Introducing Marxism: A Graphic Guide by Rupert Woodfin and Oscar Zarate, and Anti-Capitalism: A Beginner's Guide by Simon Tormey. Not sure whether I'll start on those, or go back and re-read and then finally finish A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I forgot to post that I started the Mirror Universe novella (or is it a short story), Lust: Freedom Angst by Britta Dennison from ST:Seven Deadly Sins. I had started this and then skipped it after a few pages back when I first read the collection right after it came out. At the time I was more interested in the stories after it so I had decided to read it later, and then I forgot about it until now.
