I finished up a pretty good Bantam book called Devil World by Gordon Ecklund. I am now reading MJF's Captain's Table entry Dujonian's Hoard. I'm having to take several breaks on this one.
I've never gotten around to Dujonian's Hoard. Is it set during his time on the Stargazer or the Enterprise(s)?

It's set on the E-D sometime not long before Generations.

He is currently the Captain of the E but he tells a tale from his time on the D. He leads into his story by saying he was commanding the fifth ship to bear the name.

^Yes, and the fifth ship is the D. Remember, the original had "no bloody A, B, C, or D." So the one with the fourth letter of the alphabet is the fifth ship. (Well, the fifth Federation ship of that name, since it's not counting NX-01.)

Besides, Picard says that the story he tells happened only a couple of months earlier. There was a significantly longer gap between the loss of the D and the launch of the E.

The other day I finished Star Trek: New Frontier: After the Fall by Peter David.

I'm now reading Torchwood: Risk Assessment by James Goss.

Tales of the Wold Newton Universe by Philip José Farmer.

Fun stuff!

Last year I read the Wold Newton Alternate novels A Feast Unknown, The Mad Goblin and Lord of the Trees by Farmer. This guy was completely in tune with today's "remix" culture. Except he was doing it a half-century ago.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Abominable by Dan Simmons came out yesterday! I love The Terror and this one is already shaping up to be a great historical fiction thriller. There's an extended foreword that is just outstanding.

Also still working on Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I hope to have both finished by the end of the month.

At the Simon & Schuster booth at New York Comic-Con recently, they were handing out free sleep masks printed with that book's title as promotions. They gave me one after my Rise of the Federation signing, and I think it actually helped me get some sleep in unfamiliar beds during my trip. At least, I think it helped me get to sleep faster, though I'm not sure I slept longer.

I have no idea what the book's about, though. But it strikes me as ironic that something to do with Stephen King would help me get sleep as opposed to losing sleep...

It's the long-awaited sequel to The Shining.

Danny Torrance has to save a girl from a traveling band of psychic vampires. You can't make this stuff up.

Received my copy from Amazon as well yesterday. Simmons has really carved out a nice little niche for himself as the master of historical horror in the last decade. Books that are scary as hell and historically accurate, to an authentic degree.

Drood has forever changed my mental picture of Dickens and poor Wilkie Collins. The same can be said for Black Hills and General Custer.
