Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Reading Doomsday World by the stacked writing team of Peter David, Carmen Carter, Robert Greenberger and Michael Jan Friedman. Just how do four writers collaborate on a 270 page book without stepping all over each other? I feel that at times I can pick up on certain inflections of the authors but by and large I have no idea how they do this.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just published my review of Avatar, Book Two by S.D. Perry.

Also just blew through David Mack's The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses. What a read! Loved it. Review coming soon.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished rereading Dayton Ward's debut novel, In the Name of Honor, for the first time in far too long. It holds up very well even though it tried tackling the Klingon forehead issue before "Affliction"/"Divergence" settled it, and it provides an excellent explanation for Kirk's uncharacteristic hatred of Klingons in TUC. Although I can tell it was under a different editorial regime, since the book disregards the existence of "More Tribbles, More Troubles," something I'm sure Dayton wouldn't have done if he hadn't been instructed to do so. And there's one more slight continuity glitch:

Oh, I didn't realize Luceno wrote the YA version. I didn't realize he ever wrote YA stuff.

I'm reading Brink of Chaos by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall. It's the third book in the 'End Series'. I've also been reading bits and piece of books I have about JFK's assassination.

finished the Terok Nor trilogy. Great read, far more enjoyable than I anticipated.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Got Ceremony Of Losses in yesterday, finished it today. What a read, fantastic novel!

Now working on The Farther Shore. I never got around to reading the first four novels of the Voyager Relaunch, and was able to find Homecoming and The Farther Shore secondhand. Sofar, both novels aren't very impressive. I was planning on finding the Spirit Walk Duology to finish the entire set, but not sure right now.
