Dragon's Honor by Greg Cox and Kij Johnson. I'm also reading some of the stories from Star Trek Log 5, novelizations of TAS episodes.
Wow. I'm always pleased and amused to discover that people are still reading some of those older books. That seems like such a long time ago . . . .

(It should be noted that Kij has since gone on to become quite the acclaimed, award-winning author . . . .)

Truth be told I never finished the last couple of seasons of DS9 and Voyager so I refuse to read any of the TNG/VOY/DS9 relaunch novels until I finish the televised series. That is why most of my trek lit reading comes from the numbered novels of the 80's and 90's. I have read your Khan trilogy Greg and it is absolutely amazing how you weave together so many bits of continuity into real world historical events. Really enjoyed that series of books.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've been reading and enjoying Strangers From The Sky by Margaret Wander Bonanno. I haven't read this one in some years and thought it was about time. It's quite good, and highly recommended.
Also, had to take a very short break in it to read Captain Spock by the late AC Crispin from Enterprise Logs. I just got this book in the mail yesterday (Abe Books I believe), and since Crispin is the best, I had to drop whatever else I was doing to read it. I can't believe I've missed this story in the dozen or so years it's been out.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Warpath tonight. Excellent book! Vaughn continues to be my favorite new character although I fear his stories have come to an end. I'll go ahead and start Fearful Symmetry mostly because I'm interested in finding out the history of Iliana Ghemor. That said I'm worried about "Too many Kiras" syndrome which seems to be where the books are headed.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished up Reap the Whirlwind (which was awesome). While I'm waiting for my copy of Open Secrets to come in I've gone ahead and started Revelation and Dust. My whole plan was to read through the Treklit universe in chronological order (I know it's not required, I just want to do it that way), but I found that the "present day" stuff keeps advancing too quickly for me. So I'll keep up starting with The Fall and go back and read stuff in the past when there's a gap in the release schedule (i.e. when there's a 5YM novel published ).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I decided to set aside everything else I'm reading to focus on Catching Fire, so I can be done with it by the time the movie comes out (or at least as close to done as I can get).

I'm still slowly reading my way through the old numbered books because at this point that's pretty much all I've got left to read aside from SNW and most of the Shatner books.

During my annual trip to Cabo where I sit on the beach or by the pool and read for a week I finished off the following Trek or Trek author related books.

Terminator Salvation: Cold War by Greg Cox - Yeah, finally getting to this after it's been sitting on my shelf since I bought it as it was released. Pretty good prequel.

The Return by Shatner - Yeah, it's over the top Kirk but it's got a lot more TNG crew than I thought and not a bad story. It's my understanding the more you go along the more it comes across as fan fic but I'll see. I do like Reeves-Stevens writing a lot.

ST:TNG #11 Gulliver's Fugitives. Crap. Just didn't like it at all.

ST:TNG #16 Contamination by John Vornholt. I liked this one. Fun mystery.

Thanks! Glad you liked it. I remember writing that a few summers back . . . .

Picked up Destiny again a few days ago, in Book Two right now. I'm amazed at how good this still is. This is my third of fourth ime reading it, and it's still as gripping as the first time.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Early this morning, I finished watching Season 1 of "Enterprise" and enjoyed it much. Has anyone discovered a copy of "The Teachings of Surak" (unabridged) in this timeline? I am continuing to finish the complete works of Plato. Only about 1/3 of the way through "Chainmail" (Gateways #2) by Diane Carey (2001) and not sure if I got book info right as it is on my e-reader which has crashed (maybe get a replacement on Black Friday). Not sure which "Great Political Thinker" I shall read next, though, Harrington's book about American socialism could be interesting. I was thinking about reading some of the British socialists or labour party theorists.
