Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished The Fall: Revelation and Dust last night, and then today my copy of Vanguard: Open Secrets came in the mail (what timing!), so I'll be reading that and then probably Precipice (which I also ordered) before continuing on with The Fall.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished off What Judgements Come (VAN#7) and have moved right into Storming Heaven (VAN#8) while i wait for The Poisoned Chalice to arrive. I'm only a few chapters in, and really digging it so far. After reading the last bunch of novels in the Vanguard saga, i'm just curious as to the whereabouts of
. Perhaps David Mack explains later in this novel. I guess i'll see

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

read a few books in the last week - Miss Marple's Final Cases, A Morbid Taste for Bones and One Corpse Too Many (started re-reading the excellent Cadfael chronicles, as it's been a few years since i read them), and DS9: Demon's of air and Darkness (and it's follow-up novella, Horn and Ivory).

I enjoyed the DS9 entry in the Gateways saga, and given that i'd only previously read the New Frontier entry, Cold Wars, I decided to read the TNG book in the cycle, Doors into Chaos, to see what the plot was actually all about.

I'm a couple of chapters from the end, which i'm going to try and finish tonight in preparation for The Poisoned Chalice downloading to my Kindle tomorrow. Looking forward to that!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Doctor Who: Nuclear Time by Oli Smith the other night. It wasn't bad, but also not one of the better ones I've read. I felt that Rory and Amy were sidelined too much. The stuff that focused on the Doctor was good and timey wimey, but it seemed like the book was more about the guest characters than anything. That would be fine if I actually cared about them, but I really didn't. Overall, an ok Doctor Who story, not particularly good, but not bad either.

I then read the short story "Old Bugs" by H.P. Lovecraft. Not a bad story, but definitely not the kind of story you think of when you hear the name Lovecraft.

I'm now reading Star Trek: The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack. I've only read three chapters but I've already spotted both a LOST and a Pinky and the Brain reference.

TOS #55 Double, Double from Michael Jan Friedman. Not to bad.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started re-reading the Errend of Vengeance trilogy by Kevin Ryan, which sees TOS Enterprise thru the eyes of an innocent and naive young Klingon who is undercover as a spy as a redshirt on the Enterprise. A Klingon posing as a Starfleet crew member as the lead is a lot of fun, and getting his take on everything gives great insight to the Klingons of the 23rd century. Will be reading the sequel trilogy Errand of Fury as part of the larger re-read following Errand of Vengeance.
I read Double, Double decades ago, and remember that I liked it. I still have it and plant to re-read it soon too as part of my massive Trek re-read.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^ I am actually doing a complete pocket read as well. I started about a year ago and am moving along pretty quickly. To keep things fresh I usually read a book from each show and repeat the cycle to keep from getting burned out.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I don't have the complete run by any means. I have everything for the last 10 or 12 years, and lots and lots older than that, but far far from everything. I'm doing a re-read and new read both, as I'm re-reading the books I have and have bought some new books, getting the ones that I've heard good things about and/or that sounded interesting to me, books by authors I've enjoyed other books by.
I was going to re-read them in chronological order, at least as best as I could figure, but decided to go with publication date from here out. I figured publication date would make it easier to do the crossovers, and also there are some details that I just think will make more sense that way, such as the inter-book continuity.
But I didn't decide to do that until I already started the Errand books, and since the six books work as a mini series I'm going to read them one after the other.
I also have a few of the really old books that pre-date the Pocket line too. It is neat to know I'm not the only one out there doing this, even if some of the details of what we have and how we're going about them aren't quite the same.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Yeah, I actually started this task by ordering a huge lot of about 150 books off of e-bay. There are obviously gaps but I have been grabbing about 5 at a time every few months from a local used bookstore. I've been reading the Bantam books as well as the TOS and TAS novelizations when I can find them. I'm rapidly approaching the point where I have to order books to fill in the gaps. It's been fun.
