I'm reading an Alternate 20/21 century history novel The Company of the dead by David Kowalski.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished VAN #8 Storming Heaven. Vanguard was an amazing ride! Truly unique treklit, and it made me love the 5YM era. I guess i'm down for any series that fleshes out the time period, but doesn't feature the TOS crew in the forefront. I look forward to Seekers and the further exploration of the Taurus Reach.

Just reading some comics until Peaceable Kingdoms arrives. Maybe i'll finally pick up NF: Blind Man's Bluff instead of the comics...

I just barely started reading Dead Beat, the 7th novel in The Dresden Files at work today. I think I read about 1 paragraph during the last couple minutes of my break.

Finally started Witches of East End. I'm enjoying it so far . . . and having fun comparing it to the TV show.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've been on the same chapter of Stephen Baxter's Manifold: Origin for like a week and a half. My students this year have been... a unique challenge, I'll say that much.

Hoping to get a bunch of reading done over the holidays. Phew. At least I got a night in to read Poisoned Chalice!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Paths of disharmony and I'm still reeling from the ending of that book. I want to get through the Typhoon pact series so that I can start on The fall. So I'll be starting The struggle within next.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Took a break from Trek to read the political book Double Down about the 2012 Presidential elections. Same pair of guys that did Game Change a few years ago which got turned into an HBO movie.

As I thought however, Fearful Symmetry couldn't hold my interest. To many Kiras running around. So I'm going to jump into the books that I've been itching to get to for awhile, the Terok Nor trilogy. This will be my last DS9 books before starting TNG wing of novels.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Well latest book has been completed, "Distant Early Warning" by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore.

I wasn't that sure what to expect as I hadn't read any Vanguard or SCE books prior to it but it was an enjoyable experience.

Review is up here for anyone who is interested in my deeper thoughts.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read all three Hunger Games novels over the weekend. Hunger Games is outstanding. Catching Fire is really good, and then Mockingjay is just kind of mediocre. I think that the upcoming movies might actually eclipse the book (no Twilight pun intended). I know this was primarily aimed at teenage girls, but I thought I was going to explode if I had to read the word "kissing" one more time.

I've been rotating through three books during my reading time in morning.

Dune by Frank Herbert (reread)
Burning Paradise by Robert Charles Wilson - already really entertaining right off the bat
The Terror by Dan Simmons - finally picking up in the second act. way too much discussion of climbing equipment

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally just finished reading "Chainmail" by Diane Carey (2001, Gateways #2) and previously read "Evil in Modern Thought: An Alternative History of Philosophy" by Susan Neiman (2002) and "I See Satan Fall Like Lightning" by Rene Girard (translated by James G. Williams, 1999, 2001). They worked well together. Also reading more Plato (moving to the most dubious works which are by imitators).

"Chainmail" has a difficult start then gets plain silly then develops an interesting metaphor and also interesting approaches to technology. It could be like combining Piers Anthony's "Mode" Series with Robert Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" (well maybe).

The rest of my Gateways volumes are now hardcopy books. Got 20 ST books read this year so far. At least four more to go in order to tread water.

I really like The Terok Nor trilogy, lot of good intrigue.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read the (sob!) final issue of FEARLESS DEFENDERS last night. A shame Marvel cancelled that. As a lifelong DEFENDERS fan, I was really enjoying it.

Strange but true: Go prowling through the letter columns in eighties-era DEFENDER comics and you'll find several printed letters from a "Greg Cox" in Washington state.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of Deep Space Nine: Section 31: Abyss by David Weddle and Jeffrey Lang.

I recently finished Apocalypse for Beginners by Nicolas Dickner. I really enjoyed that one!

Right now I'm reading Mission Gamma, Book 2: This Gray Spirit by Heather Jarman.
