Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

It's taken me two weeks but i've finally got through all 1100+ pages of 'It' by Stephen King. Although overall it's an ok book it is nowhere near the classic novel it's made to be. It could do with losing 300 pages too.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

A got a lot of Star Trek books recently at a Goodwill, so I've got a lot of stuff to read. I just finished Q-In-Law by Peter David. He's an awesome author, and I really like Q. The book itself was pretty good. It had a few flaws, though. I think Q came off as a bit too outright vindictive for no real reason when it comes to what he did. I know its set pretty early in TNG, and the book came out in 1991, but Q's actions just seemed a bit out of character. Still, there were a lot of great moments, and it was a good book overall.

What I read next is a hard choice, but I think I'm going with Infiltrator (TNG #42) then Star Trek TNG - Section 31: Rogue.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading Pawns Of War . . . again. I like John Byrne's work - easily the class of IDW's Star Trek stable.
I'm looking forward to picking up his new work, Strange New Worlds (Star Trek Annual 2013); which will immediately go to the top of the reading list.

I finished up the story I was reading in the Urban Fantasy anthology Dark and Stormy Knights, and started Oaths, the 4th ST:SCE novella in the fourth paperback collection, No Surrender, and the 16th overall.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Despite being distracted by lots of Tor manuscripts, I finally finished The Witches of East End. It was interesting to see how the TV show ransacked the original novel for story ideas, while often going in very different ways with them. And it's funny; I kept visualizing the actors from the TV show, even though the physical descriptions of the characters were often very different in the book . . . .
