Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm far enough into the stuff I've been reading I decided to throw another book into the mix. I started Hounded, the first book in Kevin Hearn's Iron Druid Chronicles. I've been curious to read this series since I found out that it takes place near where I live.

Oops, that was just supposed to be near where I live. I started to write home town, but changed my mind because it's not actually my home town, just another part of the Phoenix area. Fixed it.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Sorry, if I added a computer gripe to my last posting about reading "Shadow Lord" by Laurence Yep (1985, ST-TOS #22). My computer is running better than before and I am happy with the team at an anonymous corporation. Services were free. The e-mail came back the very next day. Have my Star Trek library too.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading Star Trek TNG book3 A Time to sow by Dayton Ward& Kevin Dilmore. This book is certainly better written than John Vornholt's novels that start off this series.I really didn't care for the storyline of Wesley Crusher traveler storyline in the first 2 books.I got bored reading about Wesley Crusher the first 2 novels.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished the first Double Helix novel Infection. Quick and easy read but not a lot of substance to this one. Hopefully the other writer's can pick up the pace a little bit.

That was my feeling exactly. Wesley had super powers that made him capable of doing just about anything which made it pretty boring to me. The Vornholt books were the only pair that didn't work for me. I was never in the "you only need to read the last three books" camp. The Mack pair is obviously the best but I think the Ward/Dilmore pair is the 2nd best. Then Greenberger then the Vornholt, whom I normally find entertaining but not in this series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally got hold of a second hand copy of A Rock and a Hard Place, which slightly defeats the original purpose of this Peter David dive back, but I'll be reading that soon as I finish The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter

lol

Well, I guess you didn't write a duology for "a time to" so you're not in the "pair" club.

Although for me you did write the best one, and with it introduced a great original character who lasted almost ten years.

Enjoy proto-calhoun! This is the book that got me into treklit to begin with when I was a kid.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Been a few months. I finally finished out Over a Torrent Sea. Busy Sept. - Dec. meant not a lot of time for reading. Didn't groove to Torrent Sea at first but the last half really hooked me into finishing it this week. A little freer now so hopefully I can get back in the Trek Lit groove.

Started up Voyager: Unworthy last night, too. About 30 pages in. Enjoyable so far, though there's a weird bit where Chakotay tells Icheb about what it was like for Seven to be Borg. I know it's for the reader's benefit but it just felt weird. Still, everything else is great.

I also read the recent Doctor Who eBook Time Trips: The Death Pit. A lot of fun, but it does feel unfinished. Like it's a two-parter or begging a sequel.
