Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of Kirsten Beyer's Protectors. (Or should I say "New York Times Bestselling Author Kirsten Beyer"?)

Currently reading The Lost Era: Serpents Among the Ruins by David R. George III, as well as a very interesting novel: Hominids by Robert J. Sawyer.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

It's February, so I'm reading this year's Baseball Prospectus annual volume. Only now I'm finally saving shelf space (and the annoyance of dealing with last year's volume when this year's volume rolls around) by getting it in eBook form.......

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I went to the reading list at www.thetrekcollective.com or whatever the correct site is and noticed how few of the recent books that I have read. A disappointment but also meaning many good books in the future.

I finished reading "The Mind Parasites" by Colin Wilson (1967, 2005) which was a good read and then took a Christian book break and read "Spirituality for the Rest of Us" by Larry Osborne (2007).

Now, I just finished Chapter 1 from "Vulcan's Glory" by D. C. Fontana (1989, ST-TOS #44) which looks to be an older but better read. Look forward to more up-to-date books soon.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Thanks "Thrawn" for the flowchart. Shall make use of it more and more. I am media unaware. Do not know who "Kirsten Beyer" is let alone how to pronounce that last name. I guess it rhymes with Meyer. Shall have to do a Google search. I suppose if you have a problem with the name, you sing "I'm a Kirsten Beyer wiener." But surely that would be juvenile. And I must surely be foolish before looking at who this person appears to be from a simple google prompt.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Another double post. Sorry. Did search. See that Kirsten Beyer has authored 8 or 9 Trek novels. I have bought about the first 20 or so VGR novels but have yet to start reading the series. Maybe soon. Must use flowchart...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts of Empire. Quite good. A few quibbles about a lot of stuff happening "off-screen" as it were. Not a fan of the direction it takes Sisko in, though I do understand it and think it makes for an interesting story point. I will say that it the end of the "Two-State" Problem does feel a little... quick. Overall though, very good.

I'm currently stalled about 1/3 of the way through Nick Harkaway's Doctor Who novella, Time Trips: Keeping Up with the Joneses. It's not badly written, but the Tenth Doctor it depicts feels like a caricature, too over the top - even for Ten! - and perhaps too twee.

Anyway, now onto to Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Last week I finished The Kane Chronicles, Book One: The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.

I then read The Walking Dead, Volume 3: Safety Behind Bars.

I'm currently reading and almost finished with Star Trek: The Fall: Peaceable Kingdoms.

I decided I was in a comic book mood, so I started Saga Volume 1.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading the DS9 novel "Warped" by what looks like K.W. Jeter, but may be H.W. Jeter, the cover shot on the Kindle is a little fuzzy and the font is weird. I'm not familiar with this author, will have to do a little research when I finish it.

I've been on a TrekLit kick for the last year or so and it doesn't seem like it's gonna end any time soon. After catching up on most of the recent novels I decided to go back to reading older 'episodic' novels. I like the one-shot, action-oriented story lines for casual reading. I like this novel a lot so far, it seems a little deeper thematically and in terms of character presentation than a lot of the episodic novels. This author does have a penchant for the technobabble, which is probably really entertaining for some, but for me it's distracting. That's the only complaint I have though, I'm looking forward to the rest of the book.
