Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading StarTrek TNG Rogue Saucer by John Vornholt this is a fast paced read more enjoyable than plodding through books one and two A time to be born and a Time to die by John Vornholt I read a few weeks ago.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

TNG #42 Infiltrator by W.R. Thompson. Pretty good book for one of the numbered novels. This one revisits the geneticically enhanced humans concept in Star Trek.

Hope you like it!
Finally finished it today (didn't had too much time to read the last week or so ).

I really liked it, the hints for Tarantula's identity were a tad to obvious maybe, but overall a good read.

Next up: Absent Enemies and then the next Cox novel No Time like the Past.
Glad you enjoyed it. I had fun spoofing the publishing industry a bit. Write what you know, right?

Hope you like the new Trek book.
My review for The Bestseller Job is up now.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Liked the first story in the The King in Yellow well enough, but I'm struggling through the others. I'm going to pause it for now and start up on Indistinguishable from Magic.

Whispers Under Ground by Ben Aaronovitch - like the previous two books in the PC Peter Grant Series it's a fun read.

Thanks for the alert! And I assure you that I'm far more familiar with book publishing than black ops and assassinations!

Anyway, I think I'm going to take a brief respite from Trek Lit and plunge into ... The King in Yellow by R.W. Chambers.
I'm interested to hear what you think -- I've never been able to get past the first few pages, but since it's such a major influence on Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series, I feel like I should read it.

((In case you don't know, Marion's earliest proto-Darkover stories were fanfics of Chambers' novel.))

Its a real page-turner. When I read that one, I intended to sit in Starbucks with a coffee and read a couple of chapters, and finally emerged a few hours later having read the whole thing!

I read the Vanguard series faster than any other Trek books. It is a testament to the great writing and plot lines I wish I could read it all over again for the first time.
