Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm currently reading DS9: Lesser Evil. So far, I really like it due to the extra development of Elias Vaughn. I'd have to say it might be my second favorite of the Mission Gamma novels right behind the amazing Twilight (This Gray Spirit was very sub-par, and Cathedral had a slow first half and an enjoyable second half).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Unfortunately, I recently took a bit of an unplanned hiatus from writing reviews, but I just published my review of Jeff Mariotte's Serpents in the Garden. Going to be playing catch-up on my reviews of new releases!

Right now I'm reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth, The Klingon Art of War by Keith R.A. DeCandido, and The Light Fantastic by Jeffrey Lang.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Bit slower reading: read a couple of Martin Luther's works and then something about repentance & teshuvah translated from Maimonides. As for Trek: finished "Trial by Error" by Mark Garland (DS9 #21) and read the beginning of "Final Frontier" by Diane Carey (not to be confused with Star Trek V: The Final Frontier by J. M. Dillard). Carey's book is a bit of a found hidden treasure so far. Shall have to read the many unread current books that I have though.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

In the last couple of days I've read "An Excellent Mystery" by Ellis Peters, and "The Seige" by Peter David.
The Seige was one of the very early DS9 novels, so some mis-characterisation can be forgiven, but this novel was awful. Oddly, I remember reading it back when it was first published, and enjoying it at the time.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I took the advice given to me below and started the Voyager novel Full Circle a couple days ago. I'm not reading as fast as I have been for the last couple months, job #2 has started and I need more nap time. I kinda screwed myself by reading Unworthy first, but I do pretty much everything in my life out of order, so I'm sure I'll adapt just fine. I usually just read what ever Amazon tells me to. I assume there are some Voyager relaunch novels after Unworthy, so I'll do my research and try to read them in order. Kristen Beyer is becoming one of my favorite Trek novelists.

I also pre-ordered the first two "Seekers" novels coming out later this summer, they look pretty promising to me. Also checked out a sample of KRAD's Klingon Art of War book, which seems like something I will enjoy reading more this winter, but looks interesting.

Just read Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi- The Prisoner of Bogan. Pretty interesting but I peobably could have done without this whole series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished No Time Like the Past -- fun stuff! Good repartee between McCoy and Spock, and I appreciated the not-too-obvious allusions to future episodes and movies, like Spock referring to the future as an undiscovered country. I don't know if Cox has written Voyager before, but the 24th century characters sounded right on.

My first solo Trek book (after a couple of collaborations) was a Voyager novel titled The Black Shore, way back in 1997. But, yeah, that was a long time ago. I worried a bit about recapturing those voices after not writing those characters for more than fifteen years, so I binge-watched Season Six to get myself back in the Voyager groove again . . ..

Black Shore is arguably the best of the early Voyager novels imo.
