Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I recently got back to my big 24th century chronological read-through. I wrapped up the novelization of "Relics" (great book BTW, loved the stuff Mike Friedman added to the book, unless it came from an earlier script of the episode) and am now on TNG: "Here There be Dragons." Normally I can't stand pure fantasy fiction, with dragons, etc. but I am loving this book so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Having finished all the Hornblower books, as well as Jeff Lang's "The Light Fantastic", I'm currently rereading "Doctor's Orders", one of my favourite trek books. Awaiting the final hardback edition of James Robinson's brilliant dc series "Starman" in the post so I can do a long awaited reread of that.

Frigging loved that book. Felt like it could have easily been an episode.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished KRAD's Horn & Ivory. It was excellent. I know it came first, but it reminded me a bit of the story that DRG3 was telling about Kira/Keev in Revelations & Dust, mostly due to the apparent time travel to the distant Bajoran past. Next up is the aformentioned DRG3's Twilight

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Protectors and am looking forward the next installment. Great series so far. I'm on to Captains Table by various authors in the interim. The Amazon write-up is promising, and some of my favorite TrekLit writers are on the credits.

Just posted my review of One Constant Star by David R. George III.

Right now I'm reading The Klingon Art of War by KRAD. And loving it, I might add!

Thank you so much! Fourteen years later, I still count that as one piece of fiction I'm particularly proud of.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished KRAD's Demons of Air and Darkness last night and following that up with Horn and Ivory tonight.

Now that I think about it, my previous read was A Gutted World, KRAD's contribution to the Myriad Universes collection. Not really my intention, but it seems I'm on a KRAD streak recently...

I'm just over 50 pages into The Light Fantastic by Jeffrey Lang. It's PURE AWESOMENESS so far.

I saw in the table of contents for Foundations that it apparently has the whole thing presented as one novel, rather than three novellas. So now I'm just wondering, where do the original novellas end?

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

There are three flashback tales making up the "novel." Each novella incorporates one of the flashbacks and its frame, before and after. So Book 1 is Chapters 1-8, Book 2 is Ch. 9-17, and Book 3 is Ch. 18-25. Although Books 2 & 3 open with a bit of recap/bridging material that's deleted from the novel version -- no more than two pages' worth in each case, I'd say.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading The Wounded Sky by Diane Duane. Its a fairly early pocket TOS book (#13), and it shows. I'm not quite sure what the 496 species of humanity are (that's a slight paraphrase), but I'm guessing its a Star wars like concept, with humans who live on different planets being referred to as being from that planet (like how Han Solo would call himself a corellian instead of a human). I think almost 500 different kinds of human's is a bit excessive myself. Also, the author writes some scenes like she had a thesaurus and dictionary right at hand, making coming out of warp (which shouldn't take more than 10 words unless its a weird situation) go on for paragraphs. She also has a weird grasp of ships at warp (I'm 100% certain that the Enterprise at warp couldn't physically destroy a comet in real space by flying through it).

Still, these are just weird things I've noticed, I'm not very far into the book yet. I've liked the few books by her that I've read before, so some of the weird stuff doesn't bother me at this point.
