Got Seekers 1 in the mail & decided it was about time I read Vanguard. So I'm reading Harbinger. There's an awful lot of characters introduced in the first few chapters, but I'm mostly managing to keep them straight.
Enjoy! You are in for a hell of a ride

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm attempting to make my way, chronologically as best I can, through the Trek-lit verse thanks to going by some of the chronology pages I've found through BBS & other places. A mammoth task but I'm going to try.

I've read a few Strange New Worlds & one New Voyages piece, and I just finished ENT: By the Book which was a simple but enjoyable read. Now I'm moving on to ENT: What Price Honor?

Wish me luck on this one!

Good luck! I'm about to start something similar, as I've promised myself I will for a while.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

It was a basic tale but nicely told, I thought - kept me engaged throughout. What did you think?

Maybe you want to discuss By the Book in the Review Thread from a few months ago? http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=235054

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

You can find most review threads with polls here: http://www.eikehein.com/stuff/trekbbs/review_threads/

(The thread for By The Book is relatively recent since I post one thread a week for older books to fill up that ranking list. As you can see in the link above there's one for What Price Honor as well. )

I've just started reading Deparment of Temporal Investigations: Watching the Clock, actually the first time since I was a teenager I've read a Star Trek book, I'm liking it so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just got back from Comic Con, where I was able to pick up New Visions - The Mirror Cracked; the lame comic book stores near me don't carry it. Anyway, it went to the top of the reading list. It was pretty good, not great, but very good - I like John Byrnes' work in these photocomics.
