I need to read some of Ben Bova's stuff. He was a guest speaker at my college one year and I was able to meet him.

I'm going to start The Iron Druid Chronicles novella Grimoire of the Lamb, next time I get a chance to do a bit of reading.

Just posted my review of Jeffrey Lang's The Light Fantastic, which certainly lives up to the "fantastic" part of the title.
Agreed. I'm enjoying this novel as well. The dialogue is great, the way the story progresses makes it difficult to put down, and I love the story continuation for some minor characters from some memorable TNG episodes. I will be disappointed when I finish and have to read something else. I feel sorry for the rebound book.

I think the crew interactions and the way they speak are accurate for the most part, except for Kirk continually calling McCoy, "Doc."
That wasn't Blish's fault. It was changed by one of the book's editors who wasn't aware that he was being consistent with the TV show, and thought referring to a doctor as "Bones" was silly.

Oops.

Interesting, thanks, Keith. I think I've read somewhere several years back? I was going to do a little research on the book when I was done reading.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I bought Sorrows of Empire on a whim 3 weeks ago and started reading it tonight. This is incredible! I certainly wasn't expecting connections to the Vanguard series.

I believe he has a big short story collection coming out from Tor shortly. (I wrote the jacket copy for it a few months ago.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just reread the old "Phantom Zone" comic-book mini-series by Steve Gerber and Gene Colan--for probably the first time since its original publication in 1982. I remembered liking it way back when, and it held up pretty well.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

About halfway through My Brother's Keeper Book Two, Constitution. Really like how it adds dimensions to Mitchell, and makes Where No Man Has Gone Before all the more touching. Really makes Kirk's decisions in the episode make more sense.

My only complaint is the descriptions of the uniforms. But, they're only tossed in occasionally and I visualize it as the Pike-era uniforms anyway.
