Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review for Peter David's The Rift. Not sure what to read at the moment... I think I'm going to pause in my reading of the Errand of Vengeance series for now. I may read Una McCormack's Hollow Men, as I have a few days before the ebook version of Christopher Bennett's Forgotten History is released.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I have fond memories of The Rift, pleased as I was at the time to get a novel set during the same period as PAD's run on the DC Star Trek comics series. Even now, novels set on the 1701-A are pretty rare.

I picked up Tales of the Dominion War on sale a while ago, and I've finally gotten around to reading that. Like any anthology, it has its ups and downs, with a few standout stories so far (David Mack's comes to mind), and one story that I hated (despite an appealing premise) because I couldn't stand the writing style.

I finished reading Blood Work earlier today. I really enjoyed, and gave it 4/5 stars on Shelfari.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished "Articles of The Federation" by Keith R. A. DeCandido (2005) as on my book reader. Also reading "City of God" by Augustine (transl. by Marcus Dods in the free Schaff edition). Working my way through the major works of 'Great Political Thinkers' (as per Ebenstein) still as an ongoing challenge. It was hard to appreciate KRAD's book as I have never seen West Wing nor most modern TV shows. Sad to say I have not even seen quite a few of the ST TV shows (esp. DS9 and Enterprise). Perhaps soon... Not sure what to read next among the ST books. This website offers many good suggestions of course.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading a couple Trek books - alternating according to mood and trying to fill the void left behind by Vanguard ..

the first Errand of Vengeance book (don't have the rest but the first one's very nice), Price of the Phoenix and Children of Kings.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started Avatar. Ridiculously excited. I've read Behind Enemy Lines, Tunnel Through the Stars, The Battle of Betazed, Tales of the Dominion War, and The Left Hand of Destiny over the past month as lead-ins to the DS9 relaunch proper, and have bought about 40 paperbacks, including the Destiny books and the Typhon Pact stuff that's been released thus far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just to warn you, the TNG DW books aren't part of the DS9R continuity. I'm pretty sure that the first encounter between Ro and Picard in the DS9R is supposed to be their first encounter since "Preemptive Strike". I can't remember if it's in Avatar or Unity though.

^Their first meeting in the DS9 post-finale continuity is in Avatar, and yes, it does conflict with the Dominion War duology by Vornholt.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished A Time to Be Born last night. All around pretty good. The front end of the book feels padded, the trial aspect is rushed (A mixed blessing on that.). Of the Vornholt books I've read (Movie-Era TNG) this is hands down the strongest offering. My main complaint is that Captain Leeden comes across as dumb and obstinate, which means there's little to no sympathy for her through much of her story. Half the time I kept thinking to myself "What did they do before the Enterprise showed up if they can barely handle problems she keeps chiding Picard for not being able to handle." By and large though it was enjoyable. I found it interesting that Deanna disappears a bit. Vornholt tends to focus on her and I rather like how he makes her more than just a counselor. She does command the bridge for a bit but I don't recall her having much dialogue.

I started A Time to Die today. I'm about 10% in and it seems like it'll be pretty good. Though, Emo Picard is a bit much. (I hope he doesn't have to visit the Balance of Terror Reenactment again!). I see the books mentioned, in that they exist, but I haven't seen much talk about their quality.
