I started Over A Torrent Sea this afternoon and read three chapters before I put it down. So far, so good.

I started to read Mars by Ben Bova.The story of colonization on mars is quite an interesting read so far.The scientific stuff about mars has been some of the most intriguing part of the story.

I finished Starfleet Academy: The Gemini Agent yesterday. I thought it was odd that Spock was smiling so much, but otherwise it was pretty enjoyable.

I'm now reading Heat Rises by "Richard Castle".

Excellent book. I think Christopher's style of writing and focus on science/exploration fits Titan very well. His two Titan books are my two favorite in the series.

I just finished Watching the Clock and Plagues of Night. I am now continuing my Wheel of Time reread in anticipation of January's culminating novel. I just picked up Great Hunt, and its been a long time since I read it!

As someone with a PhD in aquatic invertebrate zoology, this novel is uncannily in my subject area, and I have to say the scientific terminology has been very plausible and well used so far!

Yeah, Titan is one of my favorite series right now, and Torrent was stupendous.

Finished "Enterprise: The Good That Men Do" recently and just posted my review here if anyone is interested.

I am probably going to pick up "Enterprise: Kobayashi Maru" tonight and get on with that.

Well, it took me way too long, but I finally finished Republic Commando: True Colors yesterday. Really enjoyed it, probably even more than the previous Republic Commando books.

Just started A Princess of Mars. On deck is Forgotten History.

I finished reading the second edition of the TNG Companion (TNG S1-Generations) earlier today. It was pretty good, it had lots of background stuff and trivia I'd never come across before.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished Jeff Shaara's latest, A Blaze of Glory, which is a novel of the Battle of Shiloh. It's the first in a new American Civil War trilogy about the war in the west, covering Shiloh, Vicksburg, and (I think) Atlanta. I was dubious, but I made it through the 400+ page novel in two days. I enjoyed it more than I have his WW2 stuff, especially that last on the battle for Iwo Jima. Part of the appeal is that he returned to his old style of using a panel of viewpoint characters. His last WW2 novel was pretty much a one-character story.
