Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Read DS9: The Heart of the Warrior by John Gregory Betancourt over the last few days. Damn, that book wasn't good at all. The plots appeared to be not really thought through, sloppy writing and editing, and the less I say about the characterizations the better.

Just finished Forgotten History, absolutely loved it! My current read is now Star Wars: Medstar I: Battle Surgeons. Waiting on deck is Rand Unwrapped: Confessions of a Robotech Warrior by Frank Catalano.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished TOR: Deceived. In a word: wow. It was brilliant!

Now, I'm skipping very far ahead into my ST novel read-through and staring on Plagues Of Night. (Then, it's back to chronological order.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished my re-read of The Martian Chronicles on Friday night. I wrote a small review of it here. (Warning: contains much gushing over a much-beloved book.)

I'm going to finish up the stories in The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Vol. 1 before going on to Wuthering Heights.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Calling on Dragons the other day. The third in the series, they're still cute, but this one wasn't quite as engaging as the first two because it pulled away from Cimorene as the main character. She's still involved, just not the focus, and that took away some of the appeal. I started the last one, Talking to Dragons, yesterday. It is focusing on Cimorene's son. So far, it's got the same charm as the others. We'll see how it turns out.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

In the past week or so, I've finished both books in The Romulan War duology and am now reading the first book in DS9's Millennium Trilogy, The Fall of Terok Nor, which I'm enjoying quite a bit (the Reeves-Stevenses aren't my favorite Trek Lit authors, but they're not horrible).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm currently reading a 2000AD collection called Hondo City Law. My exposure to the Judge Dredd universe is limited, but i'm really enjoying this collection. It features work by the likes of Robbie Morrison, John Wagner, Colin MacNeil, Frank Quitely, Neil Googe and Andy Clarke
