Just finished Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night, very well done, cannot wait for the next installment. Now I am reading Edge of the Sword (ST:Errand of Vengeance), thanks to the reccomendations of my fellow BBS members

Oh, just finished "Mostly Harmless". Loved it, but didn't care for the ending.

Just finished both Hondo City Law (from 2000AD) as well as Scott Snyder's Severed. Both were really enjoyable. Next up i think i'll read Flashpoint by Geoff Johns and then New Froniter: Blind Man's Bluff by PAD. Been holding off reading it as it may be the lasr NF book we ever get

Currently reading Star Trek Enterprise: The First Adventure by Vonda Mcintyre, which i'm really enjoying. Also getting caught up on the post-Nemesis novels, starting with a re-read of the Destiny trilogy.

I finished DTI: Forgotten History yesterday. It's very enjoyable, I liked Watching the Clock more, but it's still very good.

I'm now reading Dies the Fire by S.M. Stirling.

"Letter to Star Trek" by Susan Sackett. I was rummaging around the bookcase, cleaning and arranging, and came across it. I'll bet that it has been 30 years since I last opened it up.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Still going through the DS9 TV series (for first time although did see the odd episode when they were on air) and just completing Season 2. Finished "City of God" by Augustine of Hippo. Read "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel and then returned to "Sword of Damocles" by Geoffrey Thorne both books include first person POV of a traumatized individual. Had to recall texts of psychology of memory and trauma while reading. I was wondering if it would be possible to do a shipwreck story (castaways) in ST much like Life of Pi.

Same here!

I've finished The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Vol. 1. A few good stories in there. Moving on, it's Emily Brontë's classic Wuthering Heights.
