Vulcan's Forge by Josepha Sherman and Susan Schwartz. Wanted to get this one done before I read the recent trilogy. I had already read Vulcan's Heart and was under the impression that Forge was the sequel. Whoops.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished A Time to Kill early this morning. Really good, really well paced. Now onto to A Time to Heal.

I'm slightly annoyed because the Kindle version of Heal only has chapters 1, 2 and 3 demarcated on the progress bar and no others. I like to break up my day by reading a chapter here and there, and like to have a general sense of how long a chapter is. When the Kindle books don't have an easy way to discern this, I get miffed!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Lost Moon: the Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13, Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger. Now I'm starting Failure Is Not an Option: Mission Control from Mercury to Apollo 13, by Gene Kranz. Appropriate stuff given the impeding Mars landing...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Robots: The Recent AI was very enjoyable, although most of the stories were more about disembodied AIs than actual robots. I guess with today's wireless technology the idea of a computer intelligence staying housed in one body is just becoming unrealistic.

I just finished up Torchwood: Almost Perfect. A very quick read, but also pretty fun, which is not a word I usually associate with Torchwood! It was good to spend some time with Captain Jack again.

I'm looking forward to starting Titan: Fallen Gods today. Up on deck after that is Yoda: Dark Rendezvous.

I've got that to read as well. Looking forward to that one.

After many years away from Trek literature, I've recently started on the Voyager relaunch novels. Really enjoyed Homecoming, and now about halfway through The Farther Shore.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just re-read The Phantom Menace. It's a lot better than the movie, to be certain. Many things that made zero sense in the film did in the book. (ie, Anakin's appearance isn't as random, since he's introduced earlier in the book).

Now, I'm reading (for the first time) The Exile of Khan Noonien Singh by Greg Cox. So far, I'm mesmerized!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading a book on Prohibition, Last Call by Daniel Okrent. Pretty good so far, and he does a nice job of painting portraits of the people involved. He tends to follow their narrative threads one at a time though, for the most part, which means that sometimes I'm confused as to the chronology of events. That he needs to divert and describe social history at points doesn't help that particular aspect, but it's a complex topic and he does a very good job of bringing it all together. I'm definitely not putting this one down.

I've also been going a little bit crazy for comic books ever since seeing The Dark Knight Rises and have been checking out a bunch from the library, and even reading them right there in the bookstore. I'll do a mass review blog of them when I've finished the current wave.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just wrote my review for the latest new Trek release, Michael A. Martin's Titan: Fallen Gods.

Currently reading an early novel, Majliss Larson's Pawns and Symbols. Hoo boy, working to get through this one.
