Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

FINALLY managed to get thru Seize the Fire. It was - tiresome.

Next is Rough Beasts of Empire, which judging by the rumbles I've heard about it, I'm less than excited. Ah well, ONWARD!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up "Hard News", the second story in Vanguard: Declassified. Pennington is one of my favorite characters so I really enjoyed seeing a story from his perspective. It was also cool to read a story by just Kevin Dilmore. I've really enjoyed the stuff he's written with Dayton Ward, and the stuff that Ward has written by himself, and now I know that Dilmore solo is just as good.

You could have known that years ago by reading The Road to Edos, his solo story in New Frontier: No Limits.

Oh, I completely forgot about that one. I loved that too.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished Psych: Mind Over Magic. It was very entertaining, and funnier than the previous novel, A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Read. I'm about to start on The Embrace of Cold Architects by David R. George III, the first story in Myriad Universes: Shattered Light.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Headhunter earlier today. Very solid book, a tad weaker than Greg's other CSI novel Shock Treatment IMO, but definitely a fun read.

Next up: Fantastic Four: What lies between by Peter David. (I'm currently trying to reduce my backlog of paper books I bought before switching to eBooks.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I really wish they'd released those Marvel novels in e-form. I've read X-Men:Watchers on the Walls and Wolverine: Road of Bones, and really enjoyed them. I'd really love to read more of them, but at this point I'm trying to get as close to 100% digital as I can get. So far these, the Bond novels, and the Harry Potter books are the only books I haven't found in e-form. I own the hardcovers of the Harry Potter books, but my mom and I have read them so many times they are literally falling apart, and I'd love to replace them with e-books.

Well, Headhunter was my first stab at a CSI book. Glad to hear the learning curve is heading in the right direction!

Definitely wouldn't mind to read another CSI novel by you, but it seems as if they have stopped to produce them (?).

To be honest, I don't know if that's true or not. I haven't talked to anybody at Pocket about CSI for months. I hope not. I've already done a Grissom novel and a Langston novel, so I suppose I ought to do a book with Ted Danson's character, too!

^I like Danson's D. B. Russell. He's a cool, eccentric character.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Edit: This is in response to Greg.

^ FWIW The only indication I'm going by is that the last one was published in July (I think), and I haven't seen another one listed at Amazon yet. So there probably are plans for more, and they're waiting until the new lead character is more established.

And he's from Seattle, my old hometown! I could have fun with that . . . .

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just bought Tied In: The Business, History and Craft of Media Tie-In Writing , edited by Lee Goldberg and I think I'll read that before I'll start with the Fantastic Four novel.

I had it on my "potential reading" list for a while and today I noticed that the price for the Kindle version was down to less than 1 €, so I figured "Why not?".
