Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Been dipping into Lost Voices Of The Royal Air Force, edited by Max Arthur, but it is a dip-into kind of book, and I haven't decided what the next proper front-to-back read will be...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up Walls of the Universe by Paul Melko. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I've really become quite a fan of alternate universes or worlds and time travel and reliving your life over and over.

I'm almost done with Indistinguishable From Magic by that guy up there ^. First Trek book I've read in a while. The next thing on the list is the new Stephen King & Stewart O'Nan novella A Face in the Crowd.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've got two books going (as usual). Carrying the Fire By Michael Collins (Apollo 11 astronaut for those who don't know), and Greg Cox's excellent (so far) novelization of The Dark Knight Rises.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished reading Starfleet Year One by Michael Jan Friedman and anyone who is interested can read the review at the following link - http://killie-booktalk.blogspot.co.u...-friedman.html

Next up to be read in the Star Trek world is Final Frontier by Diane Carey which I am looking forward to as several people have told me it is an enjoyable read.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally found time to read Forgotten History by Christopher Bennett, which was much fun. Am now rereading The World of Star Trek by David Gerrold, which I don't think I've read in decades, although I devoured it when I was a teen.

(I stumbled onto a used copy at Shore Leave a few weeks ago and couldn't resist reading it again.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished "Spock's World" by Diane Duane, and I'm starting the Rihannsu series also by Diane Duane. It has been a few years since I've read them, but they've always been my favorite Star Trek books.

Which edition are you reading? The original from 1973 or the 1984 reprint? I read the 1984 edition that same year when I was a teen, and I remember Gerrold writing in that version how there were differences from the original. In several places, he wrote, "In the 1973 edition of this book, I wrote about.....". I've been curious about the 1973 printing ever since, but every copy I've found has been priced beyond my budget.

It's an eighth printing (from 1976) of the 1973 edition. I picked up a well-worn copy for $3 at a convention.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Taking a break from Star Trek to read The Bourne Identity, as I've only read it once. Amazing!

Then, The Captain's Daughter.
