Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Warpath and now moving on to Fearful Symmetry. Really liked Warpath nice taut, action-thriller. However, I really wish Kira was a bit more active in the Post-UNITY books. While the Kira chapters were interesting, I was hoping for some Captain Kira stuff. Alas.

Current Plan: Fearful, Soul Key, Rise Like Lions, "Reservoir Ferengi" and Never Ending Sacrifice. Then finally onto the Post-Nemesis books.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Ahem, "The Chimes At Midnight"...

In a word-wow, it was much better than I'd remembered. I enjoyed Thelin, he was a good, interesting character. (He was so close to Kirk, it makes you almost forget Spock isn't there).
It was certainly a darker AU counterpart to the TOS movie series, what with the Whale Probe succesfully ransacking earth, David being tortured, the Klingons assaulting earth, and the Genesis torpedo eventually being used as the very thing the Federation dreaded (a weapon of mass destruction).

Now I'd better go back to Day Of The Vipers.

Just posted my review of the classic Diane Duane novel, Spock's World.

Currently reading Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and tackling Anathem by Neal Stephenson.

Finished re-reading Seize the Fire the other day, and am now working on re-reading Rough Beasts of Empire, which is making me sad.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Made it to the comic book shop for the first time in months. Now I can catch up on the X-Men, the Avengers, Batwoman, Buffy . . . and, yes, an honest-to-god Dark Shadows/Vampirella crossover. (Like I could possibly pass that up.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I started STTNG: Indistinguishable from Magic, and the sixth Dresden Files novel, Blood Rites earlier today. I'm not even 30 pages into either one yet, and they are both already off to much better starts that Seize the Fire.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just breezed through Fearful Symmetry. Compared to other DS9-R stories it really felt short. I liked the first half (side) but felt that it probably would have been better with the chapters alternating. That said, I'm really not sure how I feel about the "revelations" about Dukat.

Now onto The Soul Key. Already 55 pages in, enjoying it quite a bit.

Can't believe I'm closing in on the end of the DS9-R!

Just started reading Joe Casey and Tom Scioli's amazing Godland series from Image Comics. Fantastic kirby-esque world with fun dialogue and beautiful artwork. Also, I can't wait for the second book in Mack's trilogy to show up at the end of the month

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I am nearly finished with Fear Agent. Is Heath Houston the only Goldwater Republican protagonist in the history of comics? I don't want to go political, but him arguing with his neocon dad was really fun.
