Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I just finished Destiny for the third time, I'm sort of re-reading Vanguard for a third time in between other stuff. I think I've read the DS9 relaunch at least three times over all the years.

Which novels can you pick and read again and again without losing interest?

Strangers from the Sky.

Most of the Reeves-Stevens' work, but especially Memory Prime, Prime Directive, and Federation. Also, The Ashes of Eden and The Return.

Vendetta.

More recently, Provenance of Shadows.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

So far, novellas from Myriad Universes:

Places of Exile (read in total two or three times)
The Chimes at Midnight
Brave New World

It is likely that I will re-read the entire series at least once more sometime.

I've also re-read two VOY-R novels and might reread them again.

One day, when I have all the novels and episodes, I might read/watch/play (STO) everything in internal chronological order.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I'm still working diligently to have read all the Trek books I want for the first time. But i know I will some day read Destiny and DTI again. Perhaps the Beyer Voyager series as well.

-A Rock and a Hard Place
-And of course "The Final Reflection"

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

Serpents Among the Ruins by DRGIII I've read about 4 times...I read it every few years. I've posted before what a kick @$$ book that is....so I won't digress further on that.

Also have read Vanguard twice, the whole thing. I remember reading about it being a new series...I thought, "OK, they got a lawyer, a writer, and old fart for the cranky doctor and some Orion as a space trader as main characters....this is gonna suck."

I was wrong. Probably the very first book and Reap th Whirlwind were my two favs in the series. Vanguard I think captured the Essence of Trek.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I've read A Stitch in Time and the DS9: Avatar books a couple times each. I think I've read the first four or five New Frontier books 2 or three times now. I think I've read VAN: Harbinger at least 2 or 3 times. I've got a lot of Trek books that I plan to reread eventually, but for now I'm just trying to focus on getting caught up on the current stuff before I go back.

Destiny, Beyer's novels, DTI, and when I was in high school about a decade ago I couldn't get enough of New Frontier. Re-read those a million times.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I've probably read Articles cover-to-cover at least 4 times.

I went through a phase where I loooooved the Shatnerverse novels, and would read them over and over again.

I've read ASD multiple times, too, though it's lost a bit of its appeal on reread...

Definitely have reread the Myriad Universe tales many times.

I've read The Return and Destiny many a time, and I imagine I'll be reading Avatar and Abyss several times throughout the years!

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

"Star Trek: The Motion Picture", "The Entropy Effect", "Strangers from the Sky" and "Andor: Paradigm". And I'd love to find time to reread "Immortal Coil".

Comics: "Double Blind" two-parter (Diane Duane's comedy with Naraht the horta and the Ajir vs the Grond), and the first three DC TOS Annuals: #1 "All Those Years Ago...", #2 "The Final Voyage" (with Will Decker) and #3, "Retrospect" (the Scotty's wife story). And WildStorm's "New Frontier: Double Time" one-shot.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

The ST novels I have reread the most are probably Prime Directive, Strangers From the Sky, The Final Reflection, The Wounded Sky and My Enemy, My Ally. Of course, these are all older ones so they've had more opportunity for rereads over the years!

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

Star Trek Log Ten was one of the first two ST books I owned (my mother picked it up for me in 1980 or 1981), so I've re-read it the most over the years, by far. Still one of the best early ST books, in my opinion. Alan Dean Foster adds quite a bit of material to his adaptation of "The Slaver Weapon" and it's still pretty good.

I've also read Star Trek Log Eight, The Entropy Effect, Black Fire, Web of the Romulans, The Wounded Sky, and the novelizations of TWOK, TSFS, and TVH many times over the years.
