I had a friend in High School that was convinced that Dafydd Ab Hugh was a pen name for Peter David as the humor and some of the style of writing was similar.

I hadnt heard or read that but then I hadnt heard or read anything discounting that either so I didnt disagree with him as he was the only other person in school reading the books with me lol.
I have met Peter David. I have met Dafydd ab Hugh.

Trust me, they're not the same person.
Speaking of Peter David, how's he doing after his stroke a while back?

Re: Dafydd ab Hugh

I haven't had any direct contact with Peter since his stroke. But I know that he's at home and recovering. He's attended at least one convention since, posts blog entries occasionally, and is currently planning to attend Shore Leave this summer. All of which I choose to take as very encouraging news.

Ah, yes, that is good. Quite fan of his work, especially the early stuff - Strike Zone et al.

I sort of agree, actually. Not great, not even really good, but I enjoyed reading them a lot.

Re: Dafydd ab Hugh

Arg. Rebels was a trilogy I expected to really like, but ended up disliking so much that I stopped reading part way through one of the books and never went back to it. (I think I managed to persevere until the early part of book 2.) This hardly ever happens with me. I keep telling myself I should revisit it someday, but... yeah.

I mean, at least I *finished* Warped...

I just got bored silly. I'm sure this was a case where, had the three books been compressed into one, the story might have been faster-paced. Just didn't seem epic enough for a trilogy, and the story is almost gone from my head, except I think a young pre-Vedek Winn was in it.

Re: Dafydd ab Hugh

Yeah, Rebels sucked. The page count on each book was so low they could just have easily been one book, too.

It was one of the only numbered DS9s I skipped when they first came out. They just looked lame to me for some reason, and I *love* DS9. I went back and picked them up used a few years back, during the dry spell after the DS9 relaunch had run its course. Sadly they lived up to my low expectations, I really wish I'd have skipped them.
