Absolutely. We're drunks, but we're drunks with standards, dammit!

(My sideboard includes or has included, among others, Dalmore, Macallan, Glenfarclas, Talisker, Oban, and Glenkeith, that last one solely so I could say that there was a bottle of Scotch at home with my name on it -- the stuff itself is pretty poor.)

When I'm writing, I have to watch the budget, so my creative fuel is Jack Daniel's, a reliable Tennessee sour mash whiskey. When I'm drinking for pleasure or a special toast, it's single malt Scotch — usually a wee dram of The Macallan, Balvenie, Oban, Ardbeg, or Glenmorangie.

^^^ Wow, I think I might need to go and have a scotch myself after getting those two responses!

If I ever make it over the pond to Shore leave or either of you come to a Con here, I'll be sure what to buy you in the bar.

You see, there's my problem. Maybe I'd get more done in writing with whiskey as opposed to beer.

^ Well, sure. For one thing, you'll need to get up to pee less frequently when you stick to whiskey. (Same inebriation with less volume. It's a beautiful thing.)

That's why I prefer the stronger ales and barley wines made by smaller breweries to corporate domestic beer. You get the wholesome goodness of beer and the stronger alcohol content of the fire water all in one.

and why I go for light beer when I'm at a party. I drink scotch at the same rate as beer, volume wise.

Destiny and spoilers

I really want to read the Destiny trilogy, but im worried about spoiling books that i haven´t read and are before it on trek lit chronology.

I have read DS9 Relaunch upto Demons of Air and Darkness, and haven´t read TNG post Nemesis books or Titan books...

if I read Destiny will i be spoiled?

Re: Destiny and spoilers

my guess would be yes, but more for TNG and Titan than for DS9

Re: Destiny and spoilers

I think that for the TNG relaunch and Titan there will be some major spoilers revealed if you read destiny (this is my assumption though). Trek lit has taken on its own continuity. I would recommend that you read the five current TNG relaunch books before Destiny at least (Death in Winter, Resistance, Q&A, Before Dishonor, and Greater Than the Sum).
