    Sounds interesting - I shall have to see if my library has a copy.

    Read a little of Joyland by Stephen King at the bookstore and was compelled to by it. The shat just hit the fan in Unworthy. I've read more books from May to now than I read in most years. Not having cable has been a blessing in disguise that's gotten me back in touch with my first love.

    I finished New Frontier: Stone and Anvil yesterday.

    I then read chapter 4 of Federation: The First 150 Years, "The Edge of Night: 2245-2290."

    I'm now reading Psych: A Fatal Frame of Mind.

    Just finished editing an (untitled) urban fantasy, which I have put into production at Tor. Now I just need to schedule the darn thing and brainstorm titles with the author!

    Untitled Urban Fantasy sounds good enough for me

    I just read The Price of the Phoneix mostly out of curiosity as it seems to be a somewhat polarizing book. Up next, Cataylyst of Sorrows by one of my favorite Trek authors Margaret Wander Bonanno.

    I suspect Marketing is going to want something less generic! :)

    The current working title is NIGHTWISE (as in "streetwise"), but I'm not in love with it yet.

    Meanwhile, I just started reading THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI by Helene Wecker,which I'm really enjoying so far. It's a period fantasy set in 1899 Manhattan . . .

    Having watched TOS films 1-5 in the last week I finally started Captain's Table: War Dragons last night. Interesting premise jumping through three time periods as the story goes.

    Hope you liked Dragon's Honor! But I feel obliged to point out that the book was co-written by Kij Johnson, who came up with the most of the plot and characters.

    Kij has since gone on to become an award-winning author of original sf and fantasy, with various Hugos and Nebulas to her name.

    Just finished Perchance To Dream by Howard Weinstein, this book was a bit simple and nowhere near as good as his other novels. Now onto Memory Prime by Garfield and Judith Reeves Stevens

    I'm reading Watching the Clock by Christopher L. Bennett (Christopher :) ) - I am really enjoying it. The discussions of temporal physics bend my brain but they are fun to try and follow. :lol:

    Horns by Joe Hill. It's really captivating so far. Will working on Children of the Storm to. Then I'm going to read The Eternal ... And then a while bunch of other stuff. My TBR pile is never going to end unless I copy myself into an android body.

    Haven't been able to make enough time to read lately, hoping to rectify that soon. Since my last post I've read Doctor Who: Tip of the Tongue and X-Wing: Rogue Squadron. I'm currently reading Doctor Who: Instruments of Darkness by Gary Russell for Colin Baker month.

    I decided I was in a comic book mood, so I started the digital version of the first collected volume of DC's Justice League Dark.
