    I finished Star Trek: The Folded World by Jeff Mariotte the other day.

    I then read the Supernatural comic trade paperback, Beginning's End.

    Today I started Stargate SG-1: Relativity by James Swallow.

    I started Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo today. So far, it's cute.

    Just started Forgotten History - I really liked Watching the Clock, so this was an easy choice for next book to get from the library. Very enjoyable so far :)

    Just posted my review of Christopher L. Bennett's Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures. Very much enjoyed that one!

    Reading two books at the moment: The Duchess Ranch of Old John Ware by James Davidge and Bob Prodor, and Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta by Aritha van Herk.

    My memories of Spectre are pretty hazy. It didn't impress me much when it aired -- I think I was 17 at the time. I have the novelization, but as with something like 10,000 other books in my collection, I've never gotten around to reading it.

    Picked up an old movie tie-in edition of LOGAN'S RUN at a used bookstore the other day (for only two bucks!). Looking forward to reading it again for the first time in decades.

    You'll be needing the follow up as well then. Logans World ?

    After finishing the excellent ENT: A Choice of Futures by Christopher, i've moved back to my pile of unread comics until Shocks of Adversity comes in from Amazon....

    And the fairly dreadful third book, Logan's Search.

    On second thought, just skip the sequels.

    I have vague memories of reading the second book way back when. Not sure I ever caught up with the third.

    (True story: I briefly considered buying the rights to those books for Tor back when Bryan Singer was talking about remaking LOGAN, but then that project disappeared into limbo . . . .)

    Looking at the prices on Amazon UK maybe you should have !

    I didn't even know there was a third book, but having read the summary on Wiki I don't think I've missed out...

    I read A Rock and A Hard Place yesterday by Peter David. I feel like the Quinton Stone character was a little too cliche but I like his interactions with Worf and Troi.

    Halfway through Saratoga as of today. This book reads strangely similar to TNG Reunion which was also by Friedman.

    Finished up The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
    I rated it a 4/5. I'm really looking forward to the movie coming out next month.
    Once I finished that, I jumped right into Magic Burns, the second book in the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series.

    I finished Stargate SG-1: Relativity by James Swallow earlier today. The book has a few twists I liked, including the reappearance of an old enemy. Of the SG-1 novels I've read (The Price You Pay, The First Amendment, Four Dragons, and Sunrise) this is by far the best. Of course, having enjoyed everything else I've read by Swallow, that's not surprising.

    I'm now about to start the first story in the New Frontier: No Limits anthology, "Mackenzie Calhoun: Loose Ends".

    I read the New Frontier: No Limits Calhoun story, Loose Ends, last night. Today I read the Shelby story, All That Glisters..., followed by the Kebron story, Waiting for G'Doh, or How I Learned to Stop Moving and Hate People.

    I'm now about to start Star Trek: The Shocks of Adversity by William Leisner.
