    In many different universes, simultaneously.
    I agree that some fanfic is outrageously priced - especially when some of the stuff people are asking $50 for is actually available for free if you know where to look.

    There is a little bit of Darkover fanfic on fanfiction.net. Some is in English, some in French, some in German, and some in Portuguese. I'm actually prepared to learn Portuguese if I have to, because I really want to read those stories! I've found other stories elsewhere - one of them an extremely explicit alternate scenario of how Regis and Danilo dealt with Dyan Ardais. It's not remotely compatible with the novels, but I suppose it could have happened that way if MZB hadn't been essentially writing the overarching story from both ends, 40 years apart.

    Aside from a few continuity glitches, I thoroughly enjoyed Hastur Lord, and the latest novel (Children of Kings) manages to take another look at the Dry Towns without the requisite "Dry-Towners-are-terrible-and-irredeemable-misogynists" take.

    If you like, I can PM you a list of what I've found and links, if you'll do me the return favor. :)

    It isn't.


    Actually the last two segments of Declassified do move the story forward from the last book, especially the concluding tale, which is a very, very critical part of "the big story." And the first two stories flesh out character background that's relevant to what follows.

    I'm on the DS9 book Time's Enemy from the Invasion series. This book is a bit of a departure from the other two and it is a pretty science heavy read but I have found it to be the most enjoyable of the series. Looking forward to how they plan on ending this crossover in the Voyager book.

    Only halfway through, but I'm really enjoying Full Circle. And Sweet Mithras...

    I had heard it mentioned Lyssa Cambell met the most ignominious of ends, but I was not expecting something quite so... visceral!

    After nearly two years not reading any Star Trek books, I just got back to it and finished the last two Vanguard novels. It's sad that this amazing series is over, but I'm really looking forward to next year's start of the Seekers series and hope it's an the same high level. Meanwhile, I have a lot of 24th century stuff to catch up on. So far, I've only read the first book of the Typhon Pact crossover, so there is quite some reading ahead of me :)

    I've just started Bruce by Peter Ames Carlin. It is probably the sixth or seventh Springsteen book I've read and I've learned a lot of new stuff in the first thirty pages !

    I haven't read so many Trek book the recent time but I decided to re-read "The Black Shore" and "Marooned" by Christie Golden because they are so good!

    Just read issue #30 of DC's first TOS series, and issue #13 of their TNG series. But comics had a great story, but the art in them continues to bug the hell out of me.

    Yeah, I didn't think DC's TNG comic had good art until the final 10 issues, when Gordon Purcell and Terry Pallot took over. As for DC Vol. 1 #30, that had Carmine Infantino pencilling, and he's one of the all-time legends of comics art, but he didn't do so well at TV adaptations. He was the regular artist on DC's V series around the same time, and I never cared for his work there, since the characters never looked much like they did on the show.

    A few days ago I finished the Burgoyne story, "Oil and Water" by Robert T. Jeschonek, from New Frontier: No Limits. I then read the McHenry story, "Singularity" by Christina F. York, and the Arex story, "The Road to Edos" by Kevin Dilmore.

    I'm now reading Star Trek: Enterprise: Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Christopher L. Bennett.
