the golem and the jinn by helene wecker
That's a great book. Possibly my favorite this year.
Just finished the Titan novel, Typhon Pact: "Seize the Fire". I actually enjoyed it. A pleasant surprise as I had heard it wasn't very good.
Starting Gene Roddenberry's "Star Trek The Motion Picture" novel today. I have "Ex Machina" and "Fallen Gods" on the way.
I just finished reading The mystery of Cloomber by Arthur Conan Doyle it's a really interesting Scottish mystery novel and a Tos novel The Fearful Summons by Denny Martin Flynn.Right now I'm reading a new Doctor Who novel Beautiful Chaos.
I'm so, so sorry. Congratulations for surviving what is arguably the absolute worst novel in Trek publishing history.
Published my review of the book Fan Phenomena: Star Trek, a collection of articles about Star Trek fandom.
Now I'm finishing up The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood, and picked up Imzadi by Peter David for the first time in years. Just kind of had an urge to re-read it, you know?
Reading for the first time Greg Cox's books The Rise And Fall Of Noonien Singh and To Reign In Hell. Halfway through book one of the Rise... So far loving it. This is the kind of backstory Khan needed on film.
Thanks I certainly didn't care for this story it was really had disappointing storyarcs for all the tos characters. I felt the same about the Folded world book too.
Just about the start Only Superhuman.
I'm getting ready to start Second Shift - Order by Hugh Howey.
Broken Window by Jeffrey Deaver, part of the Lincoln Rhyme series.
I recently read the first Silo omnibus, Star Trek: The Fall: Revelation and Dust, and the first two volumes in the Babylon 5 mirror universe by Gareth Williams.
Just googled that, it sounds amazing!!!
In the mean time, thanks to a great deal, I've got 20 secondhand Trek novels, including the entire A Time To series. Finished the first two. Not that great, John Vornholt isn't my favorite writer. But I knew before I bought them that the general view of ATT is hit and miss, so we'll see.
Just finished Vanguard: Declassified and started What Judgements Come.
I added the third collection of the first Star Wars: Legacy comic book series, Claws of The Dragon to my reading rotation.
Not Trek but my first James Swallow book. Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect.
Finished The Horse With My Name by Colin Bateman. A not bad blackly-comic crime romp, but had a really weirdly nasty torture scene about three-quarters through which would have been fine in a gritty and nasty crime story, but just didn't fit with the tone of the rest of the book, if you see what I mean.
I'm reading Dust, the last book in the Wool/Silo series by Hugh Howey.
The Escape (VOY #2) by Dean Smith and Katherine Rauch
Gone for Soldiers by Jeff Shaara
Over the last week, I finished:
Warped by K.W. Jeter
The Romulan Stratagem (TNG #35) by Robert Greenberger
Warped was surprisingly disappointing and just really didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. However, The Romulan Stratagem made up for that with an excellent mystery story and a very unexpected ending, although the subplot with Ensign Ro felt tacked-on and unnecessary.
Finished up TOS #48 Rules of Engagement and TNG: Day of Honor: Ancient Blood.
Both were meh.
