    I finished Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming the other day.

    I then read the Star Trek: The Next Generation comic, Hive.

    I'm now reading Star Trek: The Klingon Art of War by KRAD.

    I started Bloodlines by Richelle Mead yesterday. So far, I'm really enjoying it. It is set in the Vampire Academy universe.

    I just finished Stephen King's "Mr Mercedes". It's awesome!

    On to the next Cardassian-themed Una McCormack novel. Yay! I love me some Cardies.

    Voyager #8 Cybersong - Totally forgettable. There was some business where they left some crew member we never saw before behind as an Ambassador and I thought hey, they thought of that before they left Neelix behind in the series then I remembered they did that in TOS with The Corbomite Maneuver so never mind.

    Voyager #10 Bless the Beasts - Probably the worst edited ST book I've read so far, well, except for the books that were accidentally totally mangled in the editing process. They talk about "Seskia". Kim and Paris are missing for 2 days, then it's 12 hours. They take off there uniforms to get in some scuba type gear or something then later on they magically have the uniforms back. And the plot. Ugh. Paris and Kim are lost at sea for 2 days. The planet's leaders daughter is missing for 2 days. Paris and Kim and an unknown female are rescued. Doesn't occur to anybody this might be the missing daughter. The Doctor comes up with a cure for a plague that's killing off the entire population. In about an hour. From meat Neelix had sitting out. The sensors can't tell the difference between humans and the aliens but they can find Paris because of some residue left in a scar he got in some rescue attempt years go that's never mentioned before or since. And B'elanna is able to fix everything that was wrong with the ship using what was considered waste residue from impure metal before on the final couple pages of the book. What a mess. The worst of the numbered Voyagers yet and that's saying something.

    Eight more of these to go and I'm done...

    I'm reading The Buried Age, and its really good so far. I thought it was cool to hear some details about the Stargazer that I'm pretty sure were fan ideas (like the "warp coasting", and the ship having a bunch of shuttlebays). The new plant obsessed alien species is pretty interesting so far, too.

    I'm reading New Frontier: Being Human. Finally seeing Mark McHenry's backstory is very interesting.

    I'm on to The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer. I think it's great. There's Q's and series characters that return and all sorts of great, entertaining stuff. As always, the author does a great job with the characters and dialogue, the action flows smoothly, and I'm enjoying every sentence.

    Cambridge is still a d-head, but a good character. I guess naming him Hugh was acknowledgement of the House ripoff. He might be more fun if he was addicted to vicodin but maybe that would make it TOO obvious. Or maybe he is, and just better at hiding it.

    I'm currently reading Vanguard's Harbinger. It's pretty good so far. I like the setting, the characters, and the overall mystery.

    "Final Frontier" was unexpectedly good. Tantalizingly interesting details seem about to be added at times to the Trekscape. It might well not be entirely canon, but what is these days? It is among the large number of better novels in TOS. Out of 10: Perhaps an 8. Good preparation for later books too.
