    A Burning House was the final novel in the KE/INS Gorkon series. Klag has a small role in A Singular Destiny, which does offer updates on a few other characters, but I think that was the last we've seen of the IKS Gorkon characters.

    Yes :(

    A Burning House being the last KE book is one of Treklit's great injustices!

    I started "Cast No Shadow" by James Swallow yesterday. Didn't read much yet, but an intriguing opening :)

    Just posted my review of Rising Son by S.D. Perry, the latest in my (very slow) re-read of the DS9 "relaunch."

    Just finishing up Acts of Contrition, and then going to read Q Are Cordially Uninvited....

    Finished the Gemworld books and read Latinum's Lust Lost (and Found), and probably on to the Genesis Wave books next, and then IKS Gorkon.

    I put the breaks on reading the post-nemesis stuff. I'm back on my chronological read-thru, which I've now been working on the last few years, beginning with the "Encounter at Farpoint" novelization. ive been using this site: http://killie-booktalk.blogspot.com/p/star-trek-reading-challenge.html to read the books in chronological order.
    So I'm currently on DS9 "Emissary." So far, not a bad novelization. I do like how JM Dillard expanded on the Picard/Sisko scene.

    I finished Stargate SG-1: Ouroboros by Melissa Scott. It wasn't bad, but I feel like it could have been 2/3 the length. The premise is interesting, but I found the story kind of boring and I'm not certain why because there is a good amount of action. Aside from the story feeling a little too long and maybe some pacing issues, I can't say why I didn't enjoy it more. I would give it a 3 out of 5.

    I'm now re-reading Star Trek: SCE: Fatal Error by KRAD.

    That was one of the best books I have read this year. I heard at one point that it might be made into a movie.

    A movie is currently in the works and will probably happen sooner rather than later.

    Civilisation, Kenneth Clark and The Roots of American Order, Russell Kirk. I'm pacing myself to go through the same time periods with both authors at the same time. Right now we're in the Reformation.

    The movie, which stars Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain, and is being directed by Ridley Scott, is coming out Nov. 25, 2015. I haven't read the book, but I'm a fan of Scott and Damon, so the announcements about it caught my attention.

    I started ST:TNG: Cold Equations: Silent Weapons during my break at work.

    I've read the prequel and it was okay: 3 out of 5.

    After finishing "Cast No Shadow" (awesome! I liked how Valeris was developed, and presented :)), I'm re-reading "Millenium". Still on book 1.

    After that I'll read a Polish novel written in 1930s about a moron, who made a political career. An old book, but still applies to the real life ;)

    Finally got around to starting the Garak book written by Andrew Robinson, A Stitch in Time. I'm a pretty fast reader so I'll most likely finish it today.

    I saw in the Nook bookstore there is also the Lives of Dax book. How is that?? Was thinking of downloading it.

    It's fantastic, in my opinion the best Trek short story collection ever released. Highly recommended.

    Stitch In Time is great!

    I've started Kirsten Beyer's Acts of Contrition and I'm really excited. Due to an expired debit card that is finally renewed, I haven't been able to pick up any new e-books for a couple weeks.

    Joel - The Tripod books that take place in the White Mtns of New Hampshire, published sometime in the 80's? If so, EXCELLENT. I might need to reread those myself, as I grew up there. They definitely made an impression on me as a developing reader when I first read them in 3rd-4th grade. I bet I would get a lot more out of them now.

    Also I have a new kitten.
