Now I'm reading Kolchak The Night Stalker: Compendium.
I've been tearing threw lots of old Star Wars comics on Marvel Unlimited. I'm so glad to have all those available to read any time I want.
^Do you mean the original Marvel Star Wars run that came out in the late '70s and early '80s? I still have most of my collection of that, which are the only SW tie-ins I own. (Some years back, I sold off a number of the weaker fill-in issues, so it's not an entirely comprehensive run.)
Well not that old. I'm actually mostly reading the Dark Horse Star Wars series which started around '99. I first read them about 10 years ago and since they're so readily available, I figured I'd go through them again.
Once I read through all the Dark Times era Legends comics and novels, I will be reading that original Marvel series.
Oh, I see. Disney owns Star Wars and Marvel now, so Marvel put the Dark Horse comics up on their digital thingie. Right?
Yes. A huge chunk of both Marvel and Dark Horse's Star Wars comics are now on Marvel Unlimited. And the new Marvel comics should start being released there in a few weeks. I'll probably be keeping my Marvel Unlimited subscription on a semi regular basis now. This is the most cost effective way for me to read the new stuff, since I don't mind being a few months behind.
I'm reading Lashup by Larry Bond at the moment.
Next up the new Trek novel, Armageddon's Arrow
I finished reading Star trek Voyager Homecoming by Christie Golden . I thought the story line about te characters Homecomings was well written and I look forward to reading the Farther shore sometime.
Dayton Ward's Armageddon's Arrow arrived via Amazon today and so will be starting that this evening. Excited!
i'm still chugging away on Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn, reading the post-Nemesis books. But in the last few days, my reading interest has shifted back to my publication read-thru of all the trek books. Technically i'm on Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. But i held back on reading II and III novelizations, so i could read all 3 as one complete trilogy of books. Yes, i know reading them in publication order will take quite a long time. I love all the expansion Vonda McIntyre did with the Wrath of Khan novelization. Especially with Peter Preston and Saavik. She truly made Khan a frightening individual with the additional scenes set on Regulus I.
Finished out Takedown. Pretty good all told, perhaps could have been pared down a bit. But a good romp.
I very quickly worked through Jesus' Son by Denis Johnson. A great collection of short stories about addiction, really interesting style.
And Armageddon's Arrow just arrived so that and Nimona are up next.
Just finished Tower of Babel and am starting Uncertain Logic.
I've read 2 stories so far in Star Trek SCE Wounds. I really like the fact the first 2 stories take place on Ds9 and Bajor. The ds9 crew in the stories are Kira, Jadzia Dax , Ro Laren , Quark and Nog.Also Elias Vaughn appears briefly too.
Assignment Eternity by Greg Cox - that was fun, though I'd still love see more explanation and use made of Isis's human form. (I'd love to do stuff with Isis the cat myself, actually, but that'd require regime change at S&S, so...)
A great novel. I've virtually assimilated this book.
Thanks, folks. Bringing back Seven and Roberta (and Isis) was always one of my big goals when it came to writing Trek. Assignment: Eternity was actually my third stab at getting a "Return of Gary Seven" outline approved, after a couple of previous proposals fell through.
Speaking of Isis . . . At one point, I wanted to turn Roberta into a cat-woman, too, except that she would turn into a blonde tabby instead of a black cat. But my editor, John Ordover, wisely vetoed that idea.
Probably a good call!
This could still happen. Roberta running into Q ...... Better not, I would think.
I finished Dayton Ward's fantastic Armageddon's Arrow yesterday and have started Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey. The next Trek book I hope to read will be DRGIII's Sacraments of Fire.
Just started with Across the Universe (TOS) by Pamela Sargent & George Zebrowski.
I'm reading Imzadi Forever.
