    Yeah, I remember him saying something like that in an interview a few years back.

    The major problem is: Keeping the writing fresh, and keeping interested in the characters and zombie situation(s) when that genre may become passe.

    It'll be like General Hospital where the show started in the 60s(?) and is seemingly neverending...:lol:

    Most of the way through "The long way to a small, angry planet" by Becky Chambers.

    I'm enjoying it.

    I'm still reading The Stand by Stephen King. I figure it will take awhile.

    i'm chugging along with my 24th century reading order. I'm on TNG: Survivors. This book was alot better than i remember it being. The book really fleshed out Tasha. If the writers had done this with her, she could have been a standout TNG character.

    Jump the shark's bones?

    Anyway, here I'm almost through Perverting The Course Of Justice by "Inspector Gadget" - a pseudonymous expose of the crap that UK cops have to deal with.

    I finished reading Star Trek Voyager Atonement by Kirsten Beyer. Excellent wrap up to the previous Voyager novels. :techman::hugegrin: I'm looking forward to reading the upcoming Star trek books soon.

    Took a bit of a break from Trek Lit in the lead up to The Force Awakens. Since the summer, I've read a lot of Star Wars books and comics in their chronological order in the "new canon timeline." It was quite fun. Dark Disciple [pretty good, if a little cheesy at times], Lords of the Sith [not all that great], Tarkin [Really good!], A New Dawn [Really good, but maybe just a tad too long]. I've even read some of the YA novels that tie into Rebels which have mostly been poor to fair. (Ezra's Gamble being the best, the book I'm currently stalled out, Imperial Justice, being the worst). I've been watching the movies and tv episodes along with everything and it's been a great ride, but I'm flagging a little bit now.

    I've got Before the Awakening and The Force Awakens novelization on deck, possibly going back and forth between Deep Space Nine: Ascendance.

    Getting back into reading Star Trek quite a bit soon, but one last Star Wars read before that. I'm reading the 3 new short stories in the Rise of the Empire reprint. It's odd that the short stories aren't in chronological order with the reprinted novels, but what I've read so far is good.
