    Shows how opinions can differ, I guess. I just finished The Peacekeepers as well and loved it, 4/5.

    It's an especially impressive achievement in context, because it was written when TNG hadn't even aired yet, yet shows a surprisingly good feel for the characters, e.g. by pairing up Geordi and Data.

    The Geordi-Data pairing was specified in the series bible.

    Finished Neverwhere - finally. Also read Divergent by Veronica Roth and The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau. I've given up on Stirling for now. Moving on to The People of Sparks, the sequel to The City of Ember.

    Currently re-reading "Misery" by Stephen King. Pretty messed up at points, but King sure knows how to write.

    Next in my chronological Trek read-through is: Assignment Eternity by Greg Cox!

    Quickly read "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddon (2003) and during this time I read "Ex Machina" by Christopher L. Bennett (2005). This TOS novel is very good. The plausibility structure has been ratcheted up to new heights. The characters have been given a just treatment. I also just read "King John" by Shakespeare in preparation for going to Bard-on-the-Beach behind the Space Center at Kits (Kitsilano) Beach in Vancouver. Currently reading the missed early TOS book "Mutiny on the Enterprise" (TOS #12) by Robert E. Vardeman (1983). For non-fiction, reading "Joining Together" (5th ed.) by D.W. Johnson & F.P. Johnson (1994) which is an albeit old but good introduction to working with groups (which actually may say something about ship crews too).

    Stayed up real late last night to finish out A Time for War, A Time For Peace. Really enjoyed it. It's a nice coda to the A Time To... novels and a great "epilogue" to the TNG Movie Era, as well. The close ties of Hate/Kill/WarPeace really makes it feel like a united story arc, something missing from the first 6 books. My only real complaint about the book is that it feels like was written to be two books, but then got reduced into one. It moves fast, but a lot feels like it happens off-page. Still really enjoyable though.

    I'm going to give the few short stories in Sky's the Limit set after Nemesis a read, and then Riker's Captain's Table tale. After that I'm going to take a little break from TrekLit for a bit, as I've been pretty much laser focused on it for the past year or so.

    I think before getting into the Post-Nemesis TrekLit Universe, I may do a chronological read through of the recent Mirror Universe stuff - along with the 3 DS9 books - as that's a nice bit of reading, but fairly contained.

    I literally just finished the fifth The Dresden Files book, Death Masks, a couple minutes before logging on. I loved it, I thought it was one of the best books in the series so far.
    My Selfari rating: 5/5
    I started the last STTOS: Mere Anarchy novella, Its Hour Come Round by Margaret Wander Bonnano.

    British crime month for me.Zipping through the Tom Thorne series by Mark Billingham.
    The character has made it to the small screen recently with Thorne being played by Dr. Who alumnus David Morrisey but I can only visualize Tim Roth in the role.:techman:

    I changed my mind after posting, this. I've decided to change to STVOY: Children of the Storm instead. I've been hearing people rave about it since it first came out, so I'm really looking forward to it.
