    I'm giving the SCE series a go. I've been meaning to give them a try for a while.

    Nice review- don't think I've seen it before. Or if so I'd forgotten

    As for me, I finished Secret Of Crickley Hall, and think I'll go with maybe Stephen King's Under The Dome next...

    You should, it's a lot of fun. I think in a way it felt the most like a TV show of any of the book series. It told smaller, standalone stories that tended to have character arcs that ran through several books.

    Yep, I remember thinking the same, in terms of story length and 'week to week' character development reading SCE felt a lot like watching a show, and in a good way - a bunch of people you pay a visit to once a week, sort of. It even had the occassional epic multi-parter and flashback 'episode' to shake things up. There's some really good stories there. Enjoy!

    Just finished The Eternal Tide and Tempest Wake, both good reads. Now onto Jeff Lang's TNG novel Immortal Coil, so I can be ready for David Mack's new book which is a sequel to this:)

    Pausing all my other reads to quickly read Jeffrey Lang's TNG: Immortal Coil on the advice of David Mack. As Patrick notes above, Mack's new novel is apparently a sequel to this one.

    ^Not just his new novel, but the entire Cold Equations trilogy is a followup to Immortal Coil.

    I have enjoyed them so far. I'm just starting on Immortal coil, then it'll either be Persistence of Memory or on to SCE:Interphase

    I didn't know that, either. Good to know now, so I'll can read it in advance. Immortal Coil was actually the first Star Trek novel I ever read. I remember being underwhelmed by it, so I didn't pick up reading ST again until Cross-Cult started ST:VGD in 2008.

    Immortal coil is one of my favorite novels about Data.Thanks for the information Chris.I can't wait to get these books and find out how David Mack continues the story that left off in Immortal coil.I'm reading Startrek Voyager Unworthy.I really like how Kristen writes the Voyager characters in her books.And how she expands on what happened to Seven of Nine after the Destiny Novels.I've only read a few chapters so far and really like this book alot.I also like Eden Asfrah the new Voyager Captain she's an interesting character .

    Just finished Revenge of the Sith. Excellent adaptation.

    Today I'll be starting Warriors: The New Prophecy - Sunset by Erin Hunter. I used to read the Warriors books to my daughter when she was younger, but then she reached the age where she started reading them by herself and I got left out of the story. So I figured I'd at least finish the "New Prophecy" arc on my own.

    Up on deck was going to be The Persistence of Memory, but instead I'm going to follow everyone's lead and read Immortal Coil.

    Just finished the New Frontier Mirror Universe tales. Now I have to watch DS9's "Resurrection" and "Emperor's New Cloak" before getting to the DS9 stories. I also read the Turnaround comic, which was pretty good, too. If I was a bit thrown off because I'm not up to date on the NF stories.

    Quick question: I got bit by the NF bug and was thinking of snagging the first three SF Academy books for my kindle. I got "Worf's First Adventure" but it doesn't seem any of the others are available. Am I not finding them (I note that there are multiple listings for each book.) or do they not exist? Thanks!

    Finally picking up where I left off from my 100 Great Novels list, with Thackeray's Vanity Fair. It might take the rest of the year to read, but that's okay. It'll be my 80th book in 2012. :)
