    Mr. Swallow, I was extremely happy to see how you handled the Klingon prospective in this novel and must say that I was quite happy. I would love to see a follow up that follows Azetbur through her chancellorship and into the next.

    loved the interview, even if...and dont hate me terri...synthesis was one of the hardest novels for me to get through.

    truthfully i was more hoping for further coverage of his terok nor novel, especially with the new characters that he introduces. also, some insight into other areas of the ds9 universe that led to the occupation would always be a plus.

    but, love the work yall do with the podcast, even if i have to carve out 2 1/2 hours for each episode...its worth it.

    I would never hate you! I have the utmost respect for the opposing points of view. Remember - I work with Nick! He and I RARELY agree!! *hugs Nick*

    Glad you make time for us. Yes, we tend to ramble and chase squirrels. We keep trying not to, but I don't think we're capable of it!

    Serpents Among the Ruins deals with the end of Azetbur's reign as Chancellor and the beginning of her successor, Kaarg's, reign. And we then continue through his reign and into the next Chancellor, Ditagh's, in The Art of the Impossible.

    Thanks JD, I haven't read Serpents and it's been quite a while for Art of the Impossible. Will be picking up Serpents Promptly, Thanks Again.

    You definitely need to read Serpents if you haven't. It's an amazing book.

    Just finished, Thank you, it was very enjoyable. Is there a follow up to the Harriman story? Starting to reread the Art of the Impossible now.
