    Juvenile. This is why most Trek novels will never be considered to be anything more than adventure stories for adolescents. Diane Duane and Margaret Wander Bonnano did not stoop to such inane antics. Let’s support serious Trek literature, not cheap jokes for the people “living in their mothers’ basements”.

    From this statement, it's pretty easy to make some wide sweeping generalisations about your world view.

    No one’s forcing you to buy or read any of it.

    Apology not accepted. You're really posting something like that here? This is one of the last places I would have expected to get this kind of fucking bullshit from someone.

    I don't really understand the implications behind their remark, it does seem rather childlike and immature though and completely counter to the air of superiority they're trying to give off.

    It might be more of an American thing, but it's basically calling me a loser nerd.

    So I was correct in understanding it, childlike and immature.

    He's insulting a fellow poster. ORIGINALVIEWER is being disrespectful.

    I own all of those, but haven't actually gotten around to reading any of them.

    Thank you for the information. Duane is now on my shit list and her books will be donated to a nearby shelter for homeless bums.

    I seem to have annoyed some of you and I apologize. I’ll just go away and come back later.

    I have decided to read Bukowski and Orwell instead, rather than adolescent fiction. Thank you for your comment.

    It’s a joke. Why so sensitive?

    I’m also going back to Jules Verne, the Homer Of The Teenagers. That man could write!

    I wouldn’t call it lazy. How about you try writing a book and coming up with 40 or 50 names for characters. You can’t call everyone “Smith” or “Jones”.

    It takes immensely less work to insult a book than it takes to write one.

    I’d like to see you try Garis-Appleton and McFarlane-Dixon, and maybe Benson-Keene.
