    Currently on "Crisis of Consciousness" by Dave Galanter and also non-Trek fantasy "This Sceptered Isle" by Merecedes Lackey and a coauthor whose name escapes me at the moment.

    I forgot to mention that after Enigma Tales I read the comic TPB of Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ghosts.

    I finished reading Sowed to death by Peg Cochran I thought it was areally god mystery novel. I also read Ghost of the grand Banks by Author C. Clarke, I also started reading Taking of the Titanic by Slaven. It's a really interesting historical mystery taking place on the Titanic. during it's fateful voyage.

    What did you think of it? It's one of the last Trek comics on Comixology I haven't read, so I've been thinking about checking it out.
    I forgot the Dresden Files book when I went to work early yesterday, so I ended up finishing the Farscape miniseries. It was a great continuation of the series, and I liked what the end did for Rygel.

    I thought it was pretty good. Out of some of the other IDW TNG series that I've read (The Space Between and Intelligence Gathering), I enjoyed this much more. I think it helps that it is all just one story, unlike the others which were standalones that (I think) tied together at the end.

    Cool, I might go ahead and check it out than. I didn't mind the interconnected standalones, but I definitely prefer it when they're one story.

    Finished off Enigma Tales and have decided to try and dive back into the original DS9 relaunch with Mission Gamma: This Gray Spirit by Heather Jarman. My attention waned last time, so hopefully it grabs me more this time :)

    I started re-reading Q-Squared by Peter David. I like this book it's been along time since I read it.

    That is actually my least favorite of the Mission Gamma books. When I read it I just had to force my way through it. In my opinion the next two are better, but much shorter if I remember correctly.

    I just got back online and was gonna say that I changed my mind. I just CAN'T get into This Grey Spirit. I decided to start reading my "Lost on an Island" book, Una's The Never-Ending Sacrifice. I was going to read it once I finished off the other original DS9 relaunch books, but after reading Enigma Tales last week, and after finishing Hollow Men a few months ago, I've decided I can't wait any longer. If anyone wants to give me a good overview of TGS, I'll jump back into Mission Gamma afterwards. I want to get through the rest of the DS9-R by end of the year if possible. Memory Beta's synopsis of TGS is not very extensive...

    I think I'm one of the few people who actually likes Heather Jarman's Trek books.

    Hm, I guess I'll have to give up on that endless Peter F Hamilton book (Pandora's Star) after all, and find something else to read - mainly because, in moving stuff around and packing for the big SCA camping do at Raglan, my wife has disappeared it...(I last saw it in the bathroom at the weekend, and it's not there now...)

    ETA - Oh wait, yeah, as soon as I posted that then I found it - wrapped up in a dressing gown. I'm still not even half way in, and tempted to find a suitable chapter to stop at as a cliffhanger just so I can read something else for variety...
