Me neither. That will be quite a list to read
Nearing the end of The Wounded Sky. And the Narnia parallels are even more striking than I'd anticipated.
Finished THRILLING ADVENTURES YARNS 2021. Just started TURNING THE TIED, an anthology of stories featuring public-domain characters, published as a fundraiser for the World Literacy Fund. (Full disclosure: I donated a story to the cause, but I'm looking forward to reading all the other contributions, featuring characters like Sherlock Holmes, Sinbad, Ayesha, and others . . . . )
The novellas are mostly around 100 pages, so it's not as bad as it sounds.
If you want to really be a completist, there are also at least two short stories, one in Tales of the Domion War, and one in Tales From the Captains Table.
There was also supposed to be a Mirror Universe novella, that was supposed to go along with either the first two MU books or Shards and Shadows, but I don't think that one ever got beyond the planning stages.
Ford's How Much for Just the Planet?
Somebody on another board was reading it (in e-book form), on my own recommendation, and complaining about the comic timing being off. I don't see any comic timing problems.
Started ST: The Lost Era 2360: Catalyst of Sorrows by Margaret Wander Bonnano. I've had this sitting in my Google Books account for a while now, and her death last month finally inspired to me read it.
I was going to write a Mirror Universe S.C.E. story that would tie into the ongoing MU stuff in the print books, but they went and cancelled the eBook line, so that never happened.
Bodies and bows by Elizabeth Penney
I've been on a role recently with Trek Litverse. I've gotten through the Destiny trilogy, TNG Losomg the Peace and a Singular Destiny. Now I'm starting Titan Over a Torrent Sea. I thought of holding off on the Kristen Beyer Voyager books until later.
Finished The Grishaverse trilogy and started on Firefly:Life Signs by James Lovegrove.
Bridget Jones's Diary, by Helen Fielding (because I fancied a light bit of fluff).
I've just had a thought: I'd love to see a Star Trek take on BJD - I think Lower Decks, with Boimler as Bridget would work a treat!
It’s been a long time since I last posted, so I’m not going to list everything I’ve read since then.
The last book I read was Star Trek: Picard: The Dark Veil by James Swallow.
I’m currently re-reading Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Never-Ending Sacrifice by Una McCormack.
Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan
Star Trek The Motion Picture: Inside the Art & Visual Effects - Fascinating!
Space Station Down by Ben Bova
Big little spies by Krista Davis
Finished Wonderlands by Una McCormack (Enjoyed it) and am on to Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir (So far, writing is more like The Martian than some of his others). Liking it so far.
I've been in a comic book mood the last few days, so I decided to take a break from Catalyst of Sorrows, and I borrowed Batman Vol. 4: Year Zero - Secret City from Hoopla and started reading it this afternoon. It's written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with art by Greg Capullo, Danny Miki, and Rafael Albuquerque.
I've been wanting to get Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. I'll be interested in what you thought of the story after you finish reading it.
Currently at about 80 percent of it and it's been very enjoyable. I think I still prefer The Martian but it's been (imho) a good read.
Some way into it, there is a bit of a large game changer in, but the way it's written is interesting (and funny in parts).
