    I just picked up my copy of A Pocket Full Of Lies at Coles. It's funny, I just pre-ordered the book last Friday, and within a week I've got the book. Fast service.

    Anyway, the cover is real impressive on the physical copy.

    Still busy with Section 31 - Disavowed. Yet I'm looking forward to finally get my hands on the new Voyager adventure. I have to wait for several more days until it is available in Germany.

    I didn't think this was out till April so haven't ordered it yet, but just did so on Amazon and I'm looking forward to it.

    Technically I think the release date for the book is January 29, so more places should be getting it soon.

    Just finished the Prologue. Pretty good so far!

    I just noticed, but the spine has the fiftieth anniversary logo at the bottom, which, as far as I can remember and see there was no official logo for the 40th, but the 30th was pretty nice (just pulled out my copy of "Flashback" and it's got the 30th Star Trek Generations logo on the back). I think I like the 30th logo better than the 50th, but the 50th, being on the spine, will look interesting on my shelf.

    I'm up to Chapter 8, and in regards to what the cover copy says, I never expected this book to be based on this one episode. So this book is throwing a few curve balls.

    The episode this book is based off of is "Shattered" from Season 7, plus there are references to the events and races mentioned or seen in "Year Of Hell".

    Was perusing through my local Chapters and saw this on the shelf. I was pretty surprised, as it's two weeks early! I'll have to put aside DRG3's Ascendance for a few days :techman:

    I can't believe we're off and running this early. I thought it would be at least another week before anyone had this in their hands. Ah well...enjoy and as always, I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts.

    Best,

    Kirsten, before everyone gets too deep into talking about A Pocket Full of Lies, I had a question about Atonement that never got answered in the previous thread which I hope you can shed some light on.

    Someone else in the discussion about Atonement mentioned where they visualized the Confederacy being geographically in the Delta Quadrant. It didn't match were I had in my head during the time spent reading the trilogy. I assumed it was quite a bit "off the beaten track" in the "southern" third and "eastern" third of the quadrant. Basically between Borg space and the farther reaches of the Beta Quadrant. Did you have a particular location In the quadrant in mind when describing distances between the Confederacy and New Talax for example?

    Thanks as always for being a part of this community! I really look forward to devouring APFOL.

    I was surprised when it was in at the book store, as I thought I would only be picking up "Ascendance". And so far it seems only Canada has got an early release.

    I'm half way through, and loving it. I'm amazed that we've been able to get 8 Voyager books in the last 6.5 years, and all by the the same author. I hope we get more and more Voyager from you in the future. I'll let you know what I thought after I've finished. Hopefully you are hard at work on the next installment :techman:

    I've got a copy in the post, so it's time for:

    Re-read of Volumes 1-2

    Then plowing through the rest - which will be new!

    I definitely have enjoyed reading the Voyager books by Kirsten Beyer. I really liked Atonement I just finished reading it a few days ago. I can't wait to read A pocket full of lies.:biggrin::hugegrin:

    Not that I know of. All of the e-book retailers, or at least the ones I'm familiar with, wait to release stuff on the dates listed by the publisher.

    Ordered mine at my bookstore today - will give me time to finish Ascension and Child of Two Worlds. So many books - so little time - what a wonderful problem to have!

    I'm still busy with Section 31 Disavowed. So I can wait for it a little longer.... As you said, so little time....
