Booktastrophe


 Due to the catastrophic non-blogging strop that occurred between November 2013 and April this year (not counting the New Year blip - which, come to think about it, was actually about not blogging), I thought I'd better update my "books read" list. As before, this post is a reminder for myselves - you don't have to take much notice of it.

(the end of) 2013

 30. Saga (volume two), by Brian K Vaughan & Fiona Staples
 31. The Crimson Shadow (Star Trek: The Fall), by Una McCormack
 32. Star Trek: Alien Spotlight Volume 1, by Scott & David Tipton, James Patrick, Andrew Steven Harris, Paul D. Storrie, and John Byrne
 33. Star Trek: Alien Spotlight Volume 2, by Arne & Andy Schmidt, Keith R. A. DeCandido, Scott & David Tipton, Ian Edgington, and Stuart Moore
 34. Star Trek: Captain's Log, by Stuart Moore, Scott & David Tipton, Marc Gussenheim, and Keith R. A. DeCandido
 35. Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library, by Larry Nemecek

2014

 1. The Woman Who Died A Lot, by Jasper Fforde
 2. Protectors (Star Trek: Voyager), by Kirsten Beyer
 3. Absent Enemies (Star Trek: Titan), by John Jackson Miller
 4. Peaceable Kingdoms (Star Trek: The Fall), by Dayton Ward
 5. The Long Earth, by Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter
 6. Not the Royal Wedding, edited by Sean Hardie & John Lloyd
 7. Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel (Star Trek: Enterprise), by Christopher L. Bennett 
 8. Saga (volume three), by Brian K Vaughan & Fiona Staples
 9. The Man Who Folded Himself, by David Gerrold
 10. After The Golden Age, by Carrie Vaughn 

And still to come:
 ~ The Bumper Book of Dinosaurs, by Keiron Pim
 This is a lovely book that I bought for myself for Christmas. I also bought copies for Babyzilla and The Father, signed by the author of course. After all, You're not the only one who knows people who write books, Tim!
 ~ Federation: The First 150 Years, by David A. Goodman
 A birthday present from that certain media-whore blogger that I've yet to finish. The book that is, not the blogger (although not for the want of trying, mores the pity).
 ~ Rising Son (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), by S. D. Perry
 A book I borrowed off a friend years ago and have now, eventually, purchased a copy for myself. After all, I love me some DS9!

  1. Thank you for the reminder about Not The Royal Wedding, I must order that one! Maybe the dinosaur book, too.

  2. How did you like The Long Earth? I thought it was a lot of interesting ideas that didn't add up to much.

  3. LX: I got my copy of NTRW for about 60p off Amazon - I don't think its sold as new anymore. I definitely recommend it. You don't even need to have any knowledge of the 80s Royal Family.

    Hello Peenee. I think I know what you mean. I did really enjoy it, but then I don't always need a story that particularly goes anywhere.
    I wondered if the bits that didn't involve Joshua and Lobsang were just asides until they did get linked to the main story. I'm thinking that maybe the second book will bring it all together more. Have you read it?

  6. I have ordered The Eryre Affair... thought I'd better start at the beginning. I read the first preview page and decided I wanted to read more!
    Thank you!
    Sx

  7. Sadly not 'Petra. I'm hoping for some quite soon as I don't know how much more of this dry patch I can take!

    Ms Scarlet: You're welcome!

    I haven't actually read any of the others, although I will be. I picked up TWWDAL in a local bookshop completely judging it by its cover, and I wasn't disappointed!

  10. Well, there does seem to be an inordinate amount of Star Trek, Savvy, so I don't blame you.
    I really need to broaden my reading horizons.
