Star Trek: Terok Nor: Night of the Wolves
By S.D. Perry


Second book in the trilogy, set 18 years into the Cardassian occupation of Bajor. Some familiar faces start cropping up: Kira, Ro, and a host of other characters who appeared on DS9. We spend a lot more time with Dukat, and I'm still waitng for Garak to show up. There have been some encounters with the Obsidian Order, but none of the agents are named or really described, so I'm reading just about all of them with Garak's voice.

The Gates
By John Connolly


This one reminded me very much of Good Omens (in a good way). I love how Connolly brought the LHC into the story, and how he made demons terrifying yet not invulnerable.



No classics this time, dropping me down to 33.33% classics for the year so far.

Happy To Be Here
By Garrison Keillor


If you enjoy NPR's A Prairie Home Companion you'll enjoy this collection of short stories.

The Whiskey Rebels
By David Liss

Set shortly after the American Revolution, Washington is president, Hamilton has formed the Bank of the United States, and the nation is a fragile place. A wronged woman from the west and a disgraced intelligence officer work to shape the fate of the new nation each in their own way. This is a very well written book, though the story didn't really grab me until about half way though. That asks a lot since it is 525 pages long. But once it got going, I had trouble putting it down. If you have any interest at all in the early years of the USA then you'll enjoy this.



I'm currently reading The Phantom of the Opera and I'll be starting The Dunwich Horror after that - both on the Kindle.

Kris Longknife: Undaunted
By Mike Shepherd

I really love this series... the next one isn't out till the fall. :-(

English Passengers
By Matthew Kneale

Letters, journal entries, and ships logs tell the tale of an unlikely voyage from the British Isles to Tazmania and back, looking for the Garden of Eden. I highly recommend it. It's funny, really well written, and a great book to read in short snippets, except that you'll just want to keep going!
