Legacies: Book #3: Purgatory's Key by Dayton WardMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This was the third in the "legacies" trilogy that I started reading this past summer. Fun book. I wouldn't say that the TOS crew is "my" crew (was introduced to Star Trek with TNG), but it was a fun novel to listen to (audiobook format), and it does give a bit more background into "number 1" (Majel Barrett's character

Best Defense by David MackMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting continuation of Captain-to-Captain. I was unaware McCoy had any kids. Fascinating - as Spock would say. I find this alternate universe quite interesting. No hunger, no pain, no being tired...is it all in their minds? I know that Star Trek has explored the mirror universe (well, they just scratched the surface), but it would
Now that's some fallout!

Late last week CBS and Paramount put forth official guidelines for Fan Films using Star Trek as their basis. There was the usual firestorm on the forums facebook on his in the various Star Trek fan film communities.

While we still have a few more weeks left in 2015, and I probably will finish one more book (the one I have in progress and listening to during my commutes these days), this is a mostly accurate view of my 2015 reading list. One year I made my goal to read 30 books in a year - failed it. Since then I've decided to keep it simple and focus on reading a book a month. If I go over that
Back to the future!
Or...maybe back to the past? Going Retro? Hmmm... Perhaps going retro is a more appropriate title.In any case, having played Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST and Halo Reach and liked the, I decided to read to 4 Halo Books. I read (or rather listened to) Halo Evolutions I, and the first trio of Halo Books (Fall of Reach, The Flood and First Strike) in audiobook format (thank you library!). I enjoyed
The other day I was curious to see if Overdrive had an iOS app that I could load on my iPod Touch or iPhone so I can take advantage of the service offerings of my local public library. I often go to the library to get videos or books (and on occasion books on CD), but lately I haven't had much of an opportunity to browse the stacks - and quite honestly my academic library keeps me busy with academic
Audible iOS app is good!
A week or so ago I heard on one of the TWiT Podcasts that audible had an audible application for the iPhone out. Now over the years I've bought many Free audible books. They go on sale, or there is a special promotion going on and the books are free. These are automatically downloaded and added to my iTunes library.
