Three books in a month! Getting good at this!
Sorry, I missed this for some reason. They were:
Star Trek: The Final Reflection
By John M. Ford
This is the first Star Trek novel I've read (and finished) for years. I used to read a lot of them as a teenager and collected a large number of the Titan re-issues that came out in the late eighties/early nineties. This one was written in 1984 - pre-TNG - and has a very different take on the Klingons from what they would evolve into, but it did lay some of the ground work for what came later. I never read the book at the time, but it was mentioned as an influence for Star Trek Discovery, so I dug it out and read it. It's not the greatest book ever written, and it has certainly dated, but I didn't want to throw it out of the window as I did Star Trek: Forgotten History a few years back!
One for the fans.
The Furthest Station
By Ben Aaronovitch
The first Rivers of London/PC Grant novella (and from what Ben Aaronovitch has been saying, it probably won't be the last). Although looking forward to reading this, I was a bit wary as my previous, limited experience of novellas has largely been of stories that don't quite fit the format (they have either been padded or crammed/rushed). This one, however, was a distilled slice of Grant, and worked very for me. A good story, that makes good use of the characters and continues to expand the RoL universe. Also, from a book-geek point of view, it is a nice little hardback!
And yesterday I finished:
Rivers of London
By Ben Aaronovitch
After reading the above I was inspired to go back and start re-reading the series again, and I'm glad I did because there is so much I have forgotten! Great book - classic novice in a fish-out-of-water situation. if you like your policing with a dash of magic and haven't read this, do so now.
Highly recommended (and only 99p on Kindle at the moment!)
