I'm worried that making a post before the importer's done its job will cause this post to vanish into the ether, crash Dreamwidth, or break the internet, but I think on balance I'll risk it.

While I'm waiting for the new Trek film to make its way to the cinemas I'm revisiting The Original Series. I think it's safe to say this was my first true love, as TV shows go; I'm a bit fuzzy on the timing, but I think I got into TOS before The X-Files (and unlike The X-Files I never fell out of love with it). I'm sure that I got into Star Trek through the novels before I'd ever seen the TV show, and when you've started off by falling in love with library copies of Uhura's Song and Pawns and Symbols it's a bit jarring to finally find it on TV and realise that Uhura's not the main character and there are far less Klingons than you were led to believe. Still, I gave it a chance and spent my early teens as a massive Trek nerd. So, with the new movie upon us I'm watching some episodes I haven't seen in years (alt!Spock/McCoy? Hot.) and finally getting around to sticking some books onto my shiny ebook reader.

This week I spent a commute and a lunch hour reading The Vulcan Academy Murders. My one-word review: lol. Spoilers for a decades old book )
It was a slight, fun read and I certainly don't resent the couple of hours I spent on it. What should be my next odyssey into TOS published fanfic? I have most of them in ebook and I'm veering towards The Entropy Effect or Dwellers in the Crucible, both of which I remember liking when I was a kid, but I'd be keen for Moar Sulu or Uhura.

The BBC allegedly believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here:

How do your reading habits stack up? [bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish]

Yeah, I start a lot of books and then forget where I've put them... )
