In the wake of Picard's words, everyone began to talk at once―some of them dismayed at his statement, others arguing against it or in favor of direct action.

My Thoughts

Gallery Books kindly sent me an ARC of Star Trek: Coda: The Ashes of Tomorrow, the second of three novels that will end the Trek lit-verse and recannon everything to line up with the Paramount+ series, Star Trek: Picard. I had planned on reading different book, but The Ashes of Tomorrow was calling my name.

He looked about, wishing for a supernatural vortex to whisk it away, and settled for putting the safety back on and placing it carefully into the pocket of his scrubs.

[Review] - Octopussy and The Living Daylights by Ian Fleming


Nearly two years after the death of Ian Fleming in 1964, Jonathan Cape published the author's short story collection Octopussy and The Living Daylights. The first edition had only 94 pages and didn't par too well with critics, who called the two stories predictable and complained about the overuse of violence and sex. Subsequent editions included The Property of a Lady and 007 in New York.

[Review] - The Man with the Golden Gun by Ian Fleming


Before the death of Ian Fleming in August 1964, he wrote one more full-length James Bond novel - The Man with the Golden Gun. Fleming wrote the 184-page tale at his Goldeneye estate in Jamaica between January and March 1964. Usually, Fleming would write 2,000 words per day. But because of his declining health, he would only write for an hour per day. It wasn't Fleming's best work. He planned on rewriting it in the spring of 1965, but, unfortunately, he died of a heart attack on August 2, 1964. Jonathan Cape published the novel posthumously eight months after Fleming's death. Like the previous 007 novel You Only Live Twice, critics didn't care much about Bond's newest adventure.
