{Sunday Post}—Farscape, Seaquest DSV, and Queen of the Slayers

The Caffeinated Book Reviewer's Kimberly hosts a weekly meme called "The Sunday Post"! 

I'm running really late with this post, so no "Weekly Tidbits."

What Am I Currently Reading?

My reading has been slow lately. I'm just now starting James Patterson's The House of Wolves.

The House at the End of the World

What's in the Mailbox?

Gallery Books sent me two ARCs: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds: The High Country by John Jackson Miller and Little Paula by V.C. Andrews (Andrew Neiderman).

What's New on the Shelf?

I finally got my hands on Kathleen Sky's Star Trek novel Death's Angel, which has one of my favorite covers from the 1970–1981 Bantam era. Additionally, I purchased the one and only Sliders novelization by Brad Linaweaver on eBay. The novelization of the Sliders pilot episode was published nearly a year after the show aired. Sliders was a short-lived science fiction series that debuted on Fox for three seasons before shifting to the Sci Fi Channel (now known as Syfy) for two seasons. No other Sliders books were published.

More eBay purchases include Nancy Holder's Queen of the Slayers and Andrew Dymond's Farscape: The Dark Side of the Sun, as well as Dean Koontz's The Vision. For those of you who don't know, the Sci Fi Channel ran the science fiction series Farscape from 1999 to 2003. Only three books based on the series were published; the only one I was missing was The Dark Side of the Sun. One of the books I don't possess is Dean Koontz's The Vision, so when someone mentioned it in a comment a few weeks ago, I decided to buy a used paperback copy and give it some TLC. Last but not least, I purchased Queen of the Slayers, one of many Buffy the Vampire Slayer books I don't have in my collection. 

There must be a regulation stating that a science fiction television series can only receive a three-book contract as a trial run. SeaQuest DSV, like Farscape, has just three novels. NBC aired the television series from 1993 until 1996. I bought three SeaQuest DSV titles off of eBay: SeaQuest DSV: The Novel by Diane Duane and Peter Morwood; SeaQuest DSV: Fire Below by Matthew J. Costello; and SeaQuest DSV: The Ancient by David Bischoff.

New titles on my Kindle are Ghostbusters: The Original Novelizations of Ghostbusters 1 and 2 by Richard Mueller and Ed Naha; The Last Astronaut by David Wellington; and Hidden Universe Travel Guides: Star Trek: The Klingon Empire by Dayton Ward.


  1. I'm curious about The Last Astronaut!

  2. The Koontz book has me wondering even though I've never really read him...

    That Sky cover...

  3. The Vision was the first Dean Koontz book I read and it was really good. I wat to read more by Dean Koontz.
    Have a great week.
