Star Trek - exact title(s) to be determined
Wolves of the Calla - Stephen King
Saturn - Ben Bova

Managed 4 books off my TBR so far this month,I think it was only two last month! lol
Will be a major slowdown this week,am glued to the Queen's funeral events on TV. I distinctly remember,aged 5 going to the cinema(only rich had TV in UK in 1953,for heaven's sake we were still on rationing!) to watch the Queen's coronation on the screen in glorious technicolour. Loved the golden coach. So it was with respect and sorrow i watch an end to the second Elizabethan Age.
I also remember the last state funeral,that of Winston Churchill in 1965(I was 17 then) We had tellies by then,small,blurred black and white,but I remember the military parade,and the coffin on a gun carriage,then on a boat on the river. We Brits love our pomp and ceremony,but there is always respect and emotion at the heart.
I have a C J Cherryh on the TBR,and Philip Wylie's The Disappearance,but dont know if I can concentrate enough to do them justice. May just read the second in the St Mary's sequence,enjoyable enough fluff!

I read a lot of what I said I was going to read this month.

Lady of Caladan - good. Waiting for the next book.

Wolves of the Calla - good. I am liking this series.

Mars Life - good. Wow. This was written in 2008 but what is going on in the book is going on here right now.

The Exploits of Engelbrecht - ok. The imagery in this book is incredible but the writing style is rather ho hum. Lots of buildup of what could be spectacular adventures that end on a rather blah note. These stories would make good video.

The Nemesis Effect - meh. Big dumb object attacks Earth. Main character is too obsequious.

Gemini Rising - ok. Mystery with clones.

Non- genre
Hell and Back - latest Longmire book. Excellent.
Shots Fired - short stories from Joe Pickett land. Very good.
Free Fire - Joe Pickett mystery. Very good.
Blackening Song - Ella Clah mystery - Good
All the Real Indians Died Off - interesting. Knew a lot of this but learned a few things.

Currently reading Saturn, written in 2006. This stuff is happening under our noses (if you live in the USA). Guess Bova was trying to warn us.
