Google Alerts

I’ve been testing Google alerts the last few months using the phrase “4R x T.”  I think I’ve gotten most of my blog posts back in the alerts, along with some other links.  The problem with Google alerts is the same problem that Google has:  You get too many results to be useful unless you narrow your search dramatically.

The Mask of Atreus by A. J. Hartley

The Mask of Atreus (New York:  Berkley-Penguin Group, 2006) is the first novel by A. J. Hartley, the British-born Distinguished Professor of Shakespeare at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (“Bio“).  I was interested in how he tied together the Trojan War, World War II, the Soviet Union, and modern-day Georgia.  However, I did find the novel rather long and somewhat tedious in places.  However, I much appreciated his list of “Source Material” (389-90), and I was delighted to learn that my initial suspicions of one of the characters turned out to be accurate.  I’ll read his next novel and hope the plot it tighter.

Star Trek: A Singular Destiny by Keith R. A. DeCandido

Star Trek: A Singular Destiny (New York: Pocket Books-Simon & Schuster, 2009), “commences in late April 2381, about two months after the conclusion of the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy, and a year and a half after the feature film Star Trek Nemesis” (“Historian’s Note”).  I read the Destiny trilogy earlier this year.  Unfortunately, A Singular Destiny doesn’t include as many of the characters from the television series and movies as the trilogy did.  In fact, the only major character in A Singular Destiny from any of the series is Ezri Dax.  Leonard McCoy has a “cameo appearance.”

More novels based on the events in the Destiny trilogy have already been published:

  • Titan: Over a Torrent Sea
  • Voyager:  Full Circle
  • The Next Generation:  Losing the Peace
  • Voyager:  Unworthy
  • Titan:  Synthesis

From the titles, I’m hoping to “see” more of the original characters in these books.

The Paris Vendetta by Steve Berry

The plot of Steve Berry‘s most recent novel, The Paris Vendetta (New York:  Ballantine Books-Random House, 2009), didn’t seem as complex as those of his previous novels.  He didn’t tie together so many different elements, and the characters weren’t spending as much time jetting from one part of the globe to another.  The majority of the action took place in Denmark, England, and France–mostly in France, which made sense since the historical focus was on Napoleon, with some references to the Merovingian kings and the Nazis.
