Ah, yes the black cover. I forgot about that one. I bought it for my aunt in 1991. My red cover and white one both have that same picture of Kirk and Spock on it. The only difference in editions was the cover colors (and of course, how far they go movie-wise).

Don't let the books' second hand-ness bug you. My white one is also second hand, it was the only way I could find it. It was printed in 1993 if that helps. It also says "first printing 1989", which makes no sense at all since my first version (the red one) was printed in 1985.

You might look for it on Amazon, or if money is a concern, eBay.

Thats where I bought it. I bought it second hand, though I am alittle weary of buying books from sellers that sell them second hand. I really dislike giving my details when it comes to using my credit card.

I started reading Ex Machina, but stopped. I just couldn't get through it. Not becasue of the story, that seemed to be going fine. I kept getting distracted by the authors writing style. It didn't feel like it flowed very well, I thought there were passages that contradicted other passages, and every time he used a (insert something here to distract me from the story, when the author should have found a way to include it with the rest of the narrative or have left it out) I would get irritated and put the book down. In my opinion, anything that causes the reader to put the book down is most often bad, unless they're putting down becasue they've finished it.

Working my way through the entire Rihannsu series.

Right now I'm on Swordhunt.

I've been reading a lot of books recently and thus haven't made much progress.

Diane Duane's writing style is so riveting; it's really difficult to put one of her works down.

The next one for me to read will be "Power Hungry".

I'm anxious for Resistance to come out. I've been waiting for that since I got Death in Winter in what, 2005?

To those who have read/are reading it... what's the Rihannsu series like? I've heard a lot of positive comments about it so far. No plot details please - I'm planning on reading it at some stage, I'd just like to know what the hype is all about surrounding this series.

The Rihannsu series is about the real Romulan people. That they are not just the 'evil' people that the series portrays them as, but a rich cultural people with their own sense of honor(A much more...honorable one, actually, than the Klingon one). It's Diane Duane's masterpiece, easily. Personally, I could have seen the first book, My Enemy, My Ally being the two part episode that would have been TOS's equivalent of "Best of Both Worlds", just in literary excellence.
