I confess I haven't read any of the books, but I want to! Maybe I'll make it my New Year's resolution!

You're missing a helluva lot, ...a HELLUVA LOT.

Dark Genesis - The Birth of the Psi Corps
Deadly Relations - Bester Ascendant
Final Reckoning - The Fate of Bester


#7 The Shadow Within
The Passing of the Technomages (Del Rey trilogy)
The Passing of the Techno-Mages - Book I - Casting Shadows
The Passing of the Techno-Mages - Book II - Summoning Light
The Passing of the Techno-Mages - Book III - Invoking Darkness
I left the book series title in there because it's "Techno-Mages" in the books, but vastly prefer "Technomages." Looks less awkward.


Legions of Fire (Del Rey trilogy)
Book I - The Long Night of Centauri Prime
Book II - Armies of Light and Dark
Book III - Out of the Darkness


#9 To Dream in the City of Sorrows

Re: EpDis: Ship Of Tears

Thanks, KoshN...for the list, I mean! The truth is I haven't read any because I wasn't sure where to start! I guess those books are hard to find, huh? Well, at least I have a list to work off of....thanks again, and Happy New Year!

Here's the info. with ISBN#s. I would have made this better looking, but I'm in a rush to get to New Years dinner and my mouse is dying (Think I've worn it out. No, it's not dirty.), so nothing's cooperating.

Just read "The Shadow Within" before the Technomage trilogy.

Re: EpDis: Ship Of Tears

The additional 7 books have also been out of print for years. The original trilogies and reprints of To Dream and Shadow are still available from Del Rey as far as I know.

Re: EpDis: Ship Of Tears

THANK YOU FOR REMINDING US OF THOSE. AND WHY ARE WE TYPING IN ALL CAPS?

**Blinks**



Personally I've enjoyed reading almost all of the books, even the numbered ones.

Geez, quit shouting.

IMHO, 1 thru 3, 6 &amp; 8 are not crap. They are just nowhere near as good as 7, 9, and the three trilogies. The problem is, there are some mistakes, some of the situations are implausible, and/or the characterizations are off.

Book#1 "Voices" - Vornholt, John - 0-440-22057-2 - March-1995 - Dell

Book#2 "Accusations" - Tilton, Lois - 0-440-22058-0 - May-1995 - Dell

Book#3 "Blood Oath" - Vornholt, John - 0-440-22059-9 - October-1995 - Dell

Book#6 "Betrayals" - Stirling, S.M. - 0-440-22234-6 - June-1996 - Dell

Book#8 "Personal Agendas" - Sarrantonio, Al - 0-440-22351-2 - May-1997 - Dell




Also, to call 4 &amp; 5 crap, is to insult crap, and 5 was worse than 4.

Book#4 "Clark's Law" - Mortimore, Jim - 0-440-22229-X - February-1996 - Dell

Book#5 "The Touch of Your Shadow, the Whisper of Your Name" - Barrett, Jr., Neal - 0-440-22230-3 - April-1996 - Dell



Here's three more that nobody mentioned:

"A Call to Arms" - Sheckley, Robert - 0-345-43155-3 - January-1999 - Del Rey
"In the Beginning" - David, Peter - 0-345-42452-2 - January-1998 - Del Rey
"Thirdspace" - David, Peter - 0-345-42454-9 - July-1998 - Del Rey

Of those, the Peter David books are the best. Sheckley's "A Call to Arms" while decidedly inferior to Peter David's novelizations, still did clear up some things I didn't pick up from the movie, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

I'll have to re-buy the three trilogies. Mine are getting decidedly frayed, with pages yellowing, and bits of the covers coming off. Wish they'd put them out in three hardbacks. Yeah, I know. Never going to happen.
