Reading Roundup Wrapup: August 2017

Picks of the month: The Rings of Time by Greg Cox. This was one of those months where I read some good stuff, but nothing I particularly loved. I enjoyed The Mighty Thor, Star Raiders, both Chaykin space epics, The Rings of Time, More than Meets the Eye, and Landscape with Invisible Hand, but I didn't love any of them. So I waffled a bit before finally using Preference Revealer to generate one-on-one matches to determine my ranking a piece at a time. To my surprise, actually, this original series Star Trek novel came to the top. It's a fun, quick read-- I'm not sure you can say or need to say much more about it than that. (Landscape with Invisible Hand and More than Meets the Eye hovered just below.)
