I’m happy to see so much info about the Stargate books. I’ve read almost all of them by now and am patiently(?) waiting for new ones to come out. However, given that all these authors are Stargate fans and have watched the series, it would be really nice if they could get their facts correct. Unless, of course, they are changing them to suit themselves. I’ve come across numerous errors in all the books about things that happened throughout the series, and I see no reason for them having been changed. For instance, in one book Cassie is remembering the… Read more »

Roswell (SG1) and Exogenesis (Atlantis) are both a great read! I recommend them, as it was easy to see the former as an unused film script, and the latter a two part special of that series, in novel form!

Are there any books that specifically focus on Carson Beckett at all, or have him central to the main plot of the story?

Thunderbird2 – Carson has a fair bit in “Transitions”, which is a combination of SG1 and SGA. I believe he had a small part in “The Chosen”. None of the others specifically focus on him, though.

nice

The quality of Transitions can not be trumpeted enough. It fills in the nigh-inexcusable gap between SG-1 Seasons 8 and 9 absolutely masterfully, to the point where even a dork like me will just ignore the minor timeline inconsistencies to enjoy a great story.

I’m really happy about this, especially since I got an e-reader for my birthday. I loved most of the Atlantis books, but I’m not too much of a fan of the legacy series, because as agatha said, there seems to have been very little study of the show for it, and the geeky details it needs isn’t there, especially on the wraith parts. There is also massive focus on Teyla and Sheppard as a couple, which in my sense has no room in an official book. So if you are not a fan of this couple or couples in general,… Read more »

Just to clarify something from “missflesh’s” comment. I said nothing about the “Legacy” series in my first post. In fact, I wasn’t referring to anything in the Legacy series, which I have greatly enjoyed and am looking forward to the rest of the series. The comments I made were in reference to a couple of SG1 books, not to any SGA books.

Oh, my bad agatha, I apologise for misunderstanding.

I have been reading the novels since last year. I never thought when I started watching Stargate SG-1 in January 2010, I would ever get sucked into everything else (spin-offs, novels, compilation books). Now I watch Stargate Atlantis avidly and have read six novels (First Do No Harm, Sacrifice Moon, Survival of the Fittest, City of the Gods, The Power Behind the Throne, and Transitions) since March 2011, and am now reading my seventh, Trial by Fire, with two more in waiting on my iPad’s Nook app (Barque of Heaven and Siren Song) and am anxiously awaiting Ocean of Dust.… Read more »

I’ve ended up reading all of the novels, mostly on Kindle. They range from being a mildly good read to occasionally quite gripping, depending on the authors. They are the first and only novelizations of a TV series that I’ve read, and I hope that they keep on coming. They have been a pretty satisfying fix for me.

I did omit that there is on Amazon one Stargate Universe story for e-books: Air (Obviously the novelization of the pilot.) For those of us us that liked SGU, I really hope someone steps up and gives us more of that story too.

As someone that doesn’t have, nor desire an e-reader, I’m not too fond of this. I assume now I’ll have to pay tax and shipping for a P.O.D of any new books, which means I’ll probably have to pay even more then in stores. (Plus I used my University Book Store rebate to get 7 or 8 of the books this last fall). I’d prefer being able to get them from Barnes & Noble just for ease.

@bluewater1 – I was on the edge of my seat during Do No Harm and Survival of the Fittest, it only took me two weeks to read each one. I never believed I would get sucked into the series!

For “edge of the seat” type stories, I found that “A Matter of Honor”, “The Cost of Honor”, “Survival of the Fittest”, “City of the Gods” to have some of the most nail-biting scenes. The other stories had some great scenes as well, but those four are my favorites (plus “Roswell”).

Legacy series is excellent just wish they had stayed with th originally planned release dates. I think we’d be waiting for book 6 right now not 4. Well I’ll agree that there are some minor continuity issues in the book. There no worse then the show it’s self. Over the course of all three series they made so many continuity errors I stopped keeping track. Even David Blue said in an interview that he would see things in the script that didn’t fit with continuity and the producers would tell him this is sci-fi lighten up. A little creative lee… Read more »
