I just read this Garak backstory novel written by Andrew J Robinson, who played Garak on DS9--my favorite Trek and my favorite character! I loved it...compelling protagonist and other interesting characters, philosophical musings--as well as psychological, sociological, and political musings, interesting plot development, and important in sci-fi, details about an alien culture. Not to mention solid, readable prose that kept me engrossed and thinking (the occasional typo, alas, but I've never read an ebook without them--I got the Kindle version). I stayed up till 2am to finish it last night. A few caveats...I would've liked more of Garak's wit--the book is in the from of a long letter to Dr Bashir so mostly interior dialog (would've liked to see more of Garak's great conversational skill), maybe more Obsidian Order missions (or perhaps I'm too squeamish-), perhaps more lovey-dovey stuff (hey, I'm a girl!), more fleshed out secondary characters esp Enabran Tain. Robinson handles 3 timelines better than lots of more experienced authors. His technical skill as a writer is most admirable.Elim Garak...raconteur, tailor, gardner, spy!Anyone else read this?
