As long as you don't try to fit this series of books into the shows they are very good. I enjoyed the series myself and have loaned them to my parents. They also enjoyed them as well. I have also read Stargate SG-1, The price you pay, and am now reading The first amendment, all written by Ashley McConnell. They are more in line with the TV series. There's also a new one comeing out next month which I have pre ordered from amazon.com. I hope they keep the books and shows comeing for a few more years at least.
