A Very Trek Lit Chritmas
 
Used a gift card given to me as a Solstice present from my sister (she stopped celebrating Christmas, but still does gift exchanges) and bought the ebook versions of STMU: Rise Like Lions, Eureka: Substitution by Cris Ramsay (actually Trek author Aaron Rosenberg using a house name that is applied to all Eureka novels), Warehouse 13: A Touch of Fever by our very own Greg Cox, and Star Wars: Survivor's Quest by Timothy Zahn.
So has anyone else gotten, or expecting to get some Trek Lit, or Trek Lit related stuff for Christmas this year?

I will most definitely be getting Trek literature this Christmas. I do every year, along with other Trek goodies.

Since I get most of the newer novels over the past few years as soon as they're released, I won't be getting any of those but I did ask for the Haynes Enterprise manual. I guess it technically isn't literature and it's gotten a lot of bad press but it's the only tech book that's been released in several years so I figured I'd ask for it anyway. I guess I'll see in a few days if it made the grade with the wife or not.

Perhaps Kang and Kodos can help with the UFP/Typhon Pact decision making process?

My brother bought me Rise Like Lions and gave it to me on Sunday. Can't wait til I finish Vanguard: Declassified so I can tear into it.

I can say with certainty that I won't be receiving any Trek literature for Christmas, and I doubt I'll get money to buy my own because my people will be buying me lots of clothes this year...and rightfully so, because I lost quite a few pounds this fall and now a fair bit of my wardrobe no longer fits. :p

Congratulations on the weight loss! I'm in the same boat, I've shed quite a few pounds in the last year. None of my clothes fit anymore, and it's a great feeling!

I skimmed some of it the other day, and what I read felt like it could have been picked up right out of an episode of the show, so I'm pretty sure I'll love it. You might be interested to know that one of the next paperbacks I plan to read is Welcome to Promise City. These will actually be my first full length Greg Cox novels, and after interacting with you on here for so long I'm really looking forward to them.

Awesome new picture, Therin.

JD, Welcome to Promise City is FANTASTIC.

Probably no TrekLit for me for the holidays, as I can never wait to buy them when they come out!

I'm pretty sure I found your guys' lost pounds over the past several months. You're more than welcome to them if you'd like them back!

I'm definitely changing my eating habits after the holidays and restarting my exercise routine...

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, sorry for any I forgot.

Ooops, turns out I flipped the format of the books. Welcome is an ebook and Promises Broken is a paper. I knew I had one of each, I just flipped which was which format.
