TNG: The Stuff of Dreams
 
I can't see a thread about this - what is this upcoming James Swallow book about?

If I recall, it was (as seems to happen a lot lately) only a working title and not the final title.

And I can't remember reading anything about plotdetails yet.

There is a thread about it.

The only other info from that thread: It's a standalone set before David Mack's trilogy.

BTW: Has there been any information what it means that the book has vanished from the S&S site (Amazon still has it listed, but for March 2013 instead of December 2012).

Actually, that's pretty much going to be the final title.

Ah, guess I was wrong. Oops. In any case, good look with writing, I'm always looking forward to more Trek. :)

Thanks for sharing (what you could, anyway). :)

So it actually follows on from Cold Equations, then? Interesting.

Yeah, this certainly sounds very interesting.

Chronologically speaking, that is. It's not like a direct sequel/coda or anything. Originally, it was actually going to come out around now and be set just before Dave's trilogy, but once S&S decided to move the release date back, I revised the story to account for...stuff.

A connection to Generations? Could be interesting. I'm intrigued. I hope it continues the theme of mortality that Generations had and the Nexus provided an escape from.

This sounds like it could be pretty good. I've been very reluctant to jump aboard the eBook bandwagon, but I may take the plunge and get myself an iPad early next year, and so I'd probably just go ahead and make the switch.

Have you ever read an eBook?

Every time you read an E-book, a bookstore clerk loses their job.
