Release schedule for remainder of 2012/2013?
 
What books are due to be released, and when, for the rest of 2012 and for 2013? Every few months I would see a thread for upcoming publications for the next two months, but I don't recollect seeing that recently. Share, please? :)

Stupid new movie, filling the year with TOS books on DS9's 20th anniversary.

Not making a serious complaint, so don't anybody jump down my throat *s*

^It's been a recurring pattern in recent years for the former half of the year to be TOS-heavy and the latter half to be 24th-century-heavy.

Just FYI; it's not the working title any more, and it'll be out in March 2013, not December 2012. :bolian:

^Does that mean it's the final title, or that it's been dumped and there's a new working title?

I'm not sure it's entirely about the movie. I can't speak for the other authors, but I wrote a TOS book because, well, I prefer writing TOS books . . . .

There will be no movie next year or the year after, but I'm already brainstorming my next TOS book.

I think I remember reading somewhere that TOS novels actually are the best selling Trek novels, which is why we continue to see so many in any given year. And indeed, as has already been noted the first half of every year is usually TOS heavy with the second half devoted to the 24th century series. Even this year, TNG's 25th anniversary didn't see any novels featuring the main TNG cast until June. Everything before was 23rd century. Though May's Forgotten History was actually set in both centuries, it is more a TOS novel, than anything else.

Besides, plans for a novel celebrating DS9's 20th anniversary have already been announced, so it's not like Pocket is ignoring the milestone or anything.

Still think you should try an Enterprise book. I'd like ANYONE to try an Enterprise book, but you in particular - you seem to have a feel for the pre-TNG era...

Thanks for the schedule, guys; I appreciate it.

Is the Typhon Pact book due in October, or late September? I thought I had heard someone mentioning a September release.

Have we heard anything concerning a new Myriad Universes anthology? Those were particularly good.

It's the official October release, but the actual releases are in the preceding month.

For example Brinkmanship will be released on September 25th as an eBook, the pBooks started to appear "in the wild" a week or so ago.

We haven't heard anything about any anthologies for next year. I hope we get something though, I've enjoyed most of the anthologies we've been getting the last year years.

Thanks. Maybe one of these days. ENTERPRISE is still the only Trek series I haven't written for yet.

DS9, yay! I, too love it.

But aren't the characters from DS9 all caught up in the Typhon Pact series? So I'm guessing that means Mack's trilogy will advance the stories of their lives a bit, too.

But yeah! I hope there's a novel celebrating the 20th later in the year.
