Re: SPOILERS..My thoughts on Spock Must Die!
The old Batnam books are a little rough/dirty compared to what we're used to now, but they're still an enjoyable read. The _____ of the Phoenix is a favorite series of mine, even if it does stretch the line between Kirk/Spock friendship/loyalty and go towards slash instead.
These are the kinds of books where you can't look for continuity, or a way to make them work with the rest of the books, just looking for a fun romp with the characters...
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
