Re: NuTrek lit?

^ It is true, though, that an awful lot of Trek authors either are only published in Trek or are only published in Trek and other tie-in properties. David Mack's first original novel is only now coming out, you've had a few original short stories, KRAD has had one original novel published also well after he began tie in work, Dayton has had two original novels published also after he began his career with Trek (far fewer than the number of his tie-in novels), and the list goes on.

I believe your advice to be correct, but I think one could be forgiven for seeing all of this and assuming the way to get to be a professional Trek writer is just to write Trek and nothing else.
