But to spend on a hardback--that's offputting to me, to say the least. ESPECIALLY when I then have to wait a YEAR to read that story because of the paperback delay.
It's funny. I can so readily recall, when "Spock's World" was announced: it sounded like it was a once-only hardcover event; a "coming of age" for Star Trek tie-ins in novel form - and no one ever dreamed that it would even be offered in MMPB a year later. It caused great excitement in ST fandom. And to look at it (and "The Lost Years") on my shelf and note that the title "Star Trek" doesn't even appear on its spine! Amazing.
