Wow. Christopher L. Bennett, you hit it out of the park with Watching the Clock
. As a continuity-loving fan, I was thrilled by all of the references, retcons, and explanations included in this book. The characters, concepts, and everything else meshed together to create a fascinating and gripping read. Watching the Clock
is in some respects a celebration of all of the different series of Star Trek
, and it is a shining representation of what a tie-in novel (and novel in general) can be.
I've got lots of positive thoughts about the book, but I'm still processing the experience. I look forward to seeing the annotations.
