But standalone books can be consistent with each other and maybe include subtle nods to each other if the authors choose to coordinate them, as Greg and I did with The Rings of Time and Forgotten History. Interconnectedness doesn't have to mean full-blown serialization; it can be far more subtle.
Good point. I was assuming that Relayer1 was looking for something more substantial, but you're right, things like those, or even the early 80s shared TOS continuity, show that there can be novels that are consistent but not tightly bound like most 24th century novels are nowadays.
