Finally found time to read Forgotten History by Christopher Bennett, which was much fun. Am now rereading The World of Star Trek by David Gerrold, which I don't think I've read in decades, although I devoured it when I was a teen.
(I stumbled onto a used copy at Shore Leave a few weeks ago and couldn't resist reading it again.)
Which edition are you reading? The original from 1973 or the 1984 reprint? I read the 1984 edition that same year when I was a teen, and I remember Gerrold writing in that version how there were differences from the original. In several places, he wrote, "In the 1973 edition of this book, I wrote about.....". I've been curious about the 1973 printing ever since, but every copy I've found has been priced beyond my budget.
It's an eighth printing (from 1976) of the 1973 edition. I picked up a well-worn copy for $3 at a convention.
