Re: Literate Trek Novels

With the proviso that I object to the term "literary" in general, as I think it denotes a level of snobbishness directed at perfectly good stories as somehow being untrue literature...

The most sophisticated, best-written Star Trek novels I've ever read would probably be:
  • The Final Reflection by John M. Ford
  • DS9: Hollow Men by Una McCormack
  • DS9: The Never-Ending Sacrifice by Una McCormack
  • Terok Nor: Day of the Vipers by James Swallow
  • Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts of Empire by David R. George III
  • Typhon Pact: Plague of Nights by David R. George III
  • Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn by David R. George III
  • Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game by David Mack
  • Destiny by David Mack
  • Mirror Universe: The Sorrows of Empire by David Mack
  • S.C.E.: Wildfire by David Mack
  • Articles of the Federation by Keith R.A. DeCandido
  • Spock's World by Diane Duane
