i had just started up my own reading of all the TOS books about a month ago, Captain Sarine. I've been reading them in publication order. I just finished "Yesterday's Son." Loved what was there, just wish it had more meat to the story. But then, I have yet to read "Time for Yesterday." I'm holding off on reading Star Trek 2 and 3, until i get to 4. Then i'm gonna read all 3 as one big trilogy. I just started "Mutiny on the Enterprise" last night. Gotta say, it's starting off better than Vardeman's last TOS novel, "The Klingon Gambit."
