I am not familiar with the last two TOS authors listed, Leisner and Mariotte? Have then written any previous Trek novels I may know?
Jeff Mariotte wrote 2003's The Lost Era: Deny Thy Father
, and William Leisner wrote 2009's TNG: Losing the Peace
and the 2008 Myriad Universes
novel A Less Perfect Union
Mariotte wrote what was probably my least favorite of the Lost Era books. I think it was an average book, just many other books in that series are favorites of mine.
I think Leisner's Losing the Peace
is fantastic. I think at the time it came out I said something along the lines of the until LtP came out I felt the TNG relaunch consisted of some of my favorite ST authors writing what were not my favorite books by them. Leisner turned that series around for me. I'm looking forward to the new Leisner book.
