Re: VAN: In Tempest's Wake by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!)

"In Tempest's Wake" wasn't bad (coming from Dayton, I'd have been surprised if it was!). As a coda to Vanguard, it works. There's some nice character bits with Kirk and Nogura.

But the novella is more an assortment of continuity spackle, rather than a standalone story. I probably would've been more satisfied if this had been part of a greater whole, like another Declassified volume. Alas, it wasn't.

For the curious among you, the book is roughly 30,000 words long.
