It sounds like the Cowboys and Aliens fiasco. Space Vixens? Talk about a common denominator. They loved Salieri too. Who knows what's going to sell as that is no indication of quality. The last TOS book by that new guy sounds horrible. I think it is becoming purposeful. spoil the water so the audience will beg for anything better. No offense, Greg, but your stories haven't sent me over the moon either. So political clout and style kicks the ass of quality and artistic and moral merit every time, huh? This is why I don't buy books or go to the movies anymore.
