Re: Old Treklit vs. new Treklit.

Today's TrekLit is obviously of higher quality and tighter continuity than back in the 90s, since there are less authors and less books being published. But that 90s era Trek Lit is way easier to get into, because there isn't a sprawling, almost Marvel/DC scale continuity that's hinted at in almost every book. If there's anything that puts people off reading, it's the feeling/knowledge that you need to read tons of other stuff to understand who is who and what's going on.
