Re: best star trek books and novels
While we're on Peter David books, I'd add in Excalibur: Restoration and Once Burned as outstanding novels. I enjoyed Imzadi 2, though I know PAD had some frustrations with it.
For other entertaining books with a sense of fun and humour (which tend to be PAD signatures) I'd recommend Mudd in your Eye and Q & A.
Ugh, I couldn't stand Restoration.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
