If the person writing the article was thinking in terms of novels for adult fans, "Mission to Horatius" wouldn't have come into his
Even if it was released as a part of a children's line, the book has since been reissued as part of the adult line, and thus, it is the first tie-in.
No one is disputing its status as "the first tie-in". As I said, I've owned a copy of "Mission to Horatius" since the 60s, long before I really knew what Star Trek was!

I was attempting to suggest how and why it is often overlooked. Adults reading the article are unlikely to want to be recommended a YA novel. Magazine article authors consider their audience; a similar article in a magazine for kids would be the place to make a fuss over past kidlit tie-ins.
