The recent "Crucible" trilogy was three rather thick books only two months apart. The current "Terok Nor" trilogy is three books, one per month.
Not quite -- the three books in DRG3's trilogy were released in September, December, and February.

Were they originally scheduled to be released consecutively?

Two months between each issue, or thereabouts, was what I was aiming at. I'd already checked the dates; I figured there was no need for more more accuracy than that.

Oh, okay, I misread what you wrote as the three books coming out in two months' time, not two months between releases....

Re: Vanguard

I don't mind the wait between books because I think I've gotten used to there being up to a year or more between releases these days among my favorite Trek series. If nothing else, the VOY relaunch has taught me that getting just one book a year of a particular series is something to be thankful for.

I'm actually just now getting to Reap The Whirlwind even though I bought the book more than six months ago...

The RC books are on a separate contract, so they are an exception to the general rule. Barring events like anniversaries and Destiny, the wait between books of the same series does tend to be shorter in SW than ST nowadays.

Re: Vanguard

You're quite right. I'm not advocating one system over the other. They each please different people at different times for different reasons. I was just trying to answer Ian's question in my earlier post.

Back on the topic of Vanguard, I'm very excited to read the book. I hope the title and the text uphold the high standards of the series to date.

Yeah, but are they as well-written? I for one would rather that the Trek authors take their time and do good work than that they just turn them out. Chekhov didn't write The Cherry Orchard in a month, and Rome wasn't built in a day. I'd rather wait the ten years between Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows than get it really soon but not be as good.

Besides, I've got other books I have to read, too, y'know!

I'd say that TOS and TOS movie-era count as two ongoing series, even though they've often been tumbled together ever since "The Entropy Effect" first came out.

Re: Vanguard

I keep hoping for more Gorkon or Klingon Empire books, (whatever you want to call them) Only seconded by Vanguard books, and then Titan.

Used to be I was all about DS9, but I can't say that anymore, mostly since I've forgotten what's going on in the series and need to reread it. I still like a New Frontier novel every now and then, but even so that's more for Calhoun than anyone else.
