I wonder if Unspoken Truth will take any of Saavik's non-screen appearances into account?

Margaret Wander Bonanno's Pike novel, "Burning Dreams", was well-researched for what had gone before in the novels.

How long are the stories? Roughly like an CoE-novella?
I can answer that one, being that I'm writing "Reservoir Ferengi" in it... 20,000 words, so yeah, novella-length.

Re: Shore Leave

Excellent to see so many different types of books listed for next year. I'm really excited about the new Tos Books A new Saavik novel written by Margaret Wander Bonnano awesome. I always hoped there would be a solo novel about her again after Star Trek 4.and Captain April. Glad to see 2 new ds9 novels Olivia Woods and Una McCormack is back again terrific news!And a giant trade paperback about Enterprise and the Earth /Romulan wars is the one I've been looking forward to getting. Actually alot of great books to choose from. More Titan books is what I've been hoping to see happen!

Re: Shore Leave

Wow. That's really a diverse and impressive list. 2009 is going to be a very strong year for Trek Lit. How much of my hard-earned money is Pocket going to get from me through '09?

August '08 - TNG: Greater Than the Sum
October '08 - Destiny, book 1
November '08 - Destiny, book 2
December '08 - Destiny, book 3
February '09 - A Singular Destiny
March '09 - TTN: Over a Torrent Sea
July '09 - TNG: Losing the Peace
August '09 - DS9: The Soul Key
September '09 - DS9: The Never-Ending Sacrifice
November '09 - TTN untitled

These are all must-reads for me. And depending on the reviews and reception to Kirsten Beyer's VOY novels, I may actually have to give new VOY novels a chance for the first time in, well, ever!

If it does are you really going to wait another whole year?
I will. I've done so before when books like After the Fall came out hardcover, and I don't particularly mind since the interval between NF books is such that by the time the next entry rolls around, the reprint will have been released / will soon to be released.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Which is fair enough, but Therin was directing that response at a guy whose screen name is captcalhoun. I guess he might feel differently!

Re: Shore Leave

As far as I know, no previous trades have been rereleased as MMPBs. Am I wrong about that?

Yes, you are. The Lives of Dax was originally a trade paperback and then was re-issued with the post-finale Deep Space Nine logo as a mass-media paperback. I think there was another case, but my head cold is preventing my brain from working.

Hm. Thanks, I had forgotten about that.

Either way, it's not particularly common.

Re: Shore Leave

I just wanted to let everyone know that I just finished adding all of this info to Memory Beta. So feel free to check the stuff out if you want to.

I also was wondering if anyone here knows how to change the name of an entry there, because I accidently made one for Over A Torrrent Sea, instead of Over a Torrent Sea.
