All British chain book stores, Borders, Books Etc, Waterstones (incorporating Ottakars) and WHSmith, have about a shelf and a half of Star Trek books
Dunno where you live, then; my local WHSmith has a lone copy of Kobayashi Maru, and the two branches of Waterstone's in my town have one Captain Kirk's Guide to Women between them!

(Always plenty of other tie-in stuff, though. S'only Trek that's sparse, in my experience.)

A Borders near me still did not have it as of today. That's pretty bad.
All part and parcel of Borders' own economic implosion. Basically, they have neither the cash nor the available credit to order new inventory, and are falling behind on many new titles.
Not surprising, I feel like they are the freaking Starbucks of the book world. There are 3 of them within walking distance of my work.
Where my wife works, there are two Borders in walking distances and a Barnes & Nobels as well.

Easons-The main Irish booksellers chain seem to have stopped stocking Star Trek titles too.As for the independents...forget about it.Finding new ST titles is next to impossible.
What you could do is get a Sony Reader PRS-505 and then you could get them as eBooks and it would not matter what your local shops have or not.

Or have you thought about asking the store to special order it for you? Most places are willing to do that.

The Easons on O'Connell Street has about a shelf and a half of Star Trek books. They keep it updated too, it was the first place I saw Fearful Symmetry. Hodges Fidges, Waterstones and Chapters have a selection too. And then of course there's Forbidden Planet. However, it is annoying to have to trek into town to pick up a book.

The only other option is Borders in Blanchardstown but that too is a journey in itself.

I'm hoping that the trend may change, once the new film is released, like it did with Star Wars.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

/\Sorry Bec,you seem to have been issued with one of those maps of the greater Dublin area,with the caption underneath that reads "Ireland".
There is life in the provinces,(not necessarily intelligent though).
As for asking the clerk,well,I'm a man in my 40's,my ST book buying habits are rather furtive anyway.
Thanks guys,I'll manage.

As you do not state where in the Emerald Isle you are, that comment was uncalled for, anyway, isn't everyone living over there in Dublin as you all left because of lack of potatoes

I just wanted to let everyone know that Trekmovie.com has posted an excerpt from the second Destiny book: Mere Mortals.

After just finishing reading the Mere Mortals excerpt I'll definitely be getting the last 2 books in this series.

Thanks for that, dimesdan! Last time I try to help someone out. However, on the same note, I know you didn't mean it in a bad way, but I didn't find the potatoes comment funny. Next thing you know, someone will mention leprechauns...

Well, there's one line - that first two-sentence bit of italics about half a page in - that gives me completely the wrong ideas!

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

I read some but that is too spoiler heavy for me. I'll read the book in a few weeks, and will enjoy it immensely.

I'm going to wait until I have all three and read them back to back.
