A mob with pitchforks and torches burst in and destroyed their typewriters.

I'm sorry, did you not read my post, the second response to this thread?
I saw it. I was hoping somebody might know and share, rather than me shelling out $$$ for the answer.And a book concerned with a lot of Non-TOS material, which doesn't hold my interest currently. No offense.

Then you really DO need to read it. Check it out of your local library. See if your local Half Price Books has a copy. The one here in Omaha had three copies for sale, for under 3.50 each, when I was there earlier this week.

It's amazing, just how many TOS authors are there, and every one of them is given fair treatment. M&C's section ... well, you'll enjoy it.

I'm sorry, did you think that your post was providing an answer? I can understand the snottiness if you had actually given information other than "Buy/check out this book" but you didn't. So stuff the attitude.

That was by Sonni Cooper. As far as I know, Marshak & Culbreath had no involvement with that project.
Ahhh.

Still, it had the same "creepy" vibe to it that M&C's stuff did...

I tried one of the Phoenix novels once. It was so bad I couldn't even finish it. I couldn't understand what the hell was going on.

I actually liked Black Fire... and I also spent three months in a mental hospital at one point in my life so take that as you will.

Sonni Cooper used to run William Shatner's fan club, and I think worked for him as a PA, so probably was friendly with M&C during the "Shatner: Where No Man..." research.

Re: Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath

I did enjoy Black Fire quite a bit (although the Tomarii were very stereotypical villains). I found it much easier to follow than the Phoenix novels.

I never read the Pheonix novels, but I've tried my hand at 'Prometheus Design' twice and have yet to be able to understand just what in God's name is happening.

Re: Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath

So, could someone who has the Voyages book explain for us poor people who don't have access to a copy let us in on the secret? I'd rather like to know.

Re: Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath

I don't know what OmahaStar's on about, because Voyages doesn't shed any light on the issue at all as far as I can tell. It merely states that the duo went on to create a phonics game, but not why Triangle was the last they published.

Re: Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath

I have the two Phoenix books, two of the New Voyages anthologies and Star Trek Lives! sitting on my shelf.

I've not actually read any of them, and this thread is not exactly threatening to change that.

Yes, an amazon search of the book's content and their names didn't produce any answers.

Oh, and for the record, I didn't take his response as snotty, just not providing an answer. I don't want anyone to think I was ignoring anyone. Just trying to get an answer.
