With these authors involved, I'd suggest that you won't have to be a fan of the new film to enjoy them.
My hopes exactly.

One thing that would be cool, and I guess this is aimed toward Mr. Cox as he is writing the book with Spock-Prime, would be to have references to not only the Prime-Universe canon, but to the novel-verse continuity as well.
We're trying to keep the continuity nods to a minimum, to allow the books to stand on their own as a new subseries and to keep them accessible to new readers. So any such references would be subtle and small. At least they are in my book, and I think we're all operating under the same parameters.

Exactly. We want these books to be accessible to people who may have only seen the new movie, so I had to keep my continuity porn tendencies in check. There's a time and a place for Gary Seven cameos, but not this book!

That must have hurt.
