Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I don't know how many other people got it, but I got the new issue of the Star Trek Magazine and there is a huge update for Trek Lit with all sorts of new information. Including (informal) descriptions for everything from July of this year all the way through Janurary of 2012, including three new books we've never heard about, and the cover for Seize the Fire.
A couple things we haven't heard before include:
A title for the new Voyager book: Children of the Storm
Cast No Shadow: A TOS movier era Vaughn/Valeris story
The Romulan War: In Shariel's Shadow
Vanguard 6
Since this is in the magazine I'm not comfortable posting any more without an ok. So would it be ok if I posted the descriptions?

I would imagine that it'll all be on Memory Alpha/Beta fairly soon, but if you're worried, you could certainly just post series/title/author for each one.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I assume Wardilmore's writing Vanguard 6, and Martin is writing Romulan War. Who's writing Cast No Shadow?

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

You're right on the first two, and James Swallow is writing Cast No Shadow. Oh, and I forgot that DTI now has a sub title. It's in the magazine as DTI: Watching the Clock.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

So let me see if I remember everything that's been announced, post-Typhon Pact. In no particular order:

VOY: Children Of The Storm - Beyer
DTI: Watching The Clock - Bennett
Vanguard: Declassified - Ward, Dilmore, Mack, Palmieri
TOS: A Choice Of Catastrophes - those authors that always bitch that their names are misspelled, so I'm just gonna pass on trying to get that right
TNG-ish: Indistinguishable From Magic - McIntee
Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions - Mack
TOS-ish: Cast No Shadow - Swallow
Vanguard 6 - Wardilmore
Romulan War: In Shariel's Shadow - Martin

Am I missing anything? Unless we're skipping some months or doing some reprints, that seems like it's a few short of January 2012.

Blind Man's Bluff, a reprint.

Very much looking forward to DTI and In Shariel's Shadow.

Now if only I could stop thinking about the plight of Columbia whenever I read an Enterprise novel or a scene about an NX class vessel.

I condemn He Who Will Not Be Named for being too entertaining.

Some good stuff coming up for sure, but no DS9?

Oh, somehow I missed that first sentence about the reprints, even though I looked over the thread pretty thoroughly, I thought.

Thanks JD for news about the StarTrek Book schedule. I can't wait to get my copy of the magazine and read about the new books coming out in 2011/2012.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Oops, my bad it's actually In Shariel's Jaws, not Shadow. I was doing that from memory originally, and I should really know better than that.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Ok, so is In Shariel's Jaws a MMPB? Or is there no MMPB in the month it's released?

Either way, I feel like the schedule is a little light, yes? All MMPBs and no trades, or we're missing an MMPB that month. Not too shocking, given that the whole thing is edited by one person and she's new to it AND has other responsibilities besides, but still.

That said, I'm hugely excited about literally every novel on the schedule. Which is FANTASTIC. I'm sad Mack's next novel isn't out for so long, and I'm sad there isn't more DS9, but otherwise this is a mighty promising list of tales.

Good news! We're considering changing our names to Hank and LeRoy Rockefeller, which should make things easier.
