Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Thanks for that news, JD! Glad I don't have to wait for the magazine to get over here in another two or three weeks to provide Memory Alpha with updates - I'd feel too far behind the times!

Lots of exciting news there - looks like Beyer will be revisiting the Borg-hunting group from Destiny, Jim Swallow tackling the TOS movie era, two Vanguard releases. Also disappointed that no DS9, but I guess that series may need some careful planning. Slightly sad that we have to wait until Jan '12 for Rise Like Lions, but it gives us a nice symmetry, with Shards and Sorrows being January releases as well.

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

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.
I'm not sure about In Shariel's Jaws, but I'll check tonight and get back to you in the morning.
Oh, and also incredibly excited for everything on the schedule. I'm really glad to see that Pocket is going to be doing some different types of stories. I'm especially curious about Cast No Shadow, Undiscovered Country has been one of my Trek movies for ages, and I've wanted to see Valeris again for a long time. Plus it's got Vaughn in it which is never a bad thing. Aaaaand it's written by James Swallow, which is another plus.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Well, there's Blind Man's Bluff coming in January. And recently, they've been coming more than a year apart, so I see no reason to expect the one after that to arrive before Jan 2012, which is the latest that this article covers.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Yeah, I knew about Blind Man's Bluff, but that's old news. I was hoping that by now there would be a proper description of the book and/or a cover. *shrug*

I would imagine that, as always, the schedule at this point is not necessarily final or comprehensive.

There's a reprint of Worlds Of DS9 III next month...

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I'm excited for most of the things on the upcoming schedule. I do wish that a DS9 novel was in that group. Also, it looks pretty light on Typhon Pact time period material. Only Children of the Storm and possibly Indistinguishable from Magic look like they are charting that future, although DTI could go anywhen, and Rise Like Lions could drop some clues if it goes far enough ahead.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

The novels sound interesting. I notice that many are a mish-mash of characters from the various series', and some of these crossovers (Valaris meets Vaughn? Spock meets Sisko?) sound a little pointless. We'll see.


Still nothing nuTrek related (outside those icky-sounding "romance filled" tween books) .

I'm hoping someone will get a clue and we'll get a prequel to STXII before June 2012 (a seperate novel to go with the inevitable comic miniseries - imagine how cool a Kelvin novel would have been prior to STXI!), or maybe those aborted novels currently gathering dust on a hard drive somewhere, tweaked a little to fit into the grand scheme.

I guess it comes down to the guy in charge of the Trek books and/or the people at Bad Robot having any initiative or not.

Oh, I agree and they didn't even have any author comments in the magazine article. It and the YA books were the only ones that didn't have any kind of author comments.

Apparently it is MMPB. The beginning of the article said they were all MMPB unless stated otherwise, and it didn't state otherwise in the entry For In Shariel's Jaws.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Basically, any series that didn't get any love in 2010 (ENT, VOY, & VAN) get picked up in 2011. Any word on what "Indistinguishable From Magic" is about? What timeframe?

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Well, based on what we've been told here, it takes place after Destiny, and focuses on O'Brien, Nog, and (I think) Scotty, working to solve a technological mystery.
