AIUI just because the Kinshaya were left out now doesn't mean that they can't turn up later since the Typhon Pact is the new status quo. It can always appear in the 2012 lineup or whenever an editor sees fit.
I guess it's wishful thinking to hope that we could get a TP Kinshaya story from a Klingon perspective written by KRAD.

The 30th, but books routinely hit bookstores / get shipped out well before the release date every month. Only those of us reading ebooks actually have to wait

Sure, but that never stopped any of us before. Besides, how else is the necessary "Mood and Desire of the Fans" supposed to be generated?

Damnit, people are already getting to this book? My base Exchange only just got Zero Sum Game today (and I won't be starting it until I finish American Gods). Bah.

^ The DS9 narrative was heavily serialized, and much of it was planned by editor Marco Palmieri. The interviews in Voyages Of The Imagination talk about how, for instance, in the Mission: Gamma books, they planned the Gamma story but the Alpha story was already planned for them, and there were certain beats they had to hit.

It is my understanding that the editors do their part when at least a rough draft is finished.
Not in the case of Trek fiction. The editor is involved from the start of the process, either selecting writers to do projects the editor has in mind or considering pitches from writers and deciding whether or not to approve them. The editor may then suggest revisions to the outline before the manuscript is written.

And as stated above, in the case of an ongoing series like the DS9 novels, the editor's role is somewhat like that of a TV showrunner, shaping the overall flow of the storyline and guiding and coordinating the work of the various individual authors. And yes, that does mean that authors are often given certain key story points they have to include, though it's up to them to figure out how to do it.
Hmm, i was not aware of that, guys. In that case i'll have to redirect my anger towards the editor. (either way, whomever decided it, i owe that chap bigtime.)

all my personal feelings aside, it was a real shitty decision. from a purely storytelling perspective at least. if i would break up a couple i would have at a bare minimum created fallout. but here, nothing... they didnt even interact afterwards. its like they weren't even on the same station. which makes the entire thing unnecessary and utterly stupid.

that again, thats just my 2 cents...

I received an email from the Book Depositary this morning, says it's in stock and will be sent in the next few days, so I guess I should have it come the end of the week!

Today's newspaper! That's hilarious. I was debating when to check my local BookWorld...I was thinking Wednesday, cause I have a hunch it's not there yet.

It is even more funny if you imagine Tuvok saying what is in the speech-bubble to the right!
