So I guess they're loading the shelves with TOS before the new movie comes out, except that really the new movie totally isn't coming out on time, so that's not gonna work.
New movie or no new movie, TOS is a consistently strong seller.


But we have, what, two new print books that aren't TOS or TOS-era from August this year through May next year? And neither of them is in the main 24th century continuity, either (MU and Enterprise). That's annoying. Gimme some DS9 for chrissake.
For what it's worth, Forgotten History, while mainly a TOS-era story, does have a frame story featuring the 24th-century DTI characters from Watching the Clock.

^ Fair enough about TOS selling well, but that's still 10 months in a row almost completely devoted to it. There hasn't been that kind of run since the move to one novel a month, as far as I know.

I bet part of it, too, is that the 24th century stuff required more catch up on the part of the editor. If I'd just taken over the Trek line, I'd be working to publish standalones for a while, too, so I could get a handle on the big picture. Possibly I'm assuming too much here, but it makes sense to me.

Either way: I want some DS9!

While updating my Excel-Sheet of all Star Trek-Novels, and assuming I didn't make any mistakes, I noticed, that Geg Coxs "The Rings of Time" will an Anniversary: Pockets 150th TOS Print Release. Congrats to that remarkable number.

That can't be right, can it? There were about 90 numbered TOS books, 40-ish TNG books, dozen or so VOY books, maybe 20 or 30 DS9 numbered books. That gets you over that number by itself, and that's not even counting the several years since they stopped numbering, which has gotta count for another 40-50 books anyway. I've got way more than 150 unique star trek books on my shelf alone, and I'm probably missing a few.

Do you mean just TOS books?

Sorry, of course I meant TOS-Books.
Summary of all Series is 552 at the moment.
Corrected my above post for clarification.

Any news about new Enterprise or Ds9 novels coming out next year.I saw that David Mack's Destiny stories were being collected in omnibus and will be released next year. I wish we'll get another short story collection of Enterprise stories too!

Cool stuff coming up. Maybe I'll finish what I bought at Shore Leave this year before the new stuff comes out... and maybe tribbles will fly... *sigh*

And, sneaking in-between all of that, on March 13 is a TPB omnibus edition of Star Trek: Destiny!
If this has any new material (new introduction?) I'll be getting this story all over again.
