Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

They're all definite buys for me - even the TOS stuff I'm not that fired up by. Guess I'm an addict...

Hmm. Sounds like Allegiance in Exile will cover some of the same territory as DTI: Forgotten History....

^And DC's "The Final Mission" annual. And IDW's Mission's End miniseries. Part of the fun of not having a strictly unified tie-in continuity is that you can explore alternate possible versions of a single event. (I wonder if this version will be in continuity with Crucible.)

Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

Kirk, Spock, and Sulu must protect the remote Federation colony of Ephrata from the dreaded Coven—beings from another galaxy who are seeking starships much like the Enterprise to spread from world to world, opening gateways between dimensions to eventually conquer the entire Federation.
Andromeda Galaxy?

Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

Hmm, like my friend Greg Cox, the description of my TOS book Devil's Bargain is based on an older outline. The colonial world is not a mining colony, but a producer of a beer famous in the local sector. The Horta are are recruited to help avoid an asteroid strike that's going to destroy the colony. Having fun writing it at the moment... Tony D.

Horta, you say? This novel just became all kinds of awesome!

Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

I think the last time I read a novel that had Horta tunneling through its pages was Dyson Sphere by Pellegrino and Zebrowski, which I read last year on recommendation from this thread on hard scifi in TrekLit. It was pretty good in the scifi department indeed, though somewhat clunky in the character department.

On the Horta front, it featured Starfleet ships with all-Horta crews filled with solid rock the Horta would reshape based on mission needs.

Sorry, but I can't resist this, Mr. Daniel... are you in any way related to Tony S. Daniel, the artist from DC Comics? Because if you're not, you both have the same first name.

Also, we have the blurbs for these but not the one for In Tempest's Wake? What is wrong?

Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

In Tempest's Wake is an ebook-exclusive if memory serves me right, perhaps the cataloging for these is handled differently somehow, or the requirements by the downstream consumers of blurbs for them are different vs. codices.

Welcome to TrekBBS, and thanks for clarifying. That sounds pretty awesome.

BTW, if you send a private message to Rosalind, one of the mods here, you can get a custom text under your username that says "Writer."
