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.
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.
I can answer that. They're completely different people.

Déjà vu.

Ah, Horta - that's much more interesting, we barely see them outside of Naraht. So I guess the book title's a callback to the tos ep title.

Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

I am not the comic book artist, but the science fiction writer. One day maybe I'll meet the guy; I hear he's awesome. I do get that question a lot.

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

^That makes you one of two Trek novelists with that problem, since our own David (Alan) Mack often gets confused with the comic-book artist David Mack.

But the question remains: are you also a San Diego County supervisor, Mr. Cox?! The two of you have never been seen together, after all...

Re: Blurbs for the 2013 TOS novels

Shouldn't Darkcoffee get the 'Writer' rank like Christopher ? However, looking at other posters, Greg's a Vice Admiral.

There's a lack of standardisation here...

Welcome, it's always nice to get another author around here.
This sounds very interesting.
