I do have something in the works, but I can't talk about it yet.

Thanks for the schedule, guys; I appreciate it.

Is the Typhon Pact book due in October, or late September? I thought I had heard someone mentioning a September release.

Have we heard anything concerning a new Myriad Universes anthology? Those were particularly good.
FWIW, I picked up Brinkmanship yesterday at a local bookstore.

What I'm looking forward to is collections of Corps of Engineers and Slings and Arrows in trade books. I was thinking about getting them individually in ebook form but I remember them costing around $5 each, now they are $7. Seems excessive to pay almost the full price for a paperback to get what I'm guessing to be a quarter to a third of the content. And when you add them all up it's a fair chunk of change.

But aren't the characters from DS9 all caught up in the Typhon Pact series? So I'm guessing that means Mack's trilogy will advance the stories of their lives a bit, too.
The two recent Typhon Pact novels are very much DS9 stories, which also feature the TNG cast in a supporting role.

Though I'm under the impression that David Mack's trilogy is very much a TNG story, as it is meant to be a celebration of TNG's 25th anniversary.

Just FYI; it's not the working title any more, and it'll be out in March 2013, not December 2012.
Thanks! I edited the list to reflect that. (I also italicized the titles, since I wasn't scrambling to get it done now.)

I am not familiar with the last two TOS authors listed, Leisner and Mariotte? Have they written any previous Trek novels I may know?

Jeff Mariotte wrote 2003's The Lost Era: Deny Thy Father, and William Leisner wrote 2009's TNG: Losing the Peace and the 2008 Myriad Universes novel A Less Perfect Union.

Mariotte wrote what was probably my least favorite of the Lost Era books. I think it was an average book, just many other books in that series are favorites of mine.

I think Leisner's Losing the Peace is fantastic. I think at the time it came out I said something along the lines of the until LtP came out I felt the TNG relaunch consisted of some of my favorite ST authors writing what were not my favorite books by them. Leisner turned that series around for me. I'm looking forward to the new Leisner book.

Thanks Sci and Ronny I guess I do know William Leisner, as I read and enjoyed Losing the Peace.

Amazon has that listed as The Shocks of Adversity now. I guess the title is still in flux.

I really, really like it. I recommend it highly. It's been my "in-between" reading for most of the last month -- when I didn't have anything else to read, I'd bring it up on the Nook and slam a couple chapters. Very, very fun.

I did pick out a few typos and mistakes, but nothing egregious (For example, Arthur W. Saha, the apparent inventor of the word "Trekkie," was identified as "Arthur Sasha," and it was suggested he worked for DAW books in the '60's. Since DAW didn't exist until 1972, that would've been a good trick! Little things like that.)

As it also pointed me to the Frank R. Paul-illustrated cover of the October, 1953 issue of Science-Fiction Plus (edited by dear old Uncle Hugo Gernsback) as one of the inspirations for Roddenberry & Jefferies when designing the U.S.S. Enterprise, I'll forgive the author his slips (my avatar is scanned from the cover of said magazine.)

Re: Release schedule for remainder of 2012/2013?

I know there is at least one big DS9 novel planned to celebrate the 20th anniversary, and while I do hope they do more than that I'll accept it gladly even if that's all we get. The dream however, is for some kind of anthology along the lines of the "Prophecy and Change" trade we got in 2003 except this time be primarily based in the years that were skipped when DS9 novels jumped several years forward to catch up with the rest of the 24th century lit. I think an anthology of short stories is the perfect way to fill that gap.
