Re: New catalog entries - CLB, Ward, and DRGIII

^That's been the pattern for a number of recent years -- TOS concentrated in one half of the year and 24th-century stuff concentrated in the other half.

Re: New catalog entries - CLB, Ward, and DRGIII

Yay! This is terrific news I've been wanting to see a anotherTng/Ds9 crossover miniseries .Having a series of books take place in a sixty day period sounds really intriguing.Like someone said this does remind me of the mission Gamma books series.I'm definitely looking forward to reading these books.

I think it also just makes sense to release them back-to-back given the realtimey concept. You wouldn't want to sabotage the pacing by long publishing gaps.

Just saw that, the sound that followed was me suppressing my excitement as best I could so my coworkers wouldn't have more proof that I've lost my mind. I was hoping for just one book but wow this is cool!

Romulus? That's my wild guess. Is this the 2387 story?

Re: New catalog entries - CLB, Ward, and DRGIII

When I thought this was a one-book thing, I thought Section 31 and the apex of the Sarina/Bashir plot. But 5 books, and a TNG/DS9 focus, and I say it's the Typhon Pact.

Although I'd LOVE an epic novelverse version of the Hobus supernova, I'm not entirely sure Pocket are even allowed to feature stuff from STXI. So far we've had lots of nice little nods to the movie, but nothing big.

Re: New catalog entries - CLB, Ward, and DRGIII

In the novels I believe we are upto 2384 or is it 2385, so we are still 2 or 3 years away from he supernova that Spock was trying to stop with the Jellyfish in the Romulan sector. So it's not that Pocket's not allowed to use that stuff from the movie, it's just that the books are still not caught up on what occurred between 'Nemsis' and the 2009 movie.

Remember, between 'Insurrection' and 'Nemsis' there was about 2 years of story time, but between 'Nemesis' and the 2009 movie there's about a decade of time.

Actually The Fall is the first of four miniseries, to be followed by The Winter, The Spring, and The Summer.

No, I'm kidding. Actually it's a saga revolving around the Klingon house of U'Shur...

Would you believe it's about a crisis caused by plummeting prices on the Ferengi stock market?

And we (kind of) know that David Mack and Dayton Ward will write two of the other novels in this series. Both mentioned in recent podcast interviews that they are involved with a multi-book miniseries scheduled for late 2013. Neither mentioned the name The Fall, but I think both were recorded before the latest blurb in the catalog surfaced (Mack's was recorded at NY Comic Con and I think Dayton's was recorded sometime last week based on the conversation), so that's probably why.

I think it's just that they aren't allowed to do stories set in the Abramsverse.
