But TTN is not a one-author series.
It hasn't been to date, but if the current editorial regime wanted it to be, there's no reason it couldn't become one -- just as there's no reason that, say, Voyager couldn't become a multi-author series if the editor wanted. Indeed, if Marco had stayed at Pocket, VGR would've become multi-author after Kirsten's duology; he'd indicated to me that he was thinking about recruiting me to do the third book. But once he was laid off, plans changed, and the subsequent editors chose to stick with Kirsten. (Which turned out to be the right choice, since otherwise we would've been cheated out of Children of the Storm.)

So it's not like there's some rule requiring certain series to be single-author and others to be multi-author. I have no idea what the future plans for Titan are, but it's all up to editorial discretion.

I finished this last night, and I enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to reading Fallen Gods soon.

Re: TP: Seize the Fire by Michael A. Martin Review Thread (Spoilers!)

This week I reread Seize the Fire and enjoyed tremendously, just as last time.

The Gorn receive well-reserved expansion, and a good one at that. Another plus was the continuity with The Gorn Crisis, though I haven't read that yet.

TTN is still my favourite series because the characters are memorable and because I love the species diversity. Not until I began reading this series did I notice how infested Starfleet was with boring Humans.

I can't escape to notice that TTN's modus operandi is to encounter a (seemingly) pre-warp culture in peril.

Having read STF again, and being in great anticipation of The Poisoned Chalice, I might go back and reread all of the TTN novels. Hopefully the series continues after TPC.
