Naw, the chalice from the palace has the pellet with the poison. The vessel with the pestle has the brew which is true.

I've edited my list above to reflect the corrections. (Except the correction about the chalice and the vessel. Now, who's on first?)

You know, with David's record of killing characters, and a title like his novel is going to have.... Oh damn....

Please don't see that as an attack David. I absolutely love your work, including the fact that you don't mind killing characters, since people die in the real world as well (something that was driven home hard for my family last night).

Una McCormack, too? Damn, just when I thought the list couldn't get any sweeter.

Remember, these may just be placeholder titles having little or nothing to do with the actual stories.

Oh, I'm very sorry to hear that.

Re: What is "The Fall"?

I know it's a huuuge long shot, but it would be awesome if David Mack's Fall book was dealing with the New Frontier crews. I've always wanted Mack to take over that series. I'd love to see the NF characters in line with the rest of the 24th century series

Is The Poisoned Chalice a working title, so named because it falls to that author to clean up whatever Mack does?

(I'm aware the boring answer is 'no, it's not that kind of series')

Re: What is "The Fall"?

Sorry for the confusion on authors and titles... the list was based on what Pocket sent over as the 'final' list. I think it began when I sent my initial list over based on the assumption that Titan was the second book in the series since I had the most info on it. As Pocket publicity and I emailed back and forth, I think it became the victim of a cut and past error on either my or their part, and thus, but the end, made it into the article that way. Errors are corrected, thanks to a few eagle eyes (you know who you are ).

Except the chalice from the palace was replaced by a flagon with a dragon.

Re: What is "The Fall"?

Here's some more detail from Dayton Ward's blog:

Revelations and Dust by David R. George III, “starring” members of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine cast (September)

The Crimson Shadow by Una McCormack, focusing on Picard and Garak (October)

A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack (November)

The Poisoned Chalice by James Swallow, focusing on Riker and the crew of the U.S.S. Titan (December)

Peaceable Kingdoms, by me, “starring” Picard and the Enterprise-E (January 2014)
I'm really psyched about the Una McCormick book. I can't wait to see how frustrated Picard gets dealing with Garak, or at least I'm assuming that's what's going to happen.

Dayton said farther down in his post the reason he didn't say what David Mack's book was about is because David hasn't said so himself and doesn't want to steal his thunder.
