^Van Vogt was actually invited to write for TOS, but he couldn't adapt to TV script format or something, and nothing came of it.

^Not saying he couldn't; just offering an interesting bit of trivia about his Trek connection.

Re: Authors You'd Like to See Write Trek...

Since Spinrad and Ellison got involved, yeah, a Van Vogt ep would have been cool. Or a Matheson or Bradbury ep...

We need those - dammit where did I park the TARDIS?

(actually, it's at the Police Station on the other side of town, but with the streets this icy...)

(no, really, I'm not kidding, the Police station here has a TARDIS in their car park.)

^There was a Matheson episode -- "The Enemy Within." Also episodes by Theodore Sturgeon, Jerry Sohl, and George Clayton Johnson.

I would love to see another Andrew Robinson novel, whether about Garak or not.

I'd be interesting in reading something by Eric Nylund or Drew Karpyshyn. The only things I've read by either author are two Halo novels by Nylund and Karpyshyn's Mass Effect novels, but I very much enjoyed them.

I certainly enjoyed the latter. It might be nice to see Karpyshyn try Star Trek.

That would be interesting. ME has already struck me as one of the more Trekkish SF universes, so it would be interesting to see one of it's writers try their hand at Trek.

Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman and Don Perrin. Now that Dragonlance seems to have been shelved, I'd like to see them work in another of my favourite series.

If it was past authors: Lovecraft and Frank Herbert

Oh, if we're doing "late" writers, I'd love to see what H. Beam Piper, A. Bertram Chandler, Poul Anderson or James H. Schmitz might've done with a Star Trek novel. Anderson wrote a Conan novel in the late '70's, so it might've been possible.

I'm pretty sure Marion Zimmer Bradley wrote some Trek fanfic back in the day. I'd LOVE to read that. (I've always thought Ann Crispin's Yesterday duology read like "Star Trek on Darkover".)

Back to the living: Allen Steele would've done interesting things with Belle Terre, had he written one of the New Earth books.
