Re: TOS: Devil's Bargain by Tony Daniel Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Part of the reason I decided to include my middle initial in my professional byline was just in case I got mistaken for the son of Trek movie producer Harve Bennett, who's named Christopher Emil Bennett and is the same age I am. No such confusion has ever occurred as far as I know, so either my cunning plan worked or, more likely, nobody noticed the similarity.

There's also a noted paleontologist named S. Christopher Bennett, but he's my cousin.

Wait. You're not the paleontologist?

I typed my real name into YouTube once and found an interview with a big corporate hotshot in England.

Re: TOS: Devil's Bargain by Tony Daniel Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I like to think that it drives the politician in San Diego nuts that the first thing that comes up under his name on Google is a bunch of Star Trek and vampire novels! (I'm evil that way.)

About a quarter into it. I knew the high level reason the colonists were staying long before it was revealed.

I haven't purchased it yet, but the asteroid approaching the planet plot sounds a bit like Deep Impact or Armageddon, not that I'm complaining, sounds neat!

Re: TOS: Devil's Bargain by Tony Daniel Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Just picked up my copy yesterday, but at my local store they didn't know how many they had, since their system was saying 5, but they actually had 14 copies, and all 14 were in the "Hot And New Paperbacks" section.

An asteroid destroying a planet has been done before in TOS but the partial means of its destruction seems unique as I am only halfway through.

Reminded me of an episode. Yes I guessed what was going on, and the asteroid destruction is familiar, but I felt it was different enough to make the book worth reading.
