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

I liked it, my full review will be up soon, but it felt like an episode from season 4 to me. Plus talking to Tony this week on Literary Treks

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

I like Devil's Bargain. I'm only halfway through this book.It's nice to see a five year mission story where all the Enterprise crewmembers are involved in the story trying to solve the Vesibean crisis concerning the asteroid coming towards their planet.I like the fact the Horta are also in this novel.Nice to see continuation of stortylines mentioning Janus 6 and the humans and horta getting along & working together in the mines. Merling is really delusional like Khan and wants to be in power and get his way no matter what it costs. Just to get what he wants including sabotaging the Enterprise and trying to get rid of the Horta.Enterpriserules I look forward to listening to your pod cast with Tony Daniel discussing writing Devil's bargain.

Thank you, I was just finishing up the review and preparing for the show. I think it will be fun to talk to a new writer!

I think he meant that it feels like an episode that takes place after the end of the last season of the show. I'm surprised you haven't heard something described that way before, I see it used a lot around here.

Yes, I meant it feels like an episode from an unseen season 4

As far as I'm concerned, season 4 was the animated series. (And season 5, because it had two seasons.)

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

I do know from talking to Tony that he is going for an episode feel; as if it was just one that was lost and so never seen.

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

I just finished it. I really enjoyed it. It read like a lost episode of TOS. I really liked the delving into of the Horta and their culture. If Tony Daniel writes another TOS novel I'll get it.

I'm just starting it but so far it reads exactly like an ep of TOS plays. Well done.
