Re: What is "The Fall"?

Really looking foward to the first 3 The Fall books. Any book with Garak must be considered a DS9 novel. So we get 3 as part of The Fall. Cool!


Plus all 5 come out monthly between August and December this year.

Okay... so book 1 is DS9, book 2 is TNG/Garak, book 3 is DS9/Aventine, book 4 is Titan, and book 5 is TNG. That's more series-specific than I thought. Although that may be an oversimplification in some cases.

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)

Have I missed something, or hasn't it been revealed yet who will feature in Mack's novel?

2. The Crimson Shadow by Una McCormack focuses on the Star Trek: The Next Generation crew and Garak on Cardassia;
3. A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack (yours truly) will be expounded upon below;
4. The Poisoned Chalice by James Swallow stars the characters of the Star Trek: Titan literary series; and
5. Peaceable Kingdoms by Dayton Ward features the Star Trek: The Next Generation crew.
David Mack said his book the DS9 and Aventine crews.

Why not the Titan book? Plot points haven't even been revealed. Is it that you don't like the series? Remember...it's not Michael A. Martin writing this one. It's James Swallow, who happens to be much better regarded than MaM around these parts...

Might not be an author issue but rather a character set issue.

For me, I'm not interested in the Titan crew at all based on what I read in Taking Wing and the Destiny trilogy.

That being said, I love James Swallow's work, so I'll probably give this one a swing.

I personally am not really interested in the Titan books after the Destiny and Typhon pact books, but i will buy the book because it is part of the fallen serie

Re: What is "The Fall"?

Titan has been boring and badly written for the last two novels, and before that it was hit or miss really. But James Swallow is good, so I'm looking forward to his Titan novel.

Re: What is "The Fall"?

Personally, TTN is my favourite 24thC series, closely followed by VOY. The multi-species approach is what I like the most about it. And besides VGD, is was my entry into TrekLit, so I'm always biased towards it. I'm looking forward towards its newest outing in The Fall.

I also love the multi-species focus of Titan, sometimes the stories have been so-so but overall I'm a fan.

When will the covers be released? Just four more months until Revelations and Dust.

We don't even have the cover for Rise of the Federation and From History's Shadow, the July and August releases, so my guess is that it will be a while until the Fall covers will appear online. The covers have been posted later and later over the last year or two.
