You guys sometimes have to take quite some lip from us, the readers, about your work. But at the end of the day, it's you guys who supply us with new stories in the fantastic universe of Star Trek on a montly base.

So for that, I say thank you, and may you all write more great stories to keep us entertained!

Thanks! She's actually very chipper this morning. (We've reached the point where she's bored with convalescing and wants to go on a damn walk already!)

I wonder if vampires write vampire novels. Sounds lucrative but I'll bet you had alot of drunk vampires. What kind of dog do you have and what's her name if you don't mind me asking?

No problem, she's a seven-year-old bulldog named Lyla. You can find a (frankly adorable) photo of her on my website in the "Just for Fun" section . . . along with various past and present felines!

A little late, but I'd like to add my voice to the chorus of praise. Star Trek novels are just about my favourite thing right now! Thanks so much for all the hard work you fine people do!

I agree in thanking the writers for the great entertainment. Also for coming here to post and interact with the fans, it is great fun being able to hear your side of creating the novels and explanations for various things.

I always feel for the authors who will often drop hints here of the months and months of writing, editing, polishing, then the cover art and blurb get dissected to death, and then the book comes out and someone will mention having just read the book "in a few hours" and pronounces it to be... "meh".

I finished up the new David R George III novel yesterday, "Allegiance in Exile", just as my plane finished landing at London Heathrow airport. Amazing timing! A very enjoyable read with lots of seeds sewn for possible future stories (and links to a few older ones).

Switched planes and started Tony Daniel's "Devil's Bargain" on the trip to Glasgow. So far not too bad. It is keeping me engaged. A few minor quibbles, such as yet another discussion about McCoy's dislike of transporters (but every ST novel is someone's first, so not a major problem), and I think I saw mention of disappointing reviews on this one, but am keeping an open mind.
