with the new movie out and Abrams going to Star Wars, any chance those novels will see the light of day?
First off, Abrams and Bad Robot will still be producing the next movie, even though someone else will probably direct it. So there's no reason that Abrams's upcoming directorial assignments would have any effect on the status of the novels.
Anyway, the events of Into Darkness
pretty soldily contradict a lot of what I did in my novel, at least -- or cover some of the same ground, making mine a bit redundant. The book would no longer work as part of the film continuity. I gather that's true of at least one of the others as well.
