Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

First two books will definitely be worth it - the amount of detail in just the excerpts bodes well!

Any further updates on when these books will be available for purchase and via what means?

I'm going to wait to hear someone received theirs before shelling out bucks, since this appears to be their first book, which to me sounds like-self publishing and I've seen those get delayed and delayed.

They did do a Kickstarter to raise some funds, so hopefully that helps them get the books out faster, but we'll see.

I applied for a review copy through my blog, but I assume it's a long shot.

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

Only the first season book is available, correct? If so, when will the second season be available?

Thanks to the folks with the answers!

I think the 3rd book will be extremely interesting. We're heard less about that season than the others and it would be interesting to get a detailed account of that stormy season.

It will be interesting, though probably not as illuminating as we'd like, since Cushman's archival sources aren't as detailed when it comes to the third year, on account of Justman leaving early and Roddenberry taking a step back.

Although, having perused the Roddenberry half of those archival papers, the series creator gave more input during the third year than most behind-the-scenes accounts suggest. It was still quite a bit less than in the first two years, though.

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

I hear ya. It should still be more revealing than anything done before, since a lot of accounts give that season the short shrift. Some don't even mention Frieberger by name, which is uncalled for.

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

I think I really want this book...

But 40 bucks for the book plus another 25 bucks(!) for international shipping (to Canada) is on the steep side.

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

I thought this was going to an eBook, no?

Then you wouldn't have to worry about shipping charges.

Did I miss something? I didn't see anything about an rebook version.

Oh I'm not sure of that by any means, I just figured in this day and age and since it's a self-published book right? It would also be available in a electronic format. No physical distribution charges.
