Re: Titan eBook novella coming

I've been a fan of Mr. Miller since his day of contributing to the Comics Buyers Guide-- it's been cool to see him make the jump from covering genre projects to producing them.

Thanks for the kind words! I'm a lifelong Trek fan, and I was really happy to get the opportunity to do this. The novella is kind of a way to get acclimated to writing in the milieu, but I'd be interested in doing more.
Welcome to the jungle JJM

Really looking forward to this, love Titan & can't wait to see what you've got up uour sleeve.

Unlike most of the others here, I have never heard of Mr Miller or read any of his books. But you all seem to like him so I'm happy to give him a try, and any new Titan is always good news.

Same her to be honest.

My Star Wars Lit experience pretty much entails reading Deathtroopers by Joe Schreiber and I think I read the TPM novelization over a decade ago.

Anyway, I'm toying with the idea to get "Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories to get a feeling for JJM's writing, so I have a question for those more in the know:

It seems like those stories are stand-alonish, although they seem to be a prequel to a novel series. Am I understanding that right, or would you say it wouldn't make much sense to read that book without knowing Fate of the Jedi?

Thanks, everyone. Can't guarantee how often I can make the rounds on the boards, but I'm glad to be here. I took my first stab at Trek with a TNG-era Scotty story I sent into Strange New Worlds way back in 2000; if I'd kept at it, I might have done something like this sooner. But I'm glad to have the chance now!

You don't need to know anything about the Fate of the Jedi series to read Lost Tribe. The stories collection provides a backstory (set over the course of 5,000+ years) for the Lost Tribe of the Sith and what makes them different from other takes on the concept.

ETA: And like I mentioned earlier, having read it, I definitely recommend the collection.

Thanks for the input. I think I will give it a try the next time I'm out of stuff to read.

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

Welcome to the board, John. I'm always interested in seeing a new author's take on Star Trek. Don't leave in suspense too long over the plot.

So, if you're like me, that will be sometime around 2048?

Theoretically? Yes.

But I think I'll be able to fit it in sometime before the Titan eBook.

For those looking for more of his stuff, he's also written quite a few comics in the past decade, mostly Star Wars and Mass Effect titles for Dark Horse, plus a Crimson Dynamo series and a 13-issue run on Iron Man for Marvel in 2004.

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

Lost Tribe was eight e-book short stories that we then bundled and added a novella to. They're as stand-alone as it gets in the Star Wars world.

For my take on the 22nd century closer to our stellar home, I have a new SF series of my own, Overdraft -- physical book just came out today, ebook already available. There's also a little short story prequel here. It's a little lighter-hearted than my Trek or Wars approach, but the science is definitely of a Trek vein.

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

I'm certain I've read some Mr. Miller's comics, but I can't recall for certain (I'm pretty certain I have those Iron Man issues). I've been toying with picking up Lost Tribe but have so much of a backlog. I am eagerly anticipating Kenobi, though.

This sounds great, though. I've finally started reading the Titan novels and am eager for more.
