Re: Titan eBook novella coming

I just checked my Shelfari account, and it turns out I have read some of JJMiller's Star Wars stuff. I read the first two Knights of the Old Republic comics, and I absolutely loved them. Knowing this makes me a lot more excited to see his take on Titan.

Knights of the Old Republic is the best ongoing Star Wars comic ever published, probably. It's definitely the one that captures the original film the most.

It's also an excellent video game.

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.
The name wasn't familiar to me (I've never read any Star Wars novels), but I have read all the Mass Effect comics. So I checked The Comic Book Database, and it looks like he was a writer (with Mac Walters) on the first three miniseries: Redemption, Evolution and Invasion.

More eBook novellas are always welcome!

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

I'm looking forward to reading this.

1) I appreciate the eBook novella format,
2) I've missed the Titan crew [Checked out StF from the library and didn't finish it. Skipped FG completely.]
3) a new author that everyone is pumped about writing Trek.

Welcome, JJMiller!

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

I'm waiting for the We want this in print complaints. They usually come right about the release time for the eBook only release.

I am also looking forward to this novella. It sounds interesting. And given that the last Titan book was a bust, it's good to get back to some good writing.

I think all I've read of his was a few of his Iron Man issues and that story he wrote in that issue of The Gathering I did a story for. Looking forward to a new author added to the TrekLit fold all the same!

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

Hopefully S&S will put out an omnibus of all the ebook only titles, since I hate not having the books as part of my bookshelf.

But at least what is in the ebook only releases is unimportant to the main storylines.

You can read them on your computer. As far as I know all of the e-readers also have free PC or Apple apps that you can download and then use to read E-books on your computer.

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

I don't mind reading an ebook, but I could see how the rise of ebooks would be distressing to a collector who can't have them sitting beautiful and organized on their bookshelf.

Make that two

Nah, it's not a real complaint, but I just don't like sitting behind my computer reading books/novella's, and I don't like e-readers.

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!
Welcome aboard ! It would be good if you can find the time to post occasionally, whether or not you've got anything due out.

You might want to contact the moderators regarding getting a 'Writer' tag on your posts !
JJMiller - official Star Trek authors (such as yourself) are entitled to have a custom rank of "Writer" under their name. If you want one, send a message to T'Bonz who will sort it out for you.
