Re: New Frontier Novels on Horizon?

I think the No Limits anthology showed that other authors have a handle on the characters. Id like to see what KRAD or Mack could do with a NF novel.

This! Mack's Kebron story from No Limits was awesome, and KRAD would be great taking the NF folks on a new adventure. I'd be there for sure!

So it's settled then - give NF to KRAD.

And get him to do a follow up to Articles while he's on...

Re: New Frontier Novels on Horizon?

Just finished reading Once Burned today. Great story! I'll admit that the part where Calhoun is blown into space by the photon torpedo while not wearing an environmental suit stretches belief, but the rest of the novel is superb. It's too bad what happened to Kenyon, but he's hardly the first captain consumed by grief and loss. I love Kat Mueller's character and wish she had a TV or movie role.

Don't worry, this isn't the last you'll see of Kat.

Apparently not. I think we need to show consumer demand...

Re: New Frontier Novels on Horizon?

It'd just seem wrong to me to give NF to another author. They're Peter David's babies (or have become such, in the case of Shelby, Selar etc.), and there are plenty of other Treklit characters to go around.

He does not own them and he knew it when he started writing them.

I never said he did own them. But he has written them for 18+ books, is responsible for all their development. They're his babies.

I doubt PAD would be overly mad if Pocket decided to give the series to another author. After all he comes from the comic book world where it is normal to change the head-writer for a series all the time.

Having said that, I hope the series will continue under PAD one day.

I don't think he'd be happy about it at all. Unless, of course, he decided not to write anymore and they THEN gave it to another author. If they asked someone else to continue the adventures, without even offering the chance to PAD to finish out his narrartive, IMO, it would be quite the slap in the face.

Re: New Frontier Novels on Horizon?

I never said he would be happy, only that he probably has been in similar situations in the comic world often enough to not hold a grudge about it for too long.

I'm probably one of the bigger PAD fanboys around here, and to be honest if Schlesinger & his gang decided to not work with him anymore (wouldn't be their first bad decision and probably not their last) it's their & TrekLit's loss.

I'll just buy and read his original stuff to get my fix. *shrug*

I disagree. I'd rather like another author, one with a bit less of the PAD madness approach.
