Thomas shows up, Will dies and Thomas takes his place without anyone realizing. He takes to calling himself "Superior Will Riker"...

The Red King does it for me. I also recently read the Sundered, which is basically a prequel to Red King.

Tom shows up in Imzadi II where he is freed and then summarily reimprisoned by story's end. As far as I recall he isn't dead there.

He also shows up in the Slings & Arrows short stories, in something that is a little incongruous with Imzadi.
Thomas Riker also shows up in the future parts of the Millenium Trilogy as a Captain in one of the Starfleet's.

Re: Your favorite TITAN novel....

Synthesis gets my top vote. That book did everything that the TNG episode Emergence (my least favorite hour of Trek) did not. I also loved the exploration of a non-humanoid AI culture. We've gotten a bit more of that recently with Cold Equations (which was also great).

Over a Torrent Sea would have won out, but the Dr. Ree/Troi B-plot just did not work for me. I also really enjoyed Sword of Damocles. Based on the results here I am thinking that I may need to read Orion's Hounds again. I remember it as a solid book and I recall the high points of the plot, but it did not really leave a strong impression with me.
