Re: Latest acquisition!

A great haul this past fortnight: a revised edition of "Star Trek: Ships of the Line" (top, last week), IDW's photo comic, "Made out of Mudd" (right), a special edition of Titan's "Star Trek" magazine (centre) and - as if via a time machine - the arrival of "Return to Tomorrow" (left), on the filming of "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", a collection of interviews originally slated for an eagerly-awaited double-issue of "Cinefantastique" magazine way back in 1980!

My copy of "Return to Tomorrow" arrived in Sydney, Australia, today and I'm thrilled to have it. Many pieces in makeup artist Fred B. Phillips' words, and several anecdotes on Billy Van Zandt's Rhaandarite bridge alien (variations/elaborations to known stories, and new info).

Also this week came a four-disk set of CDs featuring soundtrack music from "Star Trek: Enterprise".

Re: Latest acquisition!

I got a B&N gift card as a "solstice" present (my family stopped celebrating Christmas, but we still give present, so we just call them "solstice presents") from my sister, so I picked up STTNG: Cold Equations Book III: The Body Electric, STVAN: Storming Heaven, and STTOS: Ex Machina. I've been wanting to read EM for years, so as soon as I finish TMP in my TOS/TAS/TOS Movies rewatch I'll be starting it.

Money well spent for all three.

Re: Latest acquisition!

I got some more Christmas gift cards, so I decided to get one more Trek book, Cast No Shadow. The same thing I said about EM applies to CNS too. I'd been focusing on the ongoing series, but I've been in the mood for some movie era TOS so I decided to get these. Before anyone tells me, yes I am aware of Foul Deeds will Rise, and it is very high on my list.
I already have a pretty good idea what TOS books I'll be getting next. My top three are Forgotten History (both as a EM follow-up and because I loved Watching the Clock), From History's Shadow, and Foul Deeds...

Re: Latest acquisition!

I picked up my copy of Una McCormack's "DS9: The Missing" yesterday! Galaxy Bookshop, Sydney. And then it turned up under the Christmas tree this morning!

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Galaxy Bookshop in Sydney usually outdoes itself, although I do have to thank Simon & Schuster Australia, too. Way back in the 1980s, all Trek novels arrived in Australia by sea freight (minimum of three months after the USA release). In the 90s and 00s, Galaxy would air freight a batch for special and standing orders, with leftovers for the "new releases" shelf, to be topped up many weeks later when the bulk shipment arrived via S&S Aust.

Since the release of JJ's 2009 Trek movie, S&S Aust. have handled the advance air freight shipments themselves, and are seemingly absorbing the costs, since the books arrive - often before their US release - at a significantly lower price. (In the 80s, we sometimes happily paid up to triple the US cover price just to say we had the book before others in Australia.)
