I admit I found the writing the new book surprisingly liberating. Forget the old continuity. I had a whole new future to play in.

Not that I have anything against the old timeline, of course, but I'd already done that over a dozen times before . . . .
Right. For me, the cool thing was the mix of the familiar and the new. These were still the characters we know at their core, and it was a chance to explore the formative period of their relationships -- Kirk and Spock finding a balance, Spock and McCoy beginning to test each other out, Sulu and Chekov beginning to bond -- and yet there are fresh angles to explore, new elements spicing it up like Kirk's early command and edgier attitude, the Spock-Uhura relationship, a more comedic side to Scotty, and so on.

By the way, Greg, have you had a chance to read the manuscript to Seek a Newer World? There's one passage in there that might overlap a bit with what you're doing in Hazard, and I want to make sure there's no contradiction. If you haven't seen it, e-mail or PM me, please.

Thank you so much for this post. I've read quite a few popular books on quantum physics, relativity, etc, and this still managed to explain a couple things that I never understood before. I feel smarter.

Exactly, but that's why I specified "readers of the highly popular DS9 post-series novels", a drop in the ocean of people who'd go to see the movie. Less than 1%, according to some old Paramount calculations.

^which is probably a larger number than the TOS purists upset at the destruction of Vulcan.

Re: Summer 2010 catalogue details

These are four books I am definitely buying. Looking forward to something to hold me over until the next movie.

Interesting date changes - wasn't the word from Shore Leave that it'd be Refugees in June, SANW in July, MBTD in August, and the then-untitled 4th book in September?

Which means presumably Typhon Pact will start a little earlier?

Re: Summer 2010 catalogue details

well, a June book would usually hit the street one or two weeks earlier, so it's not surprising to see it with a release date in May.

as for the months, my notes say June, July, Aug and Sept for Foster, Bennett, Mack and Cox. the SS website says May, Jun, July, Aug for the four books, but then the SS website also has Mack's The Sorrows of Empire as Dec 2009.

Re: Summer 2010 catalogue details

Quite frankly I think snakespeare has the dates wrong, since I doubt they would go back to two books in one month under the current editorial situation, even if it only was for one month.

^Actually, he doesn't. Those are the dates in the catalogue. However, I would trust the S&S website over the catalogue, to be honest. It agrees with the dates for the first three novels, but puts Hazard at August 31st.

There's no contradiction there. A book with a June publication date will actually come out in mid- to late May. A book with a January publication date will actually come out in mid- to late December. I'm not sure why that is, but it's the way it works.

Re: Summer 2010 catalogue details

Perhaps there is an error in the catalog and the correct release date for The Hazard of Concealing is August 29th.

The reasoning was that a January release will be in all stores by January 1... which means they have to start shipping a couple of weeks before the first.

As to why the official release date of a book will be several days before the first of the month, that's because as more large book retailers started carrying music and videos, they pressed book publishers to adopt the music industry's practice of putting out all their new releases on Tuesday. And so you'll note from the list of dates above, they all match the Tuesday before the 1st of the following month... which of course pushes the shipping schedule as much as a week back in any given month.

Ironically, New Release Tuesday may be the only thing that survives the end of traditional music distribution.
