Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

FYI, amazon has posted the cover of the SEVEN DEADLY SINS anthology. Looks pretty snazzy to me.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

Ah, I was wondering when they'd put it up. S&S has had a tiny thumbnail version up for most of last week.

So, Jimmy Diggs is no longer contributing, then? And is that how Britta Dennison will be credited from now on?

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

Cool, I've been waiting to see a color version of this ever since the last PB catalog. I'm really excited for this one, I really like all of the races picked for this. I'm especially curious about the Pakled story. Will it be the first time they've played a major role in a Trek story since Samaritan Snare?

EDIT: I just checked S&S's website and they also have the final description up.
PRIDE. GREED. ENVY. WRATH.LUST. GLUTTONY. SLOTH.The Seven Deadly Sins delineate the path to a person’s downfall, the surest way to achieve eternal damnation. But there is a way out, a way to reclaim salvation:blame it on the demons—taunting you, daring you to embrace these sins—and you shall be free. The painful truth is that these impulses live inside all ofus, inside all sentient beings. But alas, one person’s sin may be another being’s virtue.The pride of the Romulan Empire is laid bare in “The First Peer,” by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore.A Ferengi is measured by his acquisition of profit. “Reservoir Ferengi,” by David A.McIntee, depicts the greed that drives that need. The Cardassians live in a resource-poor system, surrounded by neighbors who have much more. The envy at the heart of Cardassian drive is “The Slow Knife,”by James Swallow. The Klingons have tried since the time of Kahless to harness their wrath with an honor code, but they haven’t done so, as evidenced in “The Unhappy Ones,”by Keith R.A. DeCandido. Humans’ darkest impulses run free in the Mirror Universe. “Freedom Angst,” by Britta Burdett Dennison, illustrates the lust that drives many there. The Borg’s desire to add to their perfection is gluttonous and deadly in “Revenant,”by Marc D. Giller. To be a Pakled is to live to up to the ideal of sloth in “Work Is Hard,” by Greg Cox.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

Very nice . I'm really looking forward to KRAD's Klingon story (his only treklit of 2010 ), and the Ferengi story which I take will have some Tarantinoesque sequences by way of its title

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

Can't wait. I've been looking forward to this ever since it was first announced.

Interesting how the cover depicts TOS Klingons and Romulans...

I can't wait for Mr. Swallow's Cardassian story. He's one of my favorite authors for the Cardassians!

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

^Neither am I . I prefer the Romulans that don't have the cranial ridges like the ones in the new movie (they seem more Vulcan), and I've always liked idea of the whole Qu'Cha / Hem'Quch Klingon seperation since it was first introduced in Enterprise's last season and in some books that followed (like M&M's Forged in Fire).

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

I think that the theme for the anthology is rather silly, but I've ordered it anyway, and I don't mind if we get some good stories out of it.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins--cover on amazon

^I, on the other hand, find the premise and theme to be quite interesting. I think exploring some of the defining character traits of the various trek alien cultures is a great idea. Wrapping it all around a concept like sin (the "deadly" one's to boot ) seems kind of natural. I'm actually kind of surprised that something like this wasn't produced before now...
