The issue of the magazine the information in this thread came from even has a excerpt from it as part of What's Past.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Pretty excited about the announcement of a few of those books (especially the wrap-up of the Mirror Universe saga), but pretty disappointed that 1/6th of the schedule is already planned to be filled with reprints instead of new material. The cutdown to one book a month was hard to take, but cutting that back to one book MOST months sucks a little more...

Oh, good! I'd given up ever seeing that reprinted in dead tree format so I'm glad it's finally on the schedule!

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Kind of interesting that Enterprise only gets one new book release (not counting the reprint) for its 10th anniversary next year. Oh well.

Also, the DS9 Relaunch only had one book to actually continue the main story. 'The Never Ending Sacrifice' was from the POV of one character and took place over the entire run of the DS9 TV series, so I don't really count that. At least 'The Soul Key' wrapped up that arc somewhat, although it teased a continuation that we may or may not actually ever see. And of course we're all still waiting to find out the fate of the Dominion.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Personally, I'm expecting that unless something else comes along for '12 that covers the gap, there'll be a DS9 anthology to expand on the missing five years to coincide with DS9's 20th.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

As an enterprise fan I'm glad we'll be getting a reprint of the first Rw novel and a new Enterprise novel next year. I just wish we'd gotten a short story anthology for the series 10 anniversary.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Trade paperbacks, particularly anthologies where the logistics of producing them are a bit more involved, tend to operate on different schedules than the mass markets, so not seeing one on the schedule (which could change for any of a number of reasons, especially for anything listed as coming out more than 6 months from "now") at this point doesn't necessarily mean we won't see one at all. I know that ideas for at least a couple of different anthologies have been put forth (including one or two I pitched), but so far as I know Jaime hasn't responded to any of them.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Dayton thanks for an inside look at how anthlogies are produced.It would be a time consuming process to plot out stories and juggle authors schedules to get the stories in on time to be edited and a book to be published. I still hope we'll get some short story anthologies come out in the next year or two. Good luck with getting your story ideas published.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I look forward to The Romulan War: In Shariel's Shadow but disappointed that this is all we get on the 10th anniversary. I know many of us had been holding out for more since we had no Enterprise Novels this year. A real shame.

Please reprint a stitch in time.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I'm clearly having a memory block, and Memory Alpha/Beta aren't helping.

Who was Shariel? Was he/it a deity or something?

According to this entry, "Shariel" is the Vulcan god of death.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

So I guess perhaps the theme of this book is snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, in a metaphorical sense since this isn't New Frontier.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

Has this been answered and I missed it? I was wondering why Pocket chose to announce the schedule in this issue of the magazine instead of the traditional announcements at Shore Leave? Kind of stole some of Shore Leave's thunder this year and the usual nook lovers anticipation to the upcoming online reports.

Last year trekmovie posted the schedule before Shore Leave, so it's nothing new. I guess that it was mostly Marco who wanted Shore Leave to be the time to announce the schedule.

And as far as I know there will be no editorial representation at Shore Leave this year anyway, so one or several of the author would've been forced to announce the line-up.
