Sure. Maybe she could team-up with Marshak and Culbreath for the ultimate K/S novel.

Re: Author turnover: Why did they leave, and where are they now?

I second S.D. Perry.

I also enjoyed "This Gray Spirit" by Heather Jarman and would like to see her return.

I thought that J.G. Hertzler and Jeffrey Lang did a fantastic job with "The Left Hand of Destiny". I don't know if Hertzler would be able to do another collaboration or not, but I also enjoyed Lang and David Weddle's "Abyss", so I would like to see Lang return to Trek at least.

Me too. After "Nemesis" added the B-4 to the Data backstory, I wrote to Jeff suggesting it might be useful for a followup to his excellent Data novel, "Immortal Coil", but Jeff said that his only connection to Pocket Books had been via Marco Palmieri, and with Marco's departure he didn't really have an "in" for pitching, nor the inclination to do more ST.

Re: Author turnover: Why did they leave, and where are they now?

Given how well they handled the supporting characters of TOS and nowadays we seem to be coming down with a plethora of newer minor or supporting characters,how about the L A Graf collective for a return?

What about the old stand-bys? When was the last time we saw a Friedman installment? Death in Winter? That was nearly 5 years ago. Considering how he used to crank 'em out, it's like he dropped off the planet all of a sudden.
Agreed. Friedman and John Vornholt are my all-time fave Trek authors and neither has done anything for a while. Would love for them both to do some more during-the-series-set TNG.
VORNHOLT! That was the other name I couldn't think of!
Whatever happened to Vornholt anyway? I really enjoyed everyone of his Next Generation books.
