From the Ishmael review:

Barbara Hambly’s 1985 novel, Ishmael, is a study in contrasts. It’s deeply weird, and deeply serious.
Her SW books are like that too.
That's what I like about Hambly! Ghost-Walker takes what could be goofy (a disembodied Kirk) and treats it with utter seriousness.

I just the Vonda McIntyre’s Enterprise: The First Adventure review.

Does she do a lot of weird stuff in Trek too? I mean the Crystal star was one of the weirdest things by SW standards.

Crispin did a great Han Trilogy on the other hand.

Have to admit that for all her political tics, she does have her moments. And I'd love to have The Great Starship Race adapted to live-action somehow.
Yup, this was a very good book and would loved to have seen this as a film. Can't believe it's almost 20 years old.

E: TFA had genetically-engineered pegasus getting to fly for the first time and Spock's cousin Stephen, an emotional Vulcan juggler, as the Enterprise ferried a carnival between Starbases. Oh, and Spock mind-melds with a big bird and ends up thinking he's one too. Weird enough?

^Her story arc for Janice Rand was absolutely first-rate, though, In My Admittedly Not So Humble Opinion....

Look at the posting dates. She's not on a consistent schedule. I'm sure a new review will show up when it's ready, even though that could be a month or two away.

I remember I liked Ghost Ship but have only a vague idea of what it's about. On the other hand, I still have and remember Ship of the Line very well. I liked it a lot and would put it up there with some of the best action oriented Trek novels.

^Picard locked himself in a sensory depravation tank in order to better empathise with the "ghost ship" crew. Riker decided Data was subhuman scum.

...oh wow, that reads like a TNG season 8 synopsis on twitter!

Wow I don't remember that part. I only remember the beginning where the Ghost Ship destroys the Russian ship.

In this case, he's talking about Ship of the Line.

I don't think so. Picard doesn't do that in Ship of the Line, I remember it quite well. He does lock himself in a holodeck for a while in order to watch episode of Balance of Terror though.
