Re: Latest acquisition!

Hooked on Books, a used bookstore in Wildwood, NJ has an ample selection of used Trek books on a bottom shelf all the way in the back of the shop. Stopped in during my stay-cation this weekend.

Re: Latest acquisition!

I love Wildwood! I miss going there, haven't been there for awhile. I would like to take my 2 year old there to the rides on the boardwalk. She would get a kick out of the tram car of the board that bellows "watch the tram car please" as it travels down the boardwalk. I hope the community has rebounded post Hurricane Sandy. Its great that they have a store selling Trek books like this.

Cool! Received a Facebook message from Rich Handley today, who compiled the appendix of "lost" comics for the "New Life and New Civilizations" book and he pointed out that I'm mentioned in the notation about the lost Dave De Vries & Glenn Lumsden story they sold to Kim Yale at DC. I'd originally sent the anecdote to Mark Martinez for his site.

Re: Latest acquisition!

My new Simpsons' Leonard Nimoy action figure presents... Star Trek Pop-ups (Thames & Hudson) by Courtney Watson McCarthy; the new Star Trek novel, Foul Deeds Will Rise (Pocket) by Greg Cox; The Real History of Science Fiction DVD (BBC America); and Willful Child (Bantam Press) by Steven Erikson, a Star Trek parody in the vein of Redshirts.


New Trek by Therin of Andor, on Flickr

Scenes in the pop-up book include: "The Corbomite Maneuver" encounter with Balok's ship and "The Trouble With Tribbles" pile of tribbles (both TOS), Klingon Bird of Prey (ST IV), The Borg (cube ship, TNG), "Call to Arms" (DS9 armarda), "Bride of Chaotica!" (VOY) and NX-01 Enterprise (ENT).

Interviewees in the DVD include: William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, Zoe Saldana, Peter Weller, Douglas Trumbull and Christopher Lloyd.

It's a small world. I actually wrote the jacket copy for that dragon book . . . and both of its sequels!

When's the second sequel coming out again? The first two were really cool.

Re: Latest acquisition!

It's been a good couple of weeks for ST lit acquisitions, thanks to Half-Price books, and 40% and 50% off sales. I held off on getting the the reprints of the Gold Key comics, but then eventually a copy of the first volume (which had been absent) suddenly appeared, so I went for them.

Then I noticed that they also had a four book boxed set of the Lost Years novels. I held off again, wanting to ask about it here and research them a little. In the end, I was able to do a search and find a topic here that covered a lot of questions, and then happy as a clam found it still available so went ahead and snagged it.

Re: Latest acquisition!

I've been in the halifax/Dartmouth area for the last few days and was able to find a few novels at a local used book store called John W. Doulls. I was able get a soft cover copy of Imzadi, a copy of Vonda McIntyre's Star Trek III novelization, a copy of TOS: Home is The Hunter by Dana Kramer-Rolls, and the gem of the find is a copy of Una's McCormack's DS9: Hollow Men, which I've been looking for for awhile 😄

Last week I took advantage of Comixology's Star Trek sale, and pick up Spock Reflections, Khan, and Volume 1 of the Abramsverse ongoing series.
