Also picked up "The Shocks of Adversity", the new TOS novel by William Leisner. It was only $AU 9.99. Amazingly inexpensive to what we are accustomed.
I'm a cheap date.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Working my way through post-nemesis trek-lit (I'm a few years behind the times), but I keep finding events on Tezwa mentioned, and all that stuff, so I decided when I'm done I'm going to back-track....so I just downloaded all nine "A Time To..." books on my kindle.

All you really need to read are the last three. They deal with Tezwa and it's aftermath. I had actually read A Time for War, A Time for Peace (the very last one in the series) and it covers the broad strokes of Tezwa.

Yeah, I figured only a couple of the books would deal with that plotline, but I get through novels pretty quickly, so I figured If i was going to back track for that, i may as well read that whole set.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Two new books out in Sydney, Australia, today!


Craft Book and How to Speak Klingon by Therin of Andor, on Flickr

"Star Trek Craft Book" (Gallery/Simon & Schuster) by Angie Pedersen and "How to Speak Klingon: Essential Phrases for the Intergalactic Traveler" (Chronicle/becker&meyer!) by Ben Grossblatt, illustrations by Alex Fine, phrases spoken by Dr Lawrence M Shoen.

Now you, too, can have a Star Trek sock monkey!

The Klingon book features images of several Andorians, too.

The craft book looks really neat - is that a new publication?

Yes indeed. I wonder why the "sticker" on the front doesn't say "Make it sew!"? Did the cover designer not get the joke?

25 projects including IDIC cushion cover, drink coasters, tribbles, sock Spock monkey, tricorder purse, dog vests, Starfleet uniform aprons, felt Shran the Andorian rattle (below), Khan finger puppet, Klingon party plates, and many others.

Just got paq’batlh: The Klingon Epic (http://www.uitgeverij.cc/publications/paqbatlh/).

Can't say I've been too excited by a lot of the books coming out over the last year. The focus seems to be too much on gimmick and novelty books, while the novels could use a bit more variety. Glad to see the long run of standalone TOS books is winding down at last.

Well, Archer may look glum, but I'm happy! Star Trek: Enterprise: Rise of the Federation - A Choice of Futures by Christopher L. Bennett is now in my hot little hands.

^ Nice! Really looking forward to this one. It's apparently not in stock yet at my local Chapters, but I'm going to be around that part of town mid-next week, and I hope it will be there by then... it would make some nice holiday weekend reading!

Got mine at Chapters Chinook in Calgary. I was surprised when I saw online they had 13 in stock, so I popped over after work. They had apparently just arrived, so they had to go to the back to grab a copy for me!
