A Klingon Afternoon

So I just finished all of KRAD's GOrkon books. What are some of the best Klingon Novels?

^It's ERRAND. And to the OP...The KRAD Klingon books ARE the best ones. John Ford's The Final Reflection is also pretty good

The Left Hand of Destiny novels are great.

I remember liking "Kahless" by Michael Jan Friedman when it first came out.

I enjoyed those books. Martok is one of my favorite characters.

I wasn't a fan of this one. The characterization was a bit off, and the whole "revelation" about the reality of Kahless felt forced and didn't fit well with established lore.

I'd also add Rules of Engagement to my list above. It's got some good klingon stuff in it.

Re: A Klingon Afternoon

Do you want books from Klingon POV or just books about Klingons?

There is also some neat Klingon stuff in Full Circle.

Re: A Klingon Afternoon

How about TNG #31 "Foreign Foes"? Or #61 "Diplomatic Implausibility" (which, if I remember correctly, was retconned as the pilot for the "I.K.S Gorkon" series)?

Did you include The Art of the Impossible in the KRAD read?

I've read every piece of Trek fiction written by KRAD

He's pretty much the Ronald D. Moore of Klingons in treklit, huh?
