He wrote two novels titled the Left Hand of Destiny, part 1 and 2. They were alright. While they were stereotypical in the way that Martok and Worf are about the only two honorable Klingons, it really gets weird with the villains and the means they go to. Basically the short version of the plot is some shady people from Martok's past try and overthrow him as Chancellor.

I wouldn't put it at the top of a recommended reading list, especially compared to the rest of the DS9 relaunch novels but they're alright. Hertzler does bring in a lot of plot elements for better and worse that were only briefly touched upon in the series like the Emperor, Martok's son Drax and his wife, the Negh'Var, the Hurq and other such things.
What he said.

If you're a Martok fan, you should read them. You'll enjoy them. There are much better 'season 8' DS9 novels though.

I would like to make a toast to Martok with bloodwine.

I probably will read them eventually, but right now I'm still reading "A Stitch in Time". I'm reeeeaally drawing it out, because it's so good, and I don't want it to be over.

Plus I'm reading about a thousand other books at the same time. I hate that I do that.

Re: The Martok Appreciation Thread

I've been saying forever that Martok is the best Klingon ever. Every moment he is on screen is pure gold. I like his addition to DS9 even more than I ddi Worf's. And I love his professional relationship with Sisko. They were such equals and the two actors had a wonderful onscreen chemistry. I would've loved seeing more Sisko-Martok scenes.

Oh, and the character was pretty cool in his previous life as well as a doomed Vulcan captain.

I also like Martok and he is probably my favorite Klingon next to Worf and probably equal to Kor. In fact, I liked the dynamic between him and Kor, as Kor had wronged him in his youth yet didn't remember, but Martok never forgot...and had his revenge later.

In Avatar(by S.D. Perry) Bashir's shown to be reading A Stitch in Time as it's a letter from Garak. Nog makes a comment to the effect of, "You're on page 100 of a -letter-?"

If you like Martok (and I do), don't get too into the mirror universe novels.

Signed?! That's awesome, how'd you manage that? Oh and uh... completely unrelated, where do you live again?

YORKSHIRE!!!

I was working for the Ottakar's bookstore chain about 15 years ago and Andrew Robinson was doing a signing at another branch (probably London). The manager there sent out a company-wide e-mail offering any Trekkies working in any other branches the chance to have a copy of A Stitch In Time signed and personalised. Obviously I replied back using mutliple exclamation marks!!
