That, with a little helping of Cushman inserting his opinion without need (i.e. "He was right.").

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

I'm reading the "Who Mourns for Adonais" sample in the new Geek Magazine and at one point it says "Pevney" when it (correctly) points our earlier that Marc Daniels directed this episode.

Also it says TV Guide "signaled out" "Shore Leave" instead of "singled out". I hope these are corrected before it goes to print.

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

So is the kindle version the latest/greatest version in terms of revisions?

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

Hmmm... the website calendar indicates the season two book will be available via Amazon in January. I hope that's so. Any one here know the publisher and can have that confirmed?

Indeed.
The legal council has a very familiar last name... Dawn Cushman

Also note that Gurian is listed as on the payroll, so I guess that is supposed to make everything okay about the issue of the photos....

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

I've looked at that page before, but he most surprising information to me is that the publisher employs a "senior editor." Asleep at the wheel this time, perhaps?

The CEO's statement that they are "absolutely about quality, not quantity," made me chuckle a little.

Anyone sat through the most recent author interview?

It seems odd that their attorney would misspell her own profession as "legal console." It should be "counsel."

Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

My frustration is growing a bit with this book. His numbered referencing system has quite a few mistakes. eg : p. 84 - some quotes from Shatner are referenced as 156-8, but in the "Quote Index", that number doesn't even exist.

(Yeah I realise that very few would be as anal as me, and look to see where various bits of info came from, but still...someone has screwed up).

Again, it's a shame that such an impressive body of work developed over a long period has been let down by a rushed/sloppy editing job. Given that I am reading the second edition, it's unforgivable.
