Any chance of you posting the review here aswell as there? I suspect this will go on deaf ears again.
No, none at all - if I post it here, people won't be drawn to the site!
Well, that makes sense Thanks for posting the link

And not sure about the "again" - we have had a load of people come over for the recent reviews!
Oh I know why you post the link and bugger all else and I made the same request a few weeks ago when you did the same thing.

Since it is how I've operated for the past few years, no I won't be changing.

Just one thing:

I can understand Paul to a certain extent, and I can understand Dimesdan to a certain extent.

But what I can't understand at all is a mod openly endorsing a poster using this forum exclusively for drive-by advertisement posts.

Perhaps because as editor of the official magazine for 5 years, I have contributed a lot to debates on here, and do so in addition to the post of the review - so where there have been questions raised by the review content (such as my comment about the uniform in Greg Cox's Voyager/TOS novel review), I've then engaged in debate about it?

Yet the only posts you seem to do lately are pointing to a review and that's it.

Say, when Defcon posts a link in a review thread, if I remember rightly, he also includes the cliff notes of what he thinks. Just because you were the editor of a magazine for a while, doesn't mean what you do should be encouraged.

And as he rightly says, all you seem to be doing is a "drive by advertisement" and because of that, I have no intention on visiting the site.

He's posting a link to a review of the book. I'm really not seeing the issue.

And we are done with discussing it. Please get back to talking about the book or pick a different thread to visit.

I saw over on The Trek Collective that Dayton Ward is thinking about a sequel to this book. Personally, I'd love to see that! Who do we have to beg to make this happen?

The Trek collector site had Star Trek book updates and Dayton Ward says on his writer blog he has been writing down notes for a sequel to continue the story From History's Shadow.

Re: TOS: From History's Shadow by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!

Fascinating novel. Interesting that the invading aliens took an interest in the in the hardware of other extraterrestrial visitors, I think that more could have been done with that, like an encounter with species that wants to conquer Earth. I liked the reappearance of the stranded Vulcan from ENT, as well as Aegis agents.

Re: TOS: From History's Shadow by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!

Prompted by the references in DTI: The Collectors, I've reread From History's Shadow.

The book hasn't lost any of its appeal. One question popped up, however - how did Mestral deal with his pon farr while on Earth? Sure, he could've had intercourse with a random Human, but in NF, pon farr included a mental component that he couldn't have with a Human without revealing his true nature.

I'll be checking the posts in this thread again whether this question may have come up already.

In "Blood Fever", Tuvok indicated that Vorik could in theory meditate his pon farr away if he tried really hard.
