Titan eBook novella coming

It seems S&S is cranking up the number of releases in the eBook novella line.

A week or so ago author John Jackson Miller has announced on his blog that he will write a Titan novella named Absent Enemies.

My own Absent Enemies picks up in the "present day" of the post-NextGen literature timeline — and it is inspired by and in part picks up on the events of one of my favorite TNG episodes. I won't say which one yet, but for years, I had thought the episode held the potential for another story to be told — and I'm happy to get to do it here. Riker is my favorite character from what I still think of as the "new crew," and I've been greatly enjoying writing him.

Cool. Glad to see that they're letting Titan go back to being a multi-author series.
I'm curious about JJM writing a Trek story, the reactions to most of his Star Wars stuff seems to have been fairly positive.

Very cool! I love that they're getting into these eBook novellas more, now that the price is sane.

Sounds cool. It would be neat if Pocket Books released DS9 eBooks to tell the stories of what transpired between The Soul Key and Rough Beasts of Empire.

This is just awesome, JJM is one of my favorite Star Wars authors. He is also great at handling continuity and retcons.

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

Thanks for the kind words! I'm a lifelong Trek fan, and I was really happy to get the opportunity to do this. The novella is kind of a way to get acclimated to writing in the milieu, but I'd be interested in doing more.

So, any juicy, sexy retcons?

Welcome to the board! Been following your Star Wars stuff for a while (mostly the Lost Tribe of the Sith novellas, which I loved). With Titan being my favorite TrekLit series, I'm really looking forward to this.

John Jackson Miller!!!!!!!

Is it weird that I'm already looking forward to the writeup for the story on your blog? Your notes are always so thoughtful and entertaining.

Welcome to Star Trek! I'm a big fan of your work in Star Wars (which is my first love, in case my name didn't give it away ), particularly Knights of the Old Republic. Looking forward to seeing how you handle Trek!

I would absolutely love this. I'm a big fan of ebooks in general, even if they just wanted to release short story 'chunks'.

Titan is the series I am planning on reading next, so this will be all the more motivation to get moving on that.

Re: Titan eBook novella coming

Thanks, everyone. Can't guarantee how often I can make the rounds on the boards, but I'm glad to be here. I took my first stab at Trek with a TNG-era Scotty story I sent into Strange New Worlds way back in 2000; if I'd kept at it, I might have done something like this sooner. But I'm glad to have the chance now!
