Old school Trek authors here?

I noticed, of course, some of the contemporary Trek authors come here.

But what about those that wrote Trek novels back in the day?

Diane Duane, JM Dillard, Vonda McIntyre, Howard Weinstein, Peter David, the Reeves-Stevens.

Do any of those guys hang out here?

I think I might have seen one of the authors of the Vulcan's (Noun) books here once or twice. I don't know if Greg Cox would be considered old school, he posts here on a fairly regular basis.

Yeah, I've seen Greg Cox on here quite a bit.

I thought of him as being contemporary, though I know he's been writing Trek for several years.

Alan Dean Foster is here. He hasn't posted much, though.

garamet often drops in. She's Margaret Wander Bonanno. She and her friend, Gene DeWeese (now deceased), used to contribute to Psi Phi and I think they both jumped across to here when that site declined.

Jill Sherwin has been here (she's written Trek non fiction). Also Heather Jarman, IIRC. And Susan Shwartz (although her writing partner, Josepha Sherman passed away).

Ah, so Dean Foster and Bonanno come around and make cameo appearances.

I have a huge collection of Alan Dean Foster's books, so I'm a big fan of his.

I've also enjoyed Gene DeWeese's books.

You mention Jill Sherwin. I have a pretty extensive Trek library, but don't recall her name. What did she write?

That's crazy!

I must be getting old!

I was reading Trek books in the late 80s, and I believe you wrote your first Trek book around 97 or 98.

Time flies, but I still thought of you as a newer Trek author.

Good stuff.

And before that, she was executive producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe's assistant on Deep Space Nine and Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.

Tell me about it. But my first Trek book came out in 1995, so I was presumably writing it in '94--which would be twenty years ago!

But glad to know I'm not regarded as a fossil just yet!

I've seen his photo, and he's not that old (unless he's remarkably youthful-looking for his age)...

garamet has been quite regular at times. More than a cameo.

I've also enjoyed Gene DeWeese's books.
DeWeese is now deceased. I meant to mention that in my earlier post.

Three trivia books and a short story.

I own all of Bonanno's Trek books, but I only got around to reading Probe.

I can remember begging my parents to buy it for me the day it came out. I found out years later that it was a troubled book. What a shame.
