Some thoughts about DS9 novels by DRGIII

I'm a big fan of DS9-show.
I like DS9-relaunch novels. I really like DRGIII books, but sometimes have problems to accept and follow some plots and events.

First of all, DRGIII loves to destroy:



It's OK, but for some plots there is no further development.
It seems to me that only DRGIII wants to deal with Odo, Changelings and Dominion. And there is no other authors who wants to follow and develop DRGIII's attempts.
But why? Odo is very perspective and versatile character. He was highly popular in DS9-show, but in TrekLit he is simply abandoned and forgotten after "Olympus Descending".
May be there was some difficulties in "Olympus Descending"? Some events, that closed doors for other DS9-authors? I know about "Revelation and Dust" issues, but it is the first step since 2005 to develop so great character.
And there is still a chance to get nothing about Odo and Changelings from other authors after "Revelation and Dust".

Re: Some thoughts about DS9 novels by DRGIII

I too would like others authors to start writing DS9 books - not that I don't like DRGIII's work with DS9; its just the 2000 - 2009 DS9 novels had more than authors involved and there was plenty of fresh ideas all round.

There was a scene between Odo and President Bacco in Revelation and Dust which I imagine DRGIII will follow-up on some day.

Re: Some thoughts about DS9 novels by DRGIII

I'm bias, but I would love to see Una McCormack write a DS9 story. She does such an excellent job with Garak, and she's written the cast before. Just never in the present continuity.

As far as DRGIII goes...he's not my favorite writer, with the exception of Twilight. Which I'll fully admit was fantastic. But despite that, I don't think its really his fault. DS9 has been off kilter ever since the time jump. I really hope it comes together again.

Edit: Apparently her TNG novel might also be a DS9 crossover? That would be amazing if true.

The key words are "on some day".

As far as I understood the next DS9-related novel will be published in far-far future. Only one... next year.

I like "Unity" by (del: Una McCormack) S.D. Perry. At least, she contributed to the development of Odo character in her novel. Sadly, she sends Odo back, because of "he has still things to do".

That was S.D. Perry, not Una McCormack.

Not permanent, but I suspect that it's going to be an interesting read.

Shouldn't this be under spoiler coding?

Re: Some thoughts about DS9 novels by DRGIII

To answer your question I don't think the news about Home Again by Una McCormack needs to be posted under spoiler tags the news is already all over the internet about this book .I didn't post any major spoilers about this book.

Yeah, you're wrong I'm afraid. It may be a really small thing, but if I hadn't already read the events of Peaceable Kingdoms, I would be pretty pissed that we have this new spoiler rule and someone disregards it because what?

It's all over the net?

Hell, the main reveal in into Darkness was all over the net, yet I and others managed to avoid it.

Re: Some thoughts about DS9 novels by DRGIII

Okay, I've edited the posts.

I need everyone to help me with this because I'm not up to date on reading all the new novels, so I'm not going to recognise where a plot of one book is a spoiler for another.

Thank you
