TNG: Light Fantastic by Jeffrey Lang coming in June 2014

Another book for the 2014 schedule:

Amazon lists a TNG Novel called Light Fantastic written by Jeffrey Lang for June 24th 2014.

I guess that is the Cold Equations follow up?

Fantastic news I hope this novel will also come out in paperback and not just be an e-book.

Love it. LOVE IT.

Next year's Treklit lineup is looking fantastic so far, I'm really impressed.

Anytime I ever see something with 'Fantastic' in the title I hope either Reed Richards or Doctor Doom are somehow involved.

That's great! I recall writing to Jeff after "Nemesis" introduced the B-4 character, hopeful that we might get a sequel to "Immortal Coil" one day. And I had more correspondence with him a few years later, but he replied that since Marco's departure he didn't have an advocate at Pocket Books.

How cool to see him back!

UPDATE: Jeff just told me via his Facebook page:

Yes, it's true, and it's a print novel, not only an eBook. And, yes, it's a sequel of sorts to "Immortal Coil"/"Cold Equations". I didn't know it had been posted [on Amazon], so thanks for the alert.

It's great to see Lang back in general, not just specifically because of Data. I always liked his novels.

This is outstanding news! Lang is a great writer and the blurb for the book at Amazon sounds incredibly cool. My pre-order has been made.

Thanks to Defcon for the news. It made my night.

Glad to hear about this. I've loved all of the Jeffrey Lang books I've read so far, so this is very good news indeed.

Great, *another* book to add to the reading list that's already about 70 titles deep! lol

But seriously, this is great news! I've been hoping for another Lang novel for awhile now.

Re: TNG: Light Fantastic by Jeffrey Lang coming in June 2014

A bit of digging and one can also find the paperback listing, which comes with this little blurb:
The continuation of the epic story begun in the New York Times bestselling Next Generation trilogy COLD EQUATIONS. A now-resurrected Data and his android "daughter" Lal must face off against the holographic entity James Moriarity, who is determined to acquire android bodies in order to live a "real-world" immortal life.
Squee!
