Re: Comic-con news

The February, March, and April books are jokingly being referred to as "cleaning up Mack's mess." All three will follow up on the events of Destiny.
you know this is going to stuck for the next two years on this board, right?
Submitted for the board's approval: the Mack's Mess Relaunch! (or MaMeR for short)

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Full Circle will actually pick up initially where Spirit Walk Book 2 left off, and take Voyager aaaaaaall the way through to Destiny and beyond -- which means the book will cover a few years, all told, and it will set the tone for future post-finale VOY fiction.
I'm sure that having the post-finale Voyager torch being passed on from Christie Golden to Kristen Beyer will be good news to some, I have to wonder about the reasoning given the VOY-R's reported great sales. (Of course, I don't really expect to ever find out the reason, but will just assume that Christie Golden has too much on her plate to continue with the series.)

Over a Torrent Sea will pick up where Destiny leaves off, as Christopher picks up the pieces from whatever Dave leaves of Titan.
Awesome! I'm glad to see Christopher returning to Titan, as Orion's Hounds has been my favorite Titan book so far.
Yes, that's really Mere Anarchy on an actual schedule. It'll probably also have an introduction or afterword or some such by me.....
Yay!


Finally, A Singular Destiny is a little bit of a different beast. The people who've been clamoring for a Clancy-style political thriller will like this one, as it's about the political fallout from Destiny's events (which will be considerable). It won't feature any of the main crews, although a ship that plays a big role in Destiny will also play a big role here, as well as familiar faces from other parts of the Trek universe. The protagonist will be a civilian character of my own creation.

Oh, and those of you who want to see more of the Bacco Administration from Articles of the Federation, both the Destiny trilogy and A Singular Destiny will feature those characters in good-sized roles.
Awesome, Bacco is such a great character, and I'm glad to see her and her cohorts return. Now we just need to get some post-Destiny adventures from a certain SCE ship whose series ended pre-maturely...

Sounds like Sxottlan of Starfleet Security needs to saddle up again.

Perhaps the VOY Relaunch's sales, especially those of the first post-series duology, were so good because lots of people wanted to find out what happened after "Endgame"? Maybe no one cared who wrote them after all? (But Golden's track record was also very good pre the Relaunch, which is how she got the relaunch gig.)

You also assume that Kristen Beyer's sales weren't high? If the choice is for Pocket to keep waiting for Golden to be free, or to try going with Beyer, then why not? The "Destiny" trilogy may bring even more regular ST readers to the VOY Relaunch, and it's not as if Golden can't return triumphantly later on...

Vanguard Book 4 doesn't have a title yet. My money's on it being a Rush song......
After the events of Summon the Thunder, I'm thinking a great Rush Song title would be: Witch Hunt (Moving Pictures) or even the Album title Grace Under Pressure (where the initial story title Distant Early Warning came from).

Looking forward to, and will most likely be purchasing, all of those! Although with some trepidation over Full Circle, as I rather disliked the Voyager relaunch, and stopped reading after The Farther Shore. Maybe a new author will work better for me.

Re: Comic-con news

Wow, that list looks awesome. Hopefully we will soon get a clue what Destiny actually is about. But it's better one hell of a story, if it's occupying alomost half a year of the schedule... But since al my favorite Trek-Authors are involved, I'm relatively sure nothing can go wrong.
Anything new about the Covers already? And what's going on with the Myriad Universe Covers? Still nothing new about them and only 3 months left? Experience tells us, that means something's gone wrong....

February 2009:
A Singular Destiny by Keith R.A. DeCandido
Good to hear that Bacco comes back. And since you have proved that you're good at cleaning other peoples mess in the past, I'm looking forward to this.

March 2009:
TOS: Mere Anarchy by Mike W. Barr, Christopher L. Bennett, Margaret Wander Bonanno, Dave Galanter, Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, and Howard Weinstein
Margaret Wander Bonanno's name alone makes that a must buy. It doesn't hurt that I like the stuff by most of the others as well, though.

Titan: Over a Torrent Sea by Christopher L. Bennett


Very good. If someone is able to bring the series back on track after the disappointing Sword of Damocles it's Christopher.

April 2009:
VOY: Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer
Wow. They finally get rid of Golden, and hire the only writer whose past stories have made Golden's stuff look decent in comparison? I guess that was the final nail in the coffin for my Voyager-Relaunch reading.

May 2009:
Vanguard Book 4 by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore
Nothing new here, with the exception of the date. Would have liked to see it earlier, but I guess the editors are trying to get the whole Destiny related stuff out as close as possible.




There is also now an author list for Mirror Universe: Shards and Shadows, still set for January 2009 release:
  • Christopher L. Bennett
    Margaret Wander Bonanno
    Peter David
    Keith R.A. DeCandido
    Michael Jan Friedman
    Jim Johnson
    Rudy Josephs
    David Mack
    Dave Stern
    James Swallow
    Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore
    Susan Wright
Good Line-up.

Well Peter David is in Shards and Shadows, so that probably means you've got a New Frontier short story to keep you going.

Except that's a Mirror Universe anthology. While Cutting Ties is by far my favorite story of the Mirror Universe duology, I want more of the "normal" universe. As a full novel, not short story or comic.

Yeah, yeah...I'm being picky and impatient. So what?
