I realise this will come across like a fabulously wealthy man complaining that his massive piles of gold aren't quite shiny enough for him, but...

No DS9-R after Fearful Symmetry?

It's only the first few books of the year announced so far, doesn't mean there couldn't be new DS9-r, New Frontier, Enterprise, TNG, etc etc out later in the year.

Exactly. We've seen only, what? The first five or so months of releases? If the latter half of 2009 is anything like the first half, Pocket Books will be getting quite a bit of my money. That first half is loaded.

All I'm going to say is that I'm going to have to allocate money and save up now for all of these great works coming out next year!

Hi, folks! Had a good time at the con, and right now I'm posting from my laptop at the New York Public Library.

The most reassuring thing about the book list (which sounds great) is that David Mack will let some characters live
Never assume.
Actually, the books by Keith, Kirsten and me will revolve entirely around Mr. Mot, Mortimer Harren, and Ensign Panyarachun. Not necessarily in that order.

Anything new about the Covers already?
As Keith said, some covers were revealed, and should be online soon. I'll just say I'm pleased with the Greater Than the Sum cover, and that the cover to Destiny Book 2 is gorgeous.

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....
Not wrong, just slow, and only where the covers are concerned. The duology is still on track for July/August release.

By the way, there's a bit more Trek news from Comic-Con that's not novel-related. I happened across the booth for GIT, the company that has put out DVD-ROM collections of the entire runs of various Marvel comics (their Amazing Spider-Man collection was invaluable to me in researching Drowned in Thunder), and they had posters up proclaiming that a complete DVD collection of Star Trek comics is coming this fall. I asked the people there about it, and they said it's due in October and will contain the complete runs of "all four" publishers of Trek comics. I didn't find out for certain, but I guess if you count Wildstorm as part of DC, that would pretty much cover everything pre-IDW (Gold Key, Marvel '80s, the two DC runs, Malibu's DS9, Marvel '90s, and Wildstorm). Hopefully that's what they meant, but don't take my word for it. Anyway, this is great news, since I've been wanting to catch up on the comics from the '90s that I missed, but it's very hard to find back issues of them (and I don't have the shelf space for them anyway).

Re: Comic-con news

Thanks for the news, Christopher. I've been getting back into Trek comics thanks to the IDW run recently, and I can't wait to go back and read some of the DC Comics that I grew up on as a kid.

Re: Comic-con news

Woooow! I have most of Marvel and WildStorm, but my DC sets are full of holes, everything in a set of DVDs would be fantastic *rocks with excitement*

That's awesome! I'll buy it.

And it's not completely unrelated to the novels, as several comic characters have shown up in the lit. "moron"/Bernie/Kobry from DC's first run showed up in Strike Zone, which also wrapped up one of PAD's comic storylines. Several of Diane Duane's novel characters showed up in the comics. Transporter chief Sara Tuchinsky from DC's second run appeared in Mere Anarchy: The Blood-Dimmed Tide, IIRC.

From Marvel, Burns-With-Moving Grace from Early Voyages appeared in Where Time Stands Still and Burning Dreams. Pava from Marvel's Starfleet Academy book has appeared in three Titan books (BTW, Christopher, check your e-mail for my traditional request-to-the-Titan-author-to-include-Pava-in-your-book message.) Part of Marta Batanides' backstory from the SA comic was used in Section 31: Rogue, and one of Omega Squad's adventures from SA was mentioned in Mission Gamma: Cathedral.

And, of course Wildstorm's DS9 comics were all compatable with the post-finale DS9 fiction, sharing the characters of Vaughn, Shar and Jast.

Re: Comic-con news

Wow, I have been looking forward to read this thread all day but had to wait because my husband had to do some urgent computer maintenance.

I love the idea of putting comics on DVD-ROMs! I will certainly get the Spider-Man and Star Trek ones! I will see how this practically works but an additional incentive would certainly be some extras, some behind-the-scenes stuff what you also get when you buy movies or boxed sets.

"Mack`s Mess" - I love that! Well... if I will stick with that will depend. It could be "Mack`s Mess" or "Mack`s Masterpiece". Or maybe both will be correct. A masterpiece can also be messy.

Anyway, I can certainly say that I am very curious to find out what I will think. I welcome the news of more Bacco and who this civilian character will be. KRAD has created some very memorable characters and whoever this man or woman is, he or she could add a lot to the Star Trek universe.

I am happy that there will be more Titan and Vanguard. Voyager, we will see... At least it is good that there is more.

I was hoping to find some NF news (I know, I am greedy) but am aware that the next book will probably be a hardcover and could be added at any time. After everyone else seems to get a good Destiny treatment, I hope NF won`t be the exception.

You missed Elizabeth Sherwood's cameo appearance in the novel "Gemini" by Mike Barr.

The company's website has two Star Trek DVD Roms listed, Star Trek: The Complete Collection, due late 2008, and Star Trek: TOS due early 2009.

But is it the same Elizabeth Sherwood? Gemini is set in 2267, while DC's Who's Who in Star Trek tells us that the comic Sherwood was one of Spock's trainees in TWOK, set in 2285.

Re: Comic-con news

I'm glad KRAD you're going to have Bacco returning in your Singular Destiny novel I liked her character in the ATime to series.and that Titan will be continuing where the Destiny books leaves off. Sounds like we're going to have some really cool books coming out.
