Re: Comic-con news

All of this is amazing news. I'll be the first with a theory about what KRAD's novel will be about. Whatever happens in Destiny will fracture the Federation, and a mass successionist movement will split in two.

It's actually 'secessionist'. I don't think that will happen, although there has been concerns raised in the "A Time To..." series and the VOY-R about losing member worlds after, if you want fodder for your theory.

I hope KRAD's novel is the one that reveals President Bacco to be the changeling from the VOY-R orchastrating both sides of the split in order to reorganize the Federation into the first Galactic Empire!

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Still no New Frontier, very dissapointing (yes I know we have the comics) but i would love some new frontier books soon
I checked with Ed Schlesinger, who edits NF, and they're shooting for 2009 for the next novel, but he and Peter are still hashing out the plot outline. Once that's done, it'll be scheduled.

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?
There will be. It just hasn't been scheduled yet. Worry not.

Also, here are the covers for Greater than the Sum and Kobayashi Maru (mods, these are on my web site, so the hotlinking is kosher):





Marco and Margaret asked me to hold off on showing the Destiny: Mere Mortals cover until all three are complete.

Finally, having just finished proofreading the pages for A Gutted World, I can assure you that Myriad Universes is on track. The cover art just isn't ready for prime time, yet.

Hmm, well I'm surprised to see that still, that was the one in the Pocket catalogue, and seems to be a reuse of a Ships of the Line piccie. Glad to see some starshipy covers though, I'm not a fan of heads/faces filling up covers.

Possible Rush-themed titles for Vanguard 4...

"Open Secrets" seems like it would be very appropriate to the themes of the series.

'A Farewell to Kings'... I could almost have seen that as an alternate title to 'Reap the Whirlwind'... Definitely sounds like a usable title for something in the future, if not this book.

Looking through Rush songs... there's tons of titles that would make great book titles. I think Open Secrets is my favourite for a Vanguard book, though. (I'd love to see a 'Main Monkey Business' Star Trek story sometime...)

Re: Comic-con news

That sounds like an awesome line-up of titles!

I'm particularly looking forward to a collected release of Mere Anarchy, all of the Destiny titles, and (of course) Shards and Shadows, but everything sounds interesting...

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).
This sounds very cool.

I was pretty diligent about collecting the DC Comics run(s) in the 1990's, but there are still plenty of gaps in my collection, and I'd love to have it all collected together in one (very slim) place like that.

I imagine something like this would also help reference sources like Memory Beta, but either way, I'll want to pick this up...

I do love the Starships so.

I need to get caught up on my reading, guess it's time to get fired.
Can't wait for Destiny and it's aftermath.

Certainly great cover art.

I guess I'd better read my copy of Day of the Vipers pretty soon to get back in the Trek reading mood.

There's a picture of the cover of Destiny, Book 1 over on Trekweb's main page. It's from that Flickr site and is taken off a slide projector.

Fantastic, can't wait to get into these.

So I take it Prez Bacco will be announcing the formation of a grand army of the Federation to deal with the aftermath of Destany?
