Star Trek novelization makes bestsellers lists

http://trekmovie.com/2009/05/21/star...stseller-list/

Nice to see that. Just one question though, we used to see "The New York Times bestseller!" on a lot of book covers in the 90s, but I've always been uncertain if that refers to the series or the book itself?

If it says "New York Times Bestseller," it's referring to that book. They'll specify if it's for another, i.e. "From the New York Times Bestselling Author" or "Part of the USA Today Bestselling Series."

Re: Star Trek novelization makes bestsellers lists

Nice to see that the first Dominion War novelization was a bestseller then! Anyone have a list of the past novels that made the lists?

I love Bob Orci's statement.

I know THE Q CONTINUUM trilogy made the list, for which I give all credit to Q!

I think PAD's New Frontier series has had a few entries onto the NYT best sellers list...

I think the one or some of the last of the A Time To... books were on the USA Today list, I think Taking Wing was to.

Alan Dean Foster is having a good year. Trek, Terminator, Transformers... It's really quite impressive.

It shows you how far we have all fallen as a culture when the dopes that brought you Transformers could have their names on a best seller list. Talk about a parallel reality…
How true.

Heck, there was a time when Trek novels making the bestseller list was a pretty routine occurrence.
