    Don't forget The Lost Years and it's followups.

    Hmm, like my friend Greg Cox, the description of my TOS book Devil's Bargain is based on an older outline. The colonial world is not a mining colony, but a producer of a beer famous in the local sector. The Horta are are recruited to help avoid an asteroid strike that's going to destroy the colony. Having fun writing it at the moment... Tony D.

    Horta, you say? This novel just became all kinds of awesome!

    I think the last time I read a novel that had Horta tunneling through its pages was Dyson Sphere by Pellegrino and Zebrowski, which I read last year on recommendation from this thread on hard scifi in TrekLit. It was pretty good in the scifi department indeed, though somewhat clunky in the character department.

    On the Horta front, it featured Starfleet ships with all-Horta crews filled with solid rock the Horta would reshape based on mission needs.

    Sorry, but I can't resist this, Mr. Daniel... are you in any way related to Tony S. Daniel, the artist from DC Comics? Because if you're not, you both have the same first name.

    Also, we have the blurbs for these but not the one for In Tempest's Wake? What is wrong?

    In Tempest's Wake is an ebook-exclusive if memory serves me right, perhaps the cataloging for these is handled differently somehow, or the requirements by the downstream consumers of blurbs for them are different vs. codices.

    Welcome to TrekBBS, and thanks for clarifying. That sounds pretty awesome.

    BTW, if you send a private message to Rosalind, one of the mods here, you can get a custom text under your username that says "Writer."

    I can answer that. They're completely different people.

    Déjà vu.

    (I had actually forgotten we had a thread about these before until now.)

    Ah, Horta - that's much more interesting, we barely see them outside of Naraht. So I guess the book title's a callback to the tos ep title.

    I am not the comic book artist, but the science fiction writer. One day maybe I'll meet the guy; I hear he's awesome. I do get that question a lot.

    ^That makes you one of two Trek novelists with that problem, since our own David (Alan) Mack often gets confused with the comic-book artist David Mack.

    But the question remains: are you also a San Diego County supervisor, Mr. Cox?! The two of you have never been seen together, after all...

    Shouldn't Darkcoffee get the 'Writer' rank like Christopher ? However, looking at other posters, Greg's a Vice Admiral.

    There's a lack of standardisation here...
