    Sounds great. Hopefully it's better than Zero Sum Game :devil:

    Looking forward to it. Will buy it. Super-excited by the author line-up (another Swallow Titan novel? Yes please.). But I really hope we don't see the end of the Typhon Pact in the series. I think they're one of the most interesting aspects of the post-Destiny era of TrekLit.

    While I'd be delighted if The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses were even better than Zero Sum Game, I gotta step in and say that Zero Sum Game is a wonderful, well-written novel and one of Mack's best. :devil:

    I'd like where it was going if I was sure it referred to Ezri and Bashir bleeding out on the deck of the Aventine as it counted down to a catastrophic slipstream/warp core breach. :devil:

    Re: David Mack teases The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses

    Given that A Ceremony of Loses doesn't actually make any grammatical sense as a sentence or statement, I checked the link, and the title is indeed A Ceremony of Losses, not loses.

    FYI, the complete set of titles for anyone who can't be bothered clicking the link is :

    1. Revelations and Dust by David R George III (DS9)
    2. The Crimson Shadow by Una McCormack (TNG/Cardassia)
    3. A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack (DS9/Aventine)
    4. The Poisoned Chalice by James Swallow (Titan)
    5. Peaceable Kingdoms by Dayton Ward (TNG)

    I look forward to November as well to get my hands on this book - and each of the others, here^^. FWIW, I thought that Zero Sum Game was a bloody marvelous read and a great way to kick of the Typhon Pact series. I, too, hope it continues and doesn't get swept away too quickly.

    I note that Una McCormack is going the Cardassian literature route again with the title for her entry. Similar to The Never Ending Sacrifice, one of the other classics mentioned by Garak was called Meditations on a Crimson Shadow.

    As far as I know all those titles are still marked as working/placeholder titles, so basically just titles to put into the contract instead of Untitled TNG novel, Fall #3 or whatever.

    Dayton's book for example will almost certainly bear another name if I understood some of his comments correctly, since he didn't even knew what the plot of his novel would be when he put that title in the contract, and I seem to remember that David R. George III has said that his will most likely have another name as well.

    Might just be Ezri's time of the month.

    I totally agree, I'd like to see the Typhon Pact remain for a long time, maybe with shifts in membership etc.

    I also hope that the Typhon Pact will remain. I doubt that it can last forever, but I wouldn't mind them hanging around a little longer.

    A similar length of time that the Warsaw Pact lasted would be good.

    It's intersting how Garak is going to be showing up again. I don't recall him being in the DS9-Season 9 books since the Cardassia story in the Worlds trilogy.
