I seem to recall that there have been threads about John Erik Ege here before. Ah: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=173209 In fact, after we discussed it last time, the original listing became free: http://www.free-ebooks.net/ebook/Star-Trek--A-Touch-of-Greatness Someone needs to tell B&N. http://www.getfreeebooks.com/?m=200803 John Erik Ege says, "All three stories are consistent with Gene Roddenberry’s vision of Star Trek. These ebooks have not received any negative feedback, even from the author’s professor’s friend, who says that they are probably the best star trek books he’s ever read. Of course, I am biased, but I believe them to be, at the least, on par with other Star Trek books." Author’s professor’s friend.
