In a recent New York Times article, reporter Logan Hill interviewed JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst about their new novel, called S. In the article, Hill cites one reason people might be wary of the book: Note that Hill doesn't attribute that quote, "hundreds of forgettable novels," to Abrams; rather, that's Hill's personal opinion (which has no place in his article). Here's a link to the article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/28/books/j-j-abrams-and-doug-dorst-collaborate-on-a-book-s.html?_r=0 I'm sure this seemed like an innocuous remark to Hill; I'm sure he doesn't realize there's a smart and active community built up around Star Trek (and Star Wars) novels. We don't consider the novels "forgettable"; rather, we enjoy them very much. If this offended you like it offended me, please send Mr. Hill a (respectful) note and tell him so.
