    Re: Janeway returning to Trek Lit?

    LOL I'm maybe going to end up getting four "copies" (3 paperbacks and the Kindle version) of Eternal Tide (well it depends on if I can find 3 other books or not for the "4 for 3" promo on Amazon), so I think will be able to say I've supported Ms. Beyer pretty well in the sales aspect in this her latest endeavor. I already have her previous 3 Voy. books on hand (those bought used) so that is probably enough for me otherwise, heh. 9/2 PS I did find another book to buy so ended up getting "only" 2 more copies of TET, oh well, guess I still contributed to the sales figures pretty decently, lol.

    I know if I find it in a real store before my order arrives I'll buy it.

    KIRSTEN KIRSTEN MY BOYCOTT IS OVER!! I'm lying in the shallows waiting for the eternal tide to wash over me.

    I've just cancelled my Amazon order and made one with Book Depository. It's even a few pennies cheaper. Thanks!:techman:

    Book Depository is awesome. It's particularly awesome when you live in Australia as TET is almost 1/3 the cost of buying it in the shops.

    I'm 60% through the book so far. Awesome. I missed my Admiral Janeway! :techman:
    (I also added possible spoilers to the thread title, just in case)

    Picked it up at my local grocery store yesterday (for some odd reason, it tends to get Trek & Star Wars paperbacks fairly quickly).

    Today I looked in a real book store.

    It was not there :(

    They have mailed TET and CoT is "processing". So it looks like I'll be reading TET first.

    Re: Janeway returning to Trek Lit?

    LOL, ok well I have one paperback copy I've been reading, one I'm going to wrap up so will be pristine "forever" (hey, getting this book made me happy....), and one copy "just in case", ha, besides the Ebook, which I'm going to use for re-reading since can get larger type that way. Am thankful that I got a discount on the two new books, though.

    haha I have two copies of Janew Swallow's Terok Nor because I loved it sooo much and my first copy got creased. So I needed a pristine one. This is why I should get a kindle, to stop me from such nonsense.

    Well, mine left the amazon space dock yesterday, so who knows when it will arrive. I also went back and got CoT... already had UnW.

    Hey.. was Kirsten already writing this last summer when she did that panel on bringing back Janeway or was that just "good" timing? :vulcan:

    She was writing it, or planning it as I understand it. Remember we asked her directly in a thread "is Janeway coming back" and she said she was unable to tell us.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    When you answer questions like a spy or a politician, then you're not one of the filth.

    Some of us always knew her death was a conspiracy.

    Finally got my copy today. The cover looks even more lovely in real life (and not just because Janeway is on it :p). I'm about 120 pages in now, and it's good stuff.

    I am so jealous. We have no post on the weekends here (because.. the country is stupid..) so I now have to wait for MONDAY. On Monday I can hope again.
