I am - generally speaking - not a reader of fiction based on TV series, so I thought I would ask this question of the experts... Are there any examples of well established, critically acclaimed authors writing Trek novels? And are they any good? Michael Moorcock has written a Doctor Who novel. It's not his best work, but is a distinct cut above others I've sampled and quickly binned. I know there were some fine science fiction authors who worked on TOS (Harlan Ellison, Richard Matheson and so on). How about Trek novels?
