    Wow. That's really a diverse and impressive list. 2009 is going to be a very strong year for Trek Lit. How much of my hard-earned money is Pocket going to get from me through '09?

    August '08 - TNG: Greater Than the Sum
    October '08 - Destiny, book 1
    November '08 - Destiny, book 2
    December '08 - Destiny, book 3
    February '09 - A Singular Destiny
    March '09 - TTN: Over a Torrent Sea
    July '09 - TNG: Losing the Peace
    August '09 - DS9: The Soul Key
    September '09 - DS9: The Never-Ending Sacrifice
    November '09 - TTN untitled

    These are all must-reads for me. And depending on the reviews and reception to Kirsten Beyer's VOY novels, I may actually have to give new VOY novels a chance for the first time in, well, ever!

    I will. I've done so before when books like After the Fall came out hardcover, and I don't particularly mind since the interval between NF books is such that by the time the next entry rolls around, the reprint will have been released / will soon to be released.

    Which is fair enough, but Therin was directing that response at a guy whose screen name is captcalhoun. I guess he might feel differently!

    As far as I know, no previous trades have been rereleased as MMPBs. Am I wrong about that?

    Yes, you are. The Lives of Dax was originally a trade paperback and then was re-issued with the post-finale Deep Space Nine logo as a mass-media paperback. I think there was another case, but my head cold is preventing my brain from working.

    Hm. Thanks, I had forgotten about that.

    Either way, it's not particularly common.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I just finished adding all of this info to Memory Beta. So feel free to check the stuff out if you want to.

    I also was wondering if anyone here knows how to change the name of an entry there, because I accidently made one for Over A Torrrent Sea, instead of Over a Torrent Sea.

    Exactly. I didn't think it was necessarily to point out the link there. ;)

    I was assuming that captcalhoun would be buying whichever version turns up first, so it just seemed an odd concern coming from him.

    I think I'll be buying an omnibus that contains books I already own for the first time.

    I guess it'll be about the size of These Haunted Seas.

    When queried, Margaret answered that novelizations "happen very quickly". Nothing definite was said about a) if there was going to be one; b) who might be in line to write it. There were a number of times during the Pocket Presentation, and on a couple of panels Saturday, when Margaret/Marco said they were focusing on the 24th century "leaving JJ alone" with the 23rd.

    To answer some other queries in the thread - the Gorkon and the Bacco administration are in the Destiny trilogy.

    Shore Leave is a blast!

    Well damn, I did not catch that either. I will probably be buying this as well.

    If anyone is interested, I have updated my MS Word document containing ALL Star Trek fiction published since Bantam, with the exception of the Shatnerverse and Young Adult books.

    PM me with your email address and I'll email it across. Please specify Word 2007 or Word 97-03.

    I'lll be buying everything except the ST101, the 2009 calendar and Errand of Fury since I don't yet own the previous ones. I need to save some money.

    Didn't someone (TerriO?) swear up and down that Mere Anarchy would never see a dead tree edition, something like a year ago? Not that I'm complaining.

    What, another re-telling of the Klingons' destruction of the Guardian? Really, that trilogy was two parts retelling, one part original as it was. Not that I didn't love the alt-McCoy story at least.

    I'm certainly not complaining either.

    Although I don't own any eBooks, I had been keeping my fingers crossed for a print version of Mere Anarchy

    ^ For my part, I'm hoping this means we might see Slings and Arrows in assassinated arboreal format year after next.
