There will be more. Be patient.
When and where (e.g. a convention) is the next announcement?
Maybe no announcements until the fallout of the recent sale of Simon & Schuster.
Sticking an embed for posterity:
Nice cover art I'm looking forward to getting another Picard book with Seven's back story after Voyager in a novel And what made her decided to join the Fenris rangers before meeting Picard in the tv series.
Broken record poster is asking about any new novels for 2024?
If there were we would have already have posted about it.
Seems like OP was asking if there are any rumors about as to upcoming developments, by way of conversation starter. Doesn't strike me as an impertinent question on a Star Trek Literature bulletin board, particularly as an author had hinted several months ago (above) that some news might be forthcoming soon.
Again, if there had been we'd have already posted that in this thread. The sad reality is, there simply isn't anything to report regarding Trek novels these days.
They already have stopped releasing German Trek novels without further explanation. So there is time for catching up on my pile of unread books.
Is this one already known by @Greg Cox ?
Star Trek -The Original Series: Lost to Eternity in July 2024
A thrilling new Star Trek “movie era” novel from New York Times bestselling author Greg Cox!
Three Eras. Three Mysteries. One Ancient Enemy?
2024: Almost forty years ago, marine biologist Gillian Armstrong stormed away from her dream job at San Francisco’s Cetacean Institute—and was never seen or heard from again. Now a new true crime podcast has reopened that cold case, but investigator Melinda Silver has no idea that her search for the truth about Gillian’s disappearance will ultimately stretch across time and space—and attract the attention of a ruthless obsessive with his own secret agenda.
2268: The USS Enterprise’s five-year mission is interrupted when Captain James T. Kirk and his crew set out to recover an abducted Federation scientist whose classified secrets are being sought by the Klingons as well. The trail leads to a barbaric world off limits to both Starfleet and the Klingon Empire—and an ageless mastermind on a quest for eternity.
2292: The Osori, an ancient alien species, has finally agreed to establish relations with its much younger neighbors: the Federation, the Klingons, and the Romulans. A joint mission involving ships from all three powers, including the Enterprise-A, turns explosive when one of the Osori envoys is apparently killed. Each side blames the others, but the truth lies buried deep, nearly three hundred years in the past…
Wasn't it Gillian Taylor?
Nope, this is a new one. Good find.
Sounds like a good book too.
Well, it's not the first time a blurb or cover made an obvious mistake.
Also, the Cetacean Institute was in Sausalito, across the bridge.
Bay Area nitpicking aside, I absolutely love the idea of TVH being retold as a true-crime cold-case podcast. There are probably going to be a bunch of angry people on a subreddit, too.
There was a story in the Strange New Worlds VI anthology, "Whales Weep Not" by Juanita Notle, where a detective investigated Gillian's disappearance. I didn't find it convincing, because every witness the detective interviewed described events exactly as they happened in the movie down to the last detail, with no errors or inconsistencies. It would've been more realistic, and more interesting, if the witnesses had misremembered details and filtered things through their personal biases, with the detective having to sort through the inconsistencies.
Also found a new book by Dayton Ward coming in May 2024, TNG Pliable Truths
And there we have it. Three new novels in 2024. We've now exceeded 2023's output.
Thanks for finally telling us about 2 novels, and one TOS. Going to check Amazon...
On the Apple eBook store, the audiobooks for both new novels are already listed for preorder, but the print (well, text) editions haven't populated yet. Probably will sometime this week.
Sorry, @Greg Cox , I know how you feel about that, and I'm just kidding. Please don't discommendate me!
In all seriousness, both books sound great, and I'm looking forward to seeing these next year!
No Kindle for the new TNG book?
