Too bad; I was going to read it before seeing the show (for a variety of reasons).
I'm hoping Amazon offers the option of getting the epub when you buy the print edition. They do that with some books.
If you read Desperate Hours before watching the pilot, it won't ruin anything for you. The spoilers I speak of are minor; I just try to err on the side of caution when it comes to fans and spoilers.
Okay, thanks for the clarification.

How to Write a 'Star Trek' Book About a Show Nobody Has Watched
Nice read, thanks for sharing.
Very interesting read. Definitely looking forward to this book (which is nice for me, given that I haven't found a lot of the new Star Trek novels that enjoyable lately).
Pre-ordered the book. A first for me David. Your new Titan book looks worth a look too. It's been maybe 2 years since I've read a trek novel.
Thanks, that was interesting. Just curious, did you only get the script of the first episode to work from, more eps than that?
^ I've been on the script distribution list all season. I've also been on the distribution list for concept art, set designs, etc. In addition to tailoring my work to match theirs, I've been allowed to contribute notes and feedback (via Kirsten Beyer) when I spot things that I think should be queried, either for science, or for Star Trek continuity. It's been a wonderful gig.
I think it definitely puts my mind at ease to know that so many fans are working on the show even after Fuller's departure.
I'm looking forward to reading your book - and I've not read a Trek novel for years. I think a lot of people are in a similar situation.
Sounds like an awesome arrangement for you, and a pretty damn good one for those of us who will read the first novel.
Review: ‘Desperate Hours’ Novel Tie-In Delivers Thrills And Insights Into ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ – TrekMovie.com
Good to hear. (If only that blasted preorder was coming sooner!)
I'm going to go get my copy when B&N opens.
Damned TrekMovie. My review copy arrived this morning. How did they get so lucky?
I'm a speedreader so read it this evening, but it'll take a day or so for the review.
Picking up the audiobook from Amazon right now, totally into audiobooks lately.
So given that the pilot was a prequel to the prequel, is this novel a prequel to the prequel to the prequel?
The prequel to begin all prequels.
Just started it up, and Yes, set shortly before Discovery. One year before Binary Stars.
