    Thank you for this added "TNG - Armageddon's Arrow" to my post-Nemesis reading list.

    Any update on December's releases?

    I'm aware the US gets wind of them before us, elsewhere in the world, so any titles yet?

    The items added to the sale page earlier this week look to be the December sales; the sale page was just updated in a peculiar way. I wouldn’t expect anything else at this point.

    Just bought eight more. I figure I now have 155 enovels or enovellas, plus at least three short story collections and two of the “Autobiography” books.

    I just checked my Content. I have 422 e-books from Star Trek - all bought with the monthly deals over the past 8 years.

    My current count for Star Trek books on Kindle is 453. Total Kindle count altogether is 839, so over half is Trek stuff. Kinda wild.

    Oh, good to know, I had assumed they were just some extra sales added on for Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

    Having gotten A Contest of Principles on sale this month I have a question for @Greg Cox. Is security officer Nguyen supposed to be Lisa Nguyen from several 80s novels? Or just a coincidence?

    Nguyen is by far the most common Vietnamese surname, so it's probably a coincidence.

    Looks like I own them all from this sale. Lots of repeats the past few months, good for those that dont have these yet and for those that do to catch up on our reading queue.

    Interestingly, the ones on sale in the UK seem to be completely different.

    So far I’ve seen the following on Amazon

    DS9 - The Siege by Peter David
    VOY - The Farther Shore by Christie Golden
    TNG - Greater Than the Sum by Christopher L. Bennett
    TOS - Excelsior - Forged in Fire by Michael A. Martin & Andy Mangels
    Star Trek V - The Final Frontier by J.M. Dillard

    Hey everyone...
    Just to add to @youngtrek @dstyer and @Leathco not to brag or anything

    My current count of Star Trek ebooks on Kindle stands at 431.

    Like all of you I have been following the Trek ebook sales since they began in March of 2016. I feel like I missed some though. Here’s to hoping MORE FUTURE Trek ebook sales, and new releases too.

    I believe the current count for total Trek ebooks stand at between 750 and 800 maybe? I might be off, but who knows?

    On the flipside of things, I’m also a Star Wars ebook fan and reader same as Trek and my Star Wars count is at 140.

    Star Wars sales on older ebooks are few and far between.
    All the best,
    -Koric

    @Koric sweet collection! And you may not have missed anything, as I started reading Trek on Kindle in the late 2000s, I wanna say around 2007 or 2008, VERY early in the Kindles life. There's a good chance some of the books I have never have been on sale yet.

    This is where I stand now, after buying all but one (Emissary, which I’d just bought in the September 2022 deals) of this month’s batch. Again, I started a lot later buying from the monthly ebook sales than most of you:

    I figure I now have 164 enovels or enovellas, plus at least three short story collections, two of the “Autobiography” books, and now my first Star Trek actor biography.

    My count is 267 Star Trek ebooks. Some of those are not ones I want to read again, but I also have others on my wishlist or that I read and have not bought (library). I'd estimate that there are around 300 Star Trek books that I like, which is far and away the highest from any series or franchise.

    Not Star Trek, but related due to author:

    Diane Duane’s Spider-Man: The Venom Factor trilogy omnibus is $1.99 today.

    I'm really glad that most of these are repeats this month, because it seems the Canadian Kobo store has entirely missed putting this month's sales into effect on their site. I'm assuming the December holidays messed something up on their end? But the only one I don't already have is the DeForest Kelley biography, so I guess it could have been worse.

    I recall that Kobo Canada "missed" a month once before, too... a search of the thread shows that was June 2020.

    Since the sales are in effect at Amazon Canada, I can get the one book there, then just read it on the Kindle app for PC.

    And also due to its editor, whom modesty prevents me from naming.

    I kid, I'm not at all modest. It's me. I edited that entire line of Marvel novels that were published between 1994 and 2000.
