Oh that's right, I forgot about a few of those.
Yep, John Jackson Miller had a second Disco novel, Die Standing released just this past summer.
Right! The Georgiou novel! How could I forget?
Also the one by James Swallow. We're up to seven Discovery novels, and by January 2021 will have two Picard novels. That's a solid two+ per season, so far.

I like we have a Discovery book called Die Standing and this week's episode is called Die Trying. I wonder what the third Die --- will be?
Die Dying. Probably a Lower Decks episode title, tbh.
I would jump on that SO fast, especially if it's Mariner-centric. Then again, Lower Decks is my favorite series since DS9, so...
Oops. I'm mortified to forget that one, especially since I was just talking to him the other day.
I just want them to conclude the typhon pact series with some grand war. Then do a temporal reset, maybe tie that in somehow.
I don’t know if I need a temporal reset. I am happy to imagine the litverse carrying on forever in adventures unseen in a mirror universe from the new continuity
If the Litverse has to go I'd love it they just pulled a Stone Ocean and killed everyone off destroyed the universe. Just go batshit insane.
Probably not going to happen but hey, a girl a dream.
(God, I am so behind on the Litverse).
Would you rather have a reboot of the timeline, or create a PICverse where the current Litverse is split off from it?
Split off into its own thing. It's interesting getting those unfeasible stories in book format, at least.
A Lower Decks comedy novel will be great.
It'll be interesting to see if there's a "finale" for the Trek Lit verse as we knew it.
I'd rather see a split.
I can't see a Trek litverse seperate from TV continuity being financially viable (because Trekkies seemingly obsess about continuity 500x more than comic book fans where different continuities are the norm). So it's more a question of, do they erase the litverse or does it carry on never to be visited again?
Great thread. I clearly missed a big news item in Trek Lit: 8 books a year? Where and when and who announced this? Just curious. It'll allow me to expand into other authors, but I usually am up to speed on information like this.
Eight books a year started with the new contract negotiated in 2018, and indeed we only got eight in 2019 and there are only eight on schedule for 2020, all of which have now been released. A by-product of all the novel releases being trade paperback now.
Thanks for the answer. I'd noted the fewer number of publications but assumed it was due to the impact the negotiations had had, leaving a desert for a while. I'd assumed that we were in the ramp up phase back to 12 as various novelists began to make pitches and get contracts.
