    A Stitch in Time is lovely, but I'm afraid Andrew J. Robinson just does not have Una McCormack's ear for beautiful prose. ;)

    I know it's not an official Trek book, but Una's Cardassian fan fiction story Scorched Earth, was awesome! It had Garak return to Cardassia triumphant after Tain succeeded in destroying the founders. Great alt-universe style story. It would've been great as an addition to those alt-universe novella collections from a few years ago :)

    Side note: the first two lines of Una's Acknowledgements page (for her Scorched Earth fanfic) are hilarious given all the praise for her star trek work in this thread:

    "I know bugger all about Star Trek. I also brilliantly decided to set my AU shortly before the bulk of the episodes of DS9 that I have seen."--Una McCormack

    ^Thanks!!! I look forward to a rip-roaring good time as I find all the things that make no sense due to your obviously-limited understanding of DS9 in general and the Cardassians in particular. :p
