    Simon and Schuster have released the cover for The Stuff of Dreams. Looks like this:

    Still no blurb! But from what James Swallow has described already I'm looking forward to this return to the nexus, sounds like it should be a really good Picard story.

    I like it; bit of exciting spacey stuff (aka Nexus), and a starship. All I want from a cover!

    My niggle is the Enterprise looks a bit computer gamey to me.

    This is an ebook. What the heck is up with the fake embossing effect?

    On the bright side: they changed half the font in the TNG "logo". I still don't like it, but it's less bad than before.

    The saucer looks off. I think it's a perspective problem.

    Maybe it's a preliminary cover and the final one will be rendered in more detail. The initial cover releases are often of preliminary art.

    Possible, especially since this is electronic-only. Though with less than a month to go until release, the clock is ticking.... :)

    When you consider what kind of artwork they gave us in Slings and Arrows and the Corp of Engineer series this is a real step up for ebooks for Pocket!

    For the contrary view, I loved Mike Collins on the eBook line and I think it's a shame that it wasn't more widely seen. There was some great work done on the eBooks.

    I like the cover. It's simple, but effective.

    We've already had Nexus-Kirk retcons in Engines of Destiny and Crucible: Kirk, as well as a few Strange New Worlds stories. So that's already been done. And it can't be the only story the Nexus can lend itself to.

    Yeah but Captain Kirk fell down a cliff and died, that traversty needs to be redressed in the mainstream continuity of trek-lit
