so I just got a notification from Chapters that this book is now shipping in Canada.
I suppose I could get an early copy at the S&S table at NYCC?
I’ve just been notified that my copy is in the post so should be here in a couple of days.
Be a while before I read it though as I’m way behind on the 24th century timeline.
My book should be coming in the mail soon.
im hoping my local Barnes and Noble will put it out on bookshelves early this Friday. It will make a great birthday present to myself.
Yes, you certainly can. Booth #2128. I will be there late on Thursday afternoon (4pm to close), and again on Friday (4pm to close). I'll also be lurking in the booth briefly on Saturday afternoon during Kirsten Beyer's signing.
Will try to catch you on Thursday. When is Kirsten signing?
Kirsten Beyer will be signing in Booth 2128 on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 3pm to 4pm. (Before that, she will be on stage during the first part of the Star Trek presentation in the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, starting at 1pm.)
Expecting to see my copy at my local indy bookseller within the week, then.
I just got my copy in the mail today. What’s with the sandy-feeling cover? It feels like I’m trying to hold sandpaper or maybe a book that was dunked in flour.
For any other e-book readers out there, that version is released on Tuesday.
In about 2.5 chapters in. The Picard chapter was good, but the switch from 3rd to 1st person is not that good. This Nausicaan that is in the 1.5 chapters, really doesn’t sound interesting and I’m almost ready to skip his chapters.
i just finished Chapter 2. It was written in the first person and was very confusing trying to figure out who was speaking, as mid-way through the chapter it switched to a completely different character. I think the first part was following Okona from “The Outrageous Okona”, while the last half was the Nausicaan that was introduced in the Prologue, but I’m not too sure.
So I’ve been reading some more. Yeah, I’m finding the 1st person sections are really clunky and just slow down the pace. Even though they are part of the story, it feels like they should be in a separate book. There are chapters where the narrative switches from third to first person midway or vice versa, and in those chapters it feels like you are driving on a smooth cement highway but then all of a sudden the road becomes a dirt road riddled with potholes.
Picking up my copy today, I expect. Will report in afterward.
I've noticed that practice with the covers of Wired Magazine in recent years. Mildly annoying. If there's a product-longevity or cost-control issue requiring it, I suppose I can live with it, though.
It’s interesting, but while (so far) no specific New Frontier characters have appeared, a member of the Thallonian species has appeared, the same species that Si Cwan is from.
Have to wait until Tuesday....
They pop up outside of New Frontier from time to time. There was a Thallonian in the DS9 Relaunch, and I think we've seen a few others in other places too.
Naomi Wildman also appears in this book. So for the Star Trek Voyager Relaunch books, this means that at some point between 2382 and January 2387 Naomi completes her Starfleet Academy training and becomes a Lieutenant.
