Who handles the musical arrangements?
Neither, though I have it on good authority that Kevin Dilmore can fart the guitar solo from "The Spirit of Radio."
Geddy and Alex.
I PM'ed Rosalind about it a couple of days back, but I guess she's out of town or so.
On second thought now you have me interrested...
Gives a new meaning to "Invisible Airwaves Crackle With Life"
My book has "magically" appeared. Time to start on it this weekend.
A question for Dayton:
In your Acknowledgements, you thank "Michael Richards" for providing the original story for That Which Survives. "Michael Richards" is, I believe, a pseudonym for D.C. Fontana. I'm kind of surprised you didn't unmask "Michael's" true identity in your acknowledgements. Why not?
Liked. Nice revisiting of themes and civilizations and characters from TOS and an examination of first contact with the locals. A solid 8.
I thought it was pretty pedestrian. I didn't really get a feel of much tension even in the parts that felt like they should have been. There wasn't anything else in particular to dislike, but equally it's not something I'd read a second time.
I just got started. just all right so far.
I love the books that are set in the original 5 year mission.
Liked it, thought it was good.
Finished it the other day, and have posted my review of it. Not bad, but nothing really "grabbed" me as being stellar or excellent. Solid, a good read, but not exceptional.
Just starting chapter 14, like it so far.
Still at it , on chapter 23.
I looked up Lt.Boma in Memory Alpha to help put a face to the name, and I noticed he has apperaed in two previous non-canon books(Dreadnought and Battlestations). Does his posting to the Huang Zhong jive with those two previous books? They have him listed as a civilian scientist not a Stafleet Lieutenant.
He was a lieutenant in the episode "The Galileo Seven"; Carey's books postulate that he left Starfleet afterwards.
I haven't read That Which Divides, so I can't speak to how well it gels with Carey's accounts. My guess is "not very well", though.
I don't think they jibe at all. (Jive = nonsense or deceptive talk; jibe = agree or be in accord; gibe = mock or deride.) Dreadnought and Battlestations fit into the old '80s version of Trek novel continuity, which is very different from what the later shows and books have established.
