Author William Leisner concludes this year's TOS/5YM marathon with his second Star Trek novel, The Shocks of Adversity. He's no stranger to the TOS characters however, most recently having taken them on an adventure in Ambition, his entry in the Constellations short story collection to commemorate the franchise's 40th anniversary. In the meantime, this novel's release date on May 28th falls neatly into the month of his 14th anniversary as a published Trek scribe. Congrats! This one's got an unusually long official blurb: Unfortunately neither Simon & Schuster nor Amazon currently offer a peek at the text.
