    Thanks! I haven't seen a lot of reviews of that story, so I'm glad to hear you liked it. I had fun writing that.

    And have I mentioned that I have a story in a new PLANET OF THE APES anthology coming out next year? :)

    We can expand to other tie-ins.
    I've read quite a few non-Trek tie-ins by Trek writers:
    Wolverine: Road of Bones by David Mack
    X-Men: Watchers on the Wall by Christopher L. Bennett
    Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 movie novelizations by Peter David
    Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Blackout and The Deathless by KRAD
    Supernatural: Nevermore and Bone Key by KRAD
    The 4400: Welcome to Promise City by Greg Cox and Promises Broken by David Mack
    Warehouse 13: A Touch of Fever by Greg Cox
    Godzilla, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel movie novelizations by Greg Cox
    I also playing on reading Greg Cox's The Librarians book.

    If we're including tie ins, then my list might be too long as I've read quite a few.
    Special mentions go to Greg Cox's Blood Enemy (Underworld) . I thought that was very good. (So were the others).
    I've also enjoyed James Swallow's 40k work

    If we're going to other tie-ins, then I have to say that the Ravenloft novels "Vampire of the Mists" and "Dance of the Dead" by Christie Golden are maybe the best I've read of the entire Ravenloft tie-in line.

    Oh, they are head and shoulders above the rest. Totally agree.

    Thank you! I'm working on the first book, A Furnace Sealed. Hoping to have it finished by year's end, and it should be out some time in 2017.

    And thank you again. :) I'm quite proud of "Back in El Paso My Life Will Be Worthless." It even got a nomination for a Scribe Award! (Though it did not win....)

    Just to celebrate, I delivered THE LIBRARIANS AND THE MOTHER GOOSE CHASE to Tor yesterday . . . .

    Next on my slate: finish editing the third DEADLANDS novel (based on the role-playing game), which I'm really enjoying so far.

    Speaking of non-Trek books by Trek authors . .. Dayton Ward's new "24" novel, Trial by Fire, came out today.

    Cool.
    Titan Books is starting releasing tie-ins for Arrow and The Flash, and NCIS: LA. Is there a chance of any of our resident writers writing books for those series?

    I believe that our fellow Trek author, Jeff Mariotte, has already written one of the NCIS: LA novels.

    Jeff has also written the second Deadlands novel, THUNDER MOON RISING, which comes out this very month. (I got an advance copy yesterday.)

    Oh, I didn't realize Jeff Mariotte wrote one of those.

    Jonathan Maberry wrote the first DEADLANDS novel. Jeff Mariotte wrote the second. Seanan McGuire recently delivered the third . . ..

    Sorry, I meant the NCIS:LA novels, I should have been more specific.
    That is quite a line up you got for the Deadlands books, though.

    I realized after replying that you might have meant the NCIS books instead, but . . . thanks!

    Mariotte's NCIS: LA novel Bolthole will be released at the end of November:

    https://www.amazon.com/NCIS-Los-Angeles-Jeff-Mariotte/dp/178329633X

    There will also be at least one NCIS: New Orleans novel in March 2017 apparently, though no author or further details are listed yet.

    Sounds like fun. And covers by Alex Ross, among others!

    If we're talking about other tie-ins too, I just had a new Deus Ex novel released - Black Light, tying in to the new Mankind Divided videogame.

    And Trek lit alums Christie Golden, John Jackson Miller and me all have stories in the Halo: Fractures anthology out later this month...

    I'm saving Black Light for while I'm on vacation - though I've also got Fear to Tread to read (also by James Swallow) as well.
