Hi all, Ever since discussing artistry in ficton with Christopher the other week, I have been wondering about what Treklit would look like if written by authors who had never written it before, and indeed would be unlikely to do so. I ask, in part, because many of the Trek authors who have written over the past decade and done wonders stylistically and with genre tropes are people who perhaps would not have been imagined writing it in the 1990s (people such as David Mack, Una McCormack, etc). So I have to ask what writers you would like in a hypothetical world to write Trek lit? And why? If possible can you link to extracts of their works, or link to websites on them? Secretly I have been imagining a world where Gene Wolfe, Zadie Smith, Sebastian Faulks, Alastair Reynolds & Margaret Apwood had written Trek fiction: authors I cannot imagine ever doing so, and each arguably unique and brilliant 'voices', varyingly profound and powerful, who deconstruct various aspects of society and gender in excellent manners.
