Even though I have a backlog of audiobooks I'm working through and a 40+ page wishlist on Audible, enough will never be enough. I am geeking out big time this afternoon about my latest pre-orders. I went a little nuts. On May 30, we've got a triple dose of awesome from the late, great Carl … Continue reading Audible Pre-Orders
This review will serve as an assessment of this book and of the trilogy it completes. I provided the basic setup for this story in my review for the first book, and I did my best to keep it as spoiler free as possible for both of the previous books. This being a newer novel, I'll continue … Continue reading Star Trek: Prey, Book 3: The Hall of Heroes by John Jackson Miller

From the transcript of that episode: … Continue reading The Face of the Unknown: Star Trek: The Original Series by Christopher L. Bennett
I have way too many books going right now, with more lined up immediately after. It's a bit overwhelming to consider, but it also seems like a good problem to have. I tend to forget I have a Kindle, as my primary methods of book consumption are via Audible or good old fashioned paper copies. … Continue reading Current Reading List
Once more, this time without the incompetent narrator who clearly doesn't know Trek. I love that they got delivered today of all days. Perfect timing.
Back in the mid-90s when this title was released in paperback, it was the first time the general public had ever gotten to read the original versions of episode often hailed as "the absolute best Star Trek episode ever written." A third of the book was Harlan Ellison's epic rant "setting the record straight," followed by … Continue reading The City on the Edge of Forever by Harlan Ellison
