Hailing frequencies... well, you know the rest. My debut Star Trek novel is now on the stands: Star Trek: The Next Generation - Takedown!
Takedown, as I've mentioned before, is a fun romp of a novel, a true interstellar naval yarn in the Star Trek tradition. From the description:
When renegade starships begin wreaking destruction across the quadrant, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are shocked to discover that the mastermind behind this sudden threat is none other than Picard’s protégé and friend: Admiral William T. Riker. The newly minted admiral is on board the U.S.S. Aventine as part of a special assignment, even as the mystery deepens behind his involvement in the growing crisis.
But the Aventine is helmed by Captain Ezri Dax—someone who is no stranger to breaking Starfleet regulations—and her starship is by far the faster vessel…and Riker cannot yield, even to his former mentor. It’s a battle of tactical geniuses and a race against time as Picard struggles to find answers before the quadrant’s great powers violently retaliate against the Federation…
There's mystery and adventure — and it's written for both the newcomer to Star Trek fiction and to the seasoned veteran. You can find it at your local bookseller and at these outlets:
I have finally gotten online the production notes and trivia for Star Trek Titan: Absent Enemies online here, so you can check those out after you've read that. (You can obtain that novella here.)
Also, I missed the chance to make a post on it last week when it came out, but my Conan story has been reprinted in Robert E. Howard's Savage Sword Vol. 2 from Dark Horse. I'll add notes on that one to the site when time allows.
