Four of the Star Trek novels released by Simon & Schuster in 2013 -- namely The Next Generation: Cold Equations: The Body Electric, and The Fall installments The Crimson Shadow, A Ceremony of Losses and The Poisoned Chalice -- reached the New York Times Bestseller List. And the future looks just as bright for fans of Star Trek novels, as Simon & Schuster has a full slate of Trek adventures lined up for 2014. The slate will run the gamut from The Original Series to Voyager to exciting crossovers. Here’s a look at things to come:
March: The epic Original Series/Voyager crossover NO TIME LIKE THE PAST by Greg Cox with Captain James T. Kirk meeting Seven of Nine.
April: Simon and Schuster will unveil Christopher L. Bennett’s continuing ENTERPRISE saga RISE OF THE FEDERATION: TOWER OF BABEL, as well as Michael A. Martin’s Original Series eNovella SEASONS OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS.
May: James Kirk returns to the planet Neural (as seen in the episode “A Private Little War”) in the Original Series novel SERPENTS IN THE GARDEN by Jeff Mariotte.
