As they are wont to do on occasion, the good folks over at StarTrek.com once again have turned their attention to the latest happenings in the realm of Star Trek fiction. This time, they offer up a juicy tease about The Fall, the upcoming five-book mini-series which will be published one book per month from September through January 2014. Leading off the series is friend and veteran author David R. George III, who gives us the next chapter in the ongoing Deep Space Nine saga with his novel, Revelation and Dust.
StarTrek.com’s look at the first book also includes a new interview with David, in which he discusses his own story as well as the entire series, our collaborative efforts, and other tasty tidbits. Have a read, whydontcha:
Similar articles and interviews will be coming for the other authors and books, so stay tuned for updates on that front. For now, here again is the lineup for the series’ books and authors:
Revelation and Dust by David R. George III, “starring” members of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine cast (September)
The Crimson Shadow by Una McCormack, focusing on Picard and Garak (October)
A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack (November)
The Poisoned Chalice by James Swallow, focusing on Riker and the crew of the U.S.S. Titan (December)
Peaceable Kingdoms, by me, “starring” Picard and the Enterprise-E (January 2014)
As for my own entry in the series, I’m closing in on the delivery date for my manuscript. It’s been a harder road than normal for me this time around, owing to my getting started late after wrapping up work on From History’s Shadow. As for this project, there’s also the need to keep in synch with everyone else while at the same time not having a wealth of time to devote to such activities while I’m trying to keep pace with my own writing in and around everything else. However, if there’s one thing that can get a writer to bring their A-Game to a project like this, it’s trying to keep up with the other authors on this series. Here’s hoping I hold up my end of the deal!
