I’ve been a bad blogger these past few days. Chalk it up to being busy with work, as well as a fast-approaching deadline for the current novel-in-progress, which is due to my editor next week.
Speaking of said novel — that being Peaceable Kingdoms, the fifth of the upcoming five-book mini-series coming from Pocket Books later this year, Star Trek: The Fall — StarTrek.com spent a bit of time and effort pimping the series over the holiday weekend. For those of you who might not yet have seen the results of this pimping, that’s what bad bloggers like me are for.
First, there was this piece, which focused on the series’ overall storyline (no spoilers!), with an emphasis on author David R. George III, who’s writing the first book, Revelation and Dust. I yammered a bit about that a bit, myself, back on May 25th: First look at Star Trek: The Fall, courtesy of StarTrek.com.
To augment that coverage, StarTrek.com took some time to talk to artists Andrew Probert and Douglas Graves, the good folks responsible for designing the look of the new Deep Space Nine space station. Both gentlemen have rather distinguished Trek resumes.
They also chatted with the one and only Doug Drexler, Emmy and Oscar-winning makeup and visual effects artist, who among his many notable accomplishments also found time to provide all of the cover art for the Star Trek: Vanguard novel series and also shepherds each edition of the yearly Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar. Mr. D is now providing cover art for each of the Fall books.
You can read both articles by setting course for StarTrek.com:
So, we’ve got a new station and some swank looking models and book covers. I guess we just need some books, now, eh?

Time for me to get back to work.
