It’s been a while since I last polluted the aether over at StarTrek.com, but the good people there have decided the time was right to let me have the run of the place for a bit. With that in mind, they gave me license to offer up yet another installment of my irregularly recurring blog series for them, “Ten for Ward.”
For those who haven’t yet sampled the so-called “column,” I’m periodically invited to provide a list of ten favorite (and hopefully interesting) Trek-related whatevers based on…well…whatever I can think up whenever my editor asks me for a new column.
For this latest entry, I solicited the help of regular readers of this here blog-thing, asking them to offer suggestions as to what Star Trek novel might make a good entry point for the Trek fan who hadn’t yet seen fit to sample the books. I received several good suggestions, and mixed in a few of my own to round out the list I eventually wrote for the article.
The result? That would be this right here:
If we didn’t mention a title you think makes for a fine introduction to Star Trek novels for the first-time reader, feel free to offer it and your reasons in the comments section at the bottom of the article. The more, the merrier!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to offer up suggestions, and thanks as always to my editor and other good people at StarTrek.com who let me play in their sandbox every so often. You can check out all of the “Ten for Ward” columns just clicking on this rather swank-looking logo-type thing:
So, who’s got more to add to the list?
