singular destiny

Trek stuff

As many of you probably know, a bunch of new Star Trek prose projects were announced at Shore Leave 30 this past weekend. Full news stories can be found at Trek Today, TrekWeb, and TrekMovie.com.

I alredy posted the covers to A Singular Destiny and Mere Anarchy. Here's what else of mine was announced:

There will be another Corps of Engineers compilation next year, Out of the Cocoon, which will be published in December 2009, and which will include four eBooks (the title story by William Leisner bill_leisner, Honor by Kevin Killiany kvaadk, Blackout by Phaedra M. Weldon meharet, and The Cleanup by Robert T. Jeschonek bob_j) and a new minipedia compiled by me. (The current plan is to try to do two trades per year that collect eBooks. We'll get Mere Anarchy and Out of the Cocoon in 2009. Still to come are Slings and Arrows and the final three COE volumes, What's Past, Turn the Page, and Remembrance of Things Past.)

In August 2009, there will be an anthology called Seven Deadly Sins. This will feature seven novellas picking an alien species (or, in one case, an alternate universe) that represents one of each of the seven deadly sins.

Big surprise -- I'm doing the Klingons, who represent wrath. Can't say much about the story just yet, but I can say it'll be my first time writing 23rd-century Klingons, which I'm looking forward to.

Here's the whole lineup:

Pride: the Romulans, by Dayton Ward daytonward & Kevin Dilmore
Envy: the Cardassians, by James Swallow jmswallow
Wrath: the Klingons, by Keith R.A. DeCandido kradical
Sloth: the Pakleds, by Jimmy Diggs
Greed: the Ferengi, by David A. McIntee lonemagpie
Gluttony: the Borg, by Marc Giller
Lust: the Mirror Universe, by Britta Dennison

odd sight of the day

I'm sitting in the Starbucks, and a kid who can't possibly be more than eight years old rides by on his bike--

--wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, HERE'S THE SEX PISTOLS.

There may be hope for the next generation yet.....
