ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
a nice review of A Good Day to Die
Back in 2001, my first Trek novel, Diplomatic Implausibility, was published. It featured Worf's first mission as an ambassador following the DS9 finale, and also showcased a Klingon ship, the I.K.S. Gorkon, captained by Klag, a guest character from a most excellent second-season TNG episode "A Matter of Honor." I also brought the ship and characters back in The Brave and the Bold duology in 2002.

In 2003, I was given the green light to do two books in a new series focused on the Klingon ship, the I.K.S. Gorkon series. It only lasted three books (the third came out in 2005), with an attempted rebranding in 2008.

Jim Arrowood's only recently discovered the adventures of Klag and the gang, and he just reviewed the first Gorkon book, A Good Day to Die, on his blog.

Money quote:
As I have mentioned in previous reviews of this author’s works, chief among Keith’s many strengths is his ability to bring characters alive and make them seem like real people. Although A Good Day To Die is obviously a work of fiction, it seems real as one reads mainly owing to the vivid character development.

I still have my hardcopy editions. Not regretting that.
