Again, this is tentative and subject to all kindsa changes. In particular from spring 2007 on is rife with possible alterations. This is just an idea of what's coming.

Some comments...

Many Splendors is a month late, due to the author being a deadbeat. *sigh*

Crucible Books 2-3 have been delayed, and it was decided to just have no mass-market books in October and November and two each in December and January rather than shuffle the schedule too much.

Both Constellations and The Sky's the Limit will be anniversary anthologies, in the same vein as Prophecy and Change and Distant Shores.

Aftermath in November and Grand Designs next July are the next two S.C.E. collections, which will take us, between the two of them, to eBook #42 in print form. It's possible there'll be another print compilation in 2007; it's also possible there won't. Either way, the next one after Grand Designs will be called Creative Couplings, and include #43-49.

The reissues of Strangers from the Sky, Vulcan's Glory, Federation, and The Entropy Effect are part of the 40th anniversary celebration. Each reissue will have new cover artwork.

Bloodwing Voyages is an omnibus of My Enemy, My Ally; The Romulan Way, Swordhunt, and Honor Blade, being released alongside the fifth Rihannsu book, The Empty Chair.

Some of the individual Mirror Universe titles have been revealed as well. Anybody reading this knows that my VOY novel is called The Mirror-Scaled Serpent. Dave Mack's TOS novel will be called The Sorrows of Empire, and the Sussman/Ward/Dilmore ENT novel will be called Age of the Empress: The Reign of Sato I.

The Good that Men Do will tie into "These Are the Voyages..." and establish the post-finale direction for Enterprise fiction (hints of which were dropped in the prologue and epilogue of the same authors' Last Full Measure).

Fearful Symmetry will be a flip book in the style of the old Ace Doubles, with two parallel narratives, each moving toward the middle of the book.

Twist of Faith is an omnibus that will include the first five post-finale DS9 tales from 2001: Avatar Books 1-2, Section 31: Abyss, Gateways: Demons of Air and Darkness, and Horn and Ivory from Gateways: What Lay Beyond.

The Buried Age will be a Lost Era book that chronicles Jean-Luc Picard's life between the loss of the Stargazer and the launch of the Enterprise-D.

Remembrance of Things Past will be a TNG crossover.

Death in Winter, Resistance, Q&A, and Peter David's novel (which has the working title of Excessum Rector) will all continue the TNG story going forward after Nemesis.

I hope to be able to announce the May-July Corps of Engineers eBooks and the TNG anniversary miniseries soon.

Well, to be fair, it's just a reprint of the two-part eBook they did a couple years ago..... *grin*

Feel better soon!

Thanks!

Hope you're feeling better!

Thanks for the list - looks like a lot of great stuff. I do hope, as you mentioned, that there are some additions, as I'd hate to wait until July 2007 for a new Titan book! :)

Okay, well, you're SOL there. *wry grin* Sword of Damocles is the next Titan book, and you do indeed have to wait until July for it. Sorry!

*laughing*
Ah well. There are some good books coming out by this Keith something-something guy that I like to read, I'll get those instead!

Thanks for posting this. I wish there were more DS9 coming up in the near future, but I guess you can't have everything.

Do you know if there are plans afoot to do a paper version of Mere Anarchy?
kradical From: kradical Date: July 15th, 2006 08:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Long term, yes, but don't expect to see it any time soon. If you want to read this story, you should really get the eBooks.

Lotsa good stuff for me to buy. I better put Bookaholics Anonymous on speed dial. And find the charger for my old Handspring so I can start downloading ebooks, unless the OS is just incompatable with the new Adobe reader. *sigh* I love technology, but can never keep up with it. I'm a bad engineer.

Bad engineer! No biscuit!

Dunno about the OS, since I'm no kind of engineer. I just edit the things, I don't explain 'em. *wry grin*
