Trekommendations?

Yes. Horrible title. Bad blogger. No donut.

Still.

As much as I enjoy Trek, I’ve never really explored the literary Trek work terribly much over the years. As it stands, my entire Trek book collection spans [all of twenty volumes][1], only a few of which are novels.

So — any recommendations from others out there who might have explored more of the printed Trek universe? I’m always up for more additions to my “to read” stack….

  1. Well, keep in mind that I haven’t read most of them in a looong time … and I’ve only ever read TOS stuff, no other print Trek.

    Scanning through the Star Trek Book List, I remember these being good:

    Very old:

    Strangers From the Sky · Margaret Wander Bonanno

    The main TOS series:

    • #11 · Yesterday’s Son · A.C. Crispin
    • #15 · Corona · Greg Bear
    • #23 · Ishmael · Barbara Hambly
    • #27 · Mindshadow · J.M. Dillard
    • #39 · Time For Yesterday · A.C. Crispin

    … and I suspect that anything else written by these authors would also be pretty good.

    If I do a little more digging I could probably be more specific. I remember a couple of plots that I don’t think are any of the above but that would take a little while to dredge up.
