Sorry I’ve been lax on the blog front lately; I’ve been trying to make my deadline on the Star Trek: The Next Generation — Cold Equations trilogy. Someday soon I hope to have cover art to share … but today is not that day.

I’ve come slouching out of the shadows this evening to share these excerpts from a new review of Star Trek Vanguard: Storming Heaven by John Keegan on Critical Myth-Interpretations

“[Storming Heaven] unspools at a blistering pace … This was dark, gritty Trek at its best.”

“The pace is relentless. … The result is a book that you don’t want to put down, because there’s no telling what might come next. Even the climax of the series, in the final third of the book, seems to escalate at frightening speed.”

“For those who may have been sitting on the fence, waiting to see if it would have a good enough ending to justify giving the series a shot, rest assured: this is one Star Trek saga that does not disappoint.”

John also shared his review over on GoodReads, where he gave Storming Heaven 5/5 stars. Thanks, John!

Hiya, Trek fans! Just a quick update. My friends at TrekRadio.net have informed me that as of today, last Monday’s special Internet radio presentation, The Music of Star Trek Vanguard, is now available for streaming playback via a special On Demand page at their website.

If you missed the original netcast, I strongly encourage you to give this show a listen when you have time. (Caveat: It’s three hours long. Fortunately, it can be paused and resumed with ease.)

In other Trek-related news, I had a great weekend in Kansas City with fellow scribes Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore (as well as Scott Pearson, Robert Greenberger, David R. George III, and William Leisner), and brilliant schemes are in the works. Now we just need to persuade our publisher to go along with our crazy plans. More on this as it develops…

At long last, the promised Star Trek Vanguard Authors’ Roundtable Podcast is live and available for download and streaming playback thanks to John S. Drew and Keith R.A. DeCandido at The Chronic Rift.

This roughly hour-long discussion brings together the Vanguard series’ original editor, Marco Palmieri, myself, and fellow authors and creative partners Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. We answer questions submitted by fans, covering everything from the saga’s inception to its finale.

We also announce the winners of the Star Trek Vanguard autographed book sets — congratulations to Johnny Blues and Nick Fisher — as well as the special-prize recipient, Rick Mackey, who receives a limited-edition lenticular poster of the cover art from the series’ first novel, Harbinger.

Another special treat is my April 17, 2012, 90-minute audio interview with Timewarp and Nydra at TrekRadio.net, and which is now available via the Trek Radio On Demand page. We discussed not only Star Trek Vanguard but also my recent Mirror Universe novel Rise Like Lions, my upcoming trilogy Cold Equations, and the writing life in general.

PLUS! COMING UP ON MONDAY, APRIL 23 from 3PM–5PM, I will be back on Trek Radio with a very special presentation: The Music of Star Trek Vanguard. I will be sharing not only commentary but also complete musical tracks that were either mentioned in the text of the novels or that inspired specific events, characters, and the master arc of the series itself. This promises to be a unique glimpse into both my creative process and the backstory of the saga.
