85: Jurassic Park of the Billionth Century

Department of Temporal Investigations: The Collectors.

The first time we met agents Lucsly and Dulmer in Trials and Tribble-ations no one expected them to star in their own novel series, yet that's exactly what Christopher L. Bennett did. He took these dull, funny men and created some of Treklit's most memorable adventures in Watching The Clock and Forgotten History.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the latest book in the DTI series, The Collectors. We discuss Dan's thoughts on the first two books, how DTI could work as ebooks moving forward, the themes of change and letting go as well as timelines we'd love to see explored.

In the news section, we remind everyone about the Q Gambit's penultimate issue release, Una McCormack's upcoming DS9 book The Missing and lastly wish everyone a Happy Holiday's.

84: The Maroon Jacket Era

Greg Cox: Foul Deeds Will Rise

The last time Lenore Karidian was seen, Dr. McCoy was promising that she would receive the best medical care the Federation could provide. This makes her the last person that Captain Kirk would think he'd run into, 20 years later on a peace keeping mission. Yet he does and she again becomes embroiled in a murder investigation aboard the Enterprise.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by author Greg Cox to talk about his latest book Foul Deeds Will Rise. We find out the genesis behind the story, the difference of writing in the movie era, how crafting Star Trek murder mysteries is different from normal mysteries, some of the important themes that run though the book and Greg's upcoming projects.

In the news segment we talk to our new host Dan and ask him for some of his favorite Star Trek books, then remind everyone that The Collectors by Christopher L. Bennett is out and discuss the new blurb for the upcoming ebook, Shadows of the Machine.
