Valhalla delayed

The review for Valhalla (DS9 #10) will go up next week. I had to take a leave from work to do more virtual schooling, and while I had enough lead time to cobble together a review of Secret of the Lizard People, I haven’t had a chance to write anything about Valhalla (though I have read it). Work, as long-time readers may know, is my writing environment. I get too distracted anywhere else to do effective work. But I’ll be back there next week, so I don’t see why it wouldn’t be up on the 27th.

#157: Secret of the Lizard People (TNG-YA #7)

This week, Data can’t wait to enjoy a rare celestial event with his new man-crush. But when a detour for a distress signal proves deadly, the adults are all too willing to use the cadets as meat shields. Do the lizard people actually have a secret? Is Data a good judge of character? Is it time to start seriously taking the artwork in these books to task? All this and more in Secret of the Lizard People, the book that might be socking it to the Mets.

#156: Warped (DS9 event)

This week, when a rash of murders sweeps the station, the cause is traced to a new kind of holosuite experience. But when the con man offering the radical new thrills takes a government job, a few murders are small potatoes compared to what he’s got planned. Can Sisko become one with the Matrix? Is this book aware of hardcover expectations? And what’s wrong with simple language? All this and more in Warped, the book that’s all talk.

#155: Blaze of Glory (TNG #34)

This week, when an old friend asks for help dealing with a space pirate, Picard suspects his crew might be overqualified for the job. But when the political situation in the system turns out to be pretty sticky, it becomes less clear who’s an enemy and who’s an ally. What’s the point of normie Vulcans? What’s the robot chick’s deal? And is this the Black Fire sequel we never knew we wanted? All this and more in Blaze of Glory, the book that tests the limits of what’s in a name.

#154: Recovery (TOS #73)

I can’t believe we’ve made it this far already. It seems like only yesterday we were kicking off with The Motion Picture, and now we’re getting ready to dive into the sixth Star Trek television series. Sixth! That’s absolutely bananas. I can’t wait to dive headfirst into the adventures of Burnham, Tilly, Saru, silver-fox daddy Pike, and all the—

Wait, what? We’re not on Discovery? What are we on? …Oh, Recovery? Oh. My bad.
