All this and more in Firestorm, the final book in the “Star Trek Novels I Owned As a Kid” collection!

Are the Romulans sitting on some primo blindness-curing tech? And who honestly thinks the South will rise again? All this and more in The Great Starship Race, the book that’s part of a complete down-home breakfast.
This week, while looking for artifacts in the Careta system, the Enterprise finds a door someone clearly wanted kept shut. But when Kirk and a few others pass through, they find themselves transformed into the evil alien crabs that built it. Now Kirk must either be a hero in a half-shell or lose his own consciousness to the powerfully xenophobic racial memory of his host. Will lady Yoda learn a lesson in humility? Are baggy pants still a sign of societal decay in the 23rd century? And why can’t anyone spell “y’all” correctly anymore? All this and more in Windows on a Lost World, the book that paints with all the colors of the wind.
