Essential Star Trek Novels Reading Club for 50th Anniversary!


In honor of one of my favorite franchises, I’d like to announce the Essential Star Trek Novels Reading Club Fall 2016-Spring 2017 which I’m launching in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek.

The selections for this book club reading list are based on the io9 article “Essential Star Trek Novels That Even Non-Trekkers Should Read“.  Since I’d not read most of them despite being an avid Trekkie, I decided this was a challenge I should accept.  Who will join me on this accursed mission?  The meetings will take place online via Google Hangouts, so respond with your user name :).

Some of these titles will be available as either print and/or ebooks from your local library, but not all of them.  Plan time to stalk Half Price Books and other used bookstores for copies of some of these titles.
