Just got word my book is in, going to pick it up in about an hour.

Needless to say looking forward to it.

Just finished reading mine.  Being careful to avoid spoilers, I just want to say I loved the back-up story.  I loved the era it was set in (and wouldn't mind seeing more of that, if possible), I loved the internal conflict that was being dealt with on the first page, and it was a damn fine resolution.

Only complaint: glossy paper and the constant need to shift the book during reading (if any publishers are reading this...).

Hmmm. I'd preordered the latest issue from Things From Another
World's website, but it's now listed as "backordered". May be awhile
before I get my copy, dagnabbit!

Another Jefferies-esque "set" in the works...

This time I actually have an idea of where it might be headed!

I hope that translates as "We didn't order enough, but next time we'll order more."

Just read a truly bizarre "review" of the Mudd issue. Among other curiously structured comments there was this:

"Neither tale fails to raise any interest whatsoever in the reader and it becomes nothing more than a chore as you plough into this story."

Say what, now?

Once again, evidence that all it takes to be an online "critic" is rudimentary typing skills.

It took me a few times to plow through that sentence to get what they were TRYING to say.

"... but it's now listed as "backordered"

...

My book shop told me the same thing, then called me two days later to say it was in.
Anyway, "A Secret of Ghosts" was a fun read . Sadly I was done with the story in a blink (no "ploughing" for me). Loved the very first page.
Thought I was going to see a brief meeting between a certain nurse and someone during the sickbay tour, but alas...
"Memorium" was touching and perfect.

Already did that in FRONTIER DOCTOR!

And, as you all know, I never, ever repeat
repeat myself!

Loved this issue. Any chance of another USS Yorktown adventure, be it comic or photomontage?

If you have not already, check out both CREW and FRONTIER DOCTOR for more aboard the Yorktown!

An observation about the modeling...

One of the things I have been saying about ST:NV is that I have a "bigger budget." By this, of course, I mean I am limited only by my imagination, with no need to consider what practical versions of various sets or models would cost. The image posted above is a good example of this. As I am imagining where I will use that "set," I am realizing it will be basically a single scene. The production staff on TOS could not have afforded such a large and elaborate set for such small use.

In some ways this series begins to feel as if I am working on a movie version of TOS, just ten years earlier.
