McIntyre on writing Star Trek tie-ins
February 18th, 2009 by Dunc · 5 Comments
Author Vonda McIntyre writes about her experience with Star Trek novels at Book View Cafe. It draws some interesting responses at Metafilter, including a lengthy one from John Scalzi.
McIntyre is not well-loved among Star Wars EU fans – her one book in this franchise, 1994′s The Crystal Star, is a regular on worst-of lists. (And let’s face it, we all overuse the Waru jokes.) But her post is certainly worth reading, and an interesting look at the early days of tie-in fiction.
