Star Trek: Ghost-Walker (1991) – Barbara Hambly

Well, that’s three for three. The past few Trek novels have not wowed me, or even held my interest, though the Human Adventure definitely continues. This one shouldn’t have been such a surprise for me because I wasn’t a fan of her other Trek novel, Ishmael, and there’s still one more to come. We’ll see…

Star Trek: Demons (1986) – J.M. Dillard
