Peter David, anything he writes Trek wise is above anything we have seen.

Agreed. Q-In-Law and Q-Squared are two of my favourite TNG novels. The man just gets Q. Even David's lesser novels (*cough* Before Dishonour *cough*) are enterainingly nuts.

Pity I can't recall the names.
The second one sounds like "Chain of Attack"

My favorites:

My Enemy, My Ally

Final Frontier

Covenant of the Crown

The Movie Novelizations by Vonda McIntyre are also top notch.

Fiction: "The Galactic Whirlpool" by David Gerrold... one of the earliest, and still one of the best.

Non-Fiction: "Star Trek Sketchbook" and "The Art of Star Trek" Production designs... my bread and butter, and I still love the early designs, before the "look" we are all familliar with got settled upon...

I have to say Crossroad was pretty good -- a very chilling look at 26th Century Starfleet.
