I picked up a couple of Spock books on Amazon recently, but have still to read them. If I can find it cheaply enough I might give it a once over.

oops, I voted before I realized this was about the novel instead of the TOS episode with Cochrane. I've never read the book. I do enjoy the FC version of Cochrane though. He's eccentric in a fun way.

I personally like "Black Fire" was an old TOS/TMP set novel where Spock has to become a pirate.

For a TMP set novel (and an early 80's Trek Novel), it's suprisingly good.

I used to love how every novel featured the blurb 'greatest danger yet', 'greatest enemy yet', etc

All very melodramatic in their own way!

Agreed, the whole "Timescape" AKA Pocket books line of that era was the same way, but they alwasy had great art on the covers, and usually good stories inside.

Some of the cover art was really well done, very true.

Some by noted artists. That one is an uncredited Boris.

the 80s weren't all bad.

Modern cover art really kinda lacks that style now.
