Default Who is your favourite Pocket books author

I was going to do a poll but there are so many and I didn't want to offend by missing a really well known author out by mistake.

My favourite author has to be Christie Golden. She writes books that I can't put down. Reading ST Voyager: Marooned just now and it's great.

Currently, David Mack is doing the best work IMO. Really looking forward to his upcoming Mirror Universe novel.

I do like the novels by the Reeves-Stevens team. Also love Peter David's novels.

They are very good! Too bad they don't really write any Trek these days.

I agree, that does suck. They even made Shatner's Star Trek novels bearable.

I liked the older Shatner novels, but his most recent outing (Collision Course) is a boring and totally out of character book.

Sounds like typical Shat, if you ask me.

Haha. Yeah.

He complained how CBS had to make sure that people knew that his novel was not the true story of how Kirk & Spock met, since the movie was yet to be released at that point. It's less of a canon thing and more that the novel just sucked I think.

I haven't forgiven Peter David for making Janeway the Borg Queen then killing her off

I couldn't agree more.

I never take anything I read in a ST novel too seriously, especially David's novels, since his get quite, and wonderfully, fanciful.
