More love for Cold Equations…

The first two books of my Cold Equations trilogy — The Persistence of Memory and Silent Weapons — have been listed by Angela Schuch of on her Best Books of 2012 roundup, in the science-fiction category, alongside works by such august company as William C. Dietz, Orson Scott Card, Robert J. Sawyer, Timothy Zahn, John Scalzi, Rachel Caine, and fellow Star Trek authors Greg Cox and Dayton Ward. Awesome!

In related news, Dan Gunther of Trek Lit Reviews has posted the first official review I’ve seen for the trilogy’s third book, The Body Electric. Here’s a sample of his remarks:

“The epilogue … nearly had me in tears. David Mack is good at writing galaxy-changing events, but he is equally adept at tender character moments that really pack an emotional punch.”

The Body Electric [is] a satisfying conclusion to the Cold Equations trilogy. … [It’s] a highly compelling and well-told novel that had me guessing until the end.”

So, there you have it. Go forth ye Trek fans and purchase thee several copies at once!

    Greetingsd all:

    The title of this section is “More Love for Cold equations” and rightly so. However, I will go out on a limb to express the sad fact that this and all other works by David Mack are unavailable to all. I am a totally blind Star Trek fan and would like to be able to have access to these brilliant works in audio format. To do so, it is prudent to contact and make these available. It is shocking that even now in 2013, we still have these issues. I do not mean any disrespect upon this blog but it is reprehensible that people cannot obtain the writings of one as brilliant as Mack. Thank you for allowing me to make people aware of our needs.

    I’m sorry to hear that you have been unable to obtain copies of my work in a format that you find accessible. Are there Braille editions of the Star Trek books? I know you’d prefer an audiobook, but perhaps there are some alternatives you could turn to, just to get your Trek-fix.

    In any event, the next time I speak with my editors, I will ask why there aren’t more Star Trek audiobooks. Thanks for your interest, and for dropping by my blog.

    Best regards,
    David Mack
