Best Defense is a #1 Bestseller! (#SFWApro)

Legacies_BestDefense_FullI’m pleased as punch to report that my latest novel, Star Trek Legacies, Book 2: Best Defense, has debuted at #1 on Locus Magazine’s list of media-related bestsellers for November 2016!

Backing it up at #3 on the November list is its predecessor in the trilogy, Star Trek Legacies, Book 1: Captain to Captain by Greg Cox. Captain to Captain debuted on the list in October 2016, also at #1.

Here’s hoping that next month the trilogy’s final volume, Star Trek Legacies, Book 3: Purgatory’s Key, by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, will follow in our footsteps.

For those keeping score at home, this marks my work’s twenty-third appearance on the Locus Magazine bestseller list, and my sixth #1 bestseller. Not too shabby.


DISAVOWED is a LOCUS #1 Bestseller (#SFWApro)

Today I happened to take a gander at the monthly bestseller lists over at Locus Magazine, and I was pleased to discover that my novel Section 31: Disavowed earned the top spot on the February 2015 list of Media-Related books.


This is my fourth novel to land at #1 on the Locus Magazine bestseller list, with the previous titles being Star Trek Destiny, Book I: Gods of Night, Star Trek: The Fall, Book III: A Ceremony of Losses, and A Time to Heal. It also marks my twentieth appearance on that list overall since December 2004.

My thanks to everyone who pre-ordered this book or bought it during its first week of publication. Here’s hoping my next Star Trek: Seekers novel Long Shot and my Jack Bauer thriller 24: Rogue do as well later this year.



Cold Equations on the Locus list

Just noticed that the Locus Magazine list of bestsellers for February 2013 has just been posted, and that two spots in the “Media-Related Fiction” segment are occupied by volumes from my Star Trek: The Next Generation trilogy Cold Equations.

Book II, Silent Weapons, has snagged the No. 2 spot on this month’s list, while my first New York Times bestseller, Book I: The Persistence of Memory, currently holds the No. 3 spot.

Not too shabby, my friends! Here’s hoping that The Body Electric gets to join them on next month’s list.

My book made the New York Times list!

After more than a decade of writing published novels, it can be easy to become jaded, to wonder sometimes whether I’m banging my head against the wall for no reason, whether anyone even notices when I have a new book out. And then there are awesome days like today.

I’ve just received word from my editor at Simon & Schuster that my latest novel, Star Trek: The Next Generation — Cold Equations, Book I: The Persistence of Memory, has debuted at #30 on the November 18, 2012, New York Times extended bestseller list for mass-market paperback fiction!

Henceforth, I can officially be described as “New York Times bestselling author David Mack.” Maybe now I’ll even get to sit at the cool kids’ table and get invited to the cool parties!

In a word: W00t!



Rise Like Lions — someone’s buying it…

I am pleased to learn that my most recently published novel, Star Trek Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions, has landed at #4 on the Locus Magazine bestseller list for media-related fiction.

Not too shabby. <grin>

Here’s hoping my next new title to hit store shelves, Star Trek Vanguard: Storming Heaven, does as well as Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore’s last Vanguard outing, What Judgments Come, which was #1 on the Locus list last month.

More Good News, via Locus Magazine

More good news from the publishing trenches, my friends: All three books in the Star Trek Destiny trilogy have been Locus Magazine bestsellers in Media-related Fiction, in January, February, and March 2009.

Best of all, Gods of Night was Locus‘s #1 Bestseller in January!

So … ahem … I will now be referring to my recent work as “the bestselling Star Trek Destiny trilogy.”

Like y’all needed another reason to smack me and key my rental cars…
