Ring in The New Year with a New Destiny

Earlier this year, the powers that be at Simon & Schuster released a new-and-improved omnibus edition of my Star Trek Destiny trilogy. This new edition, in addition to having all three volumes between one set of covers, included a number of small edits and revisions I had made to the original text. While there weren’t any major changes to the story or dialogue, I made many tweaks that I felt improved the flow of the prose.

A number of readers who prefer eBooks have asked me in recent months why there was no electronic version of the book released at the same time as the print omnibus. I don’t have an answer for that question, but I do have good news for those who asked it:

The revised, omnibus edition of Star Trek Destiny will be available for multiple e-reader platforms starting next month, at the very reasonable price of just $11.99 — half what one would have paid for the original paperback edition of the trilogy, and significantly lower than the cover price of the trade paperback omnibus.

Adding to my delight at this news is the fact that this eBook will be the first of my titles to include my new bragging-rights cover credit, “New York Times Bestselling Author.”

So if you’ve been waiting for the deal of a lifetime to pick up the Destiny trilogy, here it is. Enjoy!

My Destiny is inescapable…

For those of you who missed all the hype and hoopla about my Star Trek Destiny trilogy when it was first published more than three years ago, its recent republication in a new-and-improved omnibus edition brings you a new chance to find out how it came to be, and what it’s all about.

Freelance writer Linda Whitmore interviewed me for Hero Complex, the L.A. Times blog “for your inner fanboy.” The Q&A piece, titled “‘Star Trek Destiny’ author David Mack’s Borg epic comes full cube”,  is a very thorough look into the genesis of the project, its development, and what makes it tick.

If you have a few minutes and even a smidgen of curiosity, I encourage you to give it a read.

Two Destinies…

While I was away in Florida last week, UPS delivered three boxes via my neighbor. I hadn’t been expecting any deliveries, so this caught me by surprise.

The first box, from my friend Dayton Ward, contained three sets of signed copies of the Star Trek Vanguard novels he co-authored with Kevin Dilmore, and one unsigned set, for donation to a library, as soon as the saga’s final volume, Storming Heaven, comes out in April.

The other two boxes contained my 25 author copies of the omnibus edition of Star Trek Destiny — the complete trilogy in one massive volume. Here it is, beside the original paperback version of the trilogy’s second book, Mere Mortals:

If you often find yourself in need of something large and heavy to drop on spiders or prop open doors, this is the tome for you.

All kidding aside, I did a fair bit of fine-tuning on these three books during the editing and production phase on this new edition, and I consider this new trade paperback omnibus to be the definitive edition of the trilogy. If you haven’t yet read the trilogy, or want to gift it to someone, this is the version I most recommend.
