The Pocket Gang at San Diego Comic-Con


Beginning in September, Pocket will be releasing an all-new mass-market STAR TREK paperback trilogy called STAR TREK: CRUCIBLE. It's written by David R. George III, and I did the cover art as a triptych so that all three covers connect to form one picture (see above). The trilogy is part of Pocket's 40th Anniversary celebration of the original STAR TREK series, and it was a real pleasure to be a part of this.

I had a blast hanging out with the Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books gang at San Diego Comic-Con. Pictured below are (left to right) Elisa Kassan, Margaret Clark, Marco Palmieri, and Ed Schlesinger. Not pictured is the one-and-only Jennifer Heddle.

The hard-working Pocket gang handed out promo materials galore for the STAR TREK books all weekend long, and their Comic-Con booth was buzzing non-stop. I'll be posting more upcoming covers that I'm doing with this company, in the near future.

Glad you like it, Therin. Thanks very much. I think the McCoy novel (PROVENANCE OF SHADOWS) comes out in September, then the Spock comes out in December, followed by the Kirk book in February.
