I haven't read a Star Trek book since the nineties, so all of my recommendations are from then. I liked Diane Duane, Peter David and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens books.

Actually, I have about 200 paperbacks that need a new home. They're in good condition and I don't want anything for them, just postage.

It's been a while, but I liked his humour.

I've always liked Diane Duane's books. Spock's World and the Rihannsu series are the best stories about Vulcans and Romulans I've read.

Diane Carey was a great Star Trek author.

How do new books and authors compare to the older, more classic books?

I don't know about anyone else, but I haven't read one published after about 1995, I think, so I couldn't say. Also, my Star Trek reading has always been limited to TOS books. I could never get into the TNG or later series of books.

Dark Mirror and Vendetta are pretty good Next Gen novels.

Both are sequels of sorts to classics trek episodes .:)

I used to have a lot of Star Trek novels, mainly TOS. Although they were numbered I put had them on my bookshelf in chronological order, usually somewhere on the book it would say this story takes place before X or after Y and I would file them accordingly. Was this a step too far?

There are a whole lot more that I could list as well, but these were some of my favorites. I mostly read TOS books as I found the characters just translated over to print better than in the other series, but there were a few books from the other series that I liked.

It has been a few years since I read one but my favourite was a Next Generation book:
Q-in-Law by Peter David and others.

It was really funny.
