Book Review: ‘Avatar’ by S.D. Perry

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Avatar, is a two part book series written by S.D. Perry and was released in May of 2001 by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster. Because of the relatively short nature of the books, and given the fact of how tied-together they are, I am writing my review of both parts jointly. 

After the Season 7 finale of DS9, the tv show is over, and Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster has the perfect opportunity to take the characters and the story and run wild. They decided to choose S. D. Perry to lead off with this two parter series, and so far it is very good…but not stellar.

Book Review: ‘The Search For Spock’

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is a novelization of the movie screenplay written and produced by Harve Bennett and adapted by Vonda N. McIntyre.

I have not reviewed too many movie novelizations before, mostly due to the fact that I generally don’t like them as much as original books. However, after the wonderful experience I had with J.M. Dillard’s The Undiscovered Country novelization, I thought I would give this one a try. The Search for Spock is up there as one of my favorite Star Trek movies, and I thought the book might provide some great insights…which it did!

The first 75 pages of this book is entirely new material. These are new scenes and new viewpoints that we never got in the movie. It does an excellent job of bridging the gap between the end of The Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock. Several characters are given viewpoints that the movie doesn’t, and I quite enjoyed them.
