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.

Today Roqoo Depot sends out two happy birthday greetings to Barbara Hambly and Vonda N. McIntyre, both Star Wars authors during the Bantam period and surprisingly born on the same day (though different years).

Barbara Hambly wrote two Star Wars novels: Children of the Jedi, and Planet of Twilight. She also wrote several short stories including Nightlily: The Lover’s Tale, Taster’s Choice: The Tale of Jabba’s Chef, and Murder in Slushtime. Born in San Diego, CA, Barbara would go on to get a Masters degree in Medieval History. Her first published novel was Time of the Dark. In order to facilitate her writing career, she often took jobs that allowed her to write including jobs as a high school teacher, model, waitress, technical editor, all-night liquor store clerk, and Shotokan karate instructor.
