TrekMovie.com votes THE STRUGGLE WITHIN best Trek story of 2011
TrekMovie.com has put up several “Best of 2011” posts lately, and in their “TrekIn2011: Best Star Trek Books & Comics” post, they gave top honors to my e-novella Star Trek: Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within, calling it “[t]he clear winner for short stories and novellas (and in fact for all Star Trek fiction in 2011).”
Now, even getting just the short-fiction nod would be an honor, because the other candidates would’ve been the four novellas comprising Vanguard: Declassified, and that’s mighty tough competition. But best of all Trek fiction of the year? That’s rather mindboggling — and heartening, because frankly I wasn’t too happy with The Struggle Within and feared it wouldn’t work at all. Personally, my vote for the best of 2011 would’ve been Voyager: Children of the Storm by Kirsten Beyer. But I’m gratified that TSW has been so well-received, and I thank the TrekMovie staff for the recognition.
