Welcome to the Starfleet Library blog

This blog is intended to serve as a supplement to the Complete Starfleet Library website. Established in 1999, the Complete Starfleet Library website is one of the most complete and long-running websites on Star Trek books. In addition to covering around a thousand Star Trek books published in English from 1967 to the present day, the site has two unique and often-cited special sections: the Star Trek: The Lost Books page, which describes dozens of lost (unpublished, withdrawn, and otherwise unavailable) Star Trek books, fiction and nonfiction, and a page devoted to compiling information on The God Thing, Gene Roddenberry's legendary unfinished and unpublished Star Trek novel.

What will you find here? If all goes according to plan, links to news on Star Trek books, occasional reviews, links to other useful websites, and Complete Starfleet Library website updates. Don't expect daily updates; the world of Star Trek book publishing is a lot quieter than it was a few years ago.

So why do this blog now? I started sjroby.blogspot.com two years ago with the intention of doing mainly this sort of thing, but it quickly started covering a lot more ground. But it's not ideal for the back and forth kind of discussions that can happen more easily on livejournal, so a lot of what used to happen on my original blog will probably move to steve-roby.livejournal.com. I'm not sure what will happen to the original blog... for the benefit of anyone who has a feed to that one, I may use it to link to the others when something's posted. Or maybe I'll get lazy again and end up with three moribund blogs. But I hope not.

Stay tuned...
