Meanwhile, back at the Complete Starfleet Library website...

I've been playing with adding a forthcoming books list. The current version is here, and it links to another alternative I was toying with, a Google docs spreadsheet. The spreadsheet has certain advantages -- it's set up with five sheets, so though you can't manipulate the data you can see the list sorted five different ways. But it's easy to add links to the item entries on the good ol' HTML page. Might be doable on the spreadsheet, too; I'll have to investigate that. But how complicated do things have to be?

Meanwhile, the site's been updated with the info from TrekMovie.com's Margaret Clark interview. In the near future I'll post some comments on 2008 in review and how the future looks from here.

Steve: if you're inclined to play around with javascript, you can use Exhibit to provide interesting views of data stored in a Google Spreadsheet. This is what I'm playing with for a web page that displays Gold Key Star Trek comics from around the world.

Hmm... sounds interesting. I'll have to check that out. Thanks.

More google spreadsheet tricks - a google app that takes a published google spreadsheet URL and builds autofilters; here's the URL with your spreadsheet as an argument, hopefully without any typos
