BLOOD TIES—The novel-length sequel to “Something to Remember”, set post-ST:TMP, begins six months after the end of the first story. Spock takes the now-pregnant Christine back to Vulcan for a family reunion in order to present her to his clan for inspection and acceptance as one of them; in the process, they both must deal with certain ultraconservative elements of the clan, who are not pleased that another member of their ancient and revered family line has chosen a Human wife. This is driven home to Spock all too clearly when a cousin of his commits a horrifying (especially by Vulcan standards) act against Christine—in the name of preserving the Vulcan race from further contamination by Humans.

Sarek and Amanda accompany them, Sarek intending to testify on Kirk’s behalf—but before he can do so, Amanda is captured by aides to the Klingon Ambassador in an effort to prevent Sarek’s testimony.

OPERATION: T’HY’LA—An epic Kirk-Spock friendship
story spanning Federation, Klingon and Romulan space. This alternate-ending
spin-off of my earlier story, “Tashirya” (published in MORE FUTURE
VISIONS) was originally written at the request of then-zine editor/co-publisher
Bill Hupe. Set a year after ST:TMP, this story picks up from its predecessor
shortly before Kirk’s rescue of Spock. Here, Spock, having been
kidnapped by Kor, is first taken deep into Klingon space, then taken by the
Romulan/Human woman Tashirya back to her homeworld when she escapes with her
mother from Kor’s ship. Once there, Tashirya sets about trying
to undo the damage her mind-inverter has done to Spock—including restoring
his memory of Kirk’s survival of the Koon-ut-kal-if-fee ceremony on
Vulcan—though Spock remains in a near suicidal depression.
While she and her mother try to help Spock adjust to life among Romulans, Kirk, haunted by a mental distress call from Spock, embarks alone on a clandestine mission to find his friend that takes him across the Neutral Zone and through Klingon and Romulan space. But before he can bring Spock back, they face a traumatic situation that ruins their reunion and threatens to end their friendship. Hurt/Comfort and mature themes—deals with mind rape and physical abuse. Also includes several filks. Color kaleidescopic Kirk and Spock “Bond-Lights” cover and interior art by the author; comb bound, 140 pages. $11.00.
NO BEACH TO WALK ON—A trilogy of Kirk-Spock novellas dealing with death and lost love—and how Kirk and Spock together overcome the trauma of each.

Also includes filks. Color “Lost Loves” collage cover and interior art by the author; comb bound, 225 pages. $17.00.
