Dragon's Honor - Star Trek (The Original Series / Classic Trek) - Pocket Books Novels (1979-present)

Pocket Books Novels (1979-present)

The script adaptation of Star Trek: The Motion Picture was actually published more than a year before the Bantam Books series of novels concluded. The paperback novels are sequentially numbered until early 2002 (#1 to #97, including the adaptations for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock), except for the expanded length novels and hardcovers reprinted as paperbacks. Several of the Pocket novels have been republished as omnibus editions or with modified titles when they become part of an arc or a series, such as The Yesterday Saga, Worlds Apart and Rihannsu.

The books were republished by Titan Books in the United Kingdom, with a different numbering system, from 1987 to 1993.

Famous quotes containing the words novels, pocket and/or books:

    The point is, that the function of the novel seems to be changing; it has become an outpost of journalism; we read novels for information about areas of life we don’t know—Nigeria, South Africa, the American army, a coal-mining village, coteries in Chelsea, etc. We read to find out what is going on. One novel in five hundred or a thousand has the quality a novel should have to make it a novel—the quality of philosophy.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    A lot of pop music is about stealing pocket money from children.
    Ian Anderson (b. 1947)

    Only my books anoint me,
    and a few friends,
    those who reach into my veins.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
