    Cabal Hill

    From 2002 to 2004, I wrote a series of six Star Trek The Next Generation: Stargazer books that fleshed out Captain Jean-Luc Picard's epic first command with the characters I originally established in Star Trek The Next Generation: Reunion. Fans still come up to me at conventions today asking about Commander Ben Zoma, the Asmund twins, the irascible Simenon or some other member of the Stargazer crew. At this level, you will receive all six Stargazer mass market paperback novels, as well as both a trade paperback version and a DRM-free e-book version of Cabal and Other Irresponsible Invocations of the Muse. Unfortunately, I cannot offer you e-versions of the Stargazer books. However, I can assure you that the e-version of Cabal and Other Questionable Invocations of the Muse will be suitable for viewing on either Kindle or Nook. Naturally I will be happy to sign all six Stargazer books plus the paperback anthology. Finally you will receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your generosity.
