Literary Treks 103: I Can Be Your Hero, Baby

Mere Anarchy: Things Fall Apart by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore

2006 saw the celebration of 40 years of Star Trek, and to celebrate, Pocket Books put together an e-book series comprised of six books that would span the entire Original Series timeline. Each story would build on the next as Kirk and his crew deals with the aftermath of a disaster on the planet Mestiko.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the first book in the Mere Anarchy series, Things Fall Apart. We discuss the setting, the dilemma of the people on Mestiko, Kirk's burden, The Prime Directive, and the series' long game.

In our news segment, we rave about Rob Caswell's new Seekers book covers for Long Shot and All That's Left.
