IN ADDITIION TO THE ABOVE BOOKS THERE ARE ALSO 7 OTHERS THAT EVERYONE DOESN'T MENTION CAUSE THEY THINK THEY ARE CRAP .I WILL LIST THEM HERE AND LET YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION.


1 VOICES BY John Vornholt
2 ACCUSATIONS BY LIOS TILTON
3 BLOOD OATH BY John Vornholt
4 CLARKS LAW BY Jim Mortimore
5 THE TOUCH OF YOUR SHADOW THE WHISPER OF YOUR NAME BY Neil Barrett, Jr
6 BETRAYALS BY S. M. Stirling
8 PERSONAL AGENDAS BY Al Sarrantonio
Geez, quit shouting.

IMHO, 1 thru 3, 6 & 8 are not crap. They are just nowhere near as good as 7, 9, and the three trilogies. The problem is, there are some mistakes, some of the situations are implausible, and/or the characterizations are off.

Book#1 "Voices" - Vornholt, John - 0-440-22057-2 - March-1995 - Dell

Book#2 "Accusations" - Tilton, Lois - 0-440-22058-0 - May-1995 - Dell

Book#3 "Blood Oath" - Vornholt, John - 0-440-22059-9 - October-1995 - Dell

Book#6 "Betrayals" - Stirling, S.M. - 0-440-22234-6 - June-1996 - Dell

Book#8 "Personal Agendas" - Sarrantonio, Al - 0-440-22351-2 - May-1997 - Dell




Also, to call 4 & 5 crap, is to insult crap, and 5 was worse than 4.

Book#4 "Clark's Law" - Mortimore, Jim - 0-440-22229-X - February-1996 - Dell

Book#5 "The Touch of Your Shadow, the Whisper of Your Name" - Barrett, Jr., Neal - 0-440-22230-3 - April-1996 - Dell



Here's three more that nobody mentioned:

"A Call to Arms" - Sheckley, Robert - 0-345-43155-3 - January-1999 - Del Rey
"In the Beginning" - David, Peter - 0-345-42452-2 - January-1998 - Del Rey
"Thirdspace" - David, Peter - 0-345-42454-9 - July-1998 - Del Rey

Of those, the Peter David books are the best. Sheckley's "A Call to Arms" while decidedly inferior to Peter David's novelizations, still did clear up some things I didn't pick up from the movie, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.
