This month

July ends so here comes the slightly less jam-packed August:

Prose:
Very little from Pocket this month, just one Corps of Engineers eBook, Remembrance of Things Past, Book 1, by Terri Osborne, part one of a TNG crossover to celebrate the series' 20th anniversary. The short story anthology Strange New Worlds 10 was meant to be out this month but it snuck out last month and the TNG novel Death in Winter was to reprinted in paperback but that has been delayed until September.

Comics:
The usual double dose from IDW this month, Issue 5 of Klingons: Blood Will Tell by Scott and David Tipton which concludes the miniseries with a story set entirely in the The Undiscovered Country framing story period. And Issue 2 of Year Four by David Tischman, telling another new tail from the forth year of Kirk's first five year mission on the Enterprise. Issue 4 of Blood Will Tell is also technically out this month, just a day late of it's scheduled month being released on the 2nd of August.

Toys:
Last months assortment of figures seem to have been delayed so this month should see the release of DST's third TNG wave, consisting of Doctor Beverly Crusher and Ensign Wesley Crusher in later TNG uniforms and limited edition "All Good Things..." version of Doctor Crusher and a Q figure in Starfleet Uniform.

Other:
Also from DST this month is the third and final part of their Landing Party statue diorama, the Spock figurine.

This month is also a new magazine month, with the release of the September/October issue (UK#134, US#7) which will be the same 100 page issue in the UK and US celebrating TNG's 20th anniversary. The magazine will include articles by Keith RA Decandido, Terri Osborne, Kevin Dilmore & Dayton Ward, Bob Jeschonek, Chris Dows, Andy Lane and Jake Black. With highlights to include a look back at the Strange New Worlds competition and a look forward to the forthcoming TNG novels, including an excerpt from Peter David's Before Dishonor. The Dilmore/Ward article will be looking at how TNG used TOS characters.

And finally in Region 2 from GE Fabbri this month are parts fourteen and thirteen of their Magazine and DVD collection Star Trek: The Collector's Edition, which will includes six TOS episodes from "Friday's Child" to "The Gamesters of Triskelion".
