Prose publishing schedule updates

According to TrekBBS user JD the latest Star Trek Magazine has a nice chunky report on Trek books; giving us several new titles, a schedule, descriptions, author comments and a cover for Seize the Fire. I won’t be able to get info first hand yet due to that lovely delay in the UK release of the magazine, but here’s the schedule as reported (all mass market paperbacks apparently) from March 2011:

-March: The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor’s Wing (Enterprise, reprint), by Micheal A. Martin
-April: Indistinguishable From Magic (TNG/crossover), by David McIntee
-May: DTI: Watching the Clock (crossover?), by Christopher L. Bennett
-June: Children Of The Storm (Voyager), by Kirsten Beyer
-July: Vanguard: Declassified (Vanguard anthology), by Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore, David Mack, & Marco Palmieri
-August: A Choice Of Catastrophes (TOS), by Steve Mollmann & Michael Schuster
-September. Blind Man’s Bluff (NF, reprint), by Peter David
-October: Cast No Shadow (TOSish), by James Swallow
-November: The Romulan War: In Shariel's Jaws (Enterprise), by Michael A. Martin
-December: 6th Vanguard novel, by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore
-January: Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions, by David Mack

Sounds like an amazing year! James Swallow made a brief note about his new novel on his blog: it is set around The Undiscovered Country and features Valeris and Elias Vaughn (very exciting combination of author, era and characters!).

UPDATE: TrekMovie's report on this schedule has copied over a few more details:
-DTI is set primarily between Destiny and Typhon Pact.
-A Choice of Catastrophes is described as "An original Star Trek era novel focusing on Dr. McCoy who finds "the past catching up with him", while Kirk and Spock explore a planet "not as abandoned as it seemed."
-Cast No Shodows is expanded upon as "dealing with terrorists trying to destroy the Khitomer accords, where a Starfleet Intelligence operative must join forces with the disgraced Valeris."
-In Shariel's Jaws will continue The Romulan War multiple point-of-view approach, and also "delves into ancient Vulcan mythology". TrekMovie also contradict JD's report and list this as a trade paperback (which would be consistent with the previous book).
-Rise Like Lions "deals with the final stages Emperor Spock’s bold plan for the Empire".
