Book bits: New Frontier ebook series, schedule updates, and covers

Loads of books news today! First up, via posting a schedule of forthcoming book releases, there is a very interesting new development in the Star Trek enovella line. Set for release between July and September is Return, a three-part New Frontier ebook series, written by Peter David of course. Presumably this will be coming in place of the New Frontier novel that was expected this year (three novellas is basically a novel in three parts). also gave some new scheduling information for books which were previously just known to be coming. So filling out the remaining novel slots in 2015, from October to December, we have James Swallow's new Titan novel, Sight Unseen, the as yet untitled Seekers 4, by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, and Greg Cox's latest TOS novel, which revealed will be titled Child of Two Worlds.

In a seperate post also released the cover for the next enovella due for release, Scott Harrison's post-The Motion Picture story, Shadow of the Machine.

Continue after the jump for a reminder of the blurb for this book, and more cover art:

The crew has been granted a two-week period of shore leave before preparations for their next voyage begins. Shaken by their encounter with V’ger, Kirk, Spock and Sulu travel to their respective homes and must reflect upon their lives—now forever changed.

In other cover news, following the recent reveal of the cover for Tony Daniel's Savage Trade, Doug Drexler has posted (on Facebook) his artwork as originally submitted to Pocket, which included a planet, and a nebula by Ali Reis. Pocket decided on a deep space look for the final version:
