"* "A great collection" -- TV Zone * "Excellent quality... would it be too much to ask that some of these writers get to write Trek novels of their own?" -- Dreamwatch

About the Author

Considered one of the most prolific writers working in modern fiction, USA TODAY bestselling writer, Dean Wesley Smith published far over a hundred novels in forty years, and hundreds of short stories across many genres. He currently produces novels in four major series, including the time travel Thunder Mountain novels set in the old west, the galaxy-spanning Seeders Universe series, the urban fantasy Ghost of a Chance series, and the superhero series staring Poker Boy. During his career he also wrote a couple dozen Star Trek novels, the only two original Men in Black novels, Spider-Man and X-Men novels, plus novels set in gaming and television worlds.

John J. Ordover previously edited and oversaw the Star Trek franchise licensed novels. He is also the co-creator of many Star Trek spin-off series.

Paula M. Block (with Terry J. Erdmann) is a co-author of the ebook novella Star Trek: Deep Space Nine—Lust’s Latinum Lost (And Found). She has also written the non-fiction books: Star Trek Costumes: Five Decades of Fashion from the Final Frontier; Star Trek Pop-Ups; Star Trek The Original Topps Trading Card Series; Star Trek The Next Generation 365; Star Trek The Original Series 365; Star Trek 101; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion; The Secrets of Star Trek: Insurrection; The Magic of Tribbles; and Star Trek: Action! Her additional titles include Monk: The Official Episode Guide and The 4400 Companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fourth installment, while not as strong-- still a must buy 30 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you ever wanted to grow up to write Star Trek books or movies-- get this book. I must disagree with most of the other reviews-- this book IS worth having for any Trek fan. (For non-fans you probably won't be interested.)
I will agree on the point that this book is not as strong as the first three, but that it is only off by a little. However, to say that the stories were not as strong, or somehow less than the other three is not true.
You will enjoy at least one story from each section, The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager for sure. For die hard fans you get to read stories by other fans! For would-be writers, actors or producers, the series shows you how 20+ people with no publishing experience can write a story and get it published.
Bottom Line: Its worth the paperback price and more.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice mix of stories 9 Jun. 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have thorougly enjoyed the 3 previous offerings of fan written Star Trek Short Stories and Volume IV while overall enjoyable was not filled with as many stories that truly stood out for me.
As usual a variety of writing styles just as you would find with any anthology of short stories. What truly makes these "Strange New Worlds" volumes so enjoyable is that the stories are all written by fans. Not professional writers but just people who enjoy the show and have expressed their appreciation for it by letting their imaginations soar. They pay tribute to a cultural epic they enjoy through the written word.
Two stories that I know I will be revisiting were the light and funny TOS piece "A Little More Action" and "Tears for Eternity", also a TOS story. But the one story moved me enough to be glad I bought this book. "Isolation Ward 4". If you enjoy trek and short stories you should appreciate the stories in "Strange New Worlds IV".
4.0 out of 5 stars Isolation Ward 4 5 Sept. 2015
By Lewmo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Did you ever wonder what happened to Benny Russell? Author Kevin G. Summers obviously did, and his critically-acclaimed short story "Isolation Ward 4" is included in this anthology. Through the journal of Russell's physician, Dr. Wykoff, we see how the various courses of therapy and the unrelenting march of time can change one's perspective, and even change the individual himself.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A thoroughly enjoyable collection of original Star Trek stories. I especially enjoyed "First Star I See Tonight" by Victoria Grant, "A Little More Action" by TG Theodore, "Missed" by Pat Detmer, and "The Promise" by Shane Zeranski. There are some very talented and creative writers included here!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing... 30 May 2001
By ren0901 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase the arrival of warm weather in Chicago (currently 50 and it's 30 May for cripes sakes...brrrr), I eagerly await Strange New Worlds. But starting from the cover (what is that thing on there?) to the absence of introductory remarks from DWS (yeah, I actually read me an idea on what went on during the selection process), SNW-IV left me wanting. Unlike I-III, IV only had a few stories that were interesting and/or entertaining. Granted, I have high expectations given the past three collections (and each were terrific). IV just seemed like it ran out of gas (ideas) and was just going through the motions for the sake of maintaining the franchise. I love fan many different point of views (fresh minds, new ideas) but only two stories are worth recommending, hardly enough to justify purchasing the book. Borrow a friends or check it out at your library...
